Whatever happened to the paperless society?


The personal computer was supposed to eliminate the use of paper for such things as assignments and syllabi but we use 50% more paper today than we did in 1980. Each American consumes about six trees per year (The Economist online).

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.

Why not use your iPhone and iMovie to capture your praise and his/her pride in a job well done. A short videoclip is all you need. 

Let's say a child has done a nice job on a painting. When you post it on the wall have your student stand beside it and videotape their expression as you offer a few words of praise.
