These are challenging times for all of us. Both teachers and parents are (or soon will be) stumped as to how to make the best educational use of this unbelievable situation. Given that, we have taken some time to scour the Internet for a variety of resources that you can recommend to your protégées to use themselves or for them to let parents and caretakers know about them. (From what we hear parents would be most appreciative!) You will find links and my brief comments about five resources (out of over 50 explored) we selected as having great potential.
The March issue titled “Quips and Quotes” is now available. Take a few minutes and enjoy some artifacts from Bruce’s archive; after that, check out the extensive library of Just for the ASKing! issues.
The March 27th issue of EmpowerED 3.2.1 titled “Empathy in the Time of Coronavirus” is now available. Each issuefeatures 3 Big Ideas, 2 Quotes, and 1 Question with lots of links to resources from different perspectives such as business and industry, medicine, athletics, economics, recreation, and parenting as well as music and the arts. The goal of Marcia’s brief commentaries is to advance our thinking about how that wide array of information connects and supports our work as educational leaders.
Just ASK uses a common language and concept system to provide a systemic approach to teaching, learning, and leading in the 21st century. Thousands of educators across the country are using our publications and products, attending our institutes, and participating in our onsite workshops. Their application of their learning has led to more students learning more, more of the time!
