School leadership in 2015 requires a commitment to promoting the success of students in the digital world coupled with a heightened focus on pedagogy.
More and more schools are going to BYOD or 1:1 to provide students with a more innovative learning environment.
It’s Teacher Appreciation Week, and to celebrate the teachers that make up our community, we spoke to three top awesome educators about what got them into teaching, and what they would like to share with other educators.
This past Saturday, educators from all over New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania gathered together for a busy day of learning and collaboration at Ednado. If you’re like me and eager to catch up on some informative Ednado sessions, here are seven that were generously uploaded to Google Slides and shared on Twitter.
In socioeconomically challenged school districts, this correlation is magnified tenfold! Thankfully, there are new tools that all educators can leverage to easily maximize parent-teacher-student communication.

I think it’s important to familiarize students with tools they can use to simplify the research and citation process while teaching them to write with quality and integrity.
