Tips, Tricks and More from the Edutopia Community

Samer Rabadi

Online Community Manager

As we work toward redesigning Edutopia to be more community friendly, we also want to make sure we spotlight the awesome community contributions that already live on the site. One way to do that is through a blog series documenting the community's favorite discussions and posts. This is the first post in that series.

Let's start things off with a couple of oldies but goodies. The first is a veritable treasure trove: a slideshow featuring 54 examples of formative assessment put together by David Wees, made freely available to the Edutopia community: Different Examples of Formative Assessment. The second is another great example of shared learning from Julie Gray, wherein she describes lessons learned from her winning grant application for iPads and their subsequent integration into her classroom. Julie even shares the grant application itself: iPad & iPod Classroom Integration and Grant Writing.

In addition, I have two recent offerings that I think you'll find useful. In the first, Corinne asks for help in deciding on a 1:1 device for her middle school, and it triggers an interesting debate on how to pick the best device. Sticking with the EdTech theme, I'll also share a discussion started by Becky Fisher where community members talk about their favorite free educational resources for the classroom.

Finally, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that October was Connected Educator Month. We hosted a discussion asking the community what it means to be connected. A number of people responded with their stories, and we found them tremendously inspiring. Here are four that we turned into blog posts:
