Just some tools for old brains to use when teaching young ones.
I am a 21st century teacher—With a 20th century mind.
I was born back when CD’s were called LP’s they where big and black. and spun around at 33.3 rpm’s. My brain frames things in “old fashioned ways; baseballs are hit with wooden bats, books are made of paper, drinking water comes from a tap, and you don’t have to have a computer to learn.
I realize I am old school, but my students are not.
So I have pulled together a list of tools, ideas, philosophies, and discoveries that keep my 20th century mind spinning in along with the kids that surround me. I hope they can help you too.
