By “productivity” tools and resources, I am referring to tools that can help teachers get their jobs done more efficiently or effectively, at no cost (beyond the effort required to use the resources, of course). There are so many of these types of tools out on the… Continue

I just came home from the movies. In the film I saw (The Kids Are Alright), one character when asked why he dropped out of school says, "I just thought it was a big waste of money for something I could learn myself, from a book."
This was something I had realized early, sitting in the town library one "PD" or professional development day, years ago in grade 8. I was flipping through a National Geographic and chanced upon an article about Jane Goodall. I was stoked, we had… Continue

When the stuffed crust pizza first came out in my area, like everybody else we tried it. We found out quickly that the pizza makers had became so fascinated with the stuffed crust that they had forgotten the rest of the pizza. It was a lousy pizza.
That is what many makers of "educational games" do. They get fascinated with what they are trying to teach and forget about the "game." Games above all should be fun. On the other side teachers and parents ignore games that… Continue

To me, this statement gets to the core of what needs to change in education today. We cannot teach if we ourselves are not 21st century learners. Teacher’s first need to learn with today’s technology. They need to… Continue
