Hello all! My name is Miss L and I'm an education student from Manitoba, Canada. I actually just wrote a blog post trying to get some opinions from Canadian teachers, I would love for you to check it out and get some more viewpoints.
Anyone out there read this article? The ideal educational setting would use the strengths of Learners with challenges to teach to and adapt programs for those Learners rather than trying to "fix the problem"...A very thought provoking article.
My name is Dan Gillmor and I am a SH humanities teacher in northern Alberta. I am currently working on developing meaningful ways to engage my students using 21st C. practices. I look forward to conversations that take place along these lines as well as any others regarding the practice of education in Canada.
Hello Fellow Educators. I'm a Learning Assistance Teacher in Delta. I'm excited about collaborating with Teachers in my school and working hard to try and make School Based Team meetings a valuable use of time. UDL, simple action plans where everyone has a role in support and follow-up discussions seems to be working so far. I'd love to hear about other schools' SBT meetings, how they work for you, ideas/activities that you value or anything else to do with support systems in your schools. :D
Hi Nancy, I'm completing the SFU TLTC Coquitlam! Happy inquiring!
I'll look through my Diigo kellyjensen and find some resources. But my fav is simply Etherpad. Great opportunities for AFL practice.
Best of luck.
There are so many outstanding, free Web2.0 applications that are perfect for writing exercises in primary grades. Some of the best I've seen are: kidblog.org, storyjumper.com, storybird.com/teachers/, zooburst.com/,
myfakewall.com/, xtranormal.com/, edu.glogster.com/
and audacity.sourceforge.net/ (great free audio editor for podcasts)
I am very excited to have joined this group. The past 2 comments have touched many issues being explored in my classroom and school. I am currently learning about the New Literacies (Pahl & Roswel) and How People Learn: Brain, Mind, Experience, and School: Expanded Edition (2000). I teach in Squamish BC and am currently enrolled @ SFU Intergating technology COHORT. I look forward to furture discussiona d sharing of resources.
Hope you all have a great start to your school year!
