Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, November 5, 1:29 PM
This is a critical issue. The conclusion is retaining teachers is more important than recruiting them. This requires teachers learning from each others. Mentors are OK, but my experience was it was someone not associated with my school from central office. Leaders have to be more than managers, which is often what administrators are.

I think treating teachers as responsible people is also essential to retaining teachers.

Thinking about Theme: Anchor Chart & a Freebie

Thinking about Theme: Anchor Chart & a Freebie | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

Theme can be a tricky topic to teach and one that I try to touch on all year long with the different Teacher Time books and read aloud books we cover. My experience has been that when we discuss it all year long, students are able to deepen their understanding gradually, as opposed to an isolated lesson here or there. Plus, the added benefit of seeing them connect books through theme at this point of the year reminds me why it's often worth it to go slow on these more "out there" topics.

Coding – AMDSB EdTech Learning Community

Coding – AMDSB EdTech Learning Community | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Code is the language that a computer understands. Coding, in the simplest of terms, is telling a computer to do what you want it to do. This begins with breaking a task down into logically sequenced step-by-step commands for the computer to follow. Coding allows users to investigate, problem solve, explore and communicate through discovery, and it is a way to express ideas creatively.
