Tools for Teachers Teacher Training: Web Resources for Staff Development A first year teacher feels overwhelmed. A principal needs an evaluation rubric for integrating technology. You're looking for a listing of summer workshops for teachers in your area. Where do you turn? Educators are well known for the mountains of manuals, memos, policy statements, and other paper resources stacked up in their offices, but the next time you need staff development materials, you might want to try surfing the Web instead of rooting through those teetering paper mountains. Web based resources save time. Still need convincing? NSDC Staff Development Library The National Staff Development Council provides dozens of training articles and tools, available to both non-members and members. Many of the recommended resources contain links to other Web sites, which link to others, and so forth.

Every Educator Has a Story . . . Just Tell It. This is one of my favorite cartoons ever. The “punch” line is that every person on the planet has a story to tell. I also know that every teacher story to tell. Educators are doing amazing things with their learners in spite (i.e., to show spite toward) of the standards-based and accountability-driven movements. This is my own call to action for educators to tell their stories of those rich and amazing things they are doing in their classrooms. Write a blog.Tweet about it.Make photo essays and upload to a photo sharing site like Flickr.Take some video footage and share it on YouTube, TeacherTube, or Vimeo.Ask learner to blog about it.Share on Facebook.Give virtual presentations at conferences such as Global Education and K12 Online.Ask local reporters to come to your classroomOthers? For example, I am incorporating students’ mobile devices into an undergraduate course on Interpersonal Relationships. I now have a record/reflection about the class. Like this: Like Loading...

Programming Your Brain: The Art of Learning in Three Steps | BitNative From time to time, I run into people who are interested in breaking into programming. Last night at the company holiday party a guy (we’ll call him Sam) walked up and introduced himself, asking for advice on how to move from his current role over to development. Sam’s attitude impressed me – those with a genuine desire to learn go places quickly. And on many occasions I’ve hired someone very green simply because I could sense a genuine interest in the craft and a hunger for knowledge. Obviously, the road to becoming a better developer begins with learning. Watch someone Thus, I personally watch videos or read books and blogs. Now, be forewarned that according to National Training Laboratories, the percentages on this diagram have no known source behind them, so take my references to the absolute percentages with a grain of salt.
