Establishing A Culture Of “Can” In Your Classroom
WEAC's insight:

"The long-term output of any school should be not just proficient students, but enabled learners. An “enabled” learner can grasp macro views, uncover micro details, ask questions, plan for new knowledge and transfer thinking across divergent circumstances. This doesn’t happen by content “knowledge holding,” or even by the fire of enthusiasm, but by setting a tone for learning that suggests possibility, and by creating a culture of can."

As Pokémon Go Becomes a Sensation, Ed. Experts Weigh Pros and Cons

As Pokémon Go Becomes a Sensation, Ed. Experts Weigh Pros and Cons | Education Today and Tomorrow | Scoop.it
Young students can practice their literacy skills through the app, which contains a fair amount of reading throughout the game, Torres said.

Other students might be able to use math to analyze where PokéStops will occur, and grapple with the game's points system used to have characters battle to capture virtual Pokémon Gyms. Science plays a part as well, she added, because Pokémon only pop up in their natural habitat areas--for example, a fish will only appear near water.

One of the most appealing features of the franchise's latest iteration, especially for adults concerned that kids are spending too much time indoors, is that the game cannot be played from a sofa. In order to catch Pokémon and level-up, players have to mill about outside. As a result, ordinarily sedentary gamers are getting miles of walking time.

Top 10 Best Free Math Resources on the Web | Edudemic

Top 10 Best Free Math Resources on the Web | Edudemic | Education Today and Tomorrow | Scoop.it
For many students, the words “math” and “fun” don’t seem to have much overlap. Math is often thought of as a dry subject – equations don’t get most people excited – but math lovers have been working to show the more interesting side of math to students in a number of different formats.

Students who find math boring  now may just need to be given a new way of looking at it. Naturally, the internet has come to the rescue with a wide range of math resources designed to help students see how math can be fun and useful.
