“I don’t worry that we’ll become dumb because of the Internet,” Wolf says, "but I worry we will not use our most preciously acquired deep reading processes because we’re just given too much stimulation. That’s, I think, the nub of the problem.”


If you've given up on reading paper books for the ease of your e-reader's screen, you may want to step back a bit. Neuroscience confirms that our brains use different areas to read on paper and screens, and you need to exercise both.

I firmly believe that the biggest near-term wins for tech in the classroom are tools that help teachers better connect with their students. This looks promising.

Nice little summary.

Google just might change the way you teach—in a good way. It makes grading more efficient, enriches the classroom experience, and allows you to connect with your students on a level they understand—all for free.

Take a few minutes out of today and read this. From beginning til the very end.
White male nerds need to recognise that other people had traumatic upbringings, too - and that's different from structural oppression.

"Recent alumni who responded to the SNAAP survey articulated many ways that their arts training assists them in their work lives and contributes to their health and well-being, their relationships with others, their ability to collaborate and provide constructive criticism, and their ability to creatively solve problems."

Sure, I guess I buy that.

OK. That's pretty neat.
 
Paint your face and support your team 

As the #WorldCup moves into the knockout phase, the stakes are getting higher and your team needs your support more than ever. Instead of getting your hands dirty with face paint (the ultimate sign of team allegiance), you can paint your favorite team’s country flag onto a photo of you and your friends. No need to go all the way to Brazil to shout out loud who you want to win. It’s simple to participate, all you need to do is:

* Take a photo of yourself and up to 5 friends who’d like their faces painted
* Share it on Google+ with the hashtag #PaintUSA or any other country in the knockout round: http://goo.gl/9ogBwE
* After a few minutes check back in your stream. The faces will be painted with the country flag of your choice

You can explore #PaintUSA to see other fans of team USA. Or check out other teams by replacing USA with another country still participating - like #PaintBrazil

May the best fans win!

Fascinating. A long read, but find some time and read it anyway.

Yes, yes, yes! A must-read white paper from +Esther Wojcicki if you are interested in having an informed opinion about the future of education. 

Hits all the sweet spots - student collaboration and independence; the importance of good teachers; the unintended consequences of NCLB and Race to the Top; technology as tool for education and not an end unto itself; and of course the value of media studies and other outlets for collaborative creation.
