Why digital formative assessment is critical in today’s classrooms – Formative assessment is versatile–teachers can use almost any sort of assignment as a formative assessment. @jayayoo @eschoolnews

Discipline
There’s Still Time to Do School Discipline Differently. What are behavioral issues and discipline going to look like this year? And where are the opportunities to make sure consequences are doled out equitably? @EdSurge @brianedtech

Climate Bill
How the Huge New US Climate Bill Will Save You Money – President Biden just signed the Inflation Reduction Act, which allocates hundreds of billions to fight climate change. Here’s how to get your share. It looks like you have to spend money you may not have to save money. I also think the rebates on EV cars are a bit more tricky than this article implies. I drive a plug-in hybrid. @mrMattSimon @WIRED

Doing Research? Search My Archives

Saturday, June 19th, 2021

Search
If there is any topic related to education that you are researching or just interested in, you can search this site. You can also go to my five archive pages on the left of my home page and search there. After a daily post has been up for about a month, the individual items are moved to one on my five archive pages. While you can also search the Internet, the items stored on my archive pages have been vetted for quality and accuracy by someone who has been in education full time since 1969.

The first three topics deal with social media, learning, and leadership. The fourth features my daily inspirational quotes. There are well over one thousand here and they all feature attractive images along with the quote. You could share one each day with your class or print your favorites to hand on your wall in school or at home. They contain good advice and tips that can make your day. The final page is my humor/music/cool stuff grab bag. Rather than searching here, you can just scroll through the items looking for something entertaining. You can’t miss. Have fun and come back tomorrow for another bunch of my Net Nuggets.

Easy Summer Reading Professional Development – My Book Summaries

Tuesday, July 20th, 2021

Free Resources for Busy Parents and Educators Who Don’t Have as Much Time to Read and Surf as I Do

Since I started this blog in 2009 after caring for my wife who died from ALS, I have summarized 200 nonfiction books. Many are from the field of education, but most are more general in nature. While I don’t think it’s possible to run schools like a profit-making business, I do feel that educators can learn from the business world and from other social sciences such as psychology. If you want to engage in some fast and effective professional development this summer and beyond, start reading my summaries. Each one should take about fifteen minutes so they are great if you don’t have a lot of time.

If you haven’t read the book, reading the summary will certainly let you know if you want to buy the book. I encourage you to do so to support the authors of these important works. If you have read the book, my summary will help you review and internalize the key concepts. Here is the link that will take you there. It can also be found on the left side of my home page. Good luck and enjoy.
