Shake Up Learning

Shake Up Learning is a one stop shop for educators to think, read, learn, consider, and be inspired. I came to this page because I was searching for good You Tube channels for teachers. Shake Up Learning has a blog with amazingly applicable instructional ideas, the Google Teacher Tribe Podcast, courses for certifications, books, and countless other resources. Check it out and follow creator Kasey Bell @ShakeUpLearning on Twitter for timely updates.

Ed Tech Tool of the Week

Insert Learning Chrome Extension

Cult of Pedagogy recommended this tool as one of the top 6 Ed Tech tools to try in 2018 and it is so cool! Add Insert Learning as a Google Chrome extension and it lets you turn websites into interactive lessons. The toolbar is pre-loaded on this page so you can try it out without installing anything or signing up. I am thinking about how easily this can be used for my English 112 course, both online and in person. Check out a sample of it using a Wonderopolis Wonder of the Day below. In it, I have inserted a sticky note with instructions for students.

What Students Are Reading

Kristie Hofelich Ennis, NBCT

In an effort to systematically study relevant research and stay connected to the teachers I greatly respect and with whom I have worked for years to successfully implement independent reading, this newsletter came about. It will offer research and practical ideas for quick implementation and may prompt further discussion or study with your colleagues. I hope you'll find it useful and thought-provoking; I also hope you will stay in touch if you implement any of the ideas with your students. They are, after all, why I do what I do!
