Senior History Teacher
Toowoomba Grammar School
Last year Michael Cocks walked into his classroom with a new idea.
“During the first five minutes of the lesson I gave my students the necessary instructions, and then for the next hour, they all worked quietly, diligently and enthusiastically,” he shares. “Rather than just standing in front of them and talking, I spent the time observing the students and working one-on-one with those who needed help. At the end, I asked the class how they enjoyed their lesson.… Visit the author's original post

If you’ve ever wondered just how important a teacher is, just ask Michael Furdyk.
“When I was in grade three, I somehow connected with one of the grade five gifted teachers, Ms. Gee, who saw my passion for technology, took me under her wing, and included me in some of her class activities,” says Furdyk. “The confidence she had in me was a huge boost to my self-esteem, and helped me realize that I could accomplish whatever I set my eyes on.”
And his accomplishments are many.… Visit the author's original post
Mohammad Aliff Bin Othman
MRSM Tun Mohammad Fuad Stephens
When Mohammad Aliff Bin Othman began his career as a Geography teacher, he felt the stress most new teachers feel: How could he best manage his classroom, and make sure his teaching skills were the best they could be for his students? Then in August 2016, Bin Othman was selected as a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert (MIEE), and his world changed dramatically.
“This program has been a priceless gift for me,” says Bin Othman.… Visit the author's original post
Head Teacher and Computer Science Teacher
Primary School No.3
Music may seem like an unusual path to computer science, but for principal and classroom teacher Tomasz Lukawski, it proved to be just that.
“I used to be a music teacher,” Lukawski explains. “From the beginning, as soon as I bought my first PC, I composed music on the computer and accompaniment for the school vocal group. Computer science so fascinated me, that I decided to teach it.”
These days, Lukawski takes full advantage of technology to not only manage his school and communicate with parents, students and teachers, but to take the curriculum to the next level.… Visit the author's original post

Salman “Sal” Khan has unquestionably made a lasting impact in the world of education – his name has come up countless times here at Daily Edventures, as teachers and others point to his video lessons as an example of transformational change in education. Khan, a former hedge fund analyst, created Khan Academy after using video tutorials to help his niece with algebra.… Visit the author's original post

The fact that Michael Fullan was one of the first education heroes we profiled for Daily Edventures, just after we launched the blog at the start of 2012, makes good sense. Fullan is recognized as a worldwide authority on education reform, and his mandate – “helping to achieve the moral purpose of all children learning” – perfectly aligns to Microsoft’s mission.… Visit the author's original post

“I have always seen education in a different way,” says Ovi Barceló. “I have never believed that it was about sitting down (at a desk) and listening. So since the very beginning of my professional life, I tried to listen and learn in order to know how to change that perception.
“My greatest dream for education would be that students will move away from being just consumers of information, but become problem solvers, innovators, producers, global citizens,” says Joe Lemaron.To celebrate five years of Daily Edventures, we’re sharing some of our favorite posts.

At first glance it’s pretty obvious: Colegio Fontán is different. No classrooms.
No teachers. No blackboards. No exams. Technology supports everything they do.
“Everyone knows the ‘what’ to do in education. We’ve built the ‘how’ instead,” says Julio Fontán, school President.

Fontán’s parents – both educators – brought their unique brand of education to Colombia from Spain 54 years ago.… Visit the author's original post
L’attenzione odierna all’uso degli smartphone in classe, come strumenti alla pari dei quaderni e delle penne normalmente impiegate, abbatte quelle barriere che separano la scuola dal mondo esterno.
Saluto con piacere l’attenzione e la volontà del Ministro della Pubblica Istruzione di interpretare l’esigenza di nuove pratiche di apprendimento. L’innovazione non può essere coinvolgente, né diventare sistema, se portata avanti solo da alcuni intrepidi docenti.
Se ritorno indietro nel tempo ricordo con piacere il faticoso percorso intrapreso perché per me era, allora come oggi, fondamentale comunicare con gli alunni e costruire percorsi di apprendimento insieme a loro.
Accessibility Technical Evangelist, Microsoft
Redmond, Washington, USA
Megan Lawrence is part of a team on a mission to reduce the unemployment rate for people with disabilities. This is a monumental task, but one Lawrence will not shy away from. In the US alone, the unemployment rate for people with disabilities is more than double that of people without disabilities. As Microsoft’s Accessibility Technical Evangelist, Lawrence believes one of the key paths to delivering on this mission is through accessible education technology, and an inclusive educational environment.… Visit the author's original post
