A fun rhyming kids game that will also improve their math skills

According to the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the math skills that students learn at a young age build a foundation for future learning endeavors and can be a good indicator of whether or not young people will be able to meet and overcome new challenges as they mature. An article by noted 'out of the box' author Malcolm Gladwell a few years ago suggests that the more advanced a child is when first entering school, the more they improve exponentially throughout their whole education. Engaging children to the concept of math early on in their life is more ...  More

The new, free way of learning for teachers, students and parents

It was interesting to read recently that one of the first things that will change as a result of the debate involving Charter and Public Schools in New York will be the opening up of resource material to everyone for free. If all goes according to plan, resource and reference material will be available for everyone to see instead of being the reference library for those who could afford it. Knowing how most governing bodies enjoy their rhetoric and tend to drag their feet when it comes to putting their money where their mouth is, we'll have to wait and see if and when that happens. ...  More

A better way of business training and learning

Its a strange thing but, according to the figures, nearly half of the people that use online Learning Management Systems (or LMS) are dissatisfied with what they get out of them. That's probably down to the fact that the people that buy those systems for their workers aren't generally the ones who actually use them. If you really want your employees to engage with learning and development and really push themselves, their peers and their organization, you need a system that they feel was built for them, their goals and their ambitions. Pathfinder turns the LMS concept on its head by ...  More

Eliminate grammatical mistakes with automatic and easy checking

Let's get this straight from the start. I'm big on good grammar. Anything that can be done to improve the writing capabilities of our students has got to be a good thing. If you are a reader, you will know that there is a big difference between the quality of writing of people like Bill Bryson, Stephen King, J.K. Rowling and John Grisham compared with lesser writing mortals like James Patterson and E.L. James. While we are not suggesting that a grammar checker will propel your prose to those heady heights, Grammar Checker Academic HD is an iOS education and language application that will ...  More

30 minute language learning with native speakers

They say that the only way you can really master another language is by conversing with native speakers in a one-on-one situation. This, however, can be an expensive and time consuming business. However, given that so many of us have webcams connected to our computers these days, it seems like a sensible idea to hone your language skills up online. Fluently takes advantage of this by offering 30 minute language learning sessions - with native speakers with a shared interest, no less - at probably the cheapest rates that you will find.   Fluentify connects language learners with real ...  More

Move into the 21st Century with this next gen lesson planner for teachers of all kinds.

The image that immediately comes to mind when thinking of planning and preparing teaching lessons is of the kindly teacher, laboriously trudging through large amounts of paper and mapping out the direction of the upcoming lesson. Oh, hang on...that was a Dickens book i was reading. Well, its either that or you can update it to the 20th Century by imagining the same scenario with its modern day equivalent - Excel spreadsheets and Word documents. Now it's time to move on from those efficient but bad old days and move into the next generation of lesson planning. Common Core is a great new ...  More

Find out of school activities easier and realize your true potential

Trying to further yourself with classes and courses can turn into a bit of a nightmare.
