Leading and Learning at #ASCD #Empower18 – @ASCDconf @ASCD #ASCDEmpower18 #seeyouinBoston

If you were to glance at my bookshelf, one thing may stand out to you. On the spines of almost every book on my shelf you will find that the majority of the titles are published by one organization, ASCD. This would not have been the case a few years ago. Sure, I had a … Continue reading Leading and Learning at #ASCD #Empower18 – @ASCDconf @ASCD #ASCDEmpower18 #seeyouinBoston

Innovation Kitchen: What’s Cooking? – #NAISAC @NAISNetwork #TMILearns @TMIEpiscopal

I've never seen myself as a mountain climber, but after yesterday's Innovation Kitchen session at the NAIS Annual Conference, I am reconsidering. I love the metaphor of a school's journey to innovation as a climb up a Magnetic Mountain, a series of day hikes, ascents and descents, and summits of innovation. All the while, the … Continue reading Innovation Kitchen: What’s Cooking? – #NAISAC @NAISNetwork #TMILearns @TMIEpiscopal

What do comfortable clothes, a computer, a long school break, and professional development have in common? Engaged teachers in the Digital Age.

Guest post by Alice Bilbrey I've been a long-time user of Google Docs and Google Classroom as a part of my teaching practice, so I was thrilled when I received the go-ahead from TMI to open up a Google Classroom for my AP English Language and Composition course.

German Education Part One: Project-Based Learning – #BLOG365 Day 261 @TOPTeachGermany #TOPStudyTour #PBL #PBLChat

I have been holding off on posting about German education because I knew it would be a meaty post that required some time to flush out. So, this will be part one of a small series on German education. I can't do justice to the German education system in one blog post! Before I begin … Continue reading German Education Part One: Project-Based Learning – #BLOG365 Day 261 @TOPTeachGermany #TOPStudyTour #PBL #PBLChat

Using Video to Improve Instruction: Part 2 – #BLOG365 Day 207 @NBPTS #nbctstrong

At the time I had come across an old video of when I was doing an object-based lesson with students in my sixth grade world history class. Today a friend shot another video of me doing a lesson, using reciprocal … Continue reading Using Video to Improve Instruction: Part 2 – #BLOG365 Day 207 @NBPTS #nbctstrong

5 Reasons I’m Glad to Be a Member of @ASCD – #BLOG365 Day 176 #empower17 @ascdempower

When I sat down to be interviewed one of the first questions I was asked was "what do you think of when you hear ASCD?" A few thoughts came to my mind. … Continue reading 5 Reasons I’m Glad to Be a Member of @ASCD – #BLOG365 Day 176 #empower17 @ascdempower
