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…

10 Specific & Practical Ways Of Teaching With Video Games

by Terry Heick, TeachThought.com

The idea of teaching with video games is an exciting concept leading to a challenging practice.

Right off the bat the topic is a bit polarizing, the whimsical connotation of “games” juxtaposing harshly with the rigorous tones of classical academia. But past that,…

Public Speaking, Death and Twitter in the Classroom

How many times have you said something about public speaking or your reluctance to give speeches and had someone come right back with the threadbare cliché about how “one study” found that “the average person fears public speaking more than death?

Who conducted this study, exactly?

Regardless of whether or not this “study”/cliché can be…

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…

Online Education Platforms

My name is Alexander Kefallonitis and I am a second year student at Cass Business School in London.

As most of us nowadays, I search for several subjects or things I don't fully understand in classrooms, in the web.

While I was doing that I came across a website called The Open Academy.

Since I have been searching for college material on the web for two years now I have visited academic earth, searched for video lectures on youtube and I can tell you that The Open…

Flipping the Classroom

I also have been researching flipping my classroom and I'm super excited to dip my foot into it after our PSSA's are complete.  I would like to preview the first math chapter my Pre-Algebra students will see next year in Algebra.  There are going to be tons of questions and lots of adjustments once the flipping begins but I think trying this method out NOW will help me to decide if I want to go all out…

Media Guide for TRON now available

In April, Disney released the TRON Legacy 3-D/TRON Collection. TRON was addressing net neutrality before the world knew what the net was. This combo pack is the perfect classroom tool to begin the conversation. Yes, I get that Legacy was a not the best plot line but who cares. When you think about the “cutting edge” special effects that are now quaint in the first film and the fact that they actually had to do R&D for the costumes in the second, there’s a conversation to be had about how…

Classrooms for the Digital Age

I am definitely a digital immigrant.  Ironically, my job is to support 35 teachers who teach digital natives. While I am not afraid of technology, I do have what Marc Prensky would define as a accent.  On example of my accent would be that I send out a monthly newsletter and then print copies for each teacher to review at monthly meetings with teams of teachers.  I would classify two of the teachers I support as digital…

Positive Classroom Discipline - By Lynn Staley

Are you a new teacher? Are you struggling with discipline and classroom management?

To many teachers, discipline means to punish, but does punishment transform the misbehavior? Does it work?

Discipline means to teach. Rather than detention and missing recess, positive child guidance focuses on both the weaknesses and strengths of each child and then teaches the specific skills necessary to be successful in the classroom. It is time to discard the traditional paradigm…

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

Original post

The concept is both simple and revolutionary – to create a university which is tuition free.

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…
