Well summer time has just become interesting.  Parents pick one and let your child pick one.  I don't see anything that would break the bank.   Enjoy!

Now that the kids are almost on summer break it's time to start planning those daily activities. My biggest predicament is trying to find activities that I don't feel are completely mindless (gotta keep those synapses firing, right?). What better activity to do with them than a fun science experiment? Learn all about the crystallization…

I came across this and thought it was a good sound tool page for teachers.

I challenge you!

Another book on the lack of education in our schools.   Everyone knows now that Charter schools are not the answer.  You can't put a team in place that are doing the same mistakes.  I haven't seen much in the line of books or material online that did their own homework until now.  Many including myself think the answers can be given with just the input from own your experience.  But educational failure can be caused by more than just your reasons.   This book is a guide to what was seen in schools that fail, and those that succeed.   If you have a local failing school system, reading this book could help you.  I challenge you to prove me wrong.  Before you you say, "It won't work" ask yourself if the educational  plan put in place is working now in your schools?   If not, then read the book.  This is not a referral link.  I get paid nothing.

Teachers love to share stuff with their students.  So I came across this page, and noticed each section is  for an age group.  Very nice.  No more guessing.

Mark O'Mara says we should not allow kids to be victims of systematic harassment designed to inflict emotional distress.

Yep. I've interviewed more people with hyper inflated career training debt, for programs that were either free, or close to it. One person I spoke paid 40k for an associates cert from ITT, for a basic networking program. That same program would have been 3K, from a community college. Talking about robbing dreams. By the way, I didn't hire him. The certificate didn't teach him the basics my company needed.

We help teachers/professors by creating the tools, pictures, and Apps, they need to succeed in the classroom.
Introduction

I am an Online Educational Professional Specialist.  I have taught beginners computer online for twelve years.  I know the front and back hand of what works, and what doesn't.  I have helped many to get started in the tutorial business.  Setting up forums, websites, blogs, and even checking out tutorials they have created that for some reason did not work well with their members

Now I would like to show teachers who work for schools and colleges, and those just wanting to learn how it’s done on how to inspire their students to learn.  This is a new area for teachers to embark on.  Online we have done it for years. 


Shine on Education is an one of a kind page that helps educators with the tools, pictures, APPs, and even snippets of code they need to succeed in their classroom.  

Teachers and Professors can message me with their needs in the digital world, and we do our best to help them find someone here on Google+. 

Pictures:

Pictures for digital books are hard to come by.  Many want to nickle and dime the educators to the point they are about to give up on trying to have content online for their students.  Those few pictures on the Internet are over used, not very good quality,  cartoon looking, not what they are looking for as far as subject, or the picture is just a picture, and not a object.  

We are going to change this by having a place so that Photographers, and artist can create the pictures, and objects that teachers and Professors need.  

APPS

Teachers and Professors are in need of APPS to help them out with their class needs.  I hope the creators even if they set a price on these, they will still be very very affordable.  Having free ones would be a great help as well.  

Snippets

Hopefully these will be free.  Sometimes a software only does certain things.  Some educators need for it to do more.  These will be open source hopefully. 

To Teachers, Professors, anyone that is in charge of educating anyone of any age.  This is your playground.  This is your tool.  

You will be able to use these different tools in web-pages, classrooms, digital textbooks, presentations, videos, slides, and hopefully soon on cell phones.

I hope to see this grow into a very helpful tool that educators everywhere will be proud of.  

Please circle this page, and give education a helping hand.  Share with those you feel would be interested in such a project.  

Thank you!
