Are You As Smart as a Fifth Grader (and more)

This is a quick note to let my readers know Innovate My School’s premiere e-magazine is now available online. It’s a collection of the best expert articles from their amazing tech ed website, Innovate My School. Topics included are:

  • handwriting and kids
  • Socratic irony in schools
  • How to keep your Facebook profile private
  • The importance of nature in school
  • Programming and the English language
  • Are you as smart as a Year 6 in Tech

By reading the magazine, you’ll get the tech ed articles you wouldn’t want to miss if only you had time to search through the offerings.

True disclosure: One of my articles is included. When you find it in the magazine, you’ll see they call ‘fifth graders’ Year 6′. That’s a Brit term, once which fits the publisher’s roots. Education best practices, though, are universal.
