Teaching Thoughts

One of the more interesting education books I have read recently is "The Smartest Kids in the World."  Above is a very interesting interview "excerpt" where she mostly says Finland closed down its education schools and then only opened them again in the prestigious universities.  She even notes that technology is often missing in Finland and Korea (although I argue in my book that it is being used improperly as effectively a way to just digitize paper).

But what you might want to do is to look at the author, Amanda Ripley's blog which has a lot of stimulating articles.  You can also follow her on Twitter.  Food for thought to improve our craft.

Thank you! It is really food for thoughts and I am happy that I found these sources even before I started my career. It helps to find ideas and set priorities in a right way. Maybe we can save some time applying for Help On Essay and thesis online and get acquainted with people who know how to bring up healthy personality. As I am still a student, I know about all disadvantages of modern system. I am not sure if it is possible to change something in your classroom but I will try.
