The personal learning network for educators
“Happy New Year” wishes normally come for everyone around the beginning of January every year. Only if you are a teacher or a student do you appreciate this wish twice a year – early January and early September, when schools start, at least in Greece! And, if you are a teacher, new years always begin in September and last until the end of August, every time! That is when you make sure you have re-arranged your home desk, bookcase and…Continue

Most of us have heard about blending learning. Many even use it in their teaching practice. Still, some confuse blending learning with other concepts such as technology-rich classrooms or online classrooms.

So, I took the Google Certified Level 2 Exam last year and failed it by 4 points. That stung.
I was embarrassed, I pouted, and felt sorry for myself. (Yes, my life is a living hell.)
But after a few hours, I got over myself and realized that this is a real learning experience. I thought about what failing feels like to my students. Do they feel the way I do when they fail?
The difference between their tests and mine was…Continue

That overriding positive tone however is one constant in Edutopia posts that engenders loyalty, trust and a reliance from about a million followers who want to know more about education. To have my work read and appreciated by that vast audience is…Continue

I recently read yet another article that questioned the effect of using technology in education. I believe it stated that there are 3.6 million educators using edtech as the basis for the post. The post itself was well done, but throughout my reading I was troubled by what defined an edtech-using educator. How is it determined that an educator is truly an edtech user?
I have been in meetings where educators had to fill out questionnaires…Continue

Is there a modern classroom without a sign of technology in it? We’re seeing tablets and smartphones all over the place. The iPad changed the world of education.
