Mission To Learn

Jeff Cobb is a steadfast advocate of lifelong learning; he is more than just a fan, though, he is practicing what he preaches and delivering the resources to help others do the same.

Mission To Learn – Why You Should Go

The Mission to Learn started with this blog, but has since grown into an even wider set of resources. Today, in addition to the blog, Jeff Cobb and MTL maintain a lifelong learning newsletter as well as podcasts and interviews with interesting, informative people working to expand educational opportunities; and of course, all of these resources lead to even more resources for continued learning.

What Mission to Learn works to do is open the doors to continued learning through the convenience and access of the Internet. It is not actually very heavily focused on learning and education in the traditional sense; rather, it is a library of resources that recognizes learning for what it really is—an essential life function that tends to become formalized and institutionalized, but that does not need to be. This site is a celebration and delivery system for learning in all its many forms and formats, putting the majority of its effort into helping people locate the free and low-cost, but more importantly, accessible and effective tools for lifelong learning.

On the Mission:

Mission to Learn is a destination for lifelong learners. It is for people who want to be more successful in finding and benefiting from online learning experiences.

It is important to say up front that we not necessarily focus on learning in a traditional sense. Learning is not just about courses, or schools, or teachers… Learning happens everywhere, all the time, and the Web has exploded the possibilities for all of us to reach our full potential through learning.

…We see learning as a fundamental life activity—almost on a par with something as essential as breathing—that takes place without our necessarily even being aware. We’re born with a native will to learn, and to a large extent we “just do it” throughout most of our lives. And not just individuals—organizations and societies are systems with an innate capacity for learning.

Summing Up Mission To Learn

Most people know that the web is full of all manner of learning resources, but connecting with them is something of a different story. This site not only helps you make that connection, but delivers loads more in the form of extended learning resources, motivation, and community. The site truly is on a lifelong learning mission, and you are invited to come along.

Instructify For Better Education

instructifyWhere to Find Instructify:
Blog URL: http://www.instructify.com/
Category: Education, Personal Interests, Professions

Instructify

Instructify is one blog that knows exactly what it is and what it is doing; and that is delivering valuable resources for better educational experiences.

Instructify – Why You Should Go

Led by Bill Ferris, this blog, a project of LEARN NC of the University of North Carolina School of Education, is bringing resources to teachers and educators so that they may teach more effectively. It was founded and is maintained on one simple philosophy—”Teach Smarter, Not Harder”.

Instructify is the place for educators to come to find the resources that will help them do just that—be highly effective, efficient teachers who find consistently new and better ways to help students succeed. It is more than that, too, as explained on the Instructify About page:

Instructify is where teachers can stock their toolboxes with practical, time-saving classroom ideas and cutting edge methods of instruction. It’s where to find useful, free technology to utilize in the classroom. And it’s a fun place to spend your planning period.

Instructify is also a verb. To Instructify means to find new ways to present the same old content. Or MacGyvering anything from software to Post-it notes into something you can teach with. It also works great as a command. As in, ‘Don’t just teach, Instructify!’

There are a few things that Instructify isn’t, though. The blog isn’t a place for political educational debate or to “bemoan educational policy.” That is not to say that the blog or Bill Ferris do not necessarily find any merit in these types of discussions, but just to say that there is a time and a place, and that time and place is not on Instructify.

Summing Up Instructify

Instructify has one set goal, and that is to help educators be better at what they do, and in the process enjoy that experience more. You can count on Instructify to deliver just what you come there for, and nothing that you did not. It’s quite refreshing to experience a blog that knows just exactly who it is, and so be able to have a high level of reliability in it.

Bellringers

Our educators get our undying respect at this blog, as many of you already know. This is one educator who has certainly earned that respect, both for her dedication to her students and profession and for her willingness to go above and beyond her calling.

Bellringers – Why You Should Go

Carol Richtsmeier is going above and beyond the ‘normal’ lessons of the classroom and teacher education, and teaching the lessons that one can only learn one way—by doing. Her blog is by a teacher for a teacher, and for parents and anyone else who is interested, and it’s all about the tips and tricks that they won’t teach you on a teacher inservice day. It’s life’s lessons and the reality of teaching, all rolled into one—and it’s very good stuff!

As for topics, they are quite diverse; after all, isn’t that the reality of life? But there is always a moral and always something new to learn. More than that, though, they are all infused with Carol ‘Richie’ Richtsmeier’s energy and passion for life, living, and education. It’s a passion that is infectious, and if you can get through her profile without a smile, I’d be thoroughly surprised.

Summing Up Bellringers

It’s worth a trip over to Bellringers just to enjoy Carol’s attitude and spirit. Be careful, though, you might just learn a thing or two about life along the way!

Preserving The Past

World War II History

Steven Terjeson is one blogger who understands the importance of “preserving the past for the future”. His blog is a testament and an exercise in that.

World War II History – Why You Should Go

Steven Terjeson considers World War II to be the world’s greatest war. Certainly, it has many lessons to teach to us all—many lessons of extreme importance that should never be lost at any cost. Terjeson is doing his part and more to ensure that does not happen. He maintains this site in part as a hobby of interest, but in larger part as an easily accessible, ongoing history lesson and project to keep the knowledge of the past alive.

In his own words, Terjeson describes his site:

“World War II History (WWarII.com) is dedicated to preserving and promoting the history and historical value of the greatest war.

Our main goal is to collect and record WWII information including photos, documents, related past and present news, and equipment details. It is a project, hobby, and dream to build and to share.”

In building his blog, Terjeson has created a unique format. Largely, posts go day by day and deliver interesting facts about the war for that date in time. In many ways, it’s a little like reliving the news of the day, although certainly nothing could compare to what the many soldiers and families experienced at the time.

Summing Up World War II History

Steven Terjeson’s World War II History blog is both a blog of interest and importance. Learn more than you ever thought to know about this important period in time, and pass it on so that it should live on.
