10 things to try out this New Year

Happy New Year! ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy New Year!

Every new year presents an opportunity to learn from the previous year and to try out new things to become a better teacher and leader in education. I recommend that you try out the following actions if you haven’t tried them.

1. Improve in classroom Management. Learn to roam around your class and how about using the ClassDojo App for some edtech fun in the classroom?

2. Utilize brain based principles in your class. It will help your students learn better and you get to enjoy your classes more.

3. Your classroom is not a class just for extroverts. Learn how to deal with introverted students.

4. Teach like a champion. One of the best books on how to become a better teacher.

5. Do personal development. With the evolution of MOOC, it’s crazy not to learn online with the different courses related to teaching. Try out Coursera for starters.

6. Increase your professional network. Learn how to use twitter to connect to other educators. While you’re at that, follow us on Twitter ๐Ÿ™‚

7. Read education books. As a teacher, learning is eternal.

8. Learn how to develop critical thinking in kids. Exams are not exactly the best way to do that.

9. Hustle. Teach to your best capability. Continue to grow and develop as an educator.

10. Learn to motivate your students. Motivated students learn better.

  1. I find your blog interesting and informative. This would help me as a future educator to be more innovative and in to the new trends in education. I am interesting if you can have an article about inclusion settings here in the Philippines. Would that be possible? ๐Ÿ™‚
