Technology + mentoring helps failing schools achieve - 50 views

  • Amid growing pressure on public school districts to improve performance of chronically struggling schools, two nationally recognized education organizations have formed a consortium to offer a research-based approach for transforming  these schools into successful learning environments without requiring mass dismissals of staff, school closures or turnover to charters or outside management organizations.
  • The new initiative, called SetPoint, pairs classroom technology with intensive coaching to build capacity for sustained change within the local district.
  • With the SetPoint process, most staff members remain in their positions and receive intensive coaching and modeling in best instructional practices from experienced principals and school leaders.

Taking WordPress Widgets To The Next Level - 56 views

  • There are initially two options to choose from. Either displaying a widget on selected or displaying a widget on every page except selected
  • Ok, now we need an example. Lets say I want to display the default recent comments widget only on the homepage since that is the only place where it makes sense to display it. I would simply add the recent comments widget to the sidebar, click the edit link, select “Display Only On Selected“, check mark the Homepage box and then, click done. The recent comments will now only show up on the homepage.
