While I normality like to post my ideas and thoughts on education and technology. Occasionally, however I come across a post that is just so outstanding and on the mark that I feel it is just too good not to pass on to my readers. “Ten Videos Every Educator Should Watch (and Reflect on)” was written last February and while I have written about and discussed many of the videos contained in this post I really like the fact that they are all placed together for teachers to look at and think about. This is the time of year when many teachers have the time to look at and think about new ideas and teaching strategies. So I encourage any teachers looking to expand their teaching techniques, philosophies and teaching strategies to look through these outstanding videos and reflect on them.

Want to Revamp You Class? Assess you Strengths

Well, it is that time of year again when teachers look back at the past year and forward to the next.  Many teachers are considering making changes to their courses and styles of teaching.  If you are in that boat here is a great tool to give you a start  on making those changes.  This assessment will help you determine your strengths and weaknesses.  It will allow you the ability to look at where you can make changes and support your strengths in your teaching.  While it did not hold any real surprises for me it got me thinking about some areas in which I could use some work and support in my classes.  Take a look at the this assessment at the following website.  http://literacyworks.org/mi/assessment/findyourstrengths.html
