This Week in Ontario Edublogs

From a spammer this week…

I know this site gives quality based articles or reviews and other information, is there any other web site which gives these kinds
of data in quality?

Why yes.  Yes, there is.  They’re called Ontario Edubloggers.  If you had looked around, you might have found these blog posts this week.


Make it a Bestseller

Paul Cornies’ blog is always a source for morning inspiration with the quotes that he shares.

On Thursday, he posted a series of quotes and one of them should absolutely be on the walls of every classroom.


Student Scientists: Can you make a rainbow?

I want to be in this class!  Jocelyn Schmidt’s class had the tools and the inquiry desired to make a rainbow in their kindergarten class.  Read this post to see how they did it.

I feel so silly…I go the traditional route and wait for it to rain and then go outside hoping to find one.


SUMMER TIME MATH FUN

In the search for the latest and greatest digital and electronic solutions to everything, mathematics is right in the midst.  Let’s not overlook the traditional games that help learn mathematics concepts.  Mary-Ann Fuduric shares how she uses traditional games like Yahtzee and others work with her students.

After all, games are all about probability, keeping score, patterns, …  Why wouldn’t you use them?

I’ve played them all!  Missing from the list is the wonderful game Mahjongg.


Teach Like A Designer

Andrea Kerr offers a thought provoking post about UDL and how technology can meld with the traditional to create an inclusive learning environment for all students.  To support her thesis, she’s included a pair of videos that really provide some insights.  It’s not a quick read, but I think it’s one well worth the time.

The ultimate goal is important…

The teacher can therefore plan and create a positive classroom environment, free of frustrations, bias, and exclusion.


Now, if our spammer friend would only take the time to look around, he/she/it would definitely be turned on by the thoughts of Ontario Edubloggers!
