3 Hottest Posts Most Popular On The Innovative Educator

Haven’t been keeping up with The Innovative Educator? Don’t worry. That’s what this wrap up is for.  Here are the three hottest posts that you don’t want to miss!

What’s hot this week? Innovative school models. Using media to increase family engagement. Teen brains - it's not what you think.

Back at the top is an article I wrote about innovative school models that influence my thinking. I wrote this in part as a result of conversations around the need for charter schools as the answer to bring innovation to public schools.  But it is not. There have long been school models that innovative public school educators have or have wanted to adopt. What got in the way was not their unwillingness to move away from traditional models, but rather the system of standards and testing that was thrust upon schools following No Child Left Behind. This post looks at those models. 

Next up is my recap of the #SXSWEdu panel discussion I participated in that was hosted by Common Sense Education. In the post I outline 9 ways to increase parent engagement using digital media.

Rounding out the top is a post about the teen brain and some myths that should be reconsidered.
