  • Guide offers collaborative learning insight
    A new resource aims to share tips on how to establish a collaborative environment in classrooms, and it also provides relevant and engaging lessons, organized by subject matter and grade level. Available for download at http://news.mimio.com/collaborate-to-the-core-2015-pr at no charge, the 36-page guide includes “7 Tips to Your Collaborative Classroom Makeover,” which discusses how teachers can arrange their classroom to promote more collaborative learning. There are lessons in math, language arts, science, and social studies for three grade ranges encompassing the K-12 spectrum. All lessons meet the Common Core State Standards, include tips, and can be used with or without educational technology. “Research shows that collaborative learning develops higher-level thinking and that students who work together understand and retain information better than students who work on their own,” said Stevan Vigneaux, director of product management at Mimio. “Equally important is the development of social and interpersonal skills that blossom with cooperative learning. The lessons in our new guide bring a new dimension to learning that encourages discussion, cooperation, open-mindedness, a variety of viewpoints, higher-order thinking skills, and debate – all elements that help students learn how to collaborate with others and thus become better educated individuals, ready for the work world.” One example of the collaborative lessons within the guide is a social studies lesson for grades three to five, called “Who Can Vote?” In the lesson, the teacher uses an interactive whiteboard or printed handouts to display a scrambled list of characteristics that describe voters and non-voters within the United States (the guide provides sample content). Students are divided into groups, each of which will use a mobile device with the MimioMobile app or a copy of the handout. Each group sorts the characteristics into voters and non-voters. They can use the app along with the MimioStudio Collaborate feature to let the whole class view their results, or one student from each group can present their findings.

The fun started on Friday night, July 18 at the beautiful residence of Haftu Hishe’s family where members were invited for dinner. The host family offered the guests the very Tigrean traditional drinks of Siwa and Miyess along with delicious enjera and Tihlo. The house was full of laughter from every corner as guests enjoyed talking to each other and shared jokes of experiences of their younger years. They all departed with a happy mood and in mind that they had a long day by the morrow to attend the annual general assembly of KASDA.

Kilte-Awlaelo Schools Development Association successfully celebrated its 9th anniversary in Boston, MA on July 21, 2012. The Boston and Maine brothers and sisters were well prepared for the success of the event. Members who flew to Boston to attend the event were also well prepared. Most members rented their own cars from the airport which helped to reduce the burden of transportation on the hosting city brothers and sisters. The time they were going to spend to transport members used it to coordinate other activities of the event. And that strategy worked perfectly.
