#edublogsclub – Giveaway

a hand reaching out

This one was tough, which is why it is weeks late being posted.  I couldn’t come up with one thing that would be interesting to give away besides ideas. Here’s what I settled on…. a giveaway of an incredibly short activity I am going to do on Monday based on an video I happened upon while …

#edublogsclub – The Pendulum

#edublogsclub pendulum

The first suggestion for ideas to write about for this post was: Write a post about learning styles and your thoughts on the recent research suggesting they are an ineffective teaching/learning tool. Confession time:  Do you know what I did for the first week of my very first week of being a French teacher?  The …

#edublogsclub – Giving Feedback

Fast Feedback My new guideline for myself is that I don’t give an assignment for feedback unless I know I can get to reviewing it by the next day.  Within two days max.  Weekend at the very, very latest. There’s several ways you can give feedback when you’re using Google Classroom.  You can use Goobric (and …

#edublogsclub – Student Privacy

#edublogsclu - student privacy

Having just attended an EdTech Summit on Friday in which there was an hour and half presentation by a lawyer about the laws and regulations governing student privacy,  you’d imagine I’d have something interesting to add to this topic…but not so much. In addition to making sure that I do my best to insure student …

#edublogsclub - Listicle

I did a training a few weeks ago and someone asked me what my “favorite” tools were.  I thought it was a great question, so here’s what I can’t live without on a daily basis. Tab Resize Extension.  It takes two tabs and puts them side by side.  You can also use Tab Scissors.  I …

#edublogsclub – Challenging Situations

My 5 Step (Mostly) No Fail Method for Dealing with Challenging Situations. I step away from the email.  I am trying to live by the mantra do not email angry.  This is a continual struggle. I find someone who knows more than me to give me advice.  I have a list of colleagues and friends I …

#edublogsclub – Free Web Tools

#edublogsclub Free Web Tools

I thought this prompt of free tools was intriguing and I encourage you to read Musicuentos.com post, “Supporting the Community.” My absolute favorite free web tool is Google Image Search.  It revolutionized my lessons- being able to pull in images on anything at any given time.  But that’s not a very interesting or unique tool.  (However, …

#edublogsclub – Leadership

#edublogsclub - leadership

What a topic.  Leadership.  This is such an important topic and something I’ve thought a lot about as I had to endure a poor leader or flourish with an inspiring leader. Here’s my two cents.  I think a lot of the qualities of an effective leader are those that also make an effective teacher.  The best school …

#Edublogsclub – My office and classroom

#edublogsclub 2

I’m very lucky because even though I no longer have classes at the high school, I was still allowed to keep my classroom as my workspace.  This was partly because as the after school coordinator my room is used after school for a variety of activities and during the day as a meeting space for …

So here’s the first one! I’m definitely new to educational blogging.  I blogged for a while for …
