Make education SIMPLER – not easier

We want to challenge our students but not overload our students.  Try these ideas to make teachers and students lives simpler:
1. Collaboration within subjects by setting up shared resources – use Dropbox or Google Drive
2. Set up a school wide calendar so teachers can share when major projects, tests etc are happening so we don’t overload our students
3. Take the time (and trust me it takes time – 7hrs for my 7 blocks) to have one-on-one or group conversations about specific topics or anything on the student’s minds.  You will be awakened by what they say and what they want
4. Innovate – how can you make this lesson more student centred and one where you, as the teacher, can participate and facilitate instead of being bearer of information
