I asked students from around my school, what it means to them to be a student at an international school. Their answers were great!

I sure hope this is NOT the classroom of the future. It sounds boring, un-engaging and provides no human connections, all things that great teachers avoid. Good teachers can analyse tone of voice, body language and answer to question in order to tailor lessons to students on the fly, something that's totally missing from this scenario. This is the definition of a factory model of learning.
When a computer runs a classroom, is it more efficient? Do kids learn more? A middle school in New York is finding out.

America's schools are rocketing into the digital age. But parents are often in the dark as to how or, more importantly, why.

A very interesting article about alternative education models. Piaget would be proud!
As a growing movement of unschoolers believe, a steady diet of standardized testing and indoor inactivity is choking the creativity right out of our kids. The alternative: set 'em free.

Recommending common sense, fancy that!
New research may be changing the debate over how we think about screen time for young children.

I hate Upworthy, but this is actually a pretty good article about behaviour at school.

Interesting and provocative. But there was no mention of flying cars which could just as easily be claimed. An interesting watch all the same ;-)

I've been teaching Copyright and Creative Commons to middle school students for years now. I finally put together a 4-6 lesson unit on my wiki. Feel free to use it, adapt it and share it. Please also give me feedback on how to could be improved.

Arrive late, concierge was asleep. The whole hotel smelled like dark beer. Had someone just smashed a case in the hallway/reception? Inquired about parking, concierge asked me to drive the other guests cars out of the small parking lot so I could get my car in because he wasn't a confident driver and didn't feel like he could do it himself. Hesitated leaving my keys with him. Woke up, tried to have a shower but nothing but a brown trickle was coming out. Called front desk, water was broken, no water for a couple of hours. No shower for me. Went down to have breakfast, old dried up dark brown bread, cold sausages (that were once warm), boiled eggs, shitty coffee and cheap juice. Thanks. I would change hotels if this wasn't such a short stay. How does this place have such a high rating?

Great coffee! First time I've had a flat white with no sugar, I'm glad I was forced to make that decision. They care about coffee. Sourcing espresso from Hungary and drip coffee from Berlin, the attention to detail is high.
