The Hottest Posts Everyone's Reading

Here’s the roundup of what's been popular on The Innovative Educator blog.

Holding the lead for another week is a post from my book Teaching Generation Text. This post outlines the building blocks for BYOD success. Next up is an article that shares five free tools for those trying to learn a new language.


Some of the other posts that round out the top include one that looks at 4 edtech tools I discovered at the #TLTechLive event as well as one that looks at using social media to improve events.  I hope there's something that looks of interest to you.  If it does, check it out.

How Tech Using Teachers Can #HavetheTalk with Administrators

There are several quality free programs available for schools. Part of my work is helping teachers use platforms such as the ones below in the classroom. The challenge is that these programs are a change from conventional teaching and learning. The problem for teachers is that some administrators do not know how to evaluate a teacher whose students are learning in such an environment. Regardless, teachers must be armed with the knowledge of how to prepare for such evaluations.
