Student sues for getting C+

This article tells about a student who has had a lot of help from a university, then turns around and sues over a grade of C+. She needed a B to get the program she wanted. Now I don’t know everything about this situation, but it seems that the student is simply trying to take advantage of the system. I find it hard to believe that one class would completely derail her career.

“My One Great Lesson This Year” article

This is a great article on how a teacher allowed students to choose what task they wanted to do to learn. He allowed students to pick from nine different tasks on the same topic. Six were chosen by students. (It’s too bad he doesn’t remember which weren’t chosen though.) This is a great example of 21st century learning. I think that more teachers should do this but many would find it very unsettling to give up so much control.

Over 3 years later, “deleted” Facebook photos are still online

I don’t use Facebook much but lots of people do. This article notes how long information can linger on the web. Users should understand that anything they put on Facebook and the web will remain on the web almost forever. So how do we teach our students about this? Young students often make bad choices about what they write or put on the web. It seems to me that this is a critical issue that we as educators need to address.
