STEM

PREPARING THE STUDENTS FOR THE “T” JOBS Today I had the pleasure of attending a wonderful training session at NJIT on Forensics and Digital Forensics. I had the opportunity to network with different schools who have STEM programs with multiple pathways in their schools. Upon reflecting there are two questions that emerged out of the discussions. How can we develop teacher capacity to teach STEM courses? There is lack of personnel and professional development in the schools that can teach STEM courses. There is a need to design STEM teacher education program at the college level. How can we help our students ready for the technology jobs while ...

Attended today's workshop designed to provide a refresher to L2L mentors on the L2L website and brush us up on new advances in technology. How great! We were many - about 40 or so - and we were busy ! For me, my greatest take away was learning how to add Giphys to "jazz up" our Slides or Ppts ( https://giphy.com ). The greatest feeling: collaborating in a real learning community with the wonderful people who mentor for L2L. Thank you to our presenters Jim and Rob!!!!  Our departing question: can we do it again?

Reflecting on an article I keep seeing on social media about the teacher getting fired for supposedly not abiding by the school’s grading policy. As a student, did I ever get a zero? Sure. Was it right? I guess. As a teacher, did some of my students receive zeros? Probably. Was it right? Probably not. As an instructional leader do I support the idea of students receiving zeros? In most cases, the answer is no. The bottom line is that we must exhaust all options to promote the success of each and every student regardless of how much they are driving us crazy or might seem too lazy to complete any work. I can remember as a teacher and team leader working with ...
