The Real Reason Girls Don't Like to Code

Lisa Abeyta | November 26, 2014 | Technology
I don't believe that girls are turned off by STEM because it's hard or simply because girls think they're bad at math. Girls aren't wimps or wilting flowers; they don't shrink from challenges just because something isn't a strength. We, as a culture, just aren't doing a very good job of selling tech to girls.

Social Media Should Be A Part Of The Elementary School Curriculum

Jay Donaldson | November 26, 2014 | Canada British Columbia
Social media has certainly become a part of all our lives. It is the communication tool that children have been brought up with, but it is still illegal for a child under the age of 13 to have a social media page. This is a shame when you consider the learning opportunities that social media offers.

A Letter to Educators in Response to the St. Louis County Grand Jury Decision

Mark Otto | November 25, 2014 | Education
There is no script for what to do with our students in situations like these, but I do believe that more than anything else, they need to feel loved and cared for. I ask that, regardless of how you are feeling, we all work hard to maintain safe spaces in our school and show each of our students how much we love them and care for them and that we want to keep them safe.

A Learning Problem Is Not an Intelligence Problem

Is Nicholas Ferroni Really America's Sexiest Teacher?

Peter Greene | November 24, 2014 | Education

Lydia Dobyns | November 25, 2014 | Education
Giving back helps students expand their awareness of social problems and the role civic action plays in solving issues. We want students to experience taking action as part of their learning so they can begin to decide what roles they will play in their own communities.
