Tech Double Shot!
TWO TECH IDEAS TO START OFF YOUR WEEK
Issue # 12 - Teacher Appreciation! - May 2nd, 2016
It's a good week to be a teacher. This week, we can all enjoy some extra rewards for our hard work this year. And in that spirit, here are a few resources that also recognize and encourage the talents and effort that goes into good teaching,
Shot 1: The Teachers Guild
With some excellent partners and outside support, The Teachers Guild is working through several significant challenges faced by all teachers, from sparking student curiosity to preparing students for college. And they are challenging teachers to brainstorm and prototype solutions to these challenges. All of the ideas and projects that they initiate are then published on their website to encourage more collaboration and problem-solving.
Most importantly, The Teachers Guild also holds several free meet-up events in the area complete with food and drinks. Their second event in NYC this was this past Friday, but there should be several more forthcoming. You can look out for their future events here. Don't miss out!
Shot 2: Edutopia
You may have encountered Edutopia articles before, but there is an abundance of resources, research, and insight for educators on the site. Whether for new teachers or experienced teachers seeking to develop their craft, there is truly something there for everyone.
