Teach This! Teaching with lesson plans and ideas that rock #teaching 05/17/2012
This question wall is a powerpoint that you can use on your interactive white board. It looks like it took quite some time to set up. This is one you want to download and keep in your resources folder for use when you want to adapt it for your course.
A collection of more than 100 videos that help you explore the world of mathematics. Just about any math topic is covered including probabilities Kaprekar's Constant and more. These videos will be useful if you're in the process of working towards flipping your classroom.
Meg blogs about many ways that she uses technology on Meg's Methods. Here she talks about visual lesson plans and how she leaves detailed instructions for teachers. I found Meg as she completed the challenges for the Flat Classroom book and decided to use the forum I created to let teachers leave comments on what they are doing. The purpose of those forums is to connect to teachers who are doing the challenges. Part of the challenge for me personally is filtering out the noise and finding real teachers doing real work so that I can learn and connect. These helpful, unselfish people (Like Meg) are my heroes. Even if each teacher only blogs once a month if you can find 100 of them and put them in your PLN, patterns will emerge.
They are here! My students have turned in their Freshman projects - they take 20% of their time working on a special interest project. Some great work here. One of my favorites is Morgan's apps for autism project but there are many great ones here.
