August rundown of the most read posts

The summer comes to an end and the new academic year began, teachers are a sort of excited and a bit nervous. Students are feeling more or less like you. They are excited, nervous, curious about  you and the new curriculum.

As excited as we are to get back to school, all of us still get those first-day jitters. Between worrying about what to wear to impress our students or how to start the first class if you a are a teacher or the crush for the last school if you think your students feel, the first day is a bit of an emotional roller coaster. 

To start this new academic year, let your students feel free to express their emotions, be open to their imagination.

Find out who these kids really are. After that you will be prepared to start your lessons and find out what your students love deeply and then build the curriculum around that.

August was my summer break. However I wrote a few posts in English and French, sharing some interesting resources to ease and enrich the lives of educators and their students that will facilitate effective teaching and learning.

No doubt ! Games in school are always welcome. Even if they are not GBL, games and animated short movies can always be integrated in school curriculum if we know how to explore these digital resources in the classroom. 

Here are the most popular posts of the last month:

Coding at school : Piecefall, a game by students 

English & French : The hotest animated videos & video games to explore at school 

Le Mont Blanc et 1ere ascension : lectures BD 

Education & sciences : Catching the Falling Stars: the Perseids

Civics education : World Humanitarian Day 2015

Sciences education : here comes the 1st Supermoon 

Hope you will have a awesome new school year, creative students, good resources to enrich your lessons. And of course new ideas to continue intregating video games, animated short movies, social networks and other digital resources that will enhance the curriculum you are teaching.

Wherever you are for the new academic year, don't lose your joy and spontaneity of teaching. Teaching is a challenging work with many unique frustrations, but the rewards of teaching are numerable. Keep that in mind.

I'm back to posting the normal roundup every week.
