Before implementing an educational practice in my classroom I do some research. I appreciate any ideas that are suggested but I do rely on my own decision as to whether it will be beneficial for me and my students. Effective teaching is more about the climate we create - and less about which tools we use to teach them. Use the tools that you have a passion for - or at least connect to - and try it. Whether data walls, portfolios, displaying student work, etc. "If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming."-Haim Ginott
