On our new Preservice Teachers website, you'll find links to lesson plans, Office tools for teachers, classroom management strategies, and teacher communities that will help get your student teaching off on the right foot.
I've spoken with a number of students who plan to make education their career, and one common theme seems to be "OMG! Can I do this? What have I gotten myself into?" So if you feel this way, you aren't alone.
On the website you'll hear a principal/superintendent talk about his expectations for student teachers and identify what he sees as common pitfalls. I've also included links to teacher blogs...
Patrick Harless, an algebra and geometry teacher at Fay School in Southborough, Massachusetts, uses the inking capability of a Tablet PC and Microsoft OneNote to work through math concepts with his students. In an issue of Mathematics Teacher, a monthly periodical put out by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, Harless analyzes this process of "scribing"--a new technology-based instructional strategy.

Today's post about a creative use of Access 2010 is by Abhay Parekh, who's in his last year of studies in engineering at the University of Mumbai in India. Abhay also teaches lower-level students how to create and use Microsoft Access databases.
For my final project, I had to create a website that tracks real-time details of flights, buses, taxis and other services for a fictional high-traffic airport. I needed a database that could feed this mass of data through my algorithm, so I could predict when and where taxis were needed.
I recently asked a group of students about how and when they use Office Web Apps. Based on their feedback, I've got some advice on how they can help you.
