Writing a Teacher Philosophy of Discipline Statement  http://bit.ly/1KTM1RA

When writing a teacher philosophy of discipline statement remember that it’s not based only on discipline, but the underlying topics that coincide with it – morals, ethics, values, and personal responsibility.

Parents or guardians should serve as primary resource for instructing their children about these concepts, however some guardians don’t set a good example or could even neglect this important parenting role. Guardians may even leave this responsibility to educators to take the lead and help develop our leaders of tomorrow.

I am a teacher in an alternative private school. I have an afternoon with a handful of 3rd grade boys who are excited to connect with other small classes to share lessons with.
I am looking for some assistance on how to start something small and simple with similar educators. I am also looking for some guidance to begin my boys on an E-Pal project so they can enhance writing and communication skills with an E-Pal ????

Ever wonder what it is like to live and conduct research aboard a boat... in the Pacific Ocean? Join us on Thursday to talk with scientists and learn about the research they are conducting in the Pacific Ocean. 
 
Join EarthEcho International and the Schmidt Ocean institute as we explore a world without oxygen in the South Pacific.

The Schmidt Ocean Institute’s R/V Falkor will travel from Honolulu to Tahiti during a 28 day journey to explore low-oxygen areas of the ocean called oxygen deficient zones (ODZs). Students will talk with scientists onboard the ship as they explore the biogeochemistry of ODZs and how human actions are contributing to their growth throughout the world. Oxygen deficient zones are just one of a growing number of stressors on our ocean’s ecosystems and are projected to grow in size and scale over the next 100 years.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by EarthEcho International. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

How to Write an Online Teacher Resume or Virtual Tutor Resume


There are many things to plan for when entering the virtual education career - you will need to write your resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile that is focused on an online teaching job.

Targeting your resume and other job search documents means your e-learning teacher resume needs to include RELEVANT, TRANSFERABLE skills or core competencies, which would create keywords to ensure if you resume is put through the ATS Applicant Tracking System it would be selected. This is, if your resume writing skills are strong enough to know what correct keywords to include. In addition, you will need to include experiences and accomplishments that relate to teaching in the e-learning field.

First of all let's discuss what online teaching is and the required skills.

Exactly like a traditional teacher, an online teacher must be equipped with certain characteristics that set him/her apart from his/her competitors. To be truly great in her/his profession or professional life, he/she needs to be equipped with a certain set of skills along with additional knowledge of his/her field. A great online teacher is:

Skillful and proficient in his/her subject and pedagogic capabilities like a traditional teacher.

Highly skillful in IT skills including but not limited to the use of online messengers, online teaching tools, internet handling, search engine use, and learning management systems. In short, he/she must be skilled in the usage of both synchronous and asynchronous communication tools.

Highly communicative and vigilant in his/her online discipline while remaining at the other end of the terminal.

Keeps him/herself abreast of new technical skills and innovations often introduced to facilitate online teaching and mentoring.
