IQ tests do NOT measure your ability to solve problems
This software comes close.
I am excited about this simple computer game. I found a very old version of a Japanese computer game called Sokoban and I love it. You can google it and get a copy, Its free. It measures your ability to think. Solve problems and see relationships.
I have taught in the public school system for over 15 years and I am sure IQ tests scores do NOTaccurately predict… Continue

NEW TEACHING TECHNIQUES
Someone asked me “How would I teach in today’s environment, what techniques would I employ?
I replied, “How much time do you have to listen”.
Let me share just one with you.
It is believed that there are
10% very smart students,
10% very slow learners
and every one else is in the middle.
Assuming I taught 180 days a year, I would create 180 Video DVD Lessons. Each DVD would contain… Continue

This year (2009) I learned the value of establishing a personal learning network that includes others who don’t think like me, while still sharing the same goals and sense of responsibility. By aggregating the blog/twitter/status/etc. feeds from my community into a single iGoogle or Netvibes page that also allows a single output to my own knowledge distribution portal, I become part of an intellectual community that learns and grows side-by-side with emerging technologies. It’s potent stuff… Continue

The Internet has no centralized governance in either technological implementation or policies for access and usage; each constituent network sets its own standards. Only the overreaching definitions of the two principal name spaces in the Internet, the Internet Protocol address space and the Domain Name System, are directed by a maintainer organization, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). The technical underpinning and standardization of the core protocols (IPv4 and… Continue

What Will Higher Education Look Like in the Future?
Everyone knows that our schools, high schools, colleges and even our universities are just not what they used to be. Many believe it is due to the children and their upbringing, parenting. Indeed, it is some of that and the lack of discipline in school. And yes, it is true that the school districts are generally top heavy, and the funding often doesn't get into the… Continue

How do you think?
To answer that question you need to introspect and look deep in your mind and observe. This discussion will explore human consciousness especially as it pertains to education. I was involved in neuropsychology and learning disabilities for a long time and I have found some unique relationships. It is important to understand how your students think. But before you can do that, you need to know what makes you tick. Introspect with me.
When I ask "How do you… Continue

Due to massive budget cuts, many teachers were laid off during this last global recession. In some states like California many teachers who had nine years worth of tenure were cut from the payroll. Imagine a second grade school teacher who had taught for nine years being laid off due to budget cuts; it doesn't make sense does it? Nevertheless, that's exactly what happened.
Not only that but… Continue

TEACHING TECHNIQUE---STOP THE TAPE
Early in my teaching career there was only 16mm film. The Memphis City Schools Board of Education published a film catalog listing hundreds of film available for teachers to show in their classrooms. The usual procedure for the teachers that worked in the school with me was order a film, get a student to put in on and monitor it and then go to the teacher’s lounge.
Of course no teacher does that today.
When I order a… Continue

Education of today is validated after an exam, and most exams expect students to have the ability to retain matter taught to them and reproduce the same. Is this method right? This is a question which has been asked by many educationalists and more importantly, till the time the answer is determined, we need to ensure that every student has one method through which this exam can be conquered. Studies have shown, 48 hours after a… Continue
