PenPal News - Connecting Students Around the Globe to Discuss News | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

As the name implies, PenPal News connects classrooms across the U.S. and the world to create electronic PenPal relationships. But rather than just connecting classes, PenPal News connects classes to discuss current events. To help students understand the topics that they're discussing with their penpals, PenPal News provides short video introductions and articles about each topic.

Resiliency Skills and Dropout Prevention

Schools need not wait until students have already

dropped out or are in imminent danger of dropping

out. Instead, schools and teachers can intentionally

develop key resiliency traits and skills in students to

provide protection against circumstances that would

otherwise be associated with dropping out. Providing

this knowledge in an environment rich with trusting

and support adult-student relationships can mean the

difference between dropping out and completing high

school, which means making very real differences in

the lives of students.

The SEO Puzzle: The Most Important Pieces [Infographic]

The SEO Puzzle: The Most Important Pieces [Infographic] | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

It doesn’t really matter how much you study it, it’s almost impossible to get the perfect SEO (Search Engine Optimization) score for any long period of time.

 

Each search engine has their own algorithm to rank websites, and as if that wasn’t complicated enough, they change that algorithm frequently in order to perfect it and make sure that the same sites don’t hog up the top positions simply because they’ve figured out the x-factor in the algorithm to dodge other more popular sites that have the traffic, content mass, and extensive Internet presence enough to be ranked at the top.

 

I would probably need an endless number of articles to cover all the different aspects of the perfect SEO, and if I tried to do that, I would probably not be able to pinpoint it anyway.
