It’s time to rethink best practices. Knowledge is readily available and we must teach and model an inquiry approach to learning. Not just in the classroom, but in industry. We must act as curators – people who collect, organize and share content with one another to continue to further progress. We must teach students to decipher and filter what is important. We must teach adults to do the same.
Geek. Dork. Teacher. Coach. Entrepreneur. Speaker. During the day I am an elementary school teacher currently teaching grade 8. I am also the technology coach within the school. My latest web project is edmettle, a social network and feedback management tool for teachers and students. I am also busy working on nkwiry - a social bookmarking site for schools.It allows students to explore, learn, gather & share resources with everyone in the class, no student sign up required!
