Here is a great blog post from I.N.K., Interesting Non-fiction for Kids. It accurately describes the prevalent atmosphere of education today and provides a path to genuine success. Do we have the courage to take a stand?

This slideshare is from the 2010 ISTE Conference which just concluded. It was presented by Chris Lehmann of the Science Leadership Academy in Philidelphia. Please share your thoughts and impressions.

There are administrators who have been educators and understand the teaching process. They are forward thinkers who empower teachers to use their skills and creativity to connect with students and help them find success. When a teacher comes to them with an idea, they say, “Great! How can I best help you?” They are both dreamers and enablers.

Then, there are administrators who administrate by following a list of rubrics. They only make decisions based on their rubrics. If something comes along that doesn’t quite fit their model, they’re lost. Those admins do not make decisions based on the needs of students. They make decisions based on adherence to their administrative formulas. They neither dream or enable. They demand and expect. A teacher can differentiate instruction as long as all teachers do it the same way and that instruction has received the administrative stamp of approval.

Thanks to @ShellTerrell for sharing this link. I am looking forward to your comments.

  • New iOS 13 feature helps you purge unwanted app subscriptions June 18, 2019
    A new iOS 13 feature could address one of the most annoying aspects of the App Store: unwanted subscriptions.  The iPhone maker is once again trying to tame overly aggressive subscriptions with a new feature that will make it far easier to unsubscribe from subscriptions. The feature was spotted in the iOS 13 developer beta, so it won't be widely availab […]

  • Over 30 million accounts watched 'Murder Mystery', according to Netflix June 18, 2019
    Netflix is known for keeping its viewership numbers a secret, sharing them rarely and typically only when the number is outrageously high. Like now. @NetflixIsAJoke, the official Twitter account for the company's comedy projects, just announced that the recent Jennifer Aniston-Adam Sandler starrer Murder Mystery was viewed by around 30.9 million account […]

  • Hands on the wheel with Tesla's new in-car racing video game June 18, 2019
    Why not play a game while sitting and waiting for your electric vehicle to charge up? No, not on your phone. That'd be too easy. Instead, you can now use the very car you're sitting in — well, if it's a Tesla. Tesla's Easter egg drawer full of video games housed in the main touchscreen is bursting with new additions, including a kart raci […]

    The pearl-clutchers at the MTA have a big, sex toy-shaped problem on their hands. Dame, which makes precisely engineered sex toys for women, is suing New York's Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) for rejecting its advertising campaign.  "The vague and sexist reasons behind the MTA's refusal to show our ads are not only barring many businesse […]

  • This community collects extremely charming vintage recipes June 18, 2019
    There are few things more nostalgic — and often, wildly grotesque — than combing through dated recipes. Maybe the thought of Milk Chicken, a vintage recipe involving roasted chicken, banana, milk, and eggs, gives you joy, not nausea. Perhaps you long for the days when your grandmother made Lime Cheese Salad, a delightful combination of Jell-O, cottage cheese […]
