We hear the term 'agency' all the time in school- say our children have a voice, yes they have agency.....but do we as professionals really know what it means?

This may be a bit off topic, not a lot to do with education, but relevant to the digital age and also to the way we receive information, particularly news. Having studied journalism and public relations this is a subject I find quite interesting. I had thought for a very long time that journalism was the career path I wanted to follow, but after multiple discussions with people who had worked in the field for a long time I decided that majoring in public relations was the way of the future,…Continue

I have a hard truth to share with you. Our learning management systems are letting us down. They are not getting the job done.

The Community is vibrant and lively with over 13,000 views per year. What Ed and Diana…Continue
