The Hottest Posts Everyone's Reading for #BacktoSchool Preparation

This week a new #backtoschool post moves into the #2 spot. It asks teachers “What’s Your Classroom Inviting Students to Do?” It provides four options, then suggests how to achieve each. It also asks teachers to consider bringing students into the design process.  Holding strong in first place is a hot topic. How to Move From Lecture to Learning This post is essential for innovative educators looking forward to #backtoschool strategies that go beyond the lecture.

Another popular post asks, “Why Ask Why?” It shares the story of a teacher I met who was very excited to stumble upon the idea of asking students “Why?” The post explains that’s simply not enough. We need to go further and help students to become the ones to ask questions and understand what type of question they are asking. 

Rounding out the top are a couple posts on Facebook Live. I have been experimenting with several streaming platforms as they can be a key to #OpenEd and help us share learning opportunities with the world. You can check out what I discovered below. 

Stay tuned next week where I do a Faceoff of several livestreaming platforms.
