Congratulations to my friend Eric Marcos for being featured in the Harvard Graduate School of Education "Everyday Heroes" column. Eric's Mathtrain.tv project is amazing and an excellent use of digital storytelling in Math. He is a fellow Google Certified Teacher and I'm so proud of him! Way to go Eric!
Fascinating response from Chris Lehman to a Dan Meyer who asks him a question about what he should do when the test scores of his students don't measure up? In true Practical Theory style, Chris gives a whiz of an answer.
Just turned up this very nice post by Doug Belshaw about Acceptable Use Policies that Include Cell phones - this one and the one he wrote before it are very nice talking points for your committe who looks at AUP's.
OH, my heart goes out to Brian Crosby. To work so hard and have 10 laptops stolen! But amazingly enough, Brian even turns this into a learning experience. Brian is such a great teacher and a great person. These are very real challenges of any laptop program with some schools having more problems than others.
