DescriptionThis group discusses ways to use new tools in the classroom to expedite student learning. Discussion around methods that are meeting student learning needs such as flipping the k-12 classroom to in-class practice and out-of-class introduction to new information.
This year NE Ohio administrators and educators have been gathering once a month to focus on use of technology in addressing the new Ohio standards and Common Core. The meetings are all recorded on the web at http://neoaalt.org Great ideas on how educators are using technology to effectively and efficiently improve understanding and content knowledge.
Great post on the 33 Digital Skills Every 21st Century Teacher should Have. And I might add teach to our students and use for learning in the classoom. http://www.educatorstechnology.com/2012/06/33-digital-skills-every-21st-century.html?m=1

Check out these great sessions that were at EdCamp CLE on 6/15. Best take away was that professional development can be provide by teachers themselves. Model PD on EdCamp. Let teachers decide what they want to learn and have other staff share and collaborate.

Great new tool from INFOhio to help with student research - for middle and high school students - http://go.infohio.org/
Students and teachers can use this tool at any point in the research process. I particularly like the way the INFOhio resources are easily accessible by subject area.

Thanks for inviting me to this group! I have just started exploring go.infohio. Great stuff! There are lots of useful resources here for teachers, too: KWL and KNR charts and such.
