Math learning and teaching can be so much fun especially when done through the right strategies. One of these strategies is through engaging video content. To this end, we have compiled 20 of the best and most popular YouTube channels for math teachers. These channels provide a wide variety of videos, tutorials and animated courses covering different mathematical concepts from algebra to geometry.
There needs to be some positive acceptance that young people are going to use this technology. I don't think that just denying it is reasonable. I also don't think an extended period of removing technology is likely to be helpful. I think that it is reasonable to take technology "time outs," to have environments and maybe even times where the family interacts with each other and not the outside world through texts. It's sort of a return to the dinner table as a place where you learn how to engage in face-to-face, meaningful contact. Put your tech aside. You can return to it afterwards.
And I think to lead by example is critical because we now know that parents are as guilty as their kids in pulling out a phone during a dinner conversation and texting. I think that that is really critical just to say it has to be balanced and we're going to practice how to balance it as a family.
Giftedness is a trait which is hugely misunderstood, even amongst professionals who should be in the know! These 10 facts are here to shed light on what giftedness really is. I hope they dispel some of the myths and misconceptions many believe about gifted children.

I was interviewed for this Washington Post article but it took a turn I didn't expect. I was hoping it was going to be about how Alexa can help shape good questions to get good answers and that Alexa can't take the place of a librarian. But hey, it was nice to participate!
I LOVE Canva. It makes me look like a graphic design superstar without much effort at all. This week I used the free online tool to create custom bookmarks that go along with our "Walk a Mile" reading challenge. The "Etsy Cover Photo" template inside of Canva is the PERFECT size and shape for bookmarks.…
I have been running a Coding and Robotics Club at school for a couple of years now. I started with coding and last year picked up a large number of NXT Mindstorm robots so it felt right to combine the two! Megan and I have spoken about this new 21st century language called coding in previous posts here and here. We spent the first semester including coding into our library progam which can be read here.
We use both fiction and non-fiction to inspire our girls in Library lessons. These ideas and skills can then be transferred into the Makerspace Zone and into Coding and Robotics Club. In this post I thought I’d share some of the books we use and have available for our girls to borrow. By sharing the books and stories during library lessons and having them on display promotes interest in programming and learning to code so creations can happen!
