What I Learned @ teachSDA This Weekend

THINGS I LEARNED THIS WEEKEND AT #teachSDA!

Monday night's topic: "What is ?" check out the website for a recap www.teachsda.org.

Here are some interesting extra articles and programs gleaned from #teachSDA over the weekend!

1. Beyond teacher egocentrism: design thinking

2. Learning to be 'creatively rebellious'. The importance of the Three Ds :being Different, Disruptive and Deviant. ( This blog not for traditonal school principals !)

3. Empowering uses of technology
I just watched this Ted Talk from Scott McLeod which does a great job high­light­ing some of the empow­er­ing ways that stu­dents are using tech­nol­ogy.
