Weiss owns and operates… Continue

Sharing: Video clips of sea life, gardens, butterflies, etc. set to relaxing music- useful with my students who have autism spectrum disorders

I created a set of high-definition videos for use on newer IWBs that I've found useful for students I work with who have autism spectrum disorders. I created shorter video clips for teachers to use in their lessons that also have a calming/relaxing effect on their students.

I'm in the process of experimenting with interactive video, using similar content.

Here is the link to my Classroom 2.0 video page:…

Spring Break Safety

Spring Break is right around the corner (some have already began their mid-season vacations) and Kiwi put together a list of tips and faux pas for both students and parents to consider during their holiday. A simple Google search on 'Spring Break' will provide a myriad of pictures displaying both young guys and girls, half naked and doing things that I am sure most teachers and parents would not approve of. Of course not all kids and teens will engage in the typical MTV type Spring Break, but… Continue

I have a severely disabled student in my music class. Great kid, very helpful, IQ around 50-60.

He has been using my iTouch and it seems to be working.

I would like him to be able to:

1. Do basic categories. Can he find a picture of a trombone by going to photos-instruments-trombone. Are there apps/games for categorizing?

2. Loud/soft, hi/low, fast/slow. All the basic music skills.

3. Any music related games, flashcards, etc...

4. Can we… Continue

It's About Connection

As a middle school teacher, if I have learned anything about being an effective teacher, I have learned it's all about connection. Not connection with 'the class' because there's no such thing as 'the class'. The connection(s) you must cultivate are those between you and each and every student.

Students will largely forget what you say to them but they will never forget how you made them feel. Connection offers the opportunity for you to build… Continue
