Online learning is also known as e-Learning, although that is somewhat of an ambiguous term since just about all learning has some level of "e" in it. In addition, we use technology to enhance our work and we don't call it "e-work".

Vanessa Keenan, Early Years 2 Teacher and Grade Level Leader, A Taaleem School, UAE In this article you will learn how to use the Responsive Classroom practice of morning meetings in the primary years programme class.

Happiness report: Finland is world's 'happiest country' - UN
Image copyright Reuters This year's happiest place on Earth is Finland, according to an annual UN report - toppling Norway from the top spot. The World Happiness Report measures "subjective well-being" - how happy people feel they are, and why. Nordic countries regularly appear in the top five, while war-hit countries and a number in sub-Saharan Africa regularly appear in the bottom five.

Sam’s attitude impressed me – those with a genuine desire to learn go places quickly.

Socioeconomic disadvantage and its impact on where we live and work (and how we get between the two), has enormous implications for health and well-being. But the picture is not as clear cut as many people assume. The built environment’s influence on health starts in the home – the place fulfilling a raft of basic physical, social and emotional needs. People with reasonable, reliable incomes are in a better position to afford well-designed and constructed accommodation that meets these requirements.
