Flipping Tip: Save a Tree - Use PDFs

Flipping Tip: Use Podcasts to Manage Absences

Catch a student doing something right today!

Motivation is a key factor and you can make a huge impact on it by catching a student doing something right and praising them for it. Now let's take it one small step further.

NBC Politics Informs


"The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives." ~ Robert Maynard Hutchings

The quality of a democracy depends on an informed citizenry. I'm sure someone more significant than I said that but I'm saying it now.

It is therefore imperative for students to become wise consumers of the news. NBC recognizes this and responds by offering a host of free new apps for mobiles devices.

edmodo mobile


Edmodo mobile puts a secure social network for teachers and students on your iPhone!

Edmodo is not an open social networking site where kids hang out and meet strangers. No.

Its a social networking site where they go to connect with their teachers and classmates. Its a place where they study, watch educational videos, and work on their assignments under the care of their teachers.

This is the kind of social network you want them to belong to!

TuneIn Radio is a Hit!


Radio is Alive & Well!


I love listening to the radio while I'm bicycling, walking, mowing, or just relaxing in the backyard but finding a small portable radio you can carry in a pocket is a challenge.
