Hello, I work as an IT Tech for a school department in Maine. One of my main responsibilities is assisting the teachers with methods to get more out of Google for Education. I’ve started creating a video series on the topics that I cover with my teachers and I welcome you to check it out. I am putting out new videos every week.

This is part of a series of blogs on the issue of Online Safety & Special Educational Needs.
Online Safety is essential. This is not up for argument. But what are the risks for children with special educational needs?

While developing a course for school teachers, I’ve had several discussions with teachers to find out why some of them are reluctant to teach online. For this article, I’ve extracted some of the most commonly mentioned criticisms. I would like to respond to these claims with my own opinions. These answers are, therefore, subjective, but …

Standardized testing wasn't ever meant to be a stress test for students and IT pros alike.
No one wants to add to students' stress by disrupting standardized online testing with network outages.

This may be a bit off topic, but it's for a good cause. If you are a recent or upcoming high school/college graduate, a teacher, or a parent please respond. Be sure to include the question number next to your response, along with what demographic from which you are writing your response.

Upcoming Grads:

1. What are some life skills that you have been struggling with learning/doing (i.e. Resume building, taxes, etc.)?

Everyone:
2. Who do you think is responsible for teaching these life skills?
3. How do you learn best (i.e. Auditory, Visual, etc)?
4. Who have you learned life skills from in the past?

For teachers specifically:

1a. What would you do if you could incorporate these life skills into your curriculum?

For Parents:

1b. What are some life skills that you learned, and how did you learn it?
2b. For these life skills, how would you have wished you had learned them?

Recent Grads:

1c. What are some life skills that you haven't learned yet?

App "3D molecules edit & test".

Royal Society of Chemistry :"Eight great apps for chemistry teachers!"
Posted by: David Sait
"There are lots of chemistry apps out there, but which ones are actually worth installing?
We asked teachers for their recommendations, what they use in the classroom and which apps they recommend to students.
Here's what they suggested, with some favourites of our own."
4. 3D molecules edit & test It's designed for students to draw structures, view them as 3D models, visualise atomic orbitals and see electronic effects.
There's also a test mode that's useful for self-assessment – students construct inorganic and organic compounds, and hints are available if they get stuck.

Things to keep in mind when creating online courses. Not all of these factors for knowledge retention in eLearning are obvious.
 
Knowledge retention has always been a challenge but with the dawn of eLearning, the subject has gained significant limelight. Deep studies have been conducted over the years to help students learn better by enhancing the teaching methodologies and overall
