  1. A. – All the time! Whenever I think of something I want to do I look on-line for ideas to help me with it! Thank you for appreciating us – We appreciate you too!!!! 🙂

  2. More than once a day for sure! I’m not quite sure how we survived before google (thank goodness for The Mailbox).

  3. C. Since we usually get together to plan ahead for the week, we go online once a week to do that. But then during the week, it seems like we almost always have to adjust our plans to match what the kids have done during the week, so it involves a second time going through our files and going online to check for ideas.

  4. Definitely more than once a day! Teachers and others who work in the education related fields have so much to offer. They are some of THE most creative people I know!!! Thank you to all who selflessly give of your tried and true ideas.

    Have an awesome week!

  5. I’m the program manager, so I mentor all of our teachers. I go online at least once a week, often 2 – 3 times a week looking for ideas to forward on to them.

  6. I go online at least once a week if not more! I am always looking for fun new ideas for the kiddos in my care.

  7. C. a couple times a week. I usually add resources to a technology bibliography, which I distribute to teachers.

  8. I check for ideas several times a week. At least once per day either before school or after. I look on Mailbox first then check several other teacher blogs.

  9. I check the Mailbox daily as it is the best site for ideas and info.
    The other sites once a week.
    So my answer is A

  10. C: A few times a week. It is always interesting to see what works well for others, get some new ideas, or just remember good ideas that you have forgotten. 🙂

  11. I am the assistant director of a church affiliated child care center. I look online at least 2 times per week looking for fun ideas to pass onto my staff.

  12. A. I’m looking to be inspired all day! Before school and after. Seems like I’m always trying to improve ways to make learning fun and memorable.

  13. I check at least once a day at work and anywhere from 5 or 6 hours a week for different ideas. There are so many great ideas out there.
    Love to see what new ideas are out there.

  14. I check on line at least once a day. It gives me a breather from my preschool class during the day! Love The Mailbox!

  15. I go online for ideas more than once a week. It usually depends on the week, but sometimes it is everyday.


  17. More than once a day…my kids nap at school, and I do a lot of online planning and searching then…and usually at night, when I change my plans for the next day!

  18. I am always looking for new and fun activities online! so at least one a day when something comes to me ill google activities

  19. A I am always looking for new ideas. Sometimes during the day something will trigger a what if moment and I have to go online to see if someone else has come up with classroom ideas to match. I have also had opportunity in my searches to locate ideas for another teacher to go with her theme unit. There are so many great ideas and blog-sites out there that make teaching so much easier and at times cheaper than it was 25 years ago when I walked into my first classroom!

  20. I am online once a day or so trolling for good ideas. Usually seeing something triggers an idea in me or I find tried & true fabulous teaching ideas that really enrich what I teach. Thanks for sharing teachers!

  21. I’m a mix between A & B … some days I’m looking more than twice in a day and other days I’m only looking once.

  22. It depends on the day–sometimes several times a day/other times a couple of weeks may pass-but mostly weekly.

  23. B! I love to surf the web for ideas. I check emails once a day. Wish I had more time but once in the morning. If I am planning then I may go back and do more research!

  24. I am at least online for teaching ideas several times per week. I used to be every day but commuting to my new school has made that harder!
