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…

Utilizing MP3s in the College Classroom

Earlier this year, as I was teaching my Developmental Reading and Writing students, I noticed that during the break, they would immediately plug in their MP3 players or smart phones and begin listening to music files. They would also share music with one another. That started me thinking about how to utilize their interest in music to get them more interested in what I was teaching in the classroom. Many of my students struggle with note-taking and other traditional ways of learning new… Continue

Using VoiceThread Technology in the College Classroom

Recently, I decided to make a VoiceThread for use in my 20th C. American Literature class. I started exploring different teaching strategies for my students when I realized that they were not very excited to read and respond in the traditional way. A VoiceThread is a wonderful tool which enables you, the instructor, to upload your media file (like a slide presentation), add your voice to it, and then allows the students to add their comments as well. The entire VT then can be seen by either… Continue

A Classroom's Hierarchy of Needs

A Classroom’s Hierarchy Of Needs



I just got home after a morning of observing two classrooms. One was wonderful, a place that all students would long to be in. One was dreadful, a place that students would only just barely tolerate and where one student actually said, when asked to make a metaphor using the word school, “School is jail”.



What made them different? On the face of it they were both… Continue

Needed: New Expectations

If you were to make a graph of the appropriate closeness of a teacher to a student, it would be inversely proportionate to the academic abilities of the student. Therefore, the more academically capable the student, the more relational distance to their teacher. This could be partially due to the number of students in general education classes, versus a resource room versus a student in a one-on-one situation.



Consider how much a teacher knows about a student's family of home life. The… Continue

Digital Amnesia: Reflections on Frontline's "digital_nation"

PBS's Frontline recently aired a program called digital_nation: life on the virtual frontier. The program raises some important issues about the affect of different technologies on the human psyche.



One guest argues that with each leap in communication technology something is lost in the everyday psyche of humans. He cites how Homeric bards could recite thousands of lines of epic poetry. But with the advent of books, humanity lost the ability to memorize large amounts information.… Continue

technology

So far I've learned a lot about technology tools in my Technology Tools class and have really enjoyed seeing what is out there. Google has so many options it seems endless ;) The biggest key to success and learning about them is setting aside time to experiment and try different methods and tools. I have started with the basic Google tools and have done pretty well. As I move along I hope to be able to learn about more of them while additionally becoming proficient. Unfortunately these aren't… Continue

Learning To Walk Before You Can Run - The Hierarchy Of Learning

The levels of learning within the cognitive domain are considered to be hierarchical, which requires the lower levels of learning to take place before the higher level learning can take place.



In simple terms you must, walk before run. Learning must take place one step at a time. However, many students expect to go from A to Z without learning everything in the middle. For example, in…

Times They Are A-Changing

To quote the legendary Bob Dylan's famous song, "The times they are a-changin'". I am now currently teaching Math to some of the best and brightest students this side of New York. Each and everyone of them makes me proud as they have the skills in analytics and understanding numbers that may just surpass other schools.



But regarding more about me, I mentioned that times indeed change because just a few years back, I was the student and I was the one making fun of other people, or… Continue
