RE@L Blog's: "EdTech Thought for the Week!"

RE@L logo_Corp_TM_New Tag_8-15-17_CMYKFrom time to time, Real Experiences at Life will post a “EdTech Thought for the Week.” Just a short phrase or sentence or two on relevant K12 EdTech topics, from STEM (popular and current) back to Archimedes (ancient and classic). Sometimes even a little productive humor will show up on our site.


We hope you enjoy these occasional terse and pithy quips. We hope it helps us all think more deeply and productively on how how EdTech helps more learners learn more. And more teachers teach more effectively.

Harking all the way back to our Founders, they already understood what learning required of learners:


Grades of letters and numbers just can’t adequately describe what learners know.. Let the students show us that they know through Project Based Learning! A checklist and a rubric are all teachers and students need. if it’s observable and measurable, performance tells it all.

Maybe YOURS will be posted here next time!
