App #46: Benson Handwriting Program [Promo Codes Available!] | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
"Handwriting, many will argue, is becoming a lost art in this world of technology that the students are growing up in. Why not amalgamate the two, instead of having to choose from one or the other? I believe this app is perfect for doing just that. A lot of my students are incredible typists, but can't do cursive writing at all. Hopefully, with apps like this one and proper instruction from dedicated teachers, this does not become the norm."

Who will my students BECOME after they LEARN with me?

Who will my students BECOME after they LEARN with me? | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
LEARNing has to involve change…change in the way the LEARNer thinks, feels and acts. It’s not just about LEARNing “stuff” or it shouldn’t be.
