Check out this page with some valuable information about writing grants. This resource also provides links to available grants for teachers to pursue.
Here is a post from Ask a Tech Teacher’s blog. This is a great resource to access…from health to math, we got an app for that! Check it out!
With the advent of the wireless community, we see that more and more reputable sources are providing free professional development tools for our teachers. The following is a list of 50 FREE opportunities to deepen your STEM content knowledge online. Again, IT’S FREE!
Good resource for math teachers…Get your free trial now 🙂
The knower of mathematics needs to be able to stand back from his or her own knowledge, evaluate its antecedent assumptions, argue about the foundations of its legitimacy, and be willing to have others do the same.
(Lampert 1990, p. 32)
This app has incredible opportunity for teachers and students!
This is one of my visions for the future of our classrooms. In this video, I was in my office recording…I was trying to keep my voice quiet so the people around me didn’t think I was talking to myself (a few word fumbles, but you get the idea). Ultimately, I would love to start a library of student ShowMe’s in my district. This collection would highlight students solving interesting problems in interesting ways.
It is very exciting to be an educator now! This is so true! With the Common Core State Standards Initiative, the United States (most of the states have adopted them) have these common standards. The best part is the opportunity to come together with a common goal, college and career ready students by 12th grade. But what does this mean for the teacher? Well the first thing that comes to mind is planning…we now will be planning and collaborating with many teachers from all over the states. This will bloom into more collaboration and ability to share lessons with rigorous grade level standards.
Check out the following press release, the first step in aligning to these rigorous set of standards:
Common Core is developing new curriculum maps in Mathematics and in History/Geography.

Thanks, @JenniferOrmerod for sending me some great resources for the elementary grades. More to post, soon the apps will be up. 🙂
