A Look Back: I Think Anybody Interested In Ed Tech Will Find These Two “Best” Lists Useful

659315-1

Next February, this blog will be celebrating its ten-year anniversary! Leading up to it, I’m re-starting a series I tried to do in the past called “A Look Back.” Each week, I’ll be re-posting a few of my favorite posts from the past ten years.

In 2013 and 2014, respectively, I originally posted two “Best” lists that I have continually updated – and referred to – since their original post date.

“Encouraging Students to Set Their Own Goals” Is Topic Of My Latest BAM! Radio Show

Encouraging Students to Set Their Own Goals is the title of my latest eight-minute BAM! Radio Show.

I’m joined by Dr. Sanée Bell, Rita Platt, and Kevin Parr. They have also all contributed written commentaries on the topic to one of my future Education Week Teacher columns.

I’m adding it to All My BAM Radio Shows – Linked With Descriptions.

    

Video: “4 Billion Years in Under 10 Minutes”

I think, though can’t be sure, that this new video might be useful in a science class. Let me know what you think of it:

 

    

Quote Of The Day: Studying & Listening To Music Don’t Mix

I haven’t been a fan of playing music in the classroom (except during more “meditative” times when students are focusing on “mindfulness”), though I’ve shared articles offering many different perspectives at The Best Research On Listening To Music When Studying.

Today, The Atlantic published a review of much of the research literature, using the headline The Best Music for Productivity? Silence.
