    Here is another in the ongoing saga about “technology” in education. Recently, we saw an article stating that it’s not yet right to introduce technology into the classroom (or, maybe a better way to put it – expand it in the classroom). Yet – as this article states (from THE Journal – and the author is a school principal) “students […]

    This is kind of cool! For any of you doing projects that involve photography (and who doesn’t do SOMETHING with photos nowadays?) this is kind of fun! Some simple tricks and tips to using a tripod in creative ways. And for those of you who are “better than average photographers”, this might even be a bit “ho-hum” — but since […]

    Here’s one you might not have expected in the “educational blog”. But we’re adding it anyway! This is a “business article” – and it’s about how a company can improve profits and cut its marketing budget simply by elevating its customer service one level above crap! The challenge in the learning environment is to break this article into its pieces […]

    In a past post, we talked about “confidence”. There are a lot of videos and articles and educational reports about confidence. Some make sense to many – some don’t make sense to any! But confidence – whether it’s being creative in the workplace (and not just creating images, commercials, graphics, etc. – but problem solving, identifying issues on which you […]

    Interesting video on “staying focused”. Give this a viewing. Think about it. Do you agree? Could “mind wandering be what has allowed so many unique innovations to be created? Or is that a different kind of mind wandering? Staying focused – in the moment – may be something you have to “work on improving”. See what you think!

    Not much to say here. Texting and driving simply don’t go together. You have heard the stories of horror when it happens to someone else. That’s the point – don’t think it just happens to someone else. It can happen to you – or you could be the victim of someone who is texting. Take this issue seriously!

    Here’s a useful article from CBS Moneywatch in March 2010 — but it’s still poignant today. Maybe this is information you get at school or have seen online. But it’s worth reading again. Summer internships can give a student a real leg-up when interviewing for jobs after graduation. After all, what better way to talk about your skills, your education, […]

    This is a video from “Careers Out There” that we really like! There are lots of career paths to explore and maybe, just maybe you’ve thought about “music” – but you’ve kind of shied away from instruments because it may not be (in your mind — or those of your friends) the coolest thing to do. But if you honestly […]

    There’s been a lot of interest in meteoroids, meteors and meteorites since the big meteorite hit earth in Russia a while ago. The topic is fun – and it’s a good way to start learning about astronomy. The following is a fun article about the topic … and may be one you want to read twice so you get it […]

    Here’s an article about spelling and grammar. We’ve probably run something like this before. But in a recent conversation, the topic came up again. And in a recent post about spelling bees, we talked about how good spelling sets the stage for better learning in the future – and better educational outcomes – and career success,  etc. It all matters!
