PyxisEdu is our “go-to” professional learning platform at Mishawaka Schools. PyxisEdu is a professional learning platform that has 201 content categories with593 videos, 513 other learning resources, and 60 collections/units. Content is created by a group of edtech pros that are25+ licensed educators with 60+ edtech certifications and 200+ school years. Teachers in Mishawaka Schools use it to harness the power of technology to move from theory to practice and fuel any time learning. PyxisEdu has professional learning resources for everyone such as blended learning, using G-Suite, telling stories digitally with Book Creator, or using Skype to invite guest speakers into your classroom. Most importantly, however, is the fact that at the core of this platform is learning. PyxisEdu is grounded in a strong learning theory that goes beyond just integrating education technology. Our teachers immerse themselves in resources like learning style theories, universal design for learning, and leadership strategies while getting credit for their learning with the PyxisEdu Professional Growth Point (PGP) tracker.
Ah, the life of an eCoach. You are the cheerleader, the champion, the confidant, and the caretaker. At the beginning of the day, you're a hero for fixing a Kahoot crisis, but by lunch time, you're sorting through emails of frustration about the district's new LMS. Your day is a wild roller coaster ride of highs and lows, of twists and curves and near misses. Many of you were classroom teachers before stepping into this role, and you experience the same cycles of frustration and pride that you did in your own classrooms.
It has been our absolute joy to share the power of individualized professional development with teachers at conferences all over the country. We had many conversations with teachers who wanted to use PyxisEdu but felt their school district didn't have the funds to purchase the program for all of their teachers. We heard you loud and clear, and we are proud to introduce the PyxisEDU Individual Premium Plan. This plan allows individual teachers to access all of the awesome resources and collections inside Pyxis, earn any/all badges, and automatically track their progress using Pyxis Points. Whether you are looking for new ways to engage your students or seeking fun and practical tips for license renewal, you can now secure an individual PyxisEDU account for $5.99 per month or $60 per year.
It used to be, “One size fits all,” then, “One size fits most.” Finally, Burger King announced, “You can have it your way,” and the floodgates blew wide open.
Learners today require that teachers get to know them as individuals and tailor instruction to meet their individual needs to help them gain maximum growth throughout the year. Personalized learning has become one of the newest “edu phrases” of the year. Teachers are working overtime to meet the needs of their students, but are districts doing the same for their teachers?
It’s hard to believe, but it’s that time of the year again - SPRING! With warmer weather in the forecast and a little over a month left until summer vacation, many administrators struggle to find time to get everything done to finish up the school year. This time crunch makes it especially hard to research ways to help their teachers reflect on the year while also inspiring them to try & learn new things over the summer. If that’s you, then you are in luck! Below are a few easy ways that my schools “WIND DOWN” and “GEAR UP” for the new school year. Enjoy!
