There was a time when all their medical needs were the responsibility of the school nurse, and the teacher did not really have to know much about a child’s medical issues. However, things have changed a lot today. These types of health concerns are increasingly more common and it may be... Read More...
Clickers are also known as Audience response systems (ARS), student response systems (SRS) or personal response systems (PRS). These input devices allow students to express their views freely under the cloak of anonymity, as only the cumulative response of the class is shown on the public screen.

Instead of thinking that there’s no-where to go, or that the future looks bleak, we can look at our current situation and realize... Read More...
