Dealing with boredom
What Students Truly Mean When They Say They’re Bored (And What to Do About It). If activities are either too hard or too easy, students may struggle to pay attention.

Check out my summary of Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance by Angela Duckworth @angeladuckw @educationweek

FB Gives us: Fear, Loss of Jobs & Less Teen Driving

Sunday, July 22nd, 2012

Page two suggests live streaming school events, tips for customizing learning, ignorance as a weapon, and a player piano that picks up tweets. Also check out my summary of Flip Your Classroom.
