Our teacher-panelists discuss successful uses of classroom technology, ideas for sharing technological expertise, and what strategies work best to improve teachers' technical skills and comfort level with digital tools.
On Friday, Jan. 25, from 2-5 p.m. ET, we will be livestreaming from the Teaching Tolerance Culturally Responsive Teaching Awards celebration in Washington. The event, organized by Education Week Teacher, will feature the awards presentation as well as panel discussions exploring best practices for working with minority students (including within the context of the Common Core State Standards). It will conclude with a keynote address by author Lisa Delpit titled "Unsilencing the Dialogue: Embracing the Needs of Diverse Students."
During this online chat, veteran special educator and author Thomas Armstrong will explain a paradigm shift in which general and special educators focus on students' aptitudes, not their needs and difficulties, in order to effectively differentiate instruction. He'll answer your questions about universal design for learning, the components of positive learning environments, and the strengths typically associated with particular disability categories.
An 1899 book by William James combines still-useful pragmatic and philosophical insights for teachers, Peter Gibbon says.
