    Somehow this post got lost a week or so ago. With the meteor that hit the Russian town, people got interested in sonic booms. Video and science pages on the Internet received lots of new traffic. Perhaps you looked it up too. Here’s a video from YouTube that does a pretty good job of explaining it – and showing it. […]

    Ever thought about a spelling bee? Remember what it was like to have to do “spelling words in school”? If you’re a parent and have questions about spelling — or if your son/daughter ask “why they have to do spelling”, consider that kids who become good spellers early on do better in school – and indeed, in their life’s career […]

    Another article from the NY Times. This one is one to “read into a bit”. It can actually be one for parents to read through. Now, you may have to put aside the fact that Mr. Gunn is on TV as a fashion expert with his own reality show, etc. You need to read through the interview portion and realize […]

    This NY Times article is short, but helps form a basis for preparing for taking ACT and SAT tests. As noted in the article, developing your “personal pacing” is a key to success. And that comes from practice. Of course, if you lack the educational skills (for whatever reason), now may be time to sit down and convince yourself that […]

    According to what we saw, this is to be credited to: wonderville.ca. And we like this. It’s about the concept of the “really small”. If you’re a fan of science fiction, you’ve no doubt heard of “nanotechnology”. If you’re a user of modern technology, you hear about nanotechnology too. This is a video seemingly for the “younger set”, but if […]

    Recently ran across this. It’s kind of fun! You may have seen it – as it has lots of views! You may have to play it twice as sometimes it’s difficult to understand what every person is saying. But it’s interesting – and another of those videos that leads you to want to ask your teacher to “explain this in […]

    This video is from Top Gear. It’s been seen more than 10-million times! Maybe you’ve seen it before. The title is a bit of a teaser too! This is about the dynamics of a unique automobile. It’s a FUN video – but full of learning. If you can get your science or math teacher interested – and get him/her to […]

    Here’s another article from Chief Learning Officer. It’s geared again to business people – and specifically ‘leaders’ that can do a better job by learning to be more “curious”. In past posts we’ve talked about the skill of curiosity. Curiosity is a good thing when it becomes something you do naturally. You ask questions, you seek opinions, you listen, you […]
