Okay, friends, I have been away from you all summer. However, that does not mean I have been idle. On the contrary, so many things have been happening that this seems like the busiest summer on record.
I’m only here for a very short time to offer you one good resource recommended by a friend of mine who is queen of the whole school schedule. We are recommending Planbook.com for scheduling classes and effective planning of your year, just a month or, perhaps, your whole life.
This website can be customized in so many ways including a 5 or 6 or 7 day schedule. Use it to partner plan or to plan your own classes.
For the pre-service teachers, get started planning for yourself and others. Do you know the unit plan you are working of for your practicum? Start with just that schedule and build a timetable that captures topics, lessons, outcomes and assessment.
Stay tuned for a fun filled year with various educational technologies including Adafruit Flora, more adventures in Arduino, Ozobots, and Bloxels. I’ll be learning how to have fun coding with Dash and Dot, two robots aimed at the elementary grades.
Learn about all sorts of educational technologies, games and low tech makerspace ideas to use for planning great adventures in the classroom.
