The personal learning network for educators

This group's info/question has resonated with me in a struggle I've been experiencing all year - how to incorporate as much tech as possible without sacrificing the hands on. I think maybe I have set up a false dichotomy by asking that question. Are there certain topics that have to be done via hands on or can it all be done via a well done simulation? Just for the record, I teach 6th grade science.

Insights on this 'balance' would be appreciated!

Overcoming writers block

Writer’s block is a term you’ve probably heard often. The amazing and confusing thing about writer’s block is that people apply the term to drastically different experiences. For many, “writer’s block” means a frustrating but temporary stall in their progress. For some authors, though, the phrase looms nightmarishly large and describes a recurring and debilitating struggle to move ideas from their mind to the page.Under the pressure of deadlines, almost everyone—from students to professors to…See More
