The Innovative Educator’s Top Ten This Week

Here’s the roundup of what's been popular on The Innovative Educator blog this week. Below you’ll see my top weekly posts along with the number of pageviews in the past 7 days.

This week the big winner was Do You Have the Fluency of a Digital Native? Take this Test. Fun piece to write and there was a lot of heated Twitter conversations as a result.  In particular with @datadiva who also commented on the post.  She didn’t like the idea of “losing your accent” being a good thing.  After much back and forth, she suggested using the term “fluency” which I did in the updated version of this post.  Check it out and share your thoughts :-)

In the top three was Is your school like a prison? In this piece, I share many of the disturbing similarities between schools and prisons and give readers a chance to weigh in on where their school stands. Coming in at #2, my ADHD remains in the top since it's been written.  The pharma companies spend millions to get kids hooked.  Find out why doctors, parents, and educators are clamoring to get you to do more research before drugging your children. The ten no nos for using an IWBs also finds it's way to the top again. Hope to have those no nos become less and less and more and more people read this post.  

I had a series of posts that sparked a lively debate.  It started with Some Good Reasons Not to Go to School.  The comments sparked a follow up post called Some good reasons to go to school and those comments resulted in Vickie’s post What If They Choose School? There are more than 50 comments and counting about the pros and cons of schools and home education.  The posts are interesting and perhaps the comments even more so.  

There’s several other interesting posts as well. I hope there's something here that looks of interest to you.  If it does, check it out. If you’re so inspired leave a comment.
