Class Charts Whole School is Free for Teachers 17 Apr Earlier this year I shared Class Charts, the behavior management tool for creating seating charts in your classroom. They have recently launched Class Charts Whole School which uses student behavior profiles to create seating charts. This happens automatically thanks to an artificial intelligence engine that monitors behavior trends and identifies which students are in need of interventions. Now teachers using this free program can manage behavior in real time and synchronize their class’ data with the whole school.

A Science Mini-Unit Living and Non-Living - Kindergarten Kindergarten This is a quick little unit that teaches children about living and non-living things. I find that most kindergartners can almost always tell you what things are living and what things are non-living, but they cannot tell you why.

The “Flipped” Classroom and Transforming Education Recently, I wrote a post regarding some ideas that I did not believe that would transform school culture. Although most agreed on two of the ideas that I shared, there was a large contingent of educators that argued regarding the “flip” and are very passionate about what it can do for the classroom (one even referred to me as a “nut” for even suggesting this!). Also, Forbes magazine talked about the Khan Academy and the “flipped classroom” being one of the most important stories of 2012.
