10 Steps to Developing an Online Course: Walter Sinnott-Armstrong
Literacy Literacy is the ability to make sense of something, often generalized as the ability to read and write. In many ways, reading is reading, media is media, but in the same way a play places unique comprehension demands on a reader compared to a poem or a letter, so do digital media compared to classic media forms.

Balancing Chemical Equations Balancing Chemical Equations A trike body attaches to 3 wheels. Aluminum attaches to 3 chlorine atoms. Because of this similarity, the equation for making aluminum chloride has the same issues. We start with an unbalanced (skeleton) chemical equation. Al + Cl2 -> AlCl3 (short 1 chlorine at start) Al + 2Cl2 -> AlCl3 (ends up with extra chlorine) 2Al + 2Cl2 -> 2AlCl3 (short 2 chlorines at start) 2Al + 3Cl2 -> 2AlCl3 (all atoms match)

Education technology has many supporters in its movement to alter traditional teaching methods. This list of the top 50 education technology blogs includes writers, technicians and social media experts…but they all are teachers. The “movers” are teachers who facilitate learning among other teachers and in the classroom, the “shakers” teach new philosophies and innovations, and the folks “on the ground” offer news, tools and methods of using those tools in the classroom. This list is divided into those three categories, and each link within those categories is listed alphabetically. The links lead straight to the recently updated blogs, and the descriptions supply information about that blogger’s achievements, including careers and jobs.
