Recommended Resources:


As you may know, I love to share resources that inspire, that educate, that may help improve the lives of our readers... and possibly the people, places and environment around them - thereby making the world a little better one post at a time. ...well, I can hope. lol

"Education scientist Sugata Mitra tackles one of the greatest problems of education — the best teachers and schools don't exist where they're needed most.
