I saw this courtesy of Colum McAndrew. Oh, I really hope that more educators in the US get this message, because this is the message that we need to give our kids. My son is learning different, so he doesn’t usually do well in standardized tests, even though certain allowances are made (like extra time, etc.) so he can try to complete them. He’s actually a rather bright boy, and he has rather low self-esteem, so I’m constantly trying to remind him that he’s more than a test (just like adults are more than their resumes). I, too, didn’t do well in standardized tests as a kid, yet I did well enough in school. (Never took the GRE for grad school, yet had a 4.0 GPA, which should say something!)
US education system–please wake up, and read this, and learn from it! We need to bring up kids who are more confident in whatever skills they have, even if they are not measurable or conventional.

YES! This is something I’ve been saying all along. If not big programming languages, at least the basics of HTML so that they understand how websites are built and understand content strategy in relation to digital output, along with all that big data and analytics stuff. Education systems–please listen!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything "hardcore" for e-learning, but I saw this on Learning Anyway’s Facebook page, and thought it was definitely worth sharing. I don’t know how long this site has been up, but it looks fantastic! Check it out for more information.
Though it’s probably the most low-key reality show on television, HGTV’s House Hunters has uncovered an overwhelming, and heretofore unknown, passion lurking deep in the American psyche. The show f…
I’m really loving this article by Larry Kunz! I’m one of those regular viewers of House Hunters myself, and as a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) homeowner who has learned to see past needing granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances, I understand his analogy very well. (In fact, I just did a kitchen renovation almost a year ago, and we went with quartz/silestone instead of granite, and I’ve been upgrading appliances one by one to stainless over the course of seven years, so they are all now stainless.) There are needs, and there are wants, and Larry does a really nice job getting tech writers to think about how to differenciate between those things in our content. This is content strategy at its most basic level. Read this NOW!
