Media Guide for TRON now available

In April, Disney released the TRON Legacy 3-D/TRON Collection. TRON was addressing net neutrality before the world knew what the net was. This combo pack is the perfect classroom tool to begin the conversation. Yes, I get that Legacy was a not the best plot line but who cares. When you think about the “cutting edge” special effects that are now quaint in the first film and the fact that they actually had to do R&D for the costumes in the second, there’s a conversation to be had about how…See More

Is the Internet a barrier or a bridge for young adults?

By Christine RogersIs literacy in danger because of technology? Will students stop reading and writing all together because they spend lots of time on the computer?I have talked to some parents who legitimately worry about their children slipping away from the traditional ways of books, pen and paper. Afraid of change and yearning for a return to the “good old times,” some worry that technology they do not understand…See More

Hi Kelly, I congratulate you on setting up Pop Goes the Classroom and sharing ideas that many people could use. I lead the Tutor/Mentor Connection in Chicago and am trying to help volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs become more available in poverty neighborhoods. I collect and share information about existing programs, host a conference in Chicago, and use my blog and social media to try to connect programs, volunteers and donors with each other. Interns have been helping convert some of our ideas from power points and blogs to animations. You can see them at this link.

I'm writing because I think many people who do consulting and have businesses like you could use some of your talent on a volunteer basis to act as intermediaries, just as you are doing on your blog. Even kids in schools could be doing this.

I hope you'll take a look and that we might connect in some ways.
