Padlet – Great tool for teachers and others

I have been using Padlet for years. It is a great way to engage students, share information, and collaborate with others. I also used it today to describe some key things about me that I may want to share with my students or it can even be used to share with an employer when job searching. If you wanted others to add to your padlet, you would leave it open for anyone to add pictures, text, links, etc. https://padlet.com/drmclaughlin/mystory

Quick survey – all Teachers/Faculty/Educators in all settings – please help!

I sent this survey out on Friday, and was so excited to send it out that I mistakenly sent a link that didn’t seem to work properly. Here is the correct link. Thanks Dad for letting me know! I don’t know what I would do without my Mom and Dad!!! I promise it will only take 5 minutes or less to complete and we would really appreciate your feedback on teaching in any setting in 2020! Here is a picture of Mom and Dad when things were safer at a family and community event my students and I were hosting at Neumann University.

Total Participation Techniques

Do you want to engage your learners in higher order thinking and get all learners actively participating?

Total Participation Techniques are a game changer and can be used at all levels of teaching and learning, and can easily be used virtually as well.

Himmele & Himmele (2011) created this resource that never gets old. It is truly one of the best resources I have found as an educator.

I created a Loom video sharing some of my students’ work creating TPT folders in one of our courses as well as key ideas from TPTs and how to use them in both a virtual and face to face setting: How to Use TPTs to Engage Your Learners
