I've gone through the 'download every new app and try to play with it' phase and now rarely seek out new apps. From time to time though, it's good to see what other professionals are recommending and using...
The young woman walked into the staffroom and dropped disconsolately into her seat. What was the cause of the defeated body language? Could it be relationship problems, I wondered, or bad news about a loved one. Maybe it was a difficult pupil kicking off. No, this primary teacher had just been asked to complete yet another assessment, crunch the percentages and do it yesterday.
Things have been a little rough for me lately, I’ve faced some stress with some personal family stuff, work stuff and relationship stuff, and though that always seems to be the case for pretty much everybody, there have been times where I was so nervous...
"Many of us have been bestowed the project of a pen pal in school. Teachers assign these projects in hopes of children being able to get a glimpse of another child’s life and culture, opening their mind to how other kids around the world live. Hannah Herbst, a 15-year old teenager in Florida, did not take this project lightly but used her pen pal’s story to inspire a pretty impressive invention for harnessing energy from ocean currents.
“I found out that she’s living in energy poverty, and she doesn’t have access to things that I take for granted every day,” Herbst explains the motivation from her 9- year old pen pal in Ethiopia. “Then I was boating with my family through the Boca Raton Inlet, and our boat was really jerked around by the current.

Play boosts academic success, lowers stress, flourishes our innovative side and nurtures well-being, and that’s all backed by research.... Read more »
The Pacific broad tapeworm thrives in the guts of the sea lions that frolic in the waves of the Pacific Ocean, has been identified in the preserved poop of Peruvians mummified some five millennia ago, and is now making its way to seafood-loving Europeans through the briny conduits of the world-wide commercial fish trade.

The sheer scale of numbers of students led to bold proclamations of education disruption and a sector on the verge of systemic change. However, from the perspective of 2015, these statements appear increasingly erroneous as moocs have proven to be simply an additional learning opportunity instead of a direct challenge to higher education itself. Many of the issues confronting early mooc development and offerings could have been reduced if greater consideration was given to research literature in learning sciences and technology enabled learning.
