    A visual exploration of how the place of physical education at the university has changed over the past two hundred years. What does taking the bird's eye view allow us to see? Is anything to be gained by treating a football stadium as the subject of poetry?  Let me know what you think. (Tip of the hat to Wallace Stevens for the form.)

Spelling & Vocabulary Website: SpellingCity - 67 views

  • has:
    - Over 42,000 spelling words and ten learning games!
    - A REAL person who says each word and sentence.
    - Free home pages for teachers and parents to save lists.
    - How To Videos to explain to teachers and parents how to use
    - A free forum and newsletter with more vocabulary and spelling resources!
    - Ten spelling and vocabulary games to play online or to print.
    - Free printables for handwriting practice with your saved lists.
    - A Resources Section which highlights features and existing lists for Dolch words, compound words, sound-alikes (their, there, they're), contractions, possessives, and more.

    After taking the online spelling test, students can print out a report, retake the entire test, or get tested only on spelling words that they got wrong the first time.

    TeachMe spells and displays the word in ways that stimulate memory for visual and verbal learners.

    Printable Games include WordSearch, UnScramble, WhichWord?, Sentence UnScramble and MissingLetter.

    Printable Handwriting Worksheets for combined spelling and handwriting practice can be created from any saved list (this feature only works if the list is saved). Choices includes three sizes of lines, capitals or small letters, script or cursive, and with directional arrows on or off. How cool is that?
    All you have to do is type in the list of words and bam! at least 10 games are generated for the students! It also teaches and tests the students on the words. You can save the lists as a teacher and have students search for your lists or you can have students input their own lists without saving them.
    A superb resource where teachers can sign in and input spelling lists for pupils to learn by playing games. Give pupils the link and they don't need to sign in to use it. Site only recognises US spelling when generating example sentences, but you can input your own easily. Free option should be enough for most users, but 'paid for' option is available.

Thrun leaving Stanford for online startup - Technology & science - Innovation - - 0 views

  • Online education can also leverage the "flipped classroom" technique used by a few innovative educators, Thrun said. Students watch lectures on their own so that teachers can spend their time and energy helping students solve problems.

    Many of his online students have written to share their stories with Thrun. One student told of finishing online assignments in between mortar and rocket attacks in Afghanistan. Another described herself as a single mother of two young children who suffered from both job and family worries.

    "I took the midterm this weekend, mostly while holding a teething infant," said the anonymous mother. "None of my other issues have gone away. But I feel more determined than ever to see this through … for myself."
