User Generated Education

2019, I Resolve…

Ask a Tech Teacher

New Years–a time for rest, rejuvenation and repair. A time to assess life. Do we settle into our routine, enjoy where it’s headed, or is it time to grab our purse, iPhone, car keys, and get out of there? As a teacher-author, New Year’s Resolutions are more of a To Do list.

Not So Typical Personalized Learning Predictions for 2019

It started with scuba diving in 2003, snowboarding in 2008, swimming in 2013, and this year was surfing.
