In the past week, I’ve read several studies that are scary to me… the scary truth about what’s hurting our kids. We all know that what our kids hear becomes their inner voice, but it’s hard to control what they hear from others, isn’t it?

CNN recently interviewed Dr Jean Twenge, author of iGen and her interview really worried me – because I saw the truth that I would be facing in just a few short years. Dr. Twenge started doing research 25 years ago on generational differences, but when 2011 -2012 hit, she saw something that would scared her to the core. This is the year when those having iPhones went over the 50% mark.

The results of that should scare all of us. This was the year that more kids started to say that they felt “sad, hopeless, useless… that they couldn’t do anything right (depression).” They aren’t dating as much. More likely to feel lonely.

EdTech Trends: Meme Lesson Ideas

One way to keep students interested is to make connections to the real world. A meme is a popular way for people of all ages to send a message that demonstrates a nuanced understanding of a particular event.

issues final rule on safety and effectiveness of antibacterial soaps

Food and Drug Administration today issued a final rule establishing that over-the-counter (OTC) consumer antiseptic wash products containing certain active ingredients can no longer be marketed.
