The relationship between how the educator conducts class time and homework is a complicated algorithm, depending on precision and reasoning. I’ve had a blog on flipped learning for quite some time, but recently I asked guest bloggers to offer a range of different voices. One voice we don’t often hear from is the student perspective so I asked my daughter, who often co-presents with me, to write a blog from her perspective.

How to Remove Facebook Guts and Gore This week, thousands of Facebook users were shocked by real-life graphic videos showing three people beheaded with a chainsaw. Graphic violence is not new to Facebook and other social media sites, but users rely on site administrators to remove this type of content as soon as it's reported. But that didn't happen. In fact, Facebook initially refused to remove the videos, telling the BBC that its approach is to "preserve people's rights to describe, depict and comment on the world in which we live."

eduClipper Is What Teachers Want Pinterest To Be My friend and fellow ed tech blogger Adam Bellow has relaunched his start-up company eduClipper.

Well after a big investment from some venture capital firms and ten months of testing and revising features eduClipper is better than ever. In fact, I think it's what teachers wish Pinterest could be. Last week Adam and I spent an hour talking about the new eduClipper in it's current state and where it is going in the future. 4 Keys To Designing A Project-Based Learning Classroom - Traditional American classrooms tend to fit a particular mold: Students face the front of the class where teachers lecture. Students take notes, finish assignments at home, and hope to memorize enough information just long enough to pass a test. Engagement and passion are often in short supply — among students and teachers. The system does not necessarily accommodate all learning styles, and even those who fair well may be missing out on other important work-life lessons, like how to creatively solve problems, stay focused, work as part of a team, and organize their thoughts in a way others will understand.
