Keeping Up Really is Hard to Do

Thirsting for news about teaching, learning, and education? The good news is there is a torrent of information out there about these subjects. The bad news: who can keep up with it? It’s not hard to find information to help boost your teaching skills, but it’s nearly impossible to find the time to wade through it. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a quick way to skim through some items of interest, maybe have a fun read about some of the crazy things that go on in the classroom … filter my info, please?

Well, we’re here to help you out. This section of our site is focused on sifting through current events … items in the news that might matter to you. You’ll find links below to: 10 our blog, 2) a “curated” grouping of news items associated with teaching, learning, knowledge, cognition, and educational technology, and 3) our Twitter feed. It may not be all the news fit to be presented, but it is our attempt to keep you informed on a manageable basis.

So, have fun, stay informed, and maybe get inspired.

Cog’s Blog

Our blog is purely ego-driven. It focuses on items that are interesting to us at any given time. Knowledge, teaching, cognition … whatever sparks our fancy. Partly irreverent, a bit pretentious at times. But hopefully, always interesting and helpful to you. Comments and suggestions are welcome; we always like to hear from you.

In the news

It seems there is always news in the world of education; too much, actually, to keep up with. You’ll find links to current news items, articles, videos, and blogs that touch on education. Each entry is dated and hi-lited by a relevant quote from the relevant medium. Topical areas include teaching, learning, cognition, and educational technology.

Twittering

Twitter is quite a unique medium. Rather than go in-depth, Twitter allows one to kind of graze through the day’s events, and to jump in and add to the cacophony of information; tweet your mouth off, so to speak (or tweet, I guess). This page summarizes our most recent 25 tweets, a rapid-fire dose of links, barbs, and sometimes ill-advised comments.


Here are a few ways to search for items of interest:

Click the "Search page" tab to access our site-wide search function.

Click the "Glossary items" tab to access the filter/search function on our glossary page.

Click the "Good books" tab to access the filter/search function in our book bin.
