So today I stumbled upon MentorMob.com. I was blown away by what I found. I had stumbled upon an on-line community where anyone and everyone can create learning playlists. Instead of navigating through a Google search that often presents you with tons of hits, but hours of weeding through, MentorMob makes it easy to get to the best quality answers. Playlists on how to add and subtract fractions to The Diary of Anne Frank, to how to conduct PBL lessons for teachers. All educators have got to check this out and integrate it into the classroom. Good Stuff!!
Twitter is exploding today with information about flipping the classroom. Check out the link posted here for some very cool resources and “how to’s” on flipping the classroom. There are so many layers to it in order to do it right! Educate yourself and be ready to implement at the start of next school year.
Check out this great blog. Sue Waters and Ronnie Burt regularly talk about resources educators can use in the classroom complete with a lot of “how to” instructions. A great blog to add to your daily reads.
