The Bullying Prevention Summit is on and other things
I discuss The anti bullying summit and the Connected Educator Month “Tips from 35 Educators we Admire. Both of these are good reads.
Leaders of non-profit and corporate organizations engaged in anti-bullying work will join researchers, parents and students to participate in the third Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention Summit on August 6th and 7th in Washington, D.C. The Summit is hosted by the Department of Education, and the groups and individuals together will discuss the successes and challenges of addressing bullying, and what needs to be done in the year to come. As the US Department of Educations’ Blog mentioned; “They have turned a corner and no long think of bullying as “kids being kids’.” For those wanting to get involved in a worthy cause here is your chance if you live around the Washington, D.C. area. I personally would like to see these Summits all over the US, and in schools.
Next up is for ‘Connected Educator Month,’ Tips From
33 35 Educators We Admire. They celebrated, and asked every educator who has written a guest post for them, been featured in a Reader Idea, or collaborated on one of their features to answer two simple questions:
- What is one important thing you’ve learned from someone in your Personal Learning Network (P.L.N.), however you define that network?
- What one person, group or organization would you recommend every educator add to his or her P.L.N.
Together they’ve recommended more than 100 people, organizations, sites and other resources you can learn from right now, as well as shared insights on how to learn from them.?
This is a great article for teachers, has a wealth of information. Includes many links to very worthy works online to help teachers. A must read! I personally like Vlad Gutkovich answer to the first question. He wrote: “1. All the technology, software, tools and other “innovations” out there don’t go very far unless they’re implemented with dedication by hard-working, passionate teachers in supportive environments.” So very true!
