From Brick and Mortar to Laptop and Wifi: techEteacher Talks about the Transition to Online Teaching by @TecheTeacher

From Brick and Mortar to Laptop and Wifi: techEteacher Talks about the Transition to Online Teaching by @TecheTeacher

By Cary Fields

 

“I’ve been preparing for this job for 15 years, when do I start?”

At least that’s the way I pitched myself at a long awaited interview for my district’s very first online instructor position. On one hand it was a way to help pave new ground for them as well as myself, but on the other, it meant leaving my beloved classroom and my students behind. It would be tough, but I knew…

In the latest episode of the State of Tech podcast (Thestateoftech.org) I shared a cool Chromecast app called Photowall.

Experience Augmented Reality with colAR MIX by @InstTechTalk

By Jeff Herb

For those who haven’t heard much about augmented reality, it is a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user’s view of the real world – thus making it a computer generated hybrid of what actually exists and what is computer modified.

You can experience augmented reality and…

Why is it So Hard for Us to Parent? by @AnIowaTeacher

Why is it So Hard for Us to Parent? by @AnIowaTeacher

By Darin Johnston

We have a 13 year old daughter right now who’s going through some pretty typical middle school attitude issue for us. She’s an intelligent child, cute as a button, but hasn’t gained full control of her filter as she lets some things come out of her mouth that just make me wonder what in the world have we been teaching her. Along with lack of filter control, she’s also has no…

I saw this graphic on Facebook today. It was exactly what I needed to stay motivated. As the spring has sprung in Southern New Jersey, and everyone is outside, I am inside writing. Yes, it is a sacrifice, but I saw what everyone was doing today… and I applaud them! For me, I had a deadline, and a commitment that I made to myself in 1993… to…

Shakespeare Trivia with Remind101 by @CTuckerEnglish

By Catlin Tucker

At the start of our Othello unit, I wanted to get my students excited about Shakespeare. This is no small task as most high school students cringe and recoil when they hear the name William Shakespeare. They assume they will hate every moment of reading his plays. Each year I am on a mission to prove them wrong!

On the first day of our unit, I sent a Remind101text to all of my…
