LEAF Network Professional Development Program, June 4, 2014

Hi all! I really enjoyed speaking to you and hearing your comments and suggestions at the LEAF event. The slides from the talk and the workshop, in animated form, are below (including the slides that we didn’t get to, since I thought they might be interesting to you), and I’ve posted some helpful links to go with the slides.

(Note: To advance properly through the animation, just wait a few seconds for the pause button to turn back to a play button and click forward. If you are experiencing difficulties, you probably need to install the latest versions of Flash and Shockwave from Adobe.)

Sources from slides (and some other things that I talked about):

In case you are feeling particularly studious, here are some other items that you night find interesting:

Less Academic:

Lastly, I invite you to check out the resources on my web site in general- the blog often contains examples and discussion items that you can incorporate into your classroom curriculum, and the “Econ Classroom” section has a bunch of online articles and videos that are helpful for both students and instructors involved in courses at the advanced high school/beginning college level. You can also get notified about new content and other fun stuff by joining my Facebook page, following me on Twitter, or following the EDIWM Tumblr.

I hope this is helpful, and feel free to send follow up questions or inquiries my way at econgirl at economistsdoitwithmodels dot com.

    I was unable to attend your seminar at the FED, but wanted to include the subject of “Behaviorial Economics” next school year. I am new to teaching and teaching Economics, for that matter, and try to seek out unique and different methods for teaching Economics to high school juniors and seniors. Looking at your PPT, it seems you do that quite well.
    Any suggestions would be much appreciated. In addition, if you are willing to “appear” in my classroom, via “FaceTime” or Skype in the fall, let me know.
    Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    In Vista the process is similar and your goal is “Service Pack 1″.

    Select a user account with administrator permissions that you can log on with its password
    or the default Windows 7 administrator account you’ve enabled it before.
    And a”new version of Windows Backup will provide a more capable system than any prior version”of such under any name it has taken during its”existence as part of Windows has”ever had.
