Its been a really busy two weeks! Now it is time to decompress

Finally back home!  Model schools was a really great conference to attend!  I hope that one day we have to opportunity to go back and see what is new in the world of next practices.  Today’s sessions were pretty good – looked at what technology needs were going to be for the Common Core and also threw in the Jeff Gordon Prank.  Its amazing how a relationship changes when people know that you are an expert and how they will totally trust you!!  We also had a chance to see some great ways to open and close lessons…One of the things that I really liked was creating a movie trailer (see this post)!  But also got some other really good ideas to try out for closing the day as well.  I think that I may try and incorporate twitter on a frequent basis at the end each period.

The trip home was uneventful!  Glad to be back and now am ready to start sorting out all of these ideas into some semblance of a plan of action!


About Scott

My name is Scott. After 18.5 years as a high school math teacher in public education I have made the move to become a full time PhD student. This decisions was difficult, but has been one of the most rewarding things that I have ever done. Teaching in high school was an incredible experience for me, so leaving an environment that I loved for the unknown was a challenge. As I high school teacher, I taught almost every math course that could be offered. I was able to earn National Board Certification in Young Adult Math. I was honored as my building Teacher of the Year, no mean feat at Edmond Memorial High School!! My career changed as I became fascinated with educational technology and all of the things that it can do for teachers. I flipped my class. I used iPads and blogging (in high school math!!). I started using gamification and mastery learning. I changed my practice. I chose to go back to school to learn as much as I could. To bring that knowledge from academia and research to the teacher on the front line. I have had the opportunity to present at several conferences and share what I have learned with others. Its through these connections that we can be the best teachers we can for our students. They deserve it and we sell ourselves short when we don't give it. I love talking with teachers about change. About incorporating educational technology. About the power that they have to change lives. My blog space is me, it shares my passions and frustrations, my joys and my learnings. If you are interested in what I am studying, please visit my graduate school pages. If you are interested in the flipped classroom, I have some links to get your started. I would love to meet you! Do not hesitate to reach out! I would enjoy the opportunity to work with your staff or trade ideas with your teachers - let me know! Have a great day! #BeBrilliant
