Walking a Mile in a Teacher's Shoes

in K-12, administrators, educator, educators, instructor, teachers, teaching

Have you ever had an amazing teacher? Most of us can pinpoint that one person that challenged and encouraged us—helping to shape us into the individuals we are today.

All of us here at Atomic Learning have a passion for education—in fact, several are former educators, have teachers in our family, serve on school boards, or participate in Parent/Teacher groups. And, at a recent lunch meeting, we all gained a few more favorite teachers: Lindsay Chinn, Matt Johnson, Shelby Harris, and Joel Laguna.

Those teachers serve as the inspiration behind TEACH, a documentary by Davis Guggenheim, that the Atomic Learning team gathered together to watch and discuss over lunch.

A new survey out from Scholastic and the BIll & Melinda Gates Foundation has found that many teachers feel that they don't have enough time to plan and develop lessons to sufficiently address Common Core State Standards. The survey, Primary Sources: America's Teachers on Teaching in an Era of Change, compiles responses on a variety of topics from over 20,000 teachers from across the United States.
 
The introductory letter from Vicki Phillips of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Margery Mayer of Scholastic includes a significant section on teachers' opinions regarding CCSS implementation:
Teachers Are Enthusiastic About the Implementation of the Common Core State Standards,
Even as They Acknowledge Challenges Ahead

Edutopia recently published a nice article on 5 Tips to Help Teachers Who Struggle with Technology.
 
This isn't a new topic to Atomic Learning by any means—helping teachers effectively utilize technology is in fact the foundation that our company was founded on over a decade ago—but because it is so near and dear to our hearts, we couldn't resist sharing.
