Obsessed with Fantasy Football – Education Article

By Scott Habeeb Salem High School I have to confess something: I care way too much about Fantasy Football.

Plant Today, Collect Tomorrow – USAPlant Today, Collect Tomorrow – Education Article

Up until a couple of years ago, I lived a rather comfortable life. I was enrolled in the engineering program at one of the best universities in Colombia.

16 Questions To Help Students Brainstorm Project-Based Learning – Education Article

16 Questions To Help Students Brainstorm Project-Based Learning by Terry Heick We’ve written about inquiry-based learning in the past, as well as its mother project-based learning, and its more complex cousin self-directed learning. So it made sense to take a look at challenge-based learning–the process of anchoring the learning process through problems–usually local, authentic, and personal to the student. This is a kind of place-based education that takes a project-based approach that begins and ends with the student and their respective and self-examined citizenships.…

Social Media Rules to Follow as a Teacher – Education Article

Social media is a slippery slope to navigate when you are involved in education. You may believe what you post on social media is completely harmless so even if you have “friended” parents and past students, then it won’t be a big deal. However, if I have learned anything in today’s society, it is this: Anybody can be offended by anything nowadays. Social media keyboard warriors make it a point to find something wrong with everything. Because of this, here…

Confessions of a Community College Dean – Education Article

“At the end of the day, it’s a business.” As longtime readers know, I used to work at a DeVry campus.  It was my first full-time job out of grad school. “Virtuous” non-profits were only hiring adjuncts at that point, but DeVry was hiring full-timers. I couldn’t eat prestige, so I took the gig. I started as faculty, teaching 45 credits per year. After a few years of that, I moved into administration, eventually becoming the Dean of General Education…

What is the point of higher education if it doesn’t make people happy? | Jonathan Wolff | Education

In The Methods of Ethics, a book read only by philosophers with an overdeveloped sense of duty, the late Victorian utilitarian moralist Henry Sidgwick argued that other philosophers of his day were wrong to believe that human beings act only for the sake of their own happiness or pleasure. There is a second spring of human action, he argues: the pursuit of excellence. A poet, a philosopher, or a sportsperson working obsessively may hope to be happy, but, more likely,…

A Project-Based Learning Activity That Can Work in Any Classroom – A.J. JULIANI – Education Article

In our last post, we dove into a three-step system to get students to do the talking. Getting them to open up and do the majority of talking (and learning) is not as easy as some make it out to be. In fact, for me, it was incredibly difficult. The three-step system scaffolded a way for students to take on more and more of the discussion responsibilities until they were ready to take over. Here are the three steps…
