  • Three Ways to Encourage Student Discovery

    1/29/14 - Duggan, Terri

    Students love technology. It’s that simple. When I present a new tool or application, the hush that falls over the room is unlike other more traditional lessons.

But, are they prepared to be effective users of ideas? Is the goal to be a great app user or do we want them to be responsible global digital citizens who contribute to the new...

    1/16/09 - Mike Rose

    As the 2008 election moves center stage, I would like us to pause and ask ourselves the big question.
