Education & Tech: News for Educators

  • From running contests and writing guest posts to reaching out to influencers, you can use at least 10 different tactics to grow your follower count.

  • With all the forces threatening to pull it apart, building the workforce that will deliver on the promise of public education won’t be easy. But with the stakes so high, it also can’t wait.

  • Princeton Review announced it was pulling the school's 2011 through 2014 top 25 rankings for graduate and undergraduate entrepreneurship programs.

  • As a group, schools are still mired in the mindset that technology is the innovation, not that it is a tool embedded in innovation.

  • Kids haven’t changed much over the past 150 years; our society has. So while my son still needs movement, still craves real-world learning, physical labor and ways to contribute to his family and his world, he’s expected to spend most of his time in a desk, in a classroom, with 20-some other kids his age. He’s not allowed to go outside at school when it’s too cold or wet; he’s expected to sit quietly in the library or auditorium during recess time. He’s allowed few opportunities for “real” work; today, when you hand an 8-year-old a saw or allow him to start a fire, people look at you askance.
