The Smithsonian has launched a new website that allows you to see objects in 3 dimensions. You can " how to navigate, explore and manipulate 3D collection objects." In fact you may download data sets for some of the objects and with a 3D printer create your own copy.
"The end of "do not touch": Use the Smithsonian X 3D Explorer to explore and manipulate museum objects like never before. Create and share your own scenes and print highly detailed replica of original Smithsonian collection pieces."

Does traditional testing work? Or is it time for us to rethink why we assess? This post suggest that we look at why current assessments are based on past tense and consider looking at assessments using the five items in the image below.
"The difference between assessment of learning and assessment for learning is a crucial one, in many ways indicative of an important shift in education.Traditionally, tests have told teachers and parents how a student “does,” then offers a very accessible point of data (usually percentage correct and subsequent letter grade) that is reported to parents as a performance indicator."

There are days when we ask ourselves why we teach...and this infographic shares lots of reasons for why we teach and how we impact our students...so as a visual to share, or one to look at you when you need some building up.
You know that bumper sticker that says, “If you can read this, thank a teacher”? It’s the literal truth. While most of us spend more time thinking about reality TV stars and pro athletes, teachers are among the few people who truly affect our ...

When you ask students what search engine they use the answer tends to be Google...and their tendency is to look at the first four or five results (this is from my experience with students). Check out this post for 30 innovative ways to help your learners more critical thinkers and searchers.
"As the search engine that’s become its own verb, Google’s success is difficult to frame.One of the most telling examples of their gravity in search is how few legitimate competitors they have. (Some would say they have none.)"

Something new as of last year: having taught a course that rotated all 400 9th graders through my classroom, I find that the majority of our 9th grade high school students (In inner city Springfield), when asked to do a search for a noun or noun phrase without specifying which engine to use, do a Google IMAGE search.   Still processing the implications of this - in some ways it is quite an innovative "native literacy" approach for a population with low literacy; in other ways it is quite limiting...

What do students expect from their teachers? This post lists five things and is the first of two.
Is there "a difference between a 'student' and a 'learner,' between a 'teacher' and an 'educator.' Teachers want their students to be responsible and curious. They expect their students to follow class rules and do their homework. But what about the reverse? What do students want from their teachers?"
