8 Classroom Management Tips--From Google? by Jennifer Rita Nichols, TeachThought Intern One of the biggest struggles facing new teachers is figuring out how to effectively manage a classroom. This is very different from teaching–make no mistake about it! Most of us learn how to teach in our teacher education programs. We learn about the curriculum and standards that must be followed. While there may be a class or two where classroom management strategies are discussed, what is taught during those lessons focuses on strategies that can be applied rather easily in an ideal classroom. Beyond the fact that most new teachers start with far less than an ideal classroom, these strategies are taught to them by teachers with years of experience–teachers who have already figured out the role of ‘classroom manager’. Eventually all teachers can figure out how to manage, but many don’t stick around long enough to work it all out.

The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K-12 students. The TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments: active, collaborative, constructive, authentic, and goal directed (Jonassen, Howland, Moore, & Marra, 2003). The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells. What is in each cell? Within each cell of the Matrix one will find two lessons plans with a short video of the lesson.

This is a quality peer-reviewed journal. Contribute to the Next Issue Submission deadline: July 15, 2013 Fall/Winter 2013 Issue Theme: Common Core State Standards: Policy, Alignment, Instruction, and Assessment The Common Core State Standards (CCSS), adopted by 45 states including Washington, will need to be implemented quickly by schools and districts so that teachers and students will be prepared for new assessments scheduled to commence in 2015.

What shifts in assessments of student learning are taking place in response to CCSS, and what are the possible impacts of these shifts on districts, schools, teachers, and/or students?
