From Consumption to Creation: Inspire Creativity in Your Classroom!

In many of today’s classrooms, we see students that have been learning in a consumption system their entire school career. They understand that when entering a new class they are to sit in their seats, listen to the teacher, read the assigned text, answer the questions at the end of the section, and regurgitate all the information on an exam at the end of the unit. While this consumption system has been the norm for decades, it does not challenge the students to become new and innovative thinkers.

Do You Understand the Legal Implications of Using Technology in Schools?

On October 30, 2019, more than 100 administrators, school personnel and educators came together at the DuPage Regional Office of Education to discuss the Legal Implications of Using Technology in Schools. This administrator’s academy was led by Joshua Herman and Katherine Swise of Miler, Hall & Triggs, LLC located in Peoria, Illinois.

The How and Why of Becoming Google Certified

Google Education offers teachers the ability to pass two different certification exams that recognize users skills using G Suite Applications and the ability to implement them into the classroom. Google provides free online training to help educators learn G Suite Apps designated as Fundamental and Advanced. The Fundamental content is geared towards the Level 1 exam and the Advanced training focuses on the Level 2 exam. To complete both levels, expect to set aside 12 hours to complete 1 and 10 hours to complete 2 training.

Next Round of Google Online Courses Begin in November

Reflective Journal for Coaches

As an Instructional Coach in a role without many others, all of my professional personal growth came from opportunities I sought outside of my district, and on my own: volunteering, serving on boards, Twitter chats, conferences, etc.

Media Literacy Week

Media Literacy is concerned with understanding and evaluating the media we interact with as well as learning how to appropriately create and disseminate media ourselves. In our current “digital age,” where information and media are at everyone’s fingertips, Media Literacy is becoming more important.
