Stocking the Essential Toolbox for Today’s Teacher


Session Description: A well-equipped toolbox is essential for completing jobs around the home—everything from hanging a picture frame to fixing a dripping faucet or even doing major home improvements. Today’s teachers need to assemble their own well-equipped toolbox for teaching. Pencils, paper, books, a slate and chalk were basically all that was needed just 25 years ago; but today teachers need to have a lot more tools. Let’s “go shopping” to stock your toolbox and don’t worry about your budget as it will all be free! First let’s pick a PLN (Professional Learning Network) to get you started. Next add a plethora of links to online tools, apps and interactive websites.

Add a library, free of course, filled with eBooks, Online Books, Audio Books, Podcasts, Educational Videos & Study Guides. Throw in that essential tool of how to effectively and efficiently search the web. Toss in a few how-to manuals for a variety of teaching task. Collect a large handful of “Next Generation Assessment” tools. Gather a collection of Educational and Technology News sites to keep you up-to-date. Finally top it off with an all-in-one multi-tool,– a list of sites that will help you and your students find the who, what, when and how on a wide variety of subjects, so that both you and your students can Learn Something New Every Day!
