Some Interesting Posts I Read Last Week - Burlington Blog Update (Edition 9)

The post below is actually a copy of a weekly e-mail that I send to our staff  to promote our Burlington Public Schools Blog which shares the great work going on across our school district. I also try to give a quick technology tip/resource that I think would be useful. It is the ninth post in the series.

Before I get to the latest posts from the Burlington Public Schools Blog, I wanted to share a few interesting posts/articles that I stumbled across last week.  
  1. Google Search Tips Poster - Click on the link to the left to check out this great poster with some Google search modifiers that will help students get better results. I found this resource on a blog post by Vicki Davis on her Cool Cat Teacher site.
  2. What makes a good common core math question from the Hechinger Report - This is an interesting read on the nature of math problems in the common core era. Feel free to agree or disagree because it seems there is no longer one right answer when it comes to math problems ;)
  3. Some Socrative resources from Richard Byrne - Access More Than 1,000 Socrative Quizzes Sorted by Subject and a helpful video on the same topic -  How to Import Quizzes Into Your Socrative Account

    Burlington Blogs Update (Week 9)

It's hard to believe that we have reached the quarter pole in this year's school year! Time flies...and the great posts keep rolling in from all of the district blogs and websites! Highlights from this week include our first featured post from the Middle School Help Desk, and amazing video created by BHS Freshman Justin Varghese, and a great review of the music of BHS grad Eric Leva by BHS junior Timmy Sullivan.

Please keep those posts coming and if you aren't a blogger, please feel free to forward any happenings from you or your classroom or any student work that you would like to show off and I will turn it into an original post for the BPS Blog.  

Only 135 more posts to go...
