good luck telling students (kids or adults) that ;) many insist they can despite human perceptions are not always accurate (and we make fun of dogs got no sense of time) #learning
We all do it, and some see it as a badge of honour, but if we think multitasking makes us more productive then we need to think again.

this would be uproar if in US.

Liaoning Daily (undercover? or it is OK from an official paper?) went to about 100 lectures in 20+ highered covering 5 cities over half a month, afterwards printed an open letter to universities instructors that they should not criticize China.

(in chinese. the only english translated page i can found so far is not very good)

【明報專訊】中共遼寧省委機關報《遼寧日報》前日在頭版推介並在內版整版刊發一封致全國大學老師的公開信〈老師,請不要這樣講中國〉。稱該報用了半個月的時間,到瀋陽、北京、上海、武漢、廣州等5個城市的20多所高校,聽了近百堂專業課,指大學教師「呲必(睚眥必報)中國」的現象十分嚴重,屬於國信辦的「國平」昨日在中青網評論稱,這從一個側面讓人看到了網絡上、社會上誣衊辱罵祖國等負面情緒的一個源頭。

with all the snow changes, may need this from blended and personalized learning experiment ;) #edtech

" ... The entrance to the math class at David A. Boody looks a bit like a scene at an airport terminal. Three giant screens display daily schedule updates for all students and teachers. ..."
NEW YORK—Teacher John Garuccio wrote a multiplication problem on a digital whiteboard in a corner of an unusually large classroom at David A. Boody Intermediate School in Brooklyn. About 150 sixth-graders are in this math class—yes, 150—but Garuccio’s task was to help just 20 of them, with a lesson tailored...

when youtube content ID goes bad ... 
YouTube's automated takedown tool is known for its flaws, but this week it crossed a line by attacking a purring cat. According to YouTube's Content-ID system both EMI Publishing and PRS own the rights to a 12 second purring loop. The cat in question, Phantom, has filed a dispute and hopes to reclaim his rights.

shouldn't we have that for education materials too? powerpoint slides, PDF documents, youtube videos, LMS announcements etc. to see what students look at (or not) #edtech
When scanning a menu, are you justifying that Dame Blanche sundae in your mind rather than actually choosing a dessert? Pizza Hut wants to help you skip

"... Jetting off to Budapest, Paris and Rome ..."
some thing you learned really quick. never ask the class where you went during summer/ winter / spring break or what your parents or siblings do. it got awkward very quick.

inexperience instructor may say innocent things like "... your dad and mom can ..." and forgot some students' may not even be able to read or write and make things uncomfortable.

" ... wear the preppy Lilly Pulitzer brand. Arrington remembers her reaction when she discovered what an average Lilly Pulitzer piece might cost. ..."

have and have not are everywhere - from classroom - ones with $2900 macbook pro, $799 iPad, $399 iPhone vs ones only have a "dumb" phone, to parking lots
A scholarship may get high-achieving, low income students into the Ivies, but life at these schools can be tough when you’re an economic fish out of water
