Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, April 1, 2013 6:07 PM

We met Lisa and Wanda last year as co-teachers but this year they have added Susie to their K-2 co-teaching team in a personalized learning environment. They call their classroom "The Garden".

 

Their philosophy is that just like flowers, we all grow differently, in different situations and at different times.  And, just like flowers, we bloom! Their B.U.D.S. acronym helps us to remember this:

Believe that we can learn ANYTHING
Understand what we really need to know
Discover these things
Share our learning with others so that they can grow through collaboration

 

Learn more about how the learners in "The Garden" are growing, sharing and teaching each other!

How Prezi is Changing Presentations

How Prezi is Changing Presentations | Teachers and Learners | Scoop.it
Find out how Prezi is changing presentations – not just as a tool, but as a mindset.

"...I believe Prezi is more than just a presentation tool – it’s a symbol (and opportunity) for changing the way we approach presentations; and one more step along the road away from ‘death by PowerPoint’."

9 Tools to Create E-magazines and Newspapers for Your Class

9 Tools to Create E-magazines and Newspapers for Your Class | Teachers and Learners | Scoop.it

I am pretty sure as you introduce the idea to your students everyone will want to have a say in their next e-magazine. There is nothing much more rewarding to students then to have a proof of their hard work recognized in a publication of some sort.

 

Most of the tools cited here are easy to use and have user friendly interface and they will let you create your own e-magazine or newspaper in few simple steps. Yet I would recommend your discretion as you use them with your students.
