As an educator for the past 17 years, I have taught at the secondary and middle school levels. I have seen the needs of my students evolve. However, one thing remains steady: students, first and foremost, need to be loved, nurtured, and encouraged. Students need to learn to laugh at themselves and realize that they each have valuable, unique gifts to contribute. I often use my own humorous stories to help students learn to laugh at themselves, by practicing on me. I am eager to contribute to students in a new capacity as a writer. I look forward to this new opportunity.

I teach.
I teach teachers to prepare their students.

When the video “Shift Happens” (2007) was featured at a professional development day, I clearly remember one take-away:
“We are currently preparing students for jobs that don’t exist using technologies that do not exist in order to solve problems we don’t even know are problems yet.”

That video was created by Karl Fisch and modified by Scott McLeod. The video provided statistics on the rapid exponential growth in population and in information. Several slides called attention to the tsunami of information available to students noting that, “there is more information in a week’s worth of The New York Times than what an average person knew in the 1700s.”

However, I wondered if the “Shift Happens” video placed a misguided emphasis on adjusting skills and content in order to prepare students for unidentified problems?

I would suggest that every generation of educators has prepared students for an unknown future.

Educators cannot predict the future for their students, but educators can address trends. For example, in 1957, the American public began to reconsider how the role of public education may contribute to winning the Space Race with the Soviets once Sputnik had been released. The investments in education made as a consequence resulted in increased scientific advancements and many spin-off technologies. In contrast, however, predictions such as those at the 1964 NY World’s Fair of a future with flying cars, jet packs, vacation trips to Mars and beyond, underwater cities, and robot laborers have not yet came to fruition.

This is just one of the reasons that I believe all schools need teachers who are prepared to embrace change. They need to change to reflect this new world, this flatter world, this information-abundant, globally connected, rapidly changing, technology super-charged world, where students will need the same old traditional skills.

Fisch made no silly “predictions” like those at the NY World’s Fair, his video served to bring attention to trends that require an increase in the skills of communication and sharing information.

In order to communicate and to share, students from all grades must think, read well, write well, and speak well regardless as to what predictions are being made about new industries or technologies. In trying to anticipate the future, educators must not discount how the generations of students who learned important literacy skills became the graduates who are now responsible for evolving changes of the present.

In the years since the “Shift Happens” video, the role of educators is not to predict the next Steve Jobs or Bill Gates or company that will spawn new jobs or dominate an industry or the next “shift.” Instead, the role of educators must be to continue to teach those skills of thinking, reading, writing, and speaking well that contributed to the “shift” that is now happening for our students.

There is no surprise that “Shift Happens,” and the students who are prepared to think, to read well, to write well, and to speak well will not be surprised either.

That is why I prepare teachers to teach their students.
I teach.

I am a former high school English and Spanish teacher. I taught for four years both with the flexibility of creating my own curriculum and lesson plans and with the constraints of a standardized, pre-prepared curriculum. My BA English combined with my MSc Library Science, Distinction give me a wealth of formal education in creating and organizing many different types of educational content. As a freelance writer and trainer, I have been contracted to write for a variety of projects, however, my research and writing work on a Fred Pryor Note Taking and Study Skills cd is most relevant. This e-learning was targeted at high school students and college freshman. Further, I have worked as a Learning Technologist in higher education in the United Kingdom. In this role I researched, blogged about, and provided training on the latest advances in educational technology and how to apply these in the classroom.

I am a curriculum writer and designer with experience across a variety of disciplines and subjects. My experience includes developing curriculum, instructional videos, assessments, and test items for K-12 and corporate learners. Although I specialize in designing digital curriculum, I have substantial experience with writing curriculum for traditional and blended delivery.

I am skilled at writing items and curriculum aligned with CCSS as well as developing technology-enhanced assessment items. I also have classroom teaching experience which I believe gives me invaluable insight and expertise. Furthermore, my Master’s degree is in Online Education and Educational Technology, so I’ve received formal training on best practices in digital content development. Most of all, I love what I do and take great pleasure in creating learning materials and assessments that are high-quality and effective.

Melvin Charles Hathorn was born in Wilmington, Delaware. He is currently an instructor at Albertus Magnus College and is a historic Interpreter at the Mark Twain House in Hartford, Connecticut.

He has traveled through many countries including Greece, Europe, and Uzbekistan. It was here that he survived a bout of E-Coli in Samarkand, Central Asia.

Included in his travels was the former Soviet Union, where he was almost arrested in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg,) for a minor traffic offense. He also just missed being pulled off the train at the Soviet-Finnish border by Soviet passport control.On that same journey, he survived a bout of E-Coli in Samarkand, Central Asia.

He has also piloted planes, and has earned a certificate in small vessel sailing.

His career included teaching on a variety of levels from elementary school through college. As a former training officer for the State of Connecticut, he has developed several training courses for juvenile correction staff. His publications are many, including three novels, several short stories and articles that are on his website, www.authorsden.com/mel.

Throughout his life, Hathorn has shown a passion for justice. He has spoken out on many occasions for improving the lives of the disadvantaged. His new novel, The Prisoner’s Dilemma, continues that pattern. It is an attempt to bridge the gap between an old corrupt system and the new one that is yet to come.

Subject Area(s): Science

I’m a nerd. And I love to encourage the nerdiness in others. I began my science career as a child, experimenting with wax, plastic and matches, and nearly burned the house down. I went on to become a biochemist, then a science reporter (8 years), then a writer, curriculum developer, and multimedia producer for the Exploratorium in San Francisco (10 years). Now I write science curricula for prominent publishers such as Pearson as well as for educational non-profits. Among my favorite projects: a year-long high school Anatomy and Physiology course (for the National Academy Foundation), a instruction manual for predicting surf conditions at your favorite beach (for the Exploratorium) and a set of hands-on activities to accompany a website about ancient astronomy (also for the Exploratorium). Getting your hands on science is the best way to learn it, and I love to write (and test!) new science activities. I also operate a small business offering science-themed walking tours. Geology exploration, anyone?

My background is strongest in life/health sciences, chemistry, energy, nanoscale science, earth science, and engineering. I’m familiar with NGSS and Common Core, and at the same time bring the liveliness of informal science ed to formal situations. I’m adept at using CMS’s, templates, and a variety of workflow-management tools to collaborate. I tutor at-risk kids, and it’s taught me how to write curricula that will reach them. I believe every student has inherent curiosity, and it’s our job as educators to tap into it.

Grade Level(s): Early childhood, K-5, 6-8
Subject Area(s): ELA, Science, Social Studies, ESL/ELL/ESOL

As a former ESL teacher with a masters’ degree in that field and the parent of a teen with special needs, I am interested in humanity from the cultural, linguistic, and developmental perspectives. I explore what makes us each who we are by reading Smithsonian magazine and writing fiction. My English teaching background combined with a love of learning to inform my work on teachers’ guides for both Cobblestone and Dig magazines. I learned to use the C3 social studies and Next Generation Science standards so well that the editors forgot I didn’t have a social studies background. The majority of the guides focused on the ELA Common Core standards and the latest ones I worked on were done in InDesign. My knowledge is broad enough that I am able to copy edit science articles for Front Vision (Xiaoduo Media), a magazine geared toward high school students in China that looks at the cutting edge of science and technology as well as the history of science. I am the author of one cultural article on llamas and the Quechua people as well as a handful of fiction picture books for the EFL market in South Korea. I am open to writing assignments for students from Pre-K through middle school and editing assignments for all ages. Thank you for your interest.
