Live Curious, Go Beyond

So... How do I NOT live curious when you a have group 19 five year olds with more than 400 questions each per day each. So with a total of 7600 questions per day and with 10 years as an educator, I go beyond by giving the best of me everyday and motivating my kids to live curios and go beyond in every single situation.

Becoming an Apple Teacher

posted Mar 29, 2017, 6:45 AM by Barbara Brunell

On March 22 & 23 we had the opportunity to attend .EDU at URRE. Speakers and attendees from different countries were invited to participate. One of the sessions we attended was "How to become an Apple Teacher". Our main takeaway is that it is a great tool to learn and assess yourself about Apple technology in the various Apple devices. The steps on how to become an Apple teacher are really clear and there are unlimited opportunities to achieve this goal. The main purpose is to obtain badges and there is no cost involved. If you are interested in becoming an Apple Teacher follow this link: you will need an Apple id to log in (it can be the one you use to download apps). If you would like more information about this don't hesitate on contacting us. &

TI Projects

My first choice to collaborate in the TI Projects is Digital Citizenship. As a mom I rely on Common Sense Media to choose what movies, books or even games I expose my child to. I am always in the look for safe sites for my students to log to. It is very important to teach students about digital citizenship since the moment they have their hands on a computer and my students are starting doing that at the beginning of the school year.

Vision of the DT role

We compared our DT role to basketball training. We wanted coaching, practice, innovation, professional development, and tohave fun in the process. 

Student Empowerment

posted Jun 1, 2016, 5:22 AM by Barbara Brunell

Students who are engaged give more, that is something that sounds really simple but at times we need to find that spark that will engage them, we need to know them better, how do they learn, when do they learn and what do they want to learn. PBLs are a great resource to put the learning in hands of the student, where they can discover and answer their driving question , investigate and immerse themselves in the learning. We want students who love learning, students who ask those questions that will make the learning happen. Students who always want to know more, who will never stop questioning.
