Hello, I am Matthew Kump. I am a first year graduate student (Curriculum & Instruction) and am also acquiring my secondary licensure. I am excited an nervous changing gears from Business & Marketing to Education. Over these past few years I have this new found love for learning and sharing and I want to share it. I want to bridge my technical knowledge with my future classroom. I still have a year or two, but it is something that really makes me excited that I could make a difference in someone's life like a few teachers I had in my childhood made a difference in mine.
Hi... I am an Adult Educator in WV and am trying to figure out ways to incorporate all forms of technology into my teaching. Most of what we do in our learning center is one-on-one so it is difficult to do group projects. I am working on a time line wiki, however, which I hope will be successful. It doesn't require a lot of teamwork.
I will be looking for creative ideas from all of you!
Hi! My name is Scott Lake and I am from central Pennsylvania. I am Pre-K teacher who is currently taking graduate courses at Wilkes University. I am new to the Ning network and look forward to exploring what all Ning has to offer.
I am Amy Lambert, from Mount Orab Ohio. I am a full time graduate student at Xavier University in Cincinnati, working on initial Middle Childhood licensure in social studies and science. My undergraduate work is in Anthropology and Archaeology. I am a substitute teacher and am currently serving in the United States Navy Reserves. My professor has required membership in classroom 2.0 for a class in Instructional Technology.
Yikes! I could not find out how to start a new forum so I thought I would post my question here.
I am looking for a news article I found a while back about reforming schools. I believe it was on msnbc.com, but am not 100% sure. It was about a principal who turned around a failing school near the Mexican border in either Texas or Arizona. He did it through reward for his students.
Did anybody else remember seeing this article? If so, could you send a link?
We need to turn around our failing school and are looking for ways to motivate students.
can't answer your question, but to start a new forum topic, click the "forum" tab at the top, then there is a red link on the right-hand top side called "+ Add Discussion" which I think would allow you to start a new topic
Hi all. I'm Angie Brennan and I teach 7 grade Life Science and 8th grade Earth Science in Pennsylvania, PA, USA at a private Catholic school. I also teach 8th grade Church History as a religion teacher. Interesting mix religion and science, it actually works vey well for me. There is a lot of interesting crossover.
I've been teaching for 6 years and love my school and going to work each day. I entered teaching through the back door, I actually have a background in social work. My husband and I have 2 children, both freshman in college, both adopted from Honduras, CA as infants. I am a Villanova University alum and a big VU basketball fan. What a year to cheer for Nova Nation!
I'm looking for great interactive smartboard tools to use and am overwhelmed by the possibilities out there. Most of what I am seeing are for K-6 or high school. I spend hours searching. What is a teacher to do?
This April my students will host our schools 4th Annual Climate Change Conference. We invite other schools to have their 8th grade students take part in a (school) year long environtmental project. Students join us in April to share what they have done including research and/or school and community wide projects. We have had approximately 100 eighth grade students together each year. My greatest victory - the kids are really interested in what each of the others schools has done. They are very respectful of each other during presentations, ask interesting questions of each other and of guest speakers we have present to the group.
