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.

A Look Back: 2012’s Best Posts From This Blog

A Look Back: 2013’s Best Posts From This Blog

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

I thought readers might find it useful if I highlighted them again here:

The Best Posts & Articles Highlighting Why We Need To Be Very Careful Around Ed Tech

I hope you find them as useful as I have….

setgoals

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.

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.

Here’s an excerpt:

Pins Of The Week

pinsoftheweek

I’m fairly active on Pinterest and, in fact, have curated nearly 11,000 resources there that I haven’t shared on this blog.

I thought readers might find it useful if I began sharing a handful of my most recent “pins” each week (I’m not sure if you can see them through an RSS Reader – you might have to click through to the original post):

December’s (2016) Best Tweets – Part One

'Twitter' photo (c) 2010, West McGowan - license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/

Every month I make a few short lists highlighting my choices of the best resources I through (and learned from) Twitter, but didn’t necessarily include them in posts here on my blog.

I’ve already shared in earlier posts several new resources I found on Twitter — and where I gave credit to those from whom I learned about them. Those are not included again in post.

If you don’t use Twitter, you can also check-out all of my “tweets” on Twitter profile page.
