  It’s been one surprise after another for 11 months straight.  Now we’re 18 days away from releasing a documentary that aimed to understand how the education community is balancing the need to move fast and slow with artificial intelligence — at the same time.  We’re grateful to the exceptionally diverse group who opened their doors, their minds, and their hearts to help produce this eye-opening film. It’s called Blindsided by AI: The bigger picture, and it tells a story that words alone cannot.  It premieres with a session at ISTE on June 24th in Denver and will be stream ..read more

Let It Start with Me… Learning to Pay Attention to Children’s Strengths
BAM! Radio Network | Where 15,000+ Educators Share What Works
by Debra Pierce
3w ago
As child care providers get caught up in the day-to-day, sometimes they can become focused on classroom management. They become fixated on certain things about children- often misbehavior in all its forms- aggression, biting, breaking rules… the whole gamut. When this happens, the classroom environment changes. Soon, the children who are not doing these things start to become invisible. And teachers start to have false beliefs- that they are managing the class well, supporting child development, understanding each child, and that they are doing their best. Every child is one of a kind, one in ..read more

It’s All Out There for the Taking… But Which Early Childhood Training Should I Choose?

With a simple Google search, early educators can pull up scores of training organizations. Some have fancy websites with videos and testimonials. Others are simple with no frills and cheap prices. There may be professional affiliations listed, although many are unfamiliar, but impressive, nonetheless. After a few minutes, it can seem overwhelming. They all start looking the same and, unfortunately, the distinguishing features of the trainings often boil down to lowest price and shortest length of time to complete. Potential students may conclude that if a training organization has a website, s ..read more

He talked with us for the Blindsided by AI documentary on GenAI in education. Exc ..read more

Whoa nelly, I bet that ai generated banner really grabbed your attention. I don’t even have a cat, but my ‘purpose or ‘intention was to catch you off guard, just a bit, figuring you’d expect one of my usual motivational reading photos. I breathe reading and writing, what’s with this drastic change from your expectations? Here’s my thought process. Change is coming so fast, keeping up is a challenge. When “Read Across America” morphed from its original intent to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday, every March 2,  that was jolting. I have at least twenty-five titles here, and years of fun expe ..read more

Being an early childhood educator is rewarding in many ways. It’s exciting to witness growth and development and make a positive impact on so many little lives. Educators can also foster a love for learning, build relationships, and have an opportunity to express their creativity and flexibility. In addition, they can become a positive role model for children and families and have an opportunity to continue their learning and growth as an educator. When teachers are in training, they are often given a rosy picture of what it will be like to be an early childhood educator. Oftentimes, they are ..read more

Singing and Moving in a Developmentally Appropriate Classroom

by Gail Multop

Singing and moving with preschoolers is a staple of the early childhood classroom. But I’ve heard from many teachers who care that too often preschool teachers don’t always use these skills to the children’s best advantage. For example, some have complained to me that teachers don’t let children pick songs that they like. Some years ago, I learned from special education teachers that having cards with pictures on one side and lyrics on the back allowing children to pick which song they wanted to share. So, never one to pass up stealing a great idea, I created such cards from index cards, pasti ..read more

Coming right up! Feb. 7, 2024 “World Read Aloud Day”! I wish we could celebrate every day!

Ride Out into the Storm Together

None of us are immune to storms. We rarely see them coming. And when they do come, they can be crippling. I have been through several during my 27 years in education, and while I’d like to think there will be no more, I can not be certain. But … I am more equipped to ride them out than I ever was, and here’s why. We often believe things won’t get better during our most difficult times. All we can see and all we can think about are how bad things are and how much pain we are in. Our thoughts are consumed with getting better and feeling better. Because we are in the storm, we cannot see anything ..read more

How to Weather the Storm When Our Students’ Behavior Slips

Taking steps backward sucks! Pretty harsh, I know. But I know I am not alone in feeling this way. We’ve worked hard all year to help our students acquire skills and develop habits, and it is painful when we see them regressing. These steps backward have a way of rearing their ugly heads right around now—due to holiday breaks, snow days, and cold weather. I believe there are three things we can do to help us push through the days or weeks when we feel as if we are losing ground.   Limit Our Losses (Don’t Let One Step Backward Lead to Two) It is human nature to become frustrated when we fee ..read more
