    I was just wondering if you realize that in your synopsis of your spelling tutorial app that you have a spelling mistake. You note that words come to live, rather than words come to life. I thought I would let you know.
    • Ms. Forbes - It says: (especially note the last sentence)
      LearnThatWord Basic

      • LearnThat Foundation - Dear Ms. Forbes, the great folks at Edmodo already fixed this for us (it was in a part that we could not edit ourselves). Thank you so much for alerting us to this! It's been there for a year before someone told us (or even noticed?).
        Thank you and happy holidays!

      • Ms. Forbes - Wow. No problem. And to you too! :-)

    • Ms. Lee - I am very confused by how to use this app with my class. I have installed the free version as a trial to see if it is worth spending so much money on the full version, but I can't even figure out how to set it up and add my own vocabulary lists. I have watched your videos, but they are not any help. I would appreciate any help you can give me.

    • LearnThat Foundation - Hello Ms. Lee, I would love to learn more about where you get stuck. Please contact me at support@LearnThat.org and if we can't instantly help you along, maybe we can do a screen share.
      Key to using your teacher portal is to start by grouping students into classes. Once you select a class, it takes you through a very easy process to either use a ready-made list or add your own.

    Words Are The Currency of Life

    “If you want to be rich, you have to have a rich man’s vocabulary. Words can make you rich, or can make you poor.”

    Robert Kiyosaki, author of the popular book Rich Dad, Poor Dad.

    Online Learning Rules

    This meta-analysis found that, on average, students in online learning conditions performed modestly better than those receiving face-to-face instruction. It reviewed more than a thousand empirical studies of online learning from 1996 through July 2008. Remember, this includes time when online learning was much more clunky and less interactive and media-based than it is today. Winner of winners: Those approaches that blended online learning with face time. No real surprise here; simply a valuable effort supporting common sense.

    This is what I love about kids: Give them the power to set things right, and they will!

    Do you get these right?

    Most people are cognitive misers, meaning they process information to the degree that seems sufficient and then stop. It's our brain's way of saving it's resources, yet it sometimes lets us down. Did you answer these riddles correctly?

    Mistakes build your brain

    Nobody likes being wrong. But it's how your brain is built and expanded. Teaching means enabling questions and experiments and allowing mistakes as stepping stones to knowledge.

    Finally! Someone going against the grain...

    Deeper learning, 21st century skills, critical thinking are nothing but buzzwords unless students are given a knowledge foundation.

    "cna yuo raed tihs" is the start of an email that has been circulating since 2003. This blog explores why we can read this jumbled text and what it means.

    Superintendent of Public Instruction in Washington state, Randy Dorn:

    “We’ve seen the numbers: A child [that comes] from a wealthy family has about a 3,600 words vocabulary. From a working family, it’s about 1,800. And from a welfare family or home it’s about 800 words. That’s the facts. [...] We have to move from there.”

    Being an expert means LESS brain activity, not more! The key: Deliberate practice...

    Dear Edmodo teachers, what do you think of the new teacher portal? We recently also added the option to EMAIL words to students... you don't even have to log in to send words that come up during class directly to their accounts.

    Let me know what you think!

    Deliberate practice... it's key

    The notion of deliberate practice, first introduced by K. Anders Ericsson in a 1993Psychological Review article, went far beyond the simple idea of hard work.

    The key is continual improvement.
