When Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert Emie Baylon and I spoke recently at BETT Asia, she enthusiastically shared how technology has converted students who were once “bored” into engaged, life-long learners.
And while technology is one part of Baylon’s teaching toolkit, it’s not the only reason her classroom is successful.… Visit the author's original post
We actually met last April in Saco when my students, my colleague, Mr Tabary and I were visiting the school.
When I read his short stories, I immediately asked him to join my lietrature project!
THANK YOu so much Dave for accepting!
Writer, writer, who wants to be a writer?
The question was so simple, and for me, so complicated. For most of my adult life, I owned and operated a small software and data-processing firm that specialized in providing technology solutions for small banks and credit union.… Visit the author's original post
Jonathan Bergmann Pioneer of the Flipped Class Movement
“One of the best things about the Flipped Class model is that it came from teachers and not from some sort of top-down professional development strategy. Teachers need to be brought to the table in all education reform. Too much education reform has been done to teachers instead of by teachers. We need more educational reform to come from the teachers in the trenches.” To learn more about how to flip your classroom, check out Bergmann’s blog, or connect with him through his Educator Profile.… Visit the author's original post
I have been selected as one of the top 50 world educators (out of 20 000) by the Varkey Foundation.
Of course, what I really feel like is sharing it with my students whom I am so looking forward to seeing again!
Here are a few links:

Congratulations to all my students who have made it possible!
That is why it has taken so long to write this post!
To My dear 10th grade students,
Your literature projects were selected by François Jarraud (Café Padagogique) to be presented to the French Minister of Education.
Your work and some of the content you created was really appreciated!… Visit the author's original post
Their literature project has been selected as one of the most innovative projects in France! You can read it here (in French).
I will represent them on Friday 26 and Saturday 27, November 2016.
This article explains what this forum is about.
Today, we are talking about the wild and crazy ride of getting from "It was a dark and stormy night..." to "Yaaaay! You're officially published." There was an article I read by Dave Barry who talked about a flight he took to California. Everyone boarded and while they were waiting to take off, he randomly started asking people how much they paid for their ticket. The answer was not surprising: No one on that flight paid the same fare.… Visit the author's original post
Thanbk you so much to them and to Kai!
Last Thursday, the 10th grade OIB class got to know the American writer Kai Strand whom they met during a Skype interview. It was a neat opportunity because most of us had never done a Skype interview before with a writer. Kai Strand was very nice to us and answered all our questions in great detail.… Visit the author's original post
The idea of flipped learning has been around for almost 10 years, however the skills and technology challenges were always too great to make it a practical proposition for most schools. But this is no longer the case! Today, teachers all around the world are using tools like Office Mix to deliver flipped learning as part of a STEM approach.
Flipped + STEM = Too Hard
In theory, the flipped approach is a great way to facilitate STEM learning. If a student can absorb the vital facts of a topic via digital content outside the classroom, then teaching time becomes much more powerful.… Visit the author's original post

Guest post by Simon Baddeley: Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert.
For fifteen years, I have taught English in some of the most economically deprived schools and worked with some of the most disaffected learners that main stream education has to offer. Learners that face significant social, emotional, behavioural and developmental barriers to learning, with low self-esteem and even lower aspirations for their future. My absolute driving educational principle is that education is the key to unlock a world of opportunities beyond the cycle of social and economic deprivation that some of my learners are currently trapped within.… Visit the author's original post

La innovación en el ámbito educativo no se puede limitar a introducir las TIC para que el alumnado utilice alguna presentación digital creada por un profesor. Si queremos ir un paso más allá, debemos dejar de favorecer el aprendizaje pasivo. El alumno tiene que dejar de ser copiloto, para ser el conductor y coger las riendas de su aprendizaje.
Tradicionalmente, cuando un alumno no sabía algo, preguntaba a sus padres y/o maestros. Sin embargo, actualmente les resulta mucho más rápido y fácil echar mano de su teléfono móvil y buscar en internet.… Visit the author's original post
In Part 1 of Flipping the Classroom with Office Mix, we explained how Office Mix allows teachers of all abilities deliver interactive learning artefacts that students can watch away from the classroom, so that the contact time is spent supporting students in the application of knowledge or creation process. Flipping the classroom or flipped learning, using Office Mix, is a process that we can all do because it is so easy and very familiar. Office Mix is a PowerPoint add-in, and you can convert your existing PowerPoint decks by adding multimedia and interactive apps.… Visit the author's original post
