What’s more, “when you started you’d be 20 miles from where you are going; and now you are 50 miles from where you are going, and heading in the wrong direction....
"Just a few blocks away from where’s he giving the speech, he and his foundation are working with MIT to construct a new model for a graduate school of education to implement his vision. Over the next five years, MIT will serve as the incubator for the Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning, an independent teacher-education school that plans to offer a master’s in education as well as a license to teach a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) subject in grades 5 to 12.

When it opens its doors to teacher candidates in the fall of next year, the academy will use cutting-edge technology and the latest brain research on learning to dramatically transform the way teachers learn—and the way they teach middle school and high school students."

Sleep is one of the most fundamental and basic things humans do. Without it, we'd literally die. So we turned to sleep scientist Patrick Fuller, an associate professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School — to find out what he does to ensure a good night's sleep every single night.
Not only is the idea of telling stories with video really engaging for many kids, filmmaking is ripe with opportunities to connect to almost every academic subject area.

E- This article caught my eye in my Feedly reader today. While the author aptly describes bad e-learning, there is also bad classroom learning - and vice-versa. Is one better than the other?
