  • This principal gives valuable ideas about the pros and cons of homework. Will go and check up on the research about it....

  • As an online student, there are plenty of free educational video games at your fingertips, with material targeted to every age

  • Let's face it, a school where text books, classroom book collections, and the "term paper" as the only means of student communication don't need much of a library. A small popular book collection and a word-processing lab with access to Google may actually be all that such a school needs. If the librarian and technology staff are viewed as not having knowledge that is sufficiently relevant to implementing and teaching IL/IT skills, the book room can be staffed by clerks and the techs can keep the e-mail server and student information system up and running from a small hidden office until those applications are outsourced.

    At the same time, if a school truly decides they want all their students to graduate having mastered a sophisticated set of IL/IT skills, having learned how to solve real problems creatively, and having experienced the power of global communications and collaboration, then a lack of resources - physical plant, equipment and human expertise will truly undercut this effort. Such an undertaking will require 1:1 laptop programs, well-stocked print collections, productivity labs, a fast and powerful network, good online materials, and, of course, a crackerjack professional staff to support both staff and students.

itsy bitsy spider

Last night around 3:00am, unable to sleep, my mind wandered. I really need to keep paper and pen near the bed because I had a couple of good ideas. Somehow I thought of the itsy bitsy spider song, sometimes called the teensy weensy spider. Then started to think of the water cycle, maybe because it was raining. It was then that the two things connected, the Itsy Bitsy Spider covers part of the water cycle, what it needs is other parts, so here it goes:
The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout.
Down came the rain, and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun, and dried up all the rain
And the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again.
The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout.
Up went the water making lots of clouds
Water kept rising cooling in the clouds
The itsy bitsy spider continued up the spout.

then go back to the first verse, showing that it is indeed a cycle.
Maybe when I can't sleep I can figure out more verses

What do you think? Suggestions? Tell me to forget it?

A lazy post

My post from the Lazy Bloggers Post Generator:

Abject apologies I just climbed out from under my rock and realised I have not updated this since they let me out!... You would not believe the amount of people that are totally stalking me. Whenever will they invent electricity!.

I am lost in a sea of pseudo-olde-english with setting fire to people wearing Crocs, being distracted by the shiny, just generally being a terrible burden to various lawyers I met recently, my day starts with the dawn patrol from the second I am woken by murderous Teletubbies to I am begging my kid to go to sleep or so help me God that kid will be decorating my wall, 'Duct tape still life'. I am avoiding recapture. but this damned rock is heavy.

I swear on the bones of my ancestors I will make more of an effort to blog more often until the nice men in the white coats come back. I promise! Unless of course the pool with the cocktail bar is heated!.
