How to Connect With Other Teachers in the Social Age In the 2012 Primary Sources Survey conducted by Scholastic and The Gates Foundation, teacher respondents claimed to spend only about 4% of each day collaborating with colleagues, while 44% of teachers surveyed responded that they would like that collaboration time to increase. Traditionally, the teaching profession has been an isolating one—if you’re not spending every minute at school teaching classes, tutoring during your breaks, or covering someone else’s class, then you’re likely spending that time disciplining, administrating testing, or scrambling to the microwave to reheat leftovers during your 15-minute lunch break. In addition, as state and district mandates swing from one end of the pendulum to the other, teachers are so completely overwhelmed with trying to follow all of the rules that they are left with no time to develop themselves and their practices.

Learn More Our vision is simple! To provide an innovative form of professional development for educators in order to improve job satisfaction, increase workforce retention, and impact student learning. Executive Director, Edcamp Foundation and Founding Edcamp Board Member Director of Learning at Slack and Founding Edcamp Board Member Why Impresarios (Not Algorithms) Will Rule Web Video According to a number of predictors, and my friends, 2011 is going to be the year of curated video. The old, algorithmic approach is out, and instead we'll see audiences flocking to videos selected for your viewing pleasure by friends (in the case of Facebook) and experts (maybe even from YouTube). Yes, it looks like "curation" is bound to be the first big buzzword of 2011. But when it comes to video, before there was curation there was programming. The kind that big network honchos would do.

Its user interface is a neat alternative to Google’s own interface which turns your virtual docs into ‘physical’ files that are housed on your PC or Mac, making them infinitely more accessible and easier to view than through the standard Web interface.

About « The Overview Blog This blog is about the “Overview Effect”, the most commonly used term in the space community to describe the effect of space travel on the minds and lives of the astronauts. It’s dedicated to exploring every aspect of this experience; what causes it, the astronaut’s descriptions of its many aspects, as well as how the experience has affected them personally and often shaped their later lives; effects that they have nearly universally described as positive and often life changing.
