Free Access to Calm App for K-12 teachers

Any teacher with a K-12 classroom can gain free access to Calm, the #1 app for meditation and sleep AND get free access to Calm’s paid subscription service available on Android, iOS, and the web – a $59.99 value!

Teachers will score unlimited access to guided meditations and mindfulness exercises, including Calm Kids, which offers programs tailored for age groups from pre-K through high school. The goal of this initiative is to provide teachers with the tools and resources they need to help kids to develop a lifelong capacity for greater self-awareness, concentration, patience, and resilience.

If you’re a teacher, just head here and fill out a simple 30-second form and you’ll be approved within just a few days (it usually takes about 3 days to approve applications). Once you’re approved, you’ll receive a welcome email with further information on how to get started. And then you’ll start receiving tips, suggestions, and best practices to include mini breaks to your school day!

Saturday TCEA Robotics Competition- Post 1

It’s 20 degrees outside on a frosty Texas morning and I am on my way to the CISD Robotics Competition sponsored by TCEA. I am a judge for the competition in the “Inventions” section. I keep hearing the “Here Comes the Judge” jingle in my head.

20Degrees

TCEARoboticsOutside

In the Inventions Contest, teams will create and develop a unique robotic invention that will solve a problem.
Student teams will need to approach their problem, working together like real team of engineers, to solve a
common challenge using the Engineering Design Process. The Engineering Design Process is a particular course
of action and sequence of operations intended to achieve a result or produce an outcome. The Engineering
Design Process consists of the following steps:
 Research
 Plan
 Prototype
 Document and Test
 Commercialize.

 

We are judging with a rubric correlated to the key words: Research, Plan, Prototype, Document and Test, and Commercialize.
