Ignatia Webs

Every good teacher will be able to tell anyone that education and learning is really complex and that not two learners are the same.

Many schools are looking at Android tablets for various reasons at present, but the fact that there are only a few hundred tablet apps, and because experienced educators such as this one see them as only a gadget, not platform choice for schools makes those 200,000+ choices all the more pertinent. -  apple.com/iPad.

Open Discussion- Is There an Educational Laffer Curve?

mLearning World

I've been doing some research with a friend on educational spending and performance in the key areas of math, science, technology, etc. We have stumbled upon an interesting anomaly, a correlation with the less a school spends on education and higher performance in these key areas.
