What If The World Cup Was Decided By Wealth? [INFOGRAPHIC]

The 2010 World Cup has captured the globe’s attention and has given us some incredible stories. The recent match between the U.S. and Ghana was a nail-biter as the two teams were pretty evenly matched. But what

if the games were instead decided by the wealth of the respective nation

and not on athletic ability?

We thought it might be a handy lesson to share with students, your friends, and pretty much everyone to give some perspective to just how much of a…

Do YOU Police the Universe?

As we watch the actions of some and what happens to others in our busy world we find it easy to rail against the many unfairness and injustices that appear to take place. The media brings us a daily pictorial torrent of the misfortunes of some and the persecutions of others. So it’s not surprising we find it hard to discern ‘meaning’ amongst this blizzard of information, and it’s not surprising when we create our own ‘mental uprisings’ and, in our conversations, find ourselves making our own…

I am new to this blogging idea. I am taking classes online to get my teacher's licensure. This is the first time I have heard of Classroom 2.0. Can anyone inform me of exactly what it is and how it is used in the classroom?

E-Learning vs E-Teaching

Teaching and Learning are two sides of the same coin but they are different.

A student learns using the web and a spreadsheet.
A teacher gives an assignment that could be solved using the web and spreadsheet, and ideally using different tools.

When we teach our students using TeleComputing tools we are E-Teaching and the students are doing E-Learning
When we go to an online conference we are doing E-Learning and the presenters, E-Teaching.

Non-Linguistic Representation, some info please

So I have been researching non-linguistic representation for my masters program, and it has been quite interesting. Very simply, from what I have found, non-linguistic representation is using visuals to help reach those who are not complete auditory learners. I have learned that it is not a highly popular or researched topic. I have found some nifty web sites about it, but not a huge amount of information. I was wondering if anyone out there has any resources, personal stories about this topic,… Continue

It seems that however well 21st Century education is explained the vast majority just do not understand what it’s about. It doesn’t matter that the roots of 21st Century education go all the way back to the ancient Greeks. It doesn’t matter that 21st Century education is not some new fad here in the United States. John Dewey was writing about this stuff…
