Educators as Collaborators: 25+ Resources– Are you thinking of having your students collaborate in teams? Check out these tips and free resources for getting your students to collaborate with their peers in their classroom or worldwide!
Education Needs Reflective Educators– Read about the Blog 4 Edu (The Blogging for Education project) project, a Twitter account (@Blog4Edu), wiki, Posterous blog, and Facebook page to help support bloggers, blogging projects, and blogging challenges. Our vision is to persuade as many educational stakeholders worldwide to blog.
My personal favorite post this month was, Sharing Our Voices & Reaching Our Audience– In order to get buy-in from other educators, our administrators, and the general public, we have to show them the impact of our online professional development on our teaching and the impact on the students. We need to communicate our passion effectively. We have to persuade, convince, and change minds. Changing minds means we have to get folks to listen. Therefore, I’m collaborating with other educators in starting a virtual Toastmasters to improve our speaking skills! Our first meeting will be on Saturday, December 18th at 12noon EST, 9am PST, 5pm GMT, 6pm Paris, 7pm Athens/Istanbul, 2pm Argentina Time! Enter the Elluminate room here, https://sas.elluminate.com/site/external/jwsdetect/dropin.jnlp?sid=vclass&password=LPCBZLAT4D3Y921591JT! Thanks to Edublogs and Elluminate for the opportunity!
