Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 21, 7:57 PM

It depend what you are trying to quit. A bad habit can be hard to quit. Something you love, but know is not good for you is hard to quit. It took me several years to leave the classroom. I loved what I did as much as being in School with many adults who did not support what we did.

About | The Art of Ed

About | The Art of Ed | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
AboutJess-Three-HeadshotsHi, I’m Jessica Balsley, founder of The Art of Education.A few years ago, I was working towards my masters degree, and discovered it was nearly impossible to find relevant professional development opportunities out there for art teachers. Through this personal experience, the idea for The Art of Education was born.After that, my husband Derek and I set out on a mission to provide Ridiculously Relevant™ Professional Development to Art Educators around the world. What started as a blog, quickly morphed into a catalog of 15+ online classes for Art Teachers, and an online magazine with daily articles, tips, tricks, videos, and the first ever online conference just for art teachers.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Those that cannot get to a state or national conference this year might want to try this online conference. It is always good to see how others have approached things,though many of you may be using or doing some of these same things in your own ways. This looks like a good conference that I may check out and get back to you about. The listed online courses are fairly high to me if they are not connected to direct course credit for an advanced degree, unless you are sure you need special info on a subject you have weakness about. There were no samples of instruction that I could find and the details seemed vague and generalized. Great Courses offer more in depth art history and museum back grounds for far less if you watch their sales. The conference looks like it might be a good buy. I and many others offer great links to many with great ideas to share for free these days as well. You may want to connect with teacher links to offer your ideas and plans for sale at some of the teacher share plan sites that offer that service. Juno is one I know of where you can set a price or offer free ideas, test and so forth to other teachers. Please feel free to add in the comments any teacher sites that allow you to sale or free offer your plans or that you have tried and liked. If anyone has participated in this conference let us know what you think as well.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 19, 7:09 PM

I read Wendell Berry's work and he asks many of the same questions. Values are what give us strength and courage (the French valoir). They ground us in our working and living giving us a sense of purpose and trueness. Trueness is the moral compass we seek in making sound ethical choices in daily life.
