Making Meaning Through Pop Culture

When PLNs collide!!!! My ideas for this week’s #IMMOOC blog prompt are very much in line with those I had for the #edublogsclub prompt, so it makes sense to cover them both in the same post. #IMMOOC Blog Prompt: Innovation is defined as a way of thinking that creates something new and better. What are some examples that you consider innovative?  How… Continue reading Making Meaning Through Pop Culture

The Game of School #immooc 2

During the first live episode of the #immooc, A.J. Juliani talked about the game of school that most kids play, and by this, he didn’t mean imaginative play where one of them is the teacher and the rest are the students. The game of school that he refers to is one that most kids will play throughout their k-12 schooling (if they decide… Continue reading The Game of School #immooc 2

The Innovator’s Mindset

The Innovator’s Mindset was such an incredible and eye-opening read! While reading, I had the chance to participate in my first MOOC (massive open online course) and was therefore not only reading, but also reflecting with many other educators all over the world!

#IMMOOC Bubble and Squeak

I still remember the first time my British born and raised husband made me the traditional English dish of bubble and squeak. Bubble and squeak is a fairly routine meal in English households.

Everyday Innovation Inside the Box #IMMOOC

So often we hear that we need to be thinking outside of the box. It was refreshing, for a change, to instead hear and read (during the #IMMOOC live session, and in Part 1 of The Innovator’s Mindset) that we can also be innovative teachers “inside the box,” and that anyone can be innovative, regardless of budgetary constraints.
