Spoiler alert!

The findings were interesting. 

The results showed that the children with dyslexia do have different patterns of literacy difficulties than children…

'Our Minds Can be Hijacked': The Tech Insiders Who Fear a Smartphone Dystopia’.

Technology has added many positive tools to help improve our lives and to improve teaching. The Teaching Café is built on the premise of the positive contributions of technology in education.

However, I have long been a proponent of all things in measured amounts. I especially have always been wary of introducing our youth to an addictive medium that removes them from the real world.

I thought this article was worth sharing:…

Would love to have your students act as expert advisors in the next Flat Classroom® Project 12-2 (September - December 2012)! Here is a link to a page that explains more about the idea -> http://fcp11-3.flatclassroomproject.org/Expert+Advisers

During that project, college students from two schools acted as expert advisors to the high school students in the project.

Prof. Vigliotti, i am too happy to be a link in your East-West chain. Dialogue between these two sides could kickstart new paradigms in teaching-learning. As you might know, personalized learning began in Ancient India through its Gurukul system. Education in the present century has come one full circle where web 2.0 is again giving a personalized learning experience. Let's start searching for new formulas and equations to take education further ahead.

Nice to have met you in the cyberspace. See you!!!!
