A student AFL conversation overheard in the library...

This was originally posted on Assessment FOR Learning.
A few days ago I happened to be walking through the library before school. Two female students were sitting at a table doing homework.


One of the students was working on a Math assignment. I heard her ask the other student, "Did you already do your Math homework?"


The other student replied, "No. I wait until after the 'check-up' and then decide if I…

The 3 Magicians

This was originally posted on The Freshman Transition Network.


As spring break is approaching - or what's left of it after we make up snow days - I have been thinking back to last year's spring break. I have to admit that the 2 or 3 weeks leading up to spring break were not exactly my favorite. It is not uncommon for people to ask, “How can you be a high school administrator? Don’t you get tired of dealing with nothing… Continue

All Children Can Learn!

I just returned from the Leadership Alabama Education retreat. It was held in Mobile and began on Thursday afternoon. It concluded today (Saturday at noon). The highlight of the retreat for many was the visit to George Hall Elementary School. George Hall's students come from generational poverty. But, that doesn't hold them back.

Preferred Student Communication Tools

I've discovered this information first hand when I first turned on text messaging on my kid's cell phones. My son, a freshman in high school, managed to rack up 3,500 text messages in one month, and that's having been grounded from his phone for two weeks that month. My daughter is much better, she still calls us, old timers, but chooses to text her friends in college.

Only 12% of students currently check email on their mobile, but eROI…

Scratch@MIT Conference

Cross post from my other blog :Scratch@MIT Conference
