One of my main goals as a teacher this school year has been to simplifiy everything I do in the classroom. To turn what is sometimes a turbulent sea into a calmer ocean. This isn’t one of those ‘you should too’ educational blogposts. In fact, you’ll probably disagree with a lot of my sentiments. I’ve been working on doing less of some things.
Less me talking. More students talking.
Less huge projects. More smaller ones.
Less crappy apps. More good apps.
Less web tools. More web environments.
Less presenting. More storytelling.
Less ‘move on’. More ‘try again’.
Less unpredictability. More structure.
Less blogging. More talking in class.
Less loud. More quiet.
