Teacher + Scholar

If you are a regular to Blog Education & Tech, you shall remember that I am a blogger and I'd written a post about education almost everyday since 2003. Education & Tech provides you with education news, expert tech advice, classroom management ideas, and social media tools for educators, administrators, parents and k-12 students.

Welcome Twitterer! Why not like our site for more updates?

Writing is different than posting !

Well, I think it all depends of the audience. I cannot write the posts you are used to see in our blog for, let's say a Physics Summit. I do have to write if I have to make a particular presentation about Finite Math or explain in detail how to install a determined script in your theme that way it does not intefere with the other already working in your blog or page.

Blog Bloke has brought to our attention the Jacob Nielsen writings dicotomy:

"... It doesn’t really matter what name you want to call it or how many words your post article post is (to a point of course). Just make sure that your content is up to snuff without any of the fluff. And if you are going to link bait with catchy titles like Copyblogger will tell you (or if you use SEO tricks), please make certain that your readers won’t be disappointed when they click on your link."



It sounds the same as the dilemma: are bloggers really journalists? Now, Nielsen wants to look down our fellas bloggers, just because they are not going to publish in the Science Magazine! I am not a writer. Absolutely. But nobody can say for sure that TonNet can't write. That's a very basic skill we all learned when we were about 7 - 8 years old and keep practicing since then. Voilá!

Update:
Jeff Atwood has his very own saying about this matter.

Feedburner integrates to Blogger

As you all know, Feedburner now is owned by Google. This made happy all Blogspot/Blogger users. Why? very simple:If you want detailed stats on who is reading your Blogger blog, it’s now easy to do. The integration also works with blogger blogs not hosted on the Blogspot domain. (Sumesh, still waiting for the script!)

Now that everyone is trying to make money throughout Social Networks, such integration came just handy.

Feedburner’s instructions: "log into your Blogger account, select Settings | Site Feed, enter your FeedBurner feed address and click 'Save Settings'."

Tired of doing the same thing everyday?

Jay White has written a list of 12 interesting ways to jumpstart your daily life:

Pownce Review: Ramani and his Adobe Captivate

As all you know Pownce just came and is playing hard with Twitter. That only disgusting thing about it is that my gmail account is getting full with Pownce notifications. I still don't know how to shut notifications down. But what I love is the chances to interchange files. If you still don't have an account just drop me an email or leave a comment asking for an invitation and I'll gladly spare some of those left.

Ramani is the person who designed the theme for Education & Tech. Now you can get it for your blog for free (he's revamping the new NEO). Thanks Ramani. Don't get to Hackosphere without checking first his review of Pownce using Adobe Captivate.

Succesfull Blogging: Dirty Job!

"If you’ve got a friend who thinks they can make money with their blog, get them to read this piece. Like all people who rise to the top of their profession, it demonstrates a simple truth: good bloggers work like dogs. You better believe it! Making a blog successful and making people want to come back for more everyday is more than a full time job that not only needs dedication but it needs a certain amount of eccentricity and obsessive devotion."

So, don't think of the 7 Wonders when you want to reach the top of pinacle and be an authority in the blogosphere!

iPhone: Josh Quittner doesn't like it anymore

This guys has decided to return his iPhone and many Mac fonds cry and don't understand why? However, he says iPhone will have to wait until its primetime. Its'n not time yet and list the reason why he's taking advantage of his 14 days policy return:

1. Verizon's coverage is far better.
2. My Treo's battery lasts longer and won't cost me a bundle and three days to replace.
3. The iPhone keyboard needs improvement.
4. Without Flash, too much of the Web is off limits.
5. The WiFi connectivity was flaky and not as fast as I had hoped.
6. It's too expensive—both the device, and the monthly service.

Hold on! Don't leave yet without reading Jonh Gruber's refutations, point by point!
