Must Have Poster about 21st Century Skills

I agree with the author of the Educational Technology and Mobile Learning Blog, Med Kharbach, his poster should find place on the walls of each classroom: It is a good reminder of what skills teachers need to focus on when teaching their lessons in different subjects.

Great iPad Tips for Teachers

I am excited to see more and more blog posts about using iPads in the classrooms. I even opend a page on Scoop.It and on Pinterst about iPad in the classrooms.
This is an interesting blog post about a few tips for teachers.

An Unexpected Invitation

I got a call yesterday evening from one of my global friends from the Ukraine, a professor from the Ukrainian Pedagogical University, Dr. Tatyana Zubenko. We collaborated in the International Snowblog project  in 2010 and then she took classes with IT4ALL on Moodle afterwords. She is a very tech-savvy professor. Tatyana invited me to participate in the International webinar-conference "Pedagogical Education as a Condition of the Sustainable Development of the Society: Technological Aspects." It was a great feeling to participate in something that was arranged for the first time. The provost of the University greeted the participants and I was the first to present. I was sharing my experience with the Global Collaborative Projects and the technologies used to support collaboration and student engagement. It was difficult for me to speak Russian after 12 years speaking only English  as far as the Web 2.0 terms is concerned. I am used to discuss these topics in English.
Here is the link to my presentation: Global Collaborative Projects: What, How and Why.

Blogging about Teaching with Common Core Standards

Remember this Blog!

I love the "Free Technology for Teachers" blog by Richard Byrde. He always is ahead of everybody with the new findings on the technology tools for teachers. His new post is about the Google Search and the corresponding Common Core standards. While he was preparing for a seminar for teachers in the Rockingham County public schools district, in North Carolina,  he selected the Google Search tools and aligned them with the CC standards.
