The personal learning network for educators
Shopaholics do not agree to the fact that they are shopaholics until and unless they are forced to agree that they are affected by the addiction of shopping, and they need to do seriously something about it so that they do not waste their entire savings and cry about it on a later date.
In this post, we will help you spot the problem and if you spot the issue, go ahead and look for a remedy so that you get enough time to be at ease in the future.

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.
If you are studying biology at college, you may no more believe in evolution theory which was told to you in school. But anyway, your…Continue

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.

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
