Feb. 10 is Safer Internet Day
"Part of good digital citizenship is knowing what to share, where to share and using your privacy settings appropriately.
There is nothing more disturbing than watching people over-expose themselves online. Whether they are letting people know they are vacationing (which is an alert for offline criminals) or parents that feel the need to overshare their child’s pictures with people that are not really their friends or they barely know."

"Movement is a powerful teaching tool, and when we as teachers thoughtfully incorporate physical elements into instruction, we elevate the learning experience." Aleta Margolis
Blog post on the Washington Post by Valerie Strauss
"Last July I published a post titled “Why so many kids can’t sit still in school today.” It hit a nerve and became one of the most-read pieces on this blog last year, with readers continuing to click on it, along with related posts, such as “The right — and surprisingly wrong — ways to get kids to sit still in class” and “A therapist goes to middle school and tries to sit still. She can’t. Neither can the kids.”
Here is a new post on the same subject, by Aleta Margolis, founder and executive director of the Center for Inspired Teaching, a D.C.-based nonprofit organization that works with teachers, principals, and entire school faculties to foster the best teaching practices. Margolis writes about how teachers incorporate movement into lessons to make it part of learning, not just a break from it."
