A few notes:
- Please note: Because of my new book coming out in Spring of 2014, I’ve reduced my posting to three times a week: Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday.
- On Friday, my newsletter sends you my postings, especially for those of you where my blog is banned. Please do subscribe, even if it’s not the case.
- Audrey Watters premiers on The Atlantic with an article about why students hacking their iPads was a good thing. [The Atlantic]
- Patrick Honner, mathemagician extraordinaire, has been nominated for a presidential math / science award. This is cool. [Mr. Honner]
- The pope wants to make the Catholic Church less Vatican-centric, more modern. Jesuits rule. [Talking Points Memo]
- This American Life wants to hear if you’ve ever used their material in your classroom. [TAL]
- In honor of Connected Educator Month, Rafranz Davis lays out another lens about diversity within connected educator communities. [RNDesigns]
Edu paraphrased quote of the day: "All this talk about STEAM-powered schools seems so 19th century." (And yes, it was tongue-in-cheek.)
