I'm starting to look for resources to help out whatever it is that my new job is going to be.
Some things I've found lately that I think look promising (I'm putting them here both to share and so I can find them again later!):
1. Edudemic's "The Teacher's Guides to Technology and Learning"
A collection of resources for teachers from Twitter to Flipped Classrooms to Keeping Students Safe Online to Choosing Digital Content. Plus some.
2. Tech Coach Wiki
There's not a ton there yet. I'm hoping that it's being developed. Still, some links that look promising.
3. #TechCoach Tagboard
I've never seen Tagboard before, but it looks like a cool way to collect twitter hashtags. This specifically is the #techcoach one. Maybe I'll create a #TMC13 one for the next few days... or maybe I'll avoid it. (Still sad.)
4. Edutech for Teachers
A blog dealing with using technology in the classroom.
5. Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom
Like I've said before (I think), I'd like to send out a weekly email describing a tool that can be used in classes. This may be a good collection for me to sort through. The goal is to find things applicable to all departments. (I chose Google Forms for week 1 and Remind101 for week 2. I have no idea where these teachers are but I thought these would be good ones to make sure they know about.)
6. School Signs from Technology Rocks Seriously
I found these last night; I think this is a middle school teacher but she's spent a lot of time and is very generous is freely sharing her work. I love fonts and colors, so this is right up my alley.
7. 30 Ways to Use Chromebooks in Education from Educational Technology and Mobile Learning (that's a mouthful!)
We're going to have 250 Chromebooks available to students to check out on a daily basis. It will be nice to have resources for teachers so they know what the machines can do.
I favorited this quote from Twitter the other night. It just spoke to me.
