The personal learning network for educators
One great man - John B. Sparks once created a great Histomap of the Whole Word History in one picture. This map spread the world with lightning speed, so I think it is a reason why John continued to do such a "boring" (for someone) job.

Over the many years that #Edchat has been engaging educators, one topic that always generates a huge amount of interest, based on comments, is the faculty meeting. Teachers are required to attend the faculty meetings that administrators are required to hold and very few are happy with the results. The only upside is that with each meeting a check may be placed in the box for attending.
Technology may be a way to update the tired model of the faculty meeting. Email for the faculty may…Continue

One Education Twitter chat that precedes all others is #Edchat. It was founded July 30, 2009 and has run continuously ever since. For those who are not Twitter chat savvy, a Twitter chat originally was a discussion that uses a specific hashtag to conduct a real-time chat on a specific subject. Of course education chats are education-specific. Typically, they run about an hour in length and are running on set periodic…Continue

This is the most common question, I observed the students usually have. We all know how to learn math, but what has to be done for learning math according to the common core standards. It’s quite organized once you…Continue
We are now better than fifteen years into the 21st Century and educators are still discussing what role technology plays in education. The fact of the matter is no matter what educators, who are mostly products of a 20th Century education, think, our students today will need to be digitally literate in their world in order to survive and thrive. Digital Literacy is a 21st Century skill, but therein lies the rub. Most of our educators have been educated with a…Continue

Everybody loves success. And it’s easy to achieve when you are on the right road with the right motivation.
Nobody likes to fail
We all know too well what it’s like when we don’t achieve what we’d hoped to. Remember those resolutions? The times you tried to stop something, or start something new, or change a habit? We’ve all been there; we’ve all started the new fitness regime, or the new diet, or the new hobby, and fallen by the…Continue

I started my challenging immersion into the thrilling world of knowledge when I was only 3-years old when I became a pupil at preparatory classes. When I finished my primary education, I asked my parents to let me continue my further studying at college. That was the first step to molding such abilities of mine as commitment, leadership and dedication - understanding that only hard work and everyday work everyday can bring positive results and achievements. The adaptation period in different…Continue

To lead, you have to know where you are going. Which isn’t always easy.
For some people it’s easier to work out where you don’t want to be first.

It is rather difficult to teach students, but to motivate them is even harder. At schools and even at colleges you have to contact with children who try to reject someone else's influence. And the fact is that this rejection is a logical result of misconception of the roles of both. It is possible to overcome the conflict of generations, and you can touch the children, and they can hear you. If you are so lucky to succeed and make student listen, then you can motivate them to…Continue
