Blogger. 10 Minute Teacher Podcast. Teaching students with new tools, enthusiasm, and belief that teaching is a noble calling. This is an archive of my blogger blog since I started blogging here before I set up www.coolcatteacher.com
This is a powerful post full of thoughts on teaching, inspiration, and tragedy. The most inspirational teacher at the middle school never knew it and quit. She didn't get the last day when she would hear an essay about how she was the most inspirational teacher at the school. She didn't get the last day because her house and the school auditorium where the essay would have been read and the essay itself are now all gone. Tragedy upon tragedy. We need ways for teachers to know that they are inspirational.
A prominent blogger is now saying that he will not blog it if it can be tweeted.What do you think? In many ways this excludes the many people who are not on twitter. I think there has to be a happy medium.
Excellent write up on the uses of technology integration information from the Florida Center for Instructional Technology. This is an incredible example of how a good blogger (like Richard Byrne) can take what looks very complex and help his readers understand what they will get out of it.
Of course, I could have written my own take, but since Richard does such a good job, why should I. Which brings us to another point about blogging - we give credit and don't "snarf" blogposts from others as many of the trolls out there are doing.
