Designing a Change

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 13:47:10 +0000

Although not as much of a rockstar in the ed reform headlines as STEM or maker, the concept of “design thinking” is beginning to seep into the top ten. Like STEM, maker, and PBL, it’s touted by advocates as a new idea that could revolutionize learning. Also like those other terms, few people can agree […]

Picture Post #16

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 16:34:38 +0000

It has been a while since I posted one of these collections, although the entries about our Cuba trip last November includes some nice photos. Anyway, here are a few random shots from the past few weeks, with more, as always, in my Flickr feed. My friend Kathy and I have made a commitment to […]

Speaking in Clichés

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 22:25:15 +0000

People involved in business and other institutions often communicate in clichés. Insider words and phrases commonly used but vaguely understood, even less so by those on the outside. Education certainly has it’s share, with many of them borrowed from other organizations. Like many of those in a post titled 17 Development Clichés I’ll Be Avoiding in […]

3-2-1 For 1-8-17

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 01:22:06 +0000

Three readings worth your time this week. End of year retrospectives can be tedious and, in the case of 2016, rather depressing. However, Planet Lab’s review of their favorite satellite imagery from the past year is beautiful and the pictures tell some interesting stories. (about 5 minutes) dana boyd, who has made a career of […]

Just the Cool Stuff, Please

Sat, 07 Jan 2017 13:22:12 +0000

Warning: early morning, barely edited, snark ahead. Mixed in with all the other lists from the previous year, we find EdSurge’s Top Ten S’Cool Tools of 2016. Top ten cool tools for school, get it? Anyway, the people at EdSurge don’t explain why these web services are the best of the year or by what measure they […]

The Neighborhood Suckers’ Paradise

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 18:48:34 +0000

Last month I found myself living fifteen minutes from a “Vegas-style” casino, many years after moving out of the real Las Vegas. I started my teaching career in Sin City and lived just a few miles west of the infamous Strip for nine years. Even so, our visits to the casinos were infrequent, mostly going […]

A Very Bad Definition

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 21:09:43 +0000

It’s the start of a new year and that means thousands of articles, posts, and essays forecasting the future. Some are thoughtful and intelligent. Many are trivial. The vast majority will be flat out wrong. One titled Technologies That Will Define the Classroom of the Future certainly falls into that last group. First of all, technology will […]

The Theory of Science

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 14:11:36 +0000

Most of the essay 5 scientific myths you probably believe about the universe is stuff only a science geek could love. However, item number five is a wonderfully concise explanation of the scientific term “theory” that anyone can understand. The Big Bang: just a theory. Gravity: only a theory. Even the entire field of putting these […]

3-2-1 For 2017

Sun, 25 Dec 2016 23:22:14 +0000

For the final 3-2-1 of 2016, here are three books, two audio books, and one movie you may want to consider enjoying during the coming year. Three books worth a space on your reading list. The Innovator’s Mindset by George Couros.  George is very much an advocate for empowering students and this book is a wonderfully […]

New Generation, Much of the Same

Fri, 23 Dec 2016 14:40:44 +0000

Researchers over analyzed and stereotyped baby boomers, Gen X, and Millennials (aka Gen Y), so now it’s time to do the same to Gen Z. And Adobe is right on the job with a new report on Gen Z in the Classroom. For the study, they interviewed around a thousand students ages 11-17, plus 400 […]
