7 Lessons for Teachers from Dumbledore One of my favorite times of the day is when I settle in with my two young daughters for read-aloud time. For several years, we have been working our way through the Harry Potter series. I had read them all before, but it has been a delight to read them again with my girls, using as many voices as possible, and seeing the incredible story through their eyes. It has also shared many secrets about teaching and living with me on this second reading, especially when it comes to Dumbledore. The way he interacts with Harry, fellow teachers, muggles, and various magical creatures has lessons for all of us -- especially teachers and parents.
Apps That Rise to the Top: Tested and Approved By Teachers Michelle Luhtala/Edshelf With the thousands of educational apps vying for the attention of busy teachers, it can be hard to sift for the gold. Michelle Luhtala, a savvy librarian from New Canaan High School in Connecticut has crowd-sourced the best, most extensive list of apps voted on by educators around the country. “I wanted to make sure we had some flexibility because there’s no one app that’s better than all the others,” Luhtala said. Some apps are best for younger students, others are more complicated, better suited for high school students. Many apps do one thing really well, but aren’t great at everything.
Technology Initiative Why Intel® Education Created the K-12 Blueprint In hopes of preparing all students—regardless of socioeconomic status—for the modern workforce through digital inclusion, Intel hosted a small conference in 2000, bringing together a group of roughly 30 leaders in the education eco system for a series of collaborative, face-to-face meetings. The participants worked together to create the founding document and principles behind the K-12 Blueprint. The K-12 Blueprint model was based on these conversations and brainstorming sessions—all ideas recorded and all minutes transcribed—with Intel going back to the group to get additional snippets or clarification points. The discussion focused on the common areas necessary for successful implementation of digital curriculum. Intel’s K-12 Blueprint website has grown since its initial inception, with a dedicated team responsible for updating the site with current education-technology news and downloadable tools.
Fixing the error: “OneNote needs a password to sync this notebook. Click here to enter your password.” // February 5th, 2014 // Technology, Tutorial I have found Microsoft OneNote to be one of the most effective tools for note-taking while doing 1st year medical science courses. It allows me to easily search old lectures on the fly, and even create links between information so that I am constantly reinforcing my understanding of past and present material. But even more importantly, it allows me to sync across computers, my phone, and even online so I can read my notes when I am away from home. Being that I own a Macbook Pro, and Microsoft has yet to develop OneNote for OS X (Apple’s proprietary operating system), I have to run Microsoft Office in a virtual environment (VMWare / Parallels) that has Windows installed.

SelfControl is an OS X application which blocks access to incoming and/or outgoing mail servers and websites for a predetermined period of time. For example, you could block access to your email, facebook, and twitter for 90 minutes, but still have access to the rest of the web. Once started, it can not be undone by the application, by deleting the application, or by restarting the computer – you must wait for the timer to run out. Created while at Eyebeam Center for Art and Technology. Thanks to Charlie Stigler for developing the application.
