Ideas, Ideas, and More Ideas! 6 Storytelling Apps That Get English Language Learners Talking For English language learners (ELLs) in the classroom, speaking English in front of others — particularly native speakers — can cause tremendous anxiety. In fact, the dread of speaking can actually interfere with students’ ability to learn. Even with the most well-planned, immersive, real-world learning opportunities, the brains of students with high anxiety won’t be receptive to learning, according to Stephen Krashen’s “Affective Filter Hypothesis” (and the brain research that supports it). So how can we design speaking activities that don’t make our students’ hearts race and palms sweat? Digital storytelling can be an effective way for ELLs to practice speaking English without the stress of being “on stage.” Apps and tech tools allow students to practice in the comfort of their own home by themselves or with a caregiver.
Impressive Internet Facts That Are Sure to Blow Your Mind! - Host Advice Since the Internet first became a major part of our society and our general everyday living, it has fast become a major part of not just businesses looking to increase their global reach and presence, but driving the Worldwide economy which now heavily relies on the Internet in this technological age.

How to Manage Cell Phones in the Classroom When I ask the students why they are so attached to their devices with the small (some aren't so small) screens, I invariably get the response, "It's my life." I just don't get it and probably never will, but here is my attempt at understanding. After careful observation, I have determined that the cell phones are analogous to what happened when the Walkman first appeared on the scene for the older generation.
Four Skills to Teach Students In the First Five Days of School Jane Mount/MindShift The first few days of school are a vital time to set the right tone for the rest of the year. Many teachers focus on important things like getting to know their students, building relationships and making sure students know what the classroom procedures will be. While those things are important, Alan November, a former teacher-turned-author and lecturer says the most important ideas to hammer home will help students learn on their own for the rest of the year. “The name of the game is to find the right information with the right question,” said November during a workshop at the 2014 gathering of the International Society of Technology in Education in Atlanta. Teaching in Room 6: 5 Great Websites to Use in Upper Elementary As school winds down, and we begin to think of the upcoming year, I thought I would bring you some *must use* websites in your upper elementary classroom. Now, these websites aren't really sites that the KIDS use (although, I supposed they could). These are websites that I, as a teacher, use WITH my students to enhance their education while in my classroom. I wouldn't just put a list of these up for the students to peruse on their own. Again, the kids *could* use them, but I have found in my own experience that these really work well when I am using them as part of my lessons.
