Posted on Sep 20, 2014 by Tim Kitchen Last Activity on Sep 30, 2014

This post features the resources and slides used at Tim Kitchen's presentation at the 2014 ACEL National Conference http://www.acel.org.au/page/179/2014-National-Conference- From an industrial society to a knowledge based society and now to a creative society. This presentation challenges teachers and school administrators to keep up with societies changes or risk being irrelevant in the 21st Century. Numeracy and literacy skills are important but not at the expense of creativity, collaboration and communication skills. The role of the 21st century teacher is not to self-deliver content but to facilitate the understanding of key concepts and skills, cater for a range of learning styles and encourage the use of a range of tools that interconnect to help students construct learning and be creative. Sir Ken Robinson says, “Creativity for me is not an option, it is an absolute necessity.”  This presentation looks at some of the research surrounding the importance of creativit... Read More

Adobe Acrobat for Portfolios

Posted on Sep 19, 2014 by Clint Balsar Last Activity on Sep 26, 2014

This professional development session plan is aimed at helping my participants create a PDF portfolio by using Adobe Acrobat Pro. I have used Adobe's FormsCentral to create both a Pre-event questionnaire form and an Event feed-back form. A handout has been included to allow participants to have key points, as well as a space for a few notes. By the conclusion of this workshop, all participants will be able to begin the process of creating a PDF portfolio from varied resources and understand the benefits of building them for both their course instruction and their own personal/professional artifacting. This will be an introduction that is intended to encourage further usage and exploration for the motivated, intrinsic adult learner. All participants will be encouraged to develop a unique backdrop and custom header to begin exploring the benefit of creativity to their portfolio.

What is Math? (seriously)

Posted on Sep 17, 2014 by Calculus Academy Last Activity on Sep 17, 2014

Every person has taken math in school some time in their life. BUT, why don’t we have a clear definition of Mathematics? What on earth are we studying? What kind of education puts you through 12 years of math and doesn't even explain to you what it is? Its funny/sad how we can't even define it in even a slightly coherent way. Which tells us a lot about how intelligent we and our teachers are. Doing a google search on "what math is" doesn't really help either. So I attempted to answer the question "what is math", and also since it is very close to science, I tried to explain "what is science", and compared them.

Weekly Lesson Plans Semester 1, 2014

Posted on Sep 3, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 30, 2014

I always like to look at how other teachers sequence their teaching, so here are my first semester scope and sequence plans for my Art classes and my Computer classes. The second semester is when I really get going heavy with Adobe software. I teach in Tainan, Taiwan and I am surprised that the students are not more tech-savvy. Anyway, I welcome your input and suggestions. The Art plans have a lot more links. I use the free online program: www.commoncurriculum.com to do all my planning.
