I agree, I want my work to be purposeful, I need students.
I emailed Mr. Blade at Ocean View Middle school to volunteer in an English classroom so I can share, implement, and incorporate what I am learning.  I'm hoping to collaborate with a teacher who's willing to have me, creating a lesson and/or video I will use for this course's Peer Review Assignment.

This is a re-post of the same question I posted 5/17/2015 in the General Discussion....
...Is the UC Irvine Extension Virtual Teacher Practicum the same thing as the Coursera UC Irvine Extension Capstone Virtual Teacher Final Project? If not, please explain the difference. Thank you.

I believe the most important thing we can do as educators is to ask questions and empower our students to do the same. That's way this commercial is so EPIC. #education   #school   #google

I usually fast forward through commercials - but I saw this last night and watched it. It reminded me of tr session about asking questions at #CUE15 by +David Theriault and +Sean Ziebarth

Today is the official launch of the new Canvas Community! You'll notice that all the Help links inside of Canvas now point to the new community forums at https://community.canvaslms.com/

This is a significant upgrade to the old Canvas Community and is powered by one of the best community platforms on the market. They are using Jive Software which is used by companies like Nike, Cisco, T-mobile and Toshiba. When you get a chance, take a look, vote on some new feature requests, ask some questions, submit some ideas and earn some points & badges.

There's a lot to take in, but if y'all like it we could move our HBUHSD Canvas community over to that platform and have our on private group within the larger Canvas Community.

Share your thoughts feedback with me as you explore.

Assign anything to anyone. BIG update in Canvas today. Now you can use the differentiated assignment feature to assign something to one student, two students or 13 students only. So in addition to being able to assign something to just a certain section you can now assign things at the student level. Read more about it https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-3803

@ Chris Long...what was your Leading Edge experience like? Does UCI's Coursera virtual teacher program offer more that what the Leading Edge 60 hour summer course has to offer? My local CUE affiliate (Gold Coast CUE of Ventura County) is offering it this summer. Sorry to put you on the spot...you can refer me to someone else if need be. Thanks for your guidance and help in the Advanced Instruction Strategies course.

Pivotal times we live in. Will we see a gradual change or will something push a rapid change?
This is an open letter to all colleges, universities and their faculty...Dear Colleges, Universities and Faculty,"The system we have in place works.  Unfortunately, that system was designed in the 1800's!"You are killing me!  I mean, not literally of course, but creatively.  You see I'm a teacher and technology coordinator at a private school.  My job is about helping high school educators use 21st century tools (and by tools I mean project based...

I agree most with the part in APs.
But there is still the general feeling that college courses are prepping students to be college profs in that area. Not so useful for those seeking a job
