I’ve finally created a blog regarding a large portion of my job- to help teachers and students integrate technology with a purpose. Most of my work is compiled on our STREAM website, but I thought it may be smart to have a blog with small tidbits of info. I shall start with this lovely infographic about the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teachers Who Use Technology created originally by alwaysprepped.com, and the infographic made by Mark Bates.
Each of these 7 habits are key to being a highly effective teacher, but in my opinion, the first one is THE MOST IMPORTANT. As a teacher, everything you do should have a purpose. Cause you know the second you do something that does not really have a purpose, the one/two/five snarky kids in the corner will ask WHY and you will have no response…and mutiny will occur. What’s worse than a mutiny? Unengaged kids.
