Disabilities vs Differing abilities

Posted on September 14, 2012 at 8:01pm 0 Comments

As I have been travelling internationally speaking on assistive technology, I have been tuning into the fact that we tend to use the idea of disabilities incorrectly.  We tend to use it as a category where we can place children or adults who have issues causing them to be outside of the "norm."  The more I meet these people, the more I see that they have differing abilities from us, but still have a voice (figuratively) and a story to be told.  Do they lack certain abilities that we have,…

Why do we need Social Media in schools today? Facts versus Truths.

Posted on August 14, 2012 at 4:06pm 0 Comments

I have been consulting with districts for the last few years regarding the need for incorporating social media into daily instruction. We, as a connected community, have heard all the truths as to why and why not use this mode of teaching. As we are famous for doing in education, we list out these truths and then pick the ones that best meet the needs of some group. I say some group here as there are times when the truth that we as individual teachers or administrators may focus in upon are not… Continue

I had a little time on the 4th of July to reflect on the whole notion of Freedom in Education. Much of that reflection was focused on several discussions, both live and digital, I had over the last month on the overall state of education. A recent digital discussion on #edchat focused on personalization in education. My contention, as it has been for many years, is that it is important to personalize education within the context of the information being taught. Those of us who have a background… Continue

Musing on Education moving from local to global to universal

Posted on June 14, 2012 at 9:33am 1 Comment

Before moving into my current role of consulting, I always looked forward to the summer months as a time for reflection and further growth. I was one of those teachers who enjoyed teaching and taking classes in the summer, along with picking up a part-time job to make sure I could make ends meet. The summer permitted lots of time for good reflection on my own personal teaching and on education as a whole. I still like to take some time each summer and review the overall state of education and… Continue

Learn a Foreign Language on Your Own with These Tips

Learning a foreign is a very complex process. And, it becomes even more difficult if you want to learn it by yourself. When you go to classes and have a trainer to teach you that language in various lessons, things are quite easy. However, if you decide to do it by yourself, you should be prepared not only for finding the ambition to keep learning that language, but also for a lot of work to prepare the right materials.You will need to be very organized and do extensive research to prepare your…See More
