Apps for Smart Student Habits

As your new students settle back into the routine of school, you'll be taking the time to get to know them: their strengths, their weaknesses, and most importantly, their habits.

A Short Teacher’s Guide to Programming Languages

Choosing a programming language to teach your students can be tricky; after all, to an unpracticed eye many of them look exactly the same! However, different languages are used in different situations, to create different kinds of programs, or even for different hardware depending on the situation. This means that there isn't any one answer to the question of what programming language to teach, but that there's a lot of information about each language to consider. Here's a list of some languages you might have heard of recently, along with some notes to help you decide.

Technology for the Tired Teacher

We also know that the midwinter break can be a valuable time for exhausted teachers to 'reset', in a matter of speaking. Throughout the year, one of the most common sources of stress for a teacher is the sheer amount of work that goes into keeping your classroom current. Grading quizzes, calculating gradebooks, filing paperwork and making parent calls—these and more are all necessary tasks, but can take up a lot of time and effort an educator may not have the reserves to maintain. However, using the right tech can help make these jobs more efficient!...

Early Childhood and Technology: Is there a “Too Young”?

ne of the greatest concerns of a rapidly evolving classroom is discerning whether or not something is appropriate to use. Teachers have already been practicing this when choosing content (no teacher is about to give complex algebra to first graders, for example) and in technique (such as a class using jigsaw reading only after all the students have learned to read). As a result, it’s no surprise that technology is coming under the same scrutiny, with many educators now asking the question: When do certain pieces of tech become developmentally appropriate for my kids?
