  6. Google Jamboard works fine, which has been my major online whiteboard app for years. students can pull up your whiteboard and interact with it if you let them. Simplifies things bc you don't have to share screens with them, and if you have students in class and virtual at the same time, you just draw on your screen at school and it shows up everywhere without screen sharing. I got a xp-pen drawing tablet . I think and I love it. Way better than a mouse, since I can write on the Google Jamboard app. You can draw or write with a mouse, but a tablet is much easier and more natural fe
  7. Here is a great resource for A Deep Unit of Character study based on the Units of Study. It lays out everything really well. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1LFlRBOhuYNW9NH9Ah5Zgv_RswZKkgnntQY8G560xv4o/edit?usp=sharing
  8. The American Library Association announced winners of the nation’s outstanding children’s books this week. At the top of the list is “We Are Water Protectors,” a picture book created by two Indigenous women. It was illustrated by Tlingit artist Michaela Goade and written by Carole Lindstrom, Turtle Mountain Band of Ojibwe. The selection is history-making, marking the first time an Indigenous person has ever won the Caldecott Medal. The medal is the award for the most distinguished American children’s picture book. https://indiancountrytoday.com/news/the-first-indigen

  11. I find the virtual fairs to be a waste of time. Live and in person is best but that is not going to happen this year. We have to do the best we can in these very unique times. What I hope doesn't happen is that all of these fairs continue to be a waste of time for everyone. If schools are not looking, stop posting. Schrole posted tons of jobs in the past few days but no replies. Is it not respectful to at least offer a letter of acknowledgement?
  12. My wife and I both interviewed with no success. We had great interviews but the schools just seem to be seeing what is out there. For us it is a total waste of time and I hope the other virtual fairs are not the same. The schools were all willing to interview but not really committing to anything. It was disappointing and I reached out to our Search Associate and he said he knew we were not the only ones in the same boat.
  13. I am interested if anyone went to this. How was it for them? Was it productive? Offers given or taken?
  14. Hey, people. My name is Ben, and I have been abroad twelve years as a teacher. I have had an amazing experience, albeit riddled with moments of profound desperation, humour, and more memorably, cultural differences. I know you have all had the same experience, and I am sure you would love the world to know! I want to collect stories from international teachers all over the world. The stories are going to be for a book: think Chicken Soup for the Teacher's Soul, but these stories are not going to be sugar coated, uplifting, epithets of positivity; I want these stories to show

  19. Is anyone else loving Google Jamboard? Google Jamboard is a tool that can be used to support learning in fully online and/or a personalized pedagogical approach. One could model this for teachers by having them use Jamboard at your first staff meeting of the new year. Just asking them something simple like, "add your name to the first slide to show you are present at the meeting." At the end of the meeting, you could ask them to list one thing they learned at the meeting on another slide. For students, I would use this with my ELA class and instead of having a drawing board, I

  21. If she is not certified, she will have problems getting jobs in international schools k-12. It is possible in a college or an ESL job. Some international schools will hire a traveling spouse to do work depending on their qualifications. I'd suggest you reach out to a few of the agencies like Search Associates and put a profile up there.
