You see, we're not building one space 5,000 times. We're building the space that our kids, teachers, and community need. And it's ok to be different from someone else's space.

Try something new with your students this year. 

I normally don't like to create "click bait" blog post titles, but this one
seemed to fit. Twenty-five resources can be overwhelming, but there is a
good mix of different types of items. There are links to websites with
lesson plans, iOS apps, books, videos, and samples of student work to fit
your learning style. 

Scratch was developed by MIT a little over eight years ago. It uses a
visual programming language that is easy to start for stud

A very relevant question. Educators are in an uncomfortable position between the right to express themselves as they like in a public (or private) forum and their social role as educators and 'role models'.

Michael Jongen's curator insight, November 16, 2015 11:59 PM

Australia is facing a crisis of computer literacy after the latest national IT tests showed a sharp drop in results among school students. According to the report released by the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) on Tuesday, nationally only 55 per cent of students were considered IT proficient. The results come despite up to 98 per cent of students reporting that they had access to a computer at home. "One of the things that we are observing here is that the increased use of devices for social and communication purposes has hidden the decline in the use of more sophisticated uses of the devices," said ACARA's chief executive officer Robert Randall. 

Sue Osborne's comment, November 17, 2015 12:24 AM
This is interesting and supports the anecdotal evidence I see with students every day. I have Year 7 students who don't know how to print a document in colour, who are GLUED to their iPads. Frustrating - they think they know it all because they are constantly attached to the device, but they know VERY little.
