Welcome to Anderson One's 21 Things Wiki


What is "21 Things"?

21 Things is a self-directed course designed to improve your teaching skills and technology use in the classroom. Each week you will be presented with a task from our list of 21 things. Some of the tasks are practical tips and tricks while others encourage you to stretch your teaching practices and learn new tech tools.

Who is invited to participate?

Any teacher, teacher aide, or staff member can join the program. The tasks will help teachers in all grades and subject areas, as well as all experience levels.

How do I take part?

To participate in the program you will need to join our group on Edmodo. Don't worry. This is the first "thing" and we will give you instructions on how to join.
