Thanks so much for attending my session at FETC on using the SCAN process at www.yourtake.org AND for sharing this NING with me - it looks like a great place to share ideas and opportunities for teachers. I have been teaching middle school for 33 years and love to "get kids thinking!" I have worked with the nonprofit Tregoe Ed foundation to help get real thinking process into the classroom. There is no better place to get kids to look at different perspectives and enter into civil discourse than in the social studies classroom. I am hoping that I can present next year at NCSS, but would be glad to share how the SCAN tool on www.yourtak.org works to anyone who will listen.
Thanks for your message. I am Executive Director of Creative Change Educational Solutions, a nonprofit focused on sustainability education (www.creativechange.net). We develop interdisciplinary curricula and teacher education programs on topics such as ecological economics, multicultural issues, green design, and more.
I am a history coach and professional development specialist for the Boston Public Schools. I am also on the NCSS FASSE Board of Directors. I saw that you are presenting at NERC this March, so I will see you in Sturbridge. I have been very interested in upgrading my tech expertise.
It was great to work with you (I am not often so glad and satisfied as that time in ASW - I am rather demanding person). I enjoy that website - many interesting topics for wide meaning social studies interested people. Very promising.
Thanks for the welcome! I'm the Humanities Coordinator for K-12 for a small school district in North Texas. I attended NCSS when it came to Houston last year, and we just enjoyed a great state conference in Dallas in October.
Thomas, I work for the Council for Economic Education (Curriculum and Instructional Developer) I am a social studies teacher that recognizes that econ can and needs to be integrated in the social studies.
Hi Thomas, I am a former educator and am now the Director of K-12 SS Portfolio Management (Product Development and Product Marketing) for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. I learned about the site from a couple of board members. I think it is a great idea and a super way to let SS teachers talk about what is important to them. If you ever need anything that I can provide, please do not hestitate to ask.
Thanks for the welcome! I learned about this site from your presentation at NCSS, and I think it is a great idea... Am very excited to start sharing with and learning from fellow social studies educators.
EXCELLENT conference--as usual! Greg Mortensen was POWERFUL and INSPIRING!
Great sessions! Great networking! Great location! Great weather!
The Thursday Leadership conference was insightful.
The House of Delegates was intriguing as always.
Enjoyed the NBPTS 2-hour session Sunday morning, too.
Thanks for the idea of using the Ning!!! I actually have now set up ones for my classes and can't wait to roll them out tomorrow with my kids! One question: You had mentioned that Google Ads would remove the ads from the side if it was for a school. How do you set that up?
Thanks for the welcome Thomas. I've had the privilege of meeting your colleague, Justin Reich, during one of my courses this semester. I appreciate the great, practical advice found in your "Best Ideas for Teaching with Technology" book.
