Privacy, The GDPR and Your School

You've probably seen a number of emails lately telling you that companies have changed their privacy policies. We've update our privacy policy too.

Why? The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from the EU says personal data no longer belongs to the company or school that collects it, but belongs to the person it identifies.

We've assembled information explaining GDPR, how it will affect your school and classroom, how it's enforced, and what you can do to make your school web sites and internal systems GDPR complaint. learn more...

Assistive Technology For Students

There is a wide range of assistive devices and technologies used in schools. We look at the different technology options, how they help, how to get them funded, and include a primer on disability etiquette. learn more...

Active Shooter Planning & Prevention

A trend that's sadly on the increase these days is school shootings and violent incidents. At the request of a CUE Conference attendee, we've put together a primer on effective school shooter policies, ways to get students to speak up and ideas on how to spot problems before they turn dangerous. learn more...

Professional Development Options

Summer is upon us, where most students get to go on a 3 month recess and the teachers get to "enjoy" professional development.

Make sure to check out your nearby museums, zoos and aquariums. Many offer classes for teachers that can fulfill your PD requirements while having fun. We index many other ideas in Professional Development.

Backyard Adventures

On the lighter side, here are some fun projects and experiments you and your students can do this summer. Many of them can make good classroom projects. learn more...

We really enjoyed seeing everyone at the CUE Conference in Palm Springs and look forward to meeting more of you in Philadelphia at the STEM Forum & Expo in July.

Enjoy your Summer!

We publish a quarterly Newsletter via e-mail. The newsletter highlights new and expanded areas of the site and keep you posted on new developments.
