Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 9/8/2023

Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my PLN. As a teacher, I feel we have to keep up to date concerning research in our field and current issues in the education system. I hope some of these inspire you, inform you, and even have you asking questions. Thank you for coming by and visiting!

Keeping yourself motivated to reach long term goals is a hurdle all individuals must accomplish to reach their intended outcome.

Following the SMART goals format, students will be able to develop their goals and understand the factors that go into achieving them.” (L:T,; SA:A)

Why your phone battery gets worse over time - “Explore the science of why single-use and rechargeable batteries die, and find out why recycling batteries can be challenging.” (L:H,; SA:S)
