Recorded June 14, 2011

The first years of practice for teachers can be filled with great hope and exhilaration, as well as fatigue and anxiety. Without adequate support, new teachers often struggle through their early days, months, and years in the classroom. Beginning teachers need access to support so that they can be empowered to use strategies to help them not just survive, but also thrive in the classroom.

By providing some simple tools to new teachers, we can guide them to be more successful as they begin work to create quality 21st century learner–centered classrooms. This webinar will present a new teacher tool kit that new teachers can easily use as they begin their first years of instructional focus in the classroom. 

Drawing on simple, research-based ideas that are widely known, we will examine five basic tools that will lay the foundation for further growth and learning. We will pay particular attention to the emerging role that social media groups and global connections can play in supporting new teachers.

    Thanks for sharing the Teaching with Soul site ... so many useful tools to reach students' passion and what matters to each of them, allowing them to be and to thrive as full people.

    This webinar was quite inspiring. I feel overwhelmed by all that is out there. I plan to starting tweeting and reading blogs as suggested, just to get started. I recognize I have to challenge myself to use 21st century skills in my own time to be able to authentically integrate technology. What a journey I have ahead of me!
