Call for Study Participants: Participant Selection Survey: http://goo.gl/uCA3zK

PHASE II- Competencies and skills needed by designers-by-assignment for designing online interventions.

The purpose of this study is to identify and validate a list of instructional design competencies and skills needed by designers-by-assignment to design and develop online learning interventions. Designers-by-assignment are professionals or educators who design courses or interventions without formal training as instructional designers. The study will explore and describe perceptions from designers-by-assignment and administrators who work with them related to usefulness and uses of competencies and skills. The outcome may be to create a tool (a checklist) that can be used by the profession.

I have always loved professional learning. I realize that the popular term is "staff development", but to me that sounds like an all-knowing instructor waving the magic wand and dictating how the s...

Tired of lugging around chart paper? Try Google Presentations instead. Thankfully my activity was more exciting than the name I gave it.
As a teacher, I am always making instructional decisions. More often than not, these decision manifest themselves as questions. What do I want the students to know, understand, or be able to do at ...

How do you feel about Howard Gardner theory of multiple intelligences? What suggestions do you have to identify each child's type of Intelligence and then use the latest technology to support that child? #multipleintelligencetheory     #technologytrends

It can be difficult being an #earlyadopter    of new #technology   in the classroom. Some issues we have run into include not having #teachers   fully educated in the new technology or not having access to just-in-time support for tech issues. I think it's healthy to share some of the bumps in the road to implementation. 
Let me know your #technology   implementation issues.

Create an online learning module using Google tools! It's totally free and pretty easy after some practice (and patience).
Everyone is talking about the "flipped classroom." I just attended a conference where this term was used approximately 57 times every hour for 4 days. My first response to this term was positive wh...

Are you a technology ninja or samurai? Maybe you're both ... a samja or a ninjurai. 
I will start by stating the obvious: There is a HUGE difference between learning to use technology for yourself and using it effectively in the student learning process. Both applications of techno...

Hello everyone
What are you doing in June?
Do any of these apply to you as an educator? 
 - I am looking for inspiring professional development to participate in that will inform my teaching and learning next year
 - I really want to know what this 'global collaboration' is all about! 
 - My school is talking about the need to build global competency and make authentic working connections with other schools, but I have little idea of where to start!
 - I want to know how to become a connected educator using Web 2.0 tools and how to connect my students as well
 - I am attending ISTE 2014 and if I come in a couple of days earlier this will link in nicely
 - I really want to attend an action-based workshop and construct new ideas with other educators and build a learning experience for my students!
 - I have been reading 'Flattening Classrooms, Engaging Minds: Move to global collaboration one step at a time' and want to learn more from the author!
 - I have tried to take my class/school/district global but need to know more about connecting and collaboration - and I need to join a vibrant community that is already doing this!

Atlanta International School, Georgia, USA will host the Flat Connections Workshop 2014: Connect, Collaborate, Go Global in Atlanta and we are looking forward to welcoming educators and education leaders to this 2-day event, June 25-26.

Read details via this smore - https://www.smore.com/dhpgn
Put this on your calendar now!

Questions? Please email workshop leader Julie Lindsay admin@flatconnections.com
