    Students today are so much more “digitally native” than any student of the past 2 decades. They now make their own presentations and have access to some pretty neat (yet basic) technology. If you have access to such equipment – or a teacher who would love to help you do this kind of thing, that’s great! Video presentations are the […]

    We thought this was kind of cool. More and more people are getting into “video”. Well, video with an iPhone doesn’t necessarily make you a professional videographer. But – you just may find yourself “liking video” more and more. You may get a camera with some “real settings” on it. To make good video, it all starts with “white balancing”. […]

    Kind of fun. The conclusions are pretty “obvious” when you get to them. But then, stop and think of times in your life when you maybe did something based on emotion and not after thinking! Okay — don’t want to give it all away!

    In past posts we’ve talked about technology and where it’s going. It seems that as little as 3-5 years ago, there were big questions as to how (or if) it will be incorporated into the learning process. The Gates Foundation came out saying “it’s all about learning content”… meaning, if learning content is available and can be delivered with technology, […]

    Considering a Charter School for your children? It’s not an easy choice. But you are wise to check them out. Check with your state for performance. Ask for references. Visit them. Ask questions. There are Charter Schools strictly for those in need of credit recovery – and older students who have been classified as “students at-risk”. Maybe they dropped out […]

    A very interesting video. It’s about 17 minutes, but take time to watch it all the way through. This is valuable for students at all levels – especially those reaching 8th/9th grade – and moving through Snr. High and into post secondary schooling. The knowledge to start early – can have many benefits throughout one’s life – school, career, etc. […]
