Reading on the Screen: Why Supporting Digital Natives Matters!

Written by // Emily Rozmus Wednesday, 13 December 2017

Today's digital natives are primarily "tech comfy." Teens may need to show adults how to use SnapChat, but age and experience help adults know more about how to evaluate the content on this platform and other digital spaces.

In order to create cricital thinkers who are able to comprehend, analyze, and evaluate digital content, educators must be intentional in preparing  students for 21st century learning. That includes reading content on the screen from a variety of sources—blogs, social media posts, databases, articles, and forums.

Get Your “But” Out of the Way with INFOhio

Written by // Emily Rozmus Friday, 27 October 2017

Are you a "Yeah, But..." Educator? Take this short quiz to find out.

  1. Have you been in the field for five or more years?
  2. Do you attend at least three meetings a week - TBT, BLT, OTES, IEP, EOC, OIP, DLT, AYP, ELL, RTI?
  3. Have you read at least two required professional books in the past three years and found best practices you wanted to try, but never found the time?
  4. Have you been so busy you can't remember the last time you went to the bathroom?

Did you hear a speaker within the last year who shared inspiring stories of greatness in the classroom? And did you return to your classroom, determined to try their tips, but saw the pile of papers to grade, IEPs to finish, discipline referrals to sign, or list of parents to call and felt overwhelmed?

If you answered "yes" to three or more of these questions, you are at risk of becoming a “Yeah, But…” Educator, or YBE. Admitting that you might be a YBE is the first step to recovery.

Two Steps to Stepping Up Student Learning

Written by // Emily Rozmus Tuesday, 19 September 2017

Finding your "why" is essential to doing what you do better, and knowing how to do it. If we brainstorm and soul search here at INFOhio to find our "why," we could come up with many different possibilities - equitable access, college and career readiness, early learning foundations, professional development, and quality content. But the "why" we keep coming back to is student learning.

Prepare for a Stellar School Year

Written by // Erica Clay Thursday, 24 August 2017

The air is cool and crisp. The leaves are a vibrant orange or fiery red. Pumkins and mums are starting to appear on the front porches in your neighborhood. Students come to school each morning, accustomed to the habits of the school day. Things finally feel settled, almost peaceful. Students are in their classrooms, starting a new research unit...and then you hear it. It's the same thing you hear every year around the last week of September or the first week of October. It starts with one voice, but others quickly echo until it builds to a roar, filling the hallways of the school: "I don't know my username and password!"
