Fundamental ethical issues in unnecessary surgical procedures

In clinical practice performing unnecessary surgical procedures is inconsistent with ethical practice because all surgical procedures carry definitely some degree of risk. Every year millions of patients go under knife, but many of them are enduring great pain and shelling out thousands and dollars for surgeries they don’t really need. The estimated figure for the unnecessary surgical operations varies from 30%-70%. It is observed that majority of surgeons perform…

Virtual Learning: Change of Heart?

Beginning this week’s learning, I was definitely an advocate of using virtual worlds in the classroom. I thought it would be difficult to find resources that emphasized the disadvantages of virtual realities. However, there is a lot of research that points to potential pitfalls of using virtual environments.

 

I found that just about every advantage could be spun into a disadvantage and vice-a-versa. To me, virtual worlds seem to be a matter of opinion. A more liberal educator…

Glogster V. Excel Posters

My character poster (much like this one: link) that I made in Excel included a picture of myself, the word "blissful" and its definition. It was very plain and I would probably only use this in the classroom to present basic ideas.

My Glogster poster was much more in depth and interactive. It included many facts…

The History of Careers in America: Infographic



The History of Careers in America

From shifts in the economy to advances in technology, the career choices of Americans have changed dramatically since the 1900s. Since the days when “farmer” was a popular occupation, to the present when 50 percent of the top 20 fastest growing jobs are in healthcare, career choices have certainly shifted over…

Beginning-of-year Activities

I consciously overplan the first few days. The worst possible first-day scenario is to arrive unprepared. Over the years, I've collected a number of first-day activity ideas - far too many to use.

I've pared down the activities based on the following considerations:

  • My first goal is to build classroom community, making all students feel comfortable and successful.
  • My second goal is to establish routine.
  • My third goal is to formatively assess students'…

Educator Musing: We Can Have Teachers Without Borders Part 3

Location! Location! Location!
What Does Location, Location, Location Mean?
It means identical homes can increase or decrease in value due to location. It's repeated three times for emphasis, and so you will remember the phrase. It's the number one rule in real estate, and it's often the most overlooked rule. The best locations are those in…

Reflections of an Educator - Guest blogger Tonya Thompson

A few days ago, Justin and I got the privilege of spending a few hours with the ever-insightful and inspirational author and speaker Mark Sanborn. We had unknowingly crashed a professional public speakers meeting, and we got a chance to have an experience that was both unusual for us and really, really interesting. While Mark’s speech was directed…

It's never too late...

I got the idea for writing this post while listening to a Taylor Swift song (insert laughter/joke here). Yes, I happen to enjoy the occasional song by Ms. Swift. By no means is this post meant to change the world or is it meant to provide some great insight into an educational problem. It is however, meant to encourage and motivate you.



The song is titled "Innocent," and there was one particular line that struck a cord with me...



"Today is never too late to be brand… Continue

Do You Think University Should be Free? Then Meet Shai Reshef of University of the People

Original post

I discovered the University of the People a couple of months ago and right away its mission really intrigued me. The concept is both simple and revolutionary – to create a university which is tuition free. In today’s world of rising education costs and student debt escalating out of control, this seemed like an alternative worth exploring. The concept is…

About Chinese New Year and Chinese Mothers

Happy Chinese New Year! The Chinese use the lunar calendar in addition to the solar calendar. According to the lunar calendar, the new year this year was on Feb. 3, which is the Year of the Rabbit. The twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac cycle every 12 years. Because every month in the lunar calendar has 30 days, and there are no months with 31 days, every 4 years the lunar calendar is corrected by repeating a month.

The Chinese keep track of their birthdays using…

How do we define learning...?

I will start this post off by saying you will not find any answers here.

 At best you might be more confused than when you started.  This year

has been the year of change for my German students and myself.  We have

been pushing the envelope when it comes to technology integration in a

foreign language class.  Overall, I can honestly say things have been

going quite well.  Students seem to be actively engaged and interested,

and most importantly they have taken… Continue

5 ways to encourage fundamental change...

This post stems from the thoughts of @gcouros' most recent post Is Change the True Barrier? Change has been and will be for the foreseeable future the most

pressing issue in our schools, our communities, and in our society as a

whole. George's question was simple: What is holding us back...is

"change" at the heart of the problem, or is… Continue

REBEL - Education Reform Blog - revisit...The factory model does not work for schools...

Tom Whitby has encouraged all education bloggers to write a positive blog on how we should reform the

educational setting. I have decided to revisit a previous post of

mine...



If you have ever walked into a factory that produces a finished good from raw materials, it is frankly an amazing process. Dating back to

the early 1900's, Henry Ford revolutionized…

Criticism hurts...but how you deal with it is all that matters!

The path to growth and development can be ugly at times. Educators are part of a world that is continually changing and evolving, and as such

we are forced to take a leap, and at times take a leap when we are not

ready. Going through all my undergraduate classes at Mizzou we were

always told how rewarding and fantastic the field of education is, and

from where I sit right now I could not agree more. So...the big

question… Continue

Never underestimate the power of a child...

I watched this video on TED: Ideas worth spreading (which I highly recommend) http://www.ted.com/,

and I have to say I was really intrigued by the topic. Every day at

school I get the opportunity to see students growing and

developing...some more than others, and some not enough. However

inconsistent their growth may be, one thing is for certain...the growth

and development of children can be summed up in one word - amazing! If

we… Continue

John Wooden's Corner

This was originally posted on The Freshman Transition Network.
John Wooden - the man, his accomplishments, his life, and his legacy - is a gift to teachers trying to help students reach their full potential. By bringing John Wooden into the classroom teachers will have an amazing opportunity to give your students glimpses into the type of character and virtues that need to be present in their lives. For that matter, students can… Continue
