I am an enthusiastic visionary leader with my sights set on redefining the current beliefs about the best ways to prepare our students for life in an increasingly global and digital society. Our goal as teachers should not focus on students answering every question, but questioning every answer.
As educators, we’re in the midst of preparing students for a fundamental shift in the nature of work that includes increased reliance on technology, automation, digital platforms and artificial intelligence. However, the look and feel in many of our schools has not changed in more than 100 years. Consider these seven tips for redesigning your learning spaces:1. Involve Students in the Design ProcessFirst, you should have a conversation with students about where they like to learn and why.
Over the past six weeks I've facilitated a series of three digital leadership summits in California and worked with more than 150 administrators representing more than 750,000 students. Below are the habits that successful schools most often had in common. Would you say the district you work in is engaging in all five of these?
By 2020, 48 percent of corporations think contractors will be more in demand than full-time employees. Surprising? Not actually. Have you ever used Angie's List? It's an online network of contractors that allows you to post a job you need to have done around the house or yard, and within minutes, you're contacted by qualified and prescreened contractors willing to give you a quote on everything from cutting the grass to finishing the basement.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
