Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:
Agreed some connections don't deliver. Go to plan B and ask a close friend or one who knows you well. Hmm what does this say about virtual friends. Do we need more accountability? F2f or tweet? Maybe need connected tweets. What makes one truly connected?

Kids Share Their Thoughts on Student Engagement - Edutopia | 21 century education | Scoop.it

"A while back, I was asked, "What engages students?" Sure, I could respond, sharing anecdotes about what I believed to be engaging, but I thought it would be so much better to lob that question to my own eighth graders. The responses I received from all 220 of them seemed to fall under 10 categories, representing reoccurring themes that appeared again and again. So, from the mouths of babes, here are my students' answers to the question: "What engages students?""
