  • Blue-green algae, which occurs naturally, can begin at times to produce toxins in a process researchers still don’t understand.

    Toxins can be present only after an initial bloom, Dawson said; however, a bloom can die off and leave a poisoned lake.

    “The bloom can start to look better, and the toxins can continue to get worse for a while,” Dawson said.

    However, “the visual is the first clue.”

  • One strategy that most researchers and experts seem to agree on: so-called "job-embedded" professional development that takes place consistently during the workday and is tied to specific classroom challenges that teachers actually face, rather than in the isolated sessions often preferred by district central offices and written into districts' contracts with their teachers.
  • When learning experiences are focused solely on the technology itself, with no specific connection to grade or content learning goals, teachers are unlikely to incorporate technology into their practices
  • Another oft-cited strategy is putting to work those "early adopters" inside a school who are making innovative, student-centered use of technology in their classrooms. "The smarter districts use those teachers to teach other teachers how to integrate tech into their lessons," Mr. Cuban said. "The dumb ones use vendors to provide professional development and force teachers to attend those sessions."
  • That would be nice but would require a teacher to either become the building tech specialist part time or full time. I wouldn't mind doing that part time. Giving up my 5th period exploratory class to spend time with teachers in their classes. Problem is that only 6th grade teachers are teaching 5th period and it's exploratory. Would not work in that case. - Alfonso Gonzalez on 2015-06-17
