Admire this school. A child is more than a SATS score

I saw this courtesy of Colum McAndrew.  Oh, I really hope that more educators in the US get this message, because this is the message that we need to give our kids. My son is learning different, so he doesn't usually do well in standardized tests, even though certain allowances are made (like extra time, etc.) so he can try to complete them. He's actually a rather bright boy, and he has rather low self-esteem, so I'm constantly trying to remind him that he's more than a test (just like adults are more than their resumes).  I, too, didn't do well in standardized tests as a kid, yet I did well enough in school. (Never took the GRE for grad school, yet had a 4.0 GPA, which should say something!) 


US education system--please wake up, and read this, and learn from it! We need to bring up kids who are more confident in whatever skills they have, even if they are not measurable or conventional.

The You Want to Know About Copyright in Education Infographic

The You Want to Know About Copyright in Education Infographic | educational technology |

As I’ve mentioned before—it is not only important for educators to encourage students to push the technological envelope, but it’s equally essential that we teach them to navigate the digital world in a responsible manner. But in order to do so, we must first become familiar with copyright rules and fair use guidelines ourselves—a task that can seem very daunting and frustrating at times.


If you’ve ever used online materials for teaching and learning, then I’m sure you have wondered one or more of the following: Do I need permission to use this image? Can I share this video on my classroom web site? Would it be best for my me and/or my students to create my/their own media?


Well, it may not answer all of your burning questions, but the copyright flowchart shown below will surely help with some of the confusion surrounding this very relevant and significant topic.
