Top 13 web 2.0 tools for teachers Every day in my K-8 tech classes, I use a variety of cloud-based tools to enhance the learning experience for my students. There are more of these 'Web 2.0' tools than I can keep up with, but when you teach tech or coordinate technology for your school, 'keeping up' is part of your job. Here's how I determine which of these hundreds (thousands?) of tools are student-ready: Before I introduce a tool to my class, I try it myself. If a tool passes these two tests, I try it in class. Here's my list of 2011 favorites that have run that gauntlet: BigHugeLabs - create trading cards, posters, puzzles, mosaics using the student's own images. Here are a few more great ones that I didn't consider in my Top 13 because most educators already know about them: Edmodo - a micro-blogging service (like Twitter) for teachers and students. Should be on the list, but I've had too many problems either in their set-up or stability of their platform:

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Teachers Easy Guide to The Most Important Web Tools in Education When it comes to using web resources with our students, time plays a decisive role.It is next to impossible for a busy teacher restricted by curriculum constraints, day to day lesson preparations, assignment corrections, to mention but a few of his chores, to effectively search the web and find the adequate resources to share with his/ her students. Most people just do not have the time to learn all these technologies and some educators pick just one or two websites of interest and start exploring them. This is definitely not the right thing to do particularly if you want to leverage the huge potential of technology into your classroom.There is, however, a simple roudabout to this problem. Look for educational technology blogs ( such as the one you are reading now ) and subscribe to their feeds to stay updated about the latest web tools to use in your instruction. 1- A List of The Best Video Editing Tools for Teachers 2- A List of The Best Digital Story Telling Tools for Teachers

15 Conflict Resolution Tricks Every Educator Should Know Teachers wear many hats: counselor, coach, referee, probation officer. With the pent-up energy and (later on) the raging hormones wreaking havoc on students’ sanity, conflict is bound to occur in classrooms and on school playgrounds, meaning teachers have to be ready to put on their “mediator” hat at a moment’s notice. If you’re a young educator and want to have some conflict resolution tricks up your sleeve before you’re thrown into the ring, or you’re an experienced educator looking for some new ideas, we’ve lined up 15 techniques to help you win the fight. Like your students: Isn’t it true that we treat people we like differently than people we can’t stand? We’re probably more patient, more understanding, and slower to become angry with them.

Enhancing Education: The 5 E's The 5 E's is an instructional model based on the constructivist approach to learning, which says that learners build or construct new ideas on top of their old ideas. The 5 E's can be used with students of all ages, including adults. Each of the 5 E's describes a phase of learning, and each phase begins with the letter "E": Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate. The 5 E's allows students and teachers to experience common activities, to use and build on prior knowledge and experience, to construct meaning, and to continually assess their understanding of a concept. Engage: This phase of the 5 E's starts the process. An "engage" activity should do the following: Make connections between past and present learning experiences Anticipate activities and focus students' thinking on the learning outcomes of current activities. Explore: This phase of the 5 E's provides students with a common base of experiences.
