Digital Promise

Whether through Pinterest boards, YouTube lesson demos, or conversations with colleagues in the faculty lounge, I find myself and my fellow teachers increasingly turning to informal, unconventional methods to develop and hone our craft.

Learning. Learning for guided reading, but now I could utilize their resources for close reading strategies as well. Learning , I now felt like I had not only a framework of how to structure my lessons over the course of a few days but I also had the materials available for me to plan and students to utilize.

Shortcut for Adding Hyperlinks to Google Docs & Slides (Sheets & Drawings, Too!)


I finally noticed it this summer when watching multiple people add links to docs and slides during a professional learning session. See my quick tutorial video below for a demo of this. Because it often helps me to see a demo of a new-to-me skill, I made a short tutorial video on how the process works. Have you ever discovered that something you usually do with a tech tool in multiple steps can be done far more easily/efficiently in fewer steps?

Judge, Jury and Education Startups: Reflections From the SXSW EDU Launch Competition

OPINION: Confessions of a white teacher in an urban school

The Hechinger Report

No demo lesson, no series of interviews. These were learning games glued into file folders for all subjects. It was personalized learning! I learned that we can constantly learn from the mistakes we make in the classroom. I learned my way wasn’t the only way.

Summit Up! Soundboard New Orleans


What I did not expect was to become part of a community of educators who were thirsty…hungry, not to only learn, but to share! This was a “hey, I know this tip…what do you have” type of learning playground that I had not had the privilege to be a part of too often. It was amazing to see educators band together during their personal time at a location that was completely unfamiliar for many of them to learn from not just the presenters, but from each other. But I did learn!

Evaluating Digital Curricula for the 21st Century District


Assess whether the digital curricula will address students’ learning needs, rather than just being centered around the use of new technology. Plan backwards and have learning goals be the driver to accomplish this. Finally, plan learning experiences and instruction around that. Before adding technology into a curriculum, look at your learning design in general. Be sure to assess what the students already know and start from there when supporting their learning.

A Principal's Reflections

Many of the initiatives that I am about to pursue either came directly or indirectly from my Personal Learning Network (PLN).

Social media is an essential marketing tool for educational publishers.
