Enviable Stuff 2015-08-20

The blog I’ve enjoyed reading most this summer has been Clarence Fisher’s.

I’m still a believer that my default classroom tech set up: classroom blog, discussion boards, individual blogs, wikis, google docs and hangouts, flickr, skype, and a few random pieces of production software (audacity, etc) does more to give kids a voice, to connect them with people on the other side of the globe who have new ideas for them to evaluate, than 90% of the VC dollars out there have done with the latest apps.

A Learner-Centered Syllabus Helps Set the Tone for Learning

By: Mary Bart

At its most basic level, the syllabus is used to communicate information about the course, the instructor, learning objectives, assignments, grading policies, due dates, the university’s academic integrity statement, and, in some cases, an increasingly long list of strongly worded admonitions on what is and isn’t acceptable behavior in the college classroom.

What Fitness Bands Can Teach Us about Classroom Assessment

By: Karen S. Buchanan, EdD

A colleague of mine recently engaged with a new technology tool that has changed her life. She purchased and became a vigilant user of the fitness band. This wristband tracks her movement and sleep. Although fitness bands are cool tech tools, their “magic” is rooted in the continuous feedback they provide on one’s progress toward fitness goals determined by age, height/weight, and activity level.

#PB10for10 Board Book Edition


It's that time of year again... PB10for10! I love this day - the day my husband probably hates, as my list of books to buy grows exponentially. As I eagerly await to write out my own list, I have to pause and reflect of the fact that I haven't created a blog post for 2 years.
