"Excellent educational content can be found on YouTube. However, not every teacher can access YouTube in his or her classroom. That's why a few years ago I compiled a big list of alternatives to YouTube. Over the years some of those sites have shut-down, started charging a fee, or have switched into another market. So this evening I went through and eliminated some sites from the list and added a few new ones."
"We’ve all endured “death by PowerPoint.” It’s a painful experience for the audience and probably not all that fun for the presenter either. To help my students deliver effective presentations—free of those deadly bullet points—I have my go-to applications."
NASA just gave Curiosity the Star Trek treatment. In anticipation of the rover's upcoming landing, the Agency has released two versions of a video entitled "Grand Entrance." The first is narrated by William Shatner, the second ...
"Some of us are really out-going and enjoy being around other people, which is also known as an extrovert; while others rather be an observer and keep to themselves, which are called introverts.

This graphic shows you which one multitasks better; will it be the introverts or extroverts?"
"I've previously written about research on the importance of “good endings.” It’s a priority for me to end my classes on an upbeat note, but I’ve been thinking lately that I might be able to enhance its benefit to students if I’m a bit more intentional about it with a regular formal closing activity that might take a minute or two. I’ve certainly often done this, but I’m going to try doing it more like 70-80% of the time instead of its present 50%."
'The latest findings from the real neuroscience of creativity suggest that the right brain/left brain distinction is not the right one when it comes to understanding how creativity is implemented in the brain.
"What if, when students failed, teachers praised them? In the business world, the world of entrepreneurship, failure remains inevitable but so does success if you keep plugging away at your goal.
Embracing this in education teaches students to learn that mistakes lead to success. Science teachers probably understand this concept better than most teachers. They just happen to call it hypothesis or refer to it as an experiment instead of failure."
Is there "a difference between a 'student' and a 'learner,' between a 'teacher' and an 'educator.' Teachers want their students to be responsible and curious. They expect their students to follow class rules and do their homework. But what about the reverse? What do students want from their teachers?"
Very interesting. Product development is possible, but the human brain has capabilities that a computer sill not surpass in that time. I doubt we understand the human brain sufficiently at this time to speculate about a computer's comparitive ability. Good ideas for science fiction writers, though.
