Teacher Professional Development
This is the first vlog post, which discusses the rationale behind i.nspiration e.ducation. We are a veteran teacher and (mostly) new teacher team, employed at Desert Christian High School in Tucson, AZ. Together we seek to post weekly updates on inspirational education.
Expect weekly, informal, and less-than-perfect but research-based posts of the implementation of best practices in education. Our hope is to inspire our fellow teachers to inspire life-long learners.
In addition to why we created i.spiration e.ducation, this first video also discusses such educational buzz words as facilitated learning, collaborative learning, student-based learning, inquiry-based learning, expeditionary educational trips, interdisciplinary studies, life-long learning, closure, and student-teacher relationships.
