The 21st Century Skills Teachers Should Have
Last year all of the students in our school district received Google Docs accounts and I was kept quite busy all year getting students up and running and then finding innovative ways to use the tools for learning.

Can't figure that one out. But, if you can't attend a training workshop locally, you can always benefit from those who have posted videos and information online.

Credit: Francis DaSilva The students in my general chemistry class almost never open their textbook. My reason: The less I use the book, the more they learn. While some textbooks are excellent, most bore my students and frustrate me. "Readability formulae" produce mind-numbing prose. No Books, No Problem: Teaching Without a Text
