#EdTech Thought

Who Moved My Cheese?

This year (2019-2020) I have a new classroom (two actually) and I’m a traveling teacher along with just about every other teacher in my school. I will be working with a new ICS teacher and I’m not working with Brian.

This conjured up in my a memory from my Caldwell Post Bac Program where one of my professors used wisdom books and one of the books used was Who Moved My Cheese? My big take-aways were:

    • When you change what you believe, you change what you do.
    • Change happens. They keep moving the cheese.
    • Adapt to change quickly.
      • the quicker you let go of the old, you can enjoy the new

    • There is also a section on the website featuring good resources to learn more about what a bibliography actually is and how to create one using the different styles.
    • There are two ways you can create citations in Writinghouse:
      • The first one is manual where you get to choose the source you want to cite then you type in its corresponding info such as title, edition, place and year of publication etc.
      • The second way is automatic and consists of using the search functionality which is provided by WorldCat. Writinghouse will conduct a quick search and provide you with relevant results.
    • Once a bibliography is compiled a user can then download a copy to keep.
