Special Ed Teacher Observes Success in the Mainstream Classroom

Lauren Sabo is a multi-intensive special education teacher at Manual High School in Denver, Colorado, who has been using Learning Ally for over three years to accommodate her students. The term “multi-intensive” is used to describe students who struggle with very significant difficulties.“We use Learning Ally for students who have a specific learning disability in reading, which could be dyslexia, and also students with cognitive delays or low reading skills,” explains...

Flipped Out

So “flipped classrooms” are the latest thing. Well, almost the latest. They’ve been around for a few years now, but they’re starting to pick up steam, so, “the latest” will do for advertising purposes.I’m a bit skeptical of the idea of a flipped classroom. I say this as someone who has created a Facebook page, blog, Twitter account, online Schoology classrooms, and Remind101 account for his classes. I’ve set up accounts with Prezi, Infogram, and Vimeo, and I’ve give myself a long list of...

How to Use Technology in Education

Can Online Degree Programs Really Help Kick Start your Career Dreams? An Opinion

 Let me just come right out and say it – I believe online degree programs are a big deal. According to a 2012 survey of online learning, the number of students taking up at least one online course has surpassed 6.7 million, so there are millions of students thinking along the same lines as I am. So what makes online learning such a big deal? Or is it just all hype and no substance, something that can fizzle out soon?I am not sure there is a clear consensus on these questions yet...

Human Resource Model

All of educational reform I have come across has mostly been on advancing the industrial model of education, it rather shouldn’t be. I would compare such effort to how some people go about dieting. They are in it, but it doesn’t produce the result and that is because they are using the wrong mindset and approach.The industrial model treats the learner as a thing, a tool, an object, a robot, and many other words that depicts its insensitivity to the HUMAN. If learners are not ENGAGED in the...
