The Biggest Myth In Education – You are not a visual learner — learning styles are a stubborn myth. @veritasium @juanbenet @SamLutfi @googlesearchc

Bullying with ‘the science’ is the opposite of real science. This deals with the media touting flawed studies. Note: It’s from the conservative New York Post. Decide for yourself if you agree. If you disagree, let me know. @RichLowry @nypost

The Better Boarding Method Airlines Won’t Use – This is a good problem for students from middle school on up. I think it would also be a good group problem to solve prior to watching the video. Be sure to start the video at the beginning. @cgpgrey

Muay Thai trainer shocked as Apple Watch calls cops during an intense workout. If you have a newish iPhone or Apple Watch like I do be sure to pay attention if it takes a sudden hit. @newscomauHQ @AlleyneJamie



I’m a food scientist — you’re making these seven dangerous cooking mistakes. Cooking is a piece of cake — unless you don’t know how to handle food safely. @brookenkato @NYPOST



Project-based learning can make students anxious (and that’s not always a bad thing).

Inspirational/Funny Tweets



Humor, Music, Cool Stuff

Fear Of The Dark – Iron Maiden – Violin & Guitar – Golden Salt – This starts out a bit slow, but the crank it up soon. You don’t have to be and Iron Maiden fan to like this. @goldensaltduo
