Some Things to Know! Part 1…

This post will be just a scoche different than the normal post – a reset if you will.  I started this blog to share teaching ideas for using educational technology in the classroom.  Graduate school hijacked some of those thoughts and turned them into more deep thinking issues about teaching and learning.  This is not bad – it was just different than I planned.  I will continue to post these types of thoughts because we must always think on our practice.  Always.

I have started a podcast called The Drive and would love it if you would give it a try and give me your feedback.  Do you like it?  Has it challenged your thinking?  Has it provided an opportunity to explore something new or different? I was originally posting all of the latest podcasts as part of my blog – but they have a new home on their own static page (a page that does not change).  If you have missed an episode or are wondering what I am talking about, click right here.  Please, please, please take just a few short minutes and provide your feedback – would love for this to be a great podcast for teachers, what needs to make it so???

I will be putting together, one small piece at a time, a website for professional development for teachers.  I hope to make it fun and exciting for you and hope you will participate.  Here is a very small sample of what is coming.  It will launch when there are a couple of units ready – hopefully by mid-October.  I want this to be epic – so I am going to try and set a strong foundation.  I will be pulling ideas from the poll you took earlier.  Feedback it super important here – do I get your attention?  I I hope you enjoy it!

Lastly – be on the look out this weekend for a blog about flipping your classroom.  I truly think that this model can give a teacher greater freedom to teach every student where they are.  I know that equity can be an issue and I hope to address some of the possible barriers.  Is the flipped classroom a golden bullet?  No.  Can it be a powerful tool in the belt of a teacher?  Yes.  Can you do this at any grade level?  Yes.  Stay tuned…

You guys are awesome – thank you for reading!  Have a #Brilliant Day!


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
