The Schultz Center for Teaching & Leadership created the first themed One Spark venue, #EdSpark, in 2014 as a way to give educational entrepreneurs the opportunity to showcase their ideas to thousands of people and make the future of education better for every age.
What is the curriculum?
The #EdSpark curriculum is composed of two different lessons—an elementary student version and a secondary student version for students in 6th -12th grade. Each version then contains three different sections—pre-tour, during, and post-tour.
The elementary student version is an Arts and Science integration focused lesson, while the secondary student version focuses on the integration of Arts and Social Studies.
Today I have a wonderful tool to share with you, called Kidblog. Kidblog is a website that offers “safe and simple blogs for your students.” As a former teacher and lifelong learner, I can appreciate that unlike Blogger or WordPress, which are great sites for adults to use for blogging, Kidblog does not require student email addresses and displays no ads.
The Schultz Center for Teaching & Leadership is not just a place to host an amazing meeting, event or training, it’s also a place to enroll in professional learning programs.
The Schultz Center offers many different programs and classes from ESOL and gifted programs to reading competency courses and mathematics courses. The courses are offered to Florida statewide districts, private school teachers, retired teachers and charter schools and can be completed anywhere between six hours and one year depending on the complexity of the course.
