Alexis Watt's insight:
As the desire to measure impact of learning on students (be they adult or in-compulsory ie: pre-completion of mandatory secondary schooling or anywhere in K-12) rises, particularly in corporate or enterprise settings, reference tools and standards gain both appeal and relevance. Why reinvent the science when adaptive application can deliver a contextually relevant outcome? Helping learning facilitators to recognise and pull the levers at their disposal can only serve to support improvements in whatever form these take.
Here’s a list of blogs that feed my teaching soul, hunger for knowledge, and need for deeper insights into teaching, learning and writing. There are so many wonderful blogs that it’s impossible to list them all here, so I’m listing the ones that have been most relevant to my own professional development. As such, they should be relevant to any teacher who wants to turn online teaching and/or publishing into a fully-fledged career.
The communication of knowledge and ideas is intrinsic to the human condition. Our earliest ancestors had a rich oral tradition, through which they passed on what they knew about the world, often across great distances.
Today, the avenues available to our quest to gain and share knowledge are boundless, but I’d like to share with you five of my own personal favorites.

As a parent you might be exploring ways to better motivate and teach your children to become the best versions of themselves. As a friend, your goal might simply be to have as much joy as possible when spending an evening with a loved one; a goal that these days seems to be the most difficult to attain.
Everyone I know seems to be suffering from the same problem: they are addicted to the idea of connection. They seem to be reading all the right books and acquiring a tons of knowledge, but I do not see most actually taking the time to stop the consumption part and actually implement what they’ve learned.
