Education Hunt

August 2 · Issue #36 · View online
Hi, I'm Sam. I love technology, especially the kind I can use in class. In fact, I love technology even if it isn't for class. I keep a list of resources. They're hand-picked by me, Sam.

“While we teach, we learn.” -Seneca

Are you willing to take the high road? I’d like to think we’re better than the invitations we receive, asking for our R.S.V.P. to go there. Education is one of few professions where our integrity may be challenged in one exchange, with the expectation we immediately greet others with a smile in the next. Non-Complimentary behavior is what we do. Meeting negativity with optimism. Sounds easy, but you understand the skill required. Invisibilia recently covered Non-Complimentary behavior, it’s worth a listen
Getting back into the educational swing of things can be a chore. It doesn’t have to be. This week discover three resources making your trip back the best yet. Invest 45 seconds, read on and prepare for the start of something great. 
Do us a solid and spread the good word. Initiate some non-complimentary behavior the next time your department’s resident grump begins complaining about the lack of resources. Share Education Hunt, he’ll still complain, maybe next time it will be about something else. 

My friends call me bumblebee. Definitely not a nod Transformers. Bees worry me. I live in the zip code of unsettled which includes the property of occasionally terrified. Two friends and I hiked on the Appalachian Trail. 3 days, 30 miles later, I became Bumble Bee.
Google Spaces was essential gear planning the hike. 3 friends, 4 kids, 2 fathers, 1 trip with 0 free time. Detailed planning became possible using Google Spaces.
Google nails the small space real estate. I’ve long trumpeted the benefits of Google+. Communities and TopTopics are two features overlooked and undervalued. Establishing a familiar yet original experience, Google Spaces is a venue for interesting topics.
Hybrid infusion
Search for content, add links or pictures without hassle. There are no superficial barriers when you are ready to chime in on conversations. The layout uncluttered, rich with essentials necessary to plan with a team. Google Spaces lasts as long as necessary, fading out as conversations come to a natural close. A new way to discuss content, infusing relevance through the experience.
“Okay so we have to change our plans because of bears.”
Best line of the trip posted on Google Space by Andy. While planning, we discovered bear activity was standard for sections of the Smokey Mountains. Maps, blogs, and even hand made Etsy loin clothes found shelter in our Google Space. Everything you ever wanted and a little of nothing you need. The platform promotes natural discussion. Covering essentials, as well as the occasional side bar.
“I think I might not bring my tent”
Planning a trek isn’t atop of most folks to do list. Planning with your fellow American History teteachers should be. The start of a new year brings the blessings of fresh discussion with peers. The parking lot can become the default venue for conversations you share with coworkers. Dont let it. Google Spaces navigates team planning, in expert fashion.
Plan you next Trek or PLC with Google Spaces and let us know what you think.
