Late July Quick Hit

Sure I am on vacation, like the rest of you. I hope you are enjoying your summer surrounded by loved ones and getting your energy and creative juices ready for the new school year. Where I am, there is very little internet connection (and that is so awesome) but I have been able to log on late at night when there are fewer active users. Just wanted to take a moment to share two related sites with you all. The first is an article at Scientific American, one of my favorite sites and magazines, discussing the expanded role of data in our schools, “Scientists Bring New Rigor to Education Research“. In the article, the writer, Barbara Kantrowitz, mentions the What Works Clearinghouse site which is where all of this new data is being collected and categorized for all of us interested in education. I must admit that while I have heard of the site before, I have not delved into the contents yet, and I have added a link to the site on my blogroll. You will find it listed at “Q” just below the “Getty Images” site (another place I have yet to really explore). So much to see and discover online, that even with help I sometimes find it overwhelming. Luckily, summer vacation is only half over, so we have plenty of time to meander. Hope you find something interesting in your journeys. Good luck and thank you for stopping by.
