  • To grow, teachers must be able to reflect critically on their own performance.
  • To be whole, however, this critical reflection–this self-criticism–needs to be qualitative as well as quantitative. Which means right now we’ve only got half the picture.

  • In the 21st century, we all have personal “brands”–digital footprints that precede and proceed us, leaving a record of our interactions and ideas for anyone to see

    I’ve been an advocate of the great free tool provided by TedEd (found online at the perhaps confusing URL, ed.ted.com) for years now. It was a no-brainer to create a 3 Minute Teaching With Technology Tutorial for this fun, slick application. And here it is!
