Editor’s note: Thanks to Nick Shackleton-Jones for sharing this piece on students’ views on teaching. Note the importance of relationships between the teacher and student. This is the most important factor affecting engagement in learning.

Editor’s note: I liked the angle on this piece – cut through the myths and you find kids need help on tablets. And then think about adults in the workplace. Wouldn’t they benefit from some help too?
Editor’s note: Google, AT&T and a host of online education organisations are forming an alliance to develop standards for career readiness.
Editor’s note: Thanks to @dsmith_tmaw for sharing this piece on how a teaching professor facilitates a discussion with students on how the group learns as a whole and how the reciprocal nature of learning might work.
