DEAR Reader

Certainly, when confronted with millions of results on a google search, we have to be able to quickly discern what links will be of value. But once we follow those links, can we stay put, parked on...

Redefining Reading

November 24, 2014

As I sit down to reflect on COETAIL in general and my final project in particular, I’m having a much easier time thinking about how I tailored the courses and projects to my needs than how I followed the specific instructions students were given.

Reaching beyond myself

Participating in COETAIL has been a fantastic way to meet educators around the world who share similar interests and passion for redefining education.

Hungry for a Word Salad?

Have you ever tried Word Salad? No, I don’t mean a salad made with words. I mean the iPad app, Word Salad, used for making Word Clouds? Word Clouds are more than just pretty cloudy words on a screen. When learners create Word Clouds, they are actually looking at data. The data are words....

The sport of arithmetic

September 24, 2014

Last October, I wrote a post “Do we need math” that was inspired by Good’s Future Learning Mini Documentary.     This past weekend, my son struggled with math.  Now in lower secondary school, his vague math abilities are finally catching up with him. His assignment entailed dividing decimal numbers. (Cringe in horror.) I had to go quite...
