The field of educational technology is full of tools that teachers can use with just one device, making it possible and equitable to integrate tech tools in your class. No, it’s not just using tech for the sake of using tech- all of these tools have the power to significantly impact your instruction.
Technology as an instructional tool can be especially powerful when used to conduct formative assessments since it has the ability to provide feedback instantly. Feedback must be timely, personalized, and specific in order for it to truly transform our classrooms.
Twitter is a strong community of educators. We lift one another up, collaborate, and celebrate all that is positive in classrooms around the world. For real. We even celebrate Mondays. No, we are not crazy. You should try it sometime! #CelebrateMonday and all that is good in our schools!
I will not give them power over my learning anymore. I am the only one responsible for finding meaning in professional learning. Me. Not an administrator, a state legislator, my current boss, or even my current professors. Me. I am the only one responsible for my professional learning by relating concepts to my life, interests, and lifting up other like minded educators. And learning from those who I respectfully disagree with.
