So many great websites to explore on your own time. I like the concepts behind "Wait But Why" and several others in which students are challenged by real-life situations and hypothetical instances.

Technology: I chose this resource because this gives teachers actual websites that they can go to in order to integrate technology into the classroom. My hope is that I can use this resource to pass on to our schools that are getting new interactive boards into their classrooms this school year.

Creativity | Psychology Today

Creativity | Psychology Today | PL Moving Forward | Scoop.it
Even those of us not in explicitly creative fields must come up with new ideas and insights in order to move ahead. How can we shake up our thinking patterns? Creativity has been pegged to conducive environments, perfect collaborators, personality traits, serendipity, and even spiritual muses. While research psychologists are interested in increasing innovative thinking, clinical psychologists sometimes encourage patients to use artistic expression as a way to confront difficult feelings.

Great list of articles about creativity.

Ellen Dougherty's curator insight, August 1, 2015 11:52 AM

If you were to put together 12 rules that make a teacher a great teacher what would they include? Sit back and think about that, and then look at this post by Terry Heick, where he shares the rules he has come up with as well as the reasons for the rule. A few are listed above, and three more are below.

* Start small.

* In learning, curiosity is everything.

* Help students ask great questions.

Click through to the post to read through all his rules and find a bonus of three additional rules that you may want to add. You will also find links for resources for three of the rules.

With the popular explosion of Minecraft among middle schoolers and beyond, it’s worth noting that it isn’t the only open world virtual environment with educational value. Nor is it always the most ideal game for teaching every concept, leading other games are picking up the slack. As a result, inspired educators and students are taking notice and branching out.
