What it is:
Instructify is where teachers can stock their toolboxes with practical, time-saving classroom ideas and cutting edge methods of instruction. It’s where to find useful, free technology to utilize in the classroom. And it’s a fun place to spend your planning period.
Instructify is also a verb. To Instructify means to find new ways to present the same old content. Or MacGyvering anything from software to Post-it notes into something you can teach with. It also works great as a command. As in, “Don’t just teach, Instructify!”
What it isn’t:
Instructify isn’t out to bemoan educational policy. The web is already full of education blogs ranting about how we need to remake the American school as a digital learning cooperative or something.
Do you want to slog through a bunch of pie-in-the-sky pontificating about how Web 2.0 will magically change school from suck to success? Or would you rather find neat stuff you can use to improve things yourself?
Who are these people?
Instructify is brought to you by LEARN NC, a program of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Education. LEARN NC finds the most innovative and successful practices in K-12 education and makes them available to the teachers and students of North Carolina–and the world.
Instructify moderates comments for all first-time posters. This is an educational site, after all. Nothing will trigger your school’s firewall faster than a bunch of spam slipping through. We’ll try to approve comments quickly, though it’ll probably happen faster during business hours. Just don’t panic if you submit your comment and don’t see it appear right away.
The good news: once you’ve been approved, we’ll remember your email address and allow future comments without moderation.
