The personal learning network for educators
The state tests will be done soon and that's usually when most students and even some teachers check out for the year. I always feel differently. While the pressure of the test is gone, now the fun can start. I can experiment and play a little. I explore other resources and test out new sites.
Since everything I wanted to cover in the curriculum is done and all the grades I needed are in, the things I meant to try all year have worked their way to the top of the…

When the times are tough financially and your business is on the rocks because of debts, settling them with your creditors may be the only option remaining. However, before making that decision, you want to make sure that it is the right decision to make. It is worth noting that debt settlement affects your credit score, making it difficult for you to qualify for other loans in future. As such, if there is another option, you will want to look into that first.
To know for sure that…Continue
Teachers are busy people. They usually have enough time to go through the lectures and leave space for
discussions at the end of the class. When it comes to teaching essay writing, however, they don’t have enough space
in their program.
They will explain what the essay structure is supposed to look like. They will assign a topic. And that’s it. The
student is left under a huge pressure to figure out the essay writing process.
As parents, we’re responsible to make this…
The lack of social and emotional skills can lead to burnout. Unfortunately, it’s not easy to develop these

life and they can be developed.
Schools are just starting to understand how emotions can affect students’ way of learning and overall well-
being. Thus, students who were lucky enough to have compassionate teachers growing up have been trained

Psychometric testing will help the company to understand the calibre of a candidate regarding behaviour, aptitude, and personality. It becomes difficult if the company must take every candidate through a detailed interview process when the client timelines are very short for completing any project. Therefore one scientific approach to cover all areas including skill, intelligence, and personality can help the company to save time and hence money.

Any version of WordPress is easy to handle and install. A standard WP site has three components – the installation, contents of the wp-content directory and the primary database. The wp-content directory contains all the themes, plug-ins, and the uploads. While most site owners do not access the database directly or manage the data in the store, the WordPress database is always working behind the scenes to keep the site online.
WordPress has been traveling far and…Continue

In the beginning
When I began teaching digital citizenship in 2010 it was an innocent time. We were only worried about the students believing all websites were real. I directed students to The Dog Island website, where you could pack up your dog in a crate and send him off for a week long romp on a beach. The site was very believable; pictures of the dogs, and even information about how to ship your dog. There’s other sites too; you can learn…Continue

I have parents coming into my classroom today asking how their child is doing in my class. They only have a 95, how can they get a higher grade?
This happens over and over again. I wonder why they're here. I don't think it's to make themselves feel better about how great their child is doing in school. I also don't think that they are very worried about the 95 not being a 98. I believe it's to show their child that they are fully invested in…
