top 10 effective ways to improve memory and attention

1. Get enough sleep!

Something like this for our teachers on Skype looks sleepy student. :-) Enough sleep - it is not only health, but also a prerequisite of good assimilation of new knowledge. As if this is not outraged by the so-called Owl, but at night the brain needs to rest, relax long enough though, as experts say, at least 8 hours. So forget…

School Tips for Parents

Beginning the new school year can be a period of incredible fervor… and uneasiness. Calm your youngster's reasons for alarm (and your own) with these educator endorsed tips.

Meet the new teacher.

For children, one of the greatest back-to-class reasons for alarm is "Will I like my new instructor?" Breaking the ice right off the bat is one of the most ideal approaches to quiet everybody's apprehensions. Exploit your school's open house or back-to-weeknight. A few…

Applause, awards, applause, awards, awards, applause

It's that time of year again, where people across the USA start to have thoughts like "If sweet potatoes are already sweet, why do they need three kinds of sugar on them?" and "I wouldn't normally have turkey, ham AND three desserts but it is thanksgiving. It's what the pilgrims would have wanted".

Since I originate from the UK, a country with only one food holiday, I often forget about Thanksgiving until the last minute. When I do remember it's pretty much the best day ever.…

A Great Fall at BSN Learning Institute

It is hard to believe we are already one-fourth of the way through the school year. The Learning Institute at Blended Schools Network has bustled this fall with the addition of courses like Physics, Chemistry and Probability! The Language Institute has made the transition to the Learning Institute as districts like Glendale, North Penn and Shikellamy needed alternatives to help students with courses that were not available due to certification issues or just lack of time in the school day.…

Sharing Learning Institute Student Data - Let the Parent Conferences Begin!

This school year is flying by and we're currently preparing for the middle of the Fall term.  As the leaves turn colors and the air gets crisp, this was the time that I always started getting calls from parents who wanted a “heads up” prior to report cards. But what happens when your student is taking a course with the Learning Institute? Do you have access to the information you need to have informed conversations with students and parents?

 

The answer is a resounding yes!…

Blackboard Assessment

I am always looking for a way to better utilize my time and incorporate technology for myself and my students.  This is a change of pace from the marker and pen corrections and I feel will motivate my students to pay better attention to my comments and corrections.

Professional Learning Communities

Just reviewed some presentations by Learning Institute Teachers about ideas they've gained from their own Professional Learning Communities. Thought I'd share a few here...

About giving critical feedback:

When giving feedback that is critical in nature, don't use an angry tone, prepare for the conversation, be honest, go to the student space to discuss this. Lastly, be sure to follow up soon after the conversation. 

Tip from …

Santa's coming to town, in September with Blackboard Updates

Legend has it that Santa and his elves spend their time after Christmas getting ready for next year, but there is an entry in the ancient Prussian texts that says they actually travel the globe helping software companies improve on and add to their software.

Now that information is clearly not true, but that doesn't make it any less meaningful, because Blackboard updates are here. Tracy Colbert (The real Santa Claus) actually updated our Blackboard server in June, but we…

Digital Citizenship in my classroom!

I never really though about digital citizenship, when I got really excited for all my students to have laptops in my classroom!  I only though, "great, now we don't have to reserve a computer lab for research days!".  After reviewing this topic I think my lessons are really lacking in the 9 areas.  I mean I never really thought about digital literacy (actually having to teach the kids how to use the technology), or digital etiquette (teaching the kids how to be nice to each other in…

Folder versus Learning Module

From what I'm gathering and my own experience with using class websites, it would seem like I would use the content folder for class resources like instructions or examples and I would use the modules more to guide students through a lesson.  I'm wondering if people tend to double up on things in the modules and the folders because they would want the students to be sure to have the resources needed to complete the assignments. I would think that the folders would be the preferred method of…
