People You Must Follow
The following people are authors, podcasters, tweeters or just generally interesting to all of us trying to rethink how we do education. Find them on whatever medium you prefer and let all of their wisdom wash over you. There are so many good people doing good things and paving the path towards great teaching. It is up to you to fill your brain with the good that is out there or be poisoned by the negativity around you. Here are a few of my favorites sharing the good. Follow them and begin blazing your own trail to help others get unstuck.
Alice Keeler @AliceKeeler – Alice Keeler is one of the true allstars of the interweb’s edtech scene. She is the queen of Google Sheets, Google Classroom and most things GAfE and she is constantly posting simple and helpful tips for using your tech. As a professor, as the founder and host of #CoffeeEDU and as a general advocate for good teaching through a student-centered approach, there is so much that can be learned. Her book 50 Things You Can Do with Google Classroom is one of my new favorites and her blog might as well be the basis for the encyclopedia on the GAfE world. Check it all out, introduce yourself and get to learning from one of the best.
Richard Byrne@ -Richard Byrne hosts several very useful websites but my favorite is http://www.freetech4teachers.com/ because it brings all that he does under one roof. He does a lot. His blog is full of ideas and great articles and he sends regular reviews of great iPad apps so you don’t have to dig through the offerings yourself. If that wasn’t enough he created almost 80 tutorials on how to incorporate tech into the classroom or even some on just how it works. He is a tremendous resource and someone else you should be paying close attention to.
