School bullying has taken a high-tech twist. This CBS article, with accompanying video and interactive features, describes this alarming trend and provides information for parents and teachers on how to protect children and teens from cyber crime.

In the Classroom

Though short, this article provides teachers and parents with an awareness as to the extent that cyber bullying can go. Discuss with students the consequences of online-bullying, and use this article to show the effects it can have on it's victims.Encourage students to bring the article home to parents, or take the middle man out and post it on a teacher wiki or webpage to allow parents instance access. This would be an appropriate prerequisite before a project that requires virtual interaction, such as googledocs, (reviewed here), or any other online classroom resource.

Here's proof that education is a challenge everywhere. In this article, a British researcher suggests that traditional top-down education innovation and reform efforts might be supplanted by facilitating peer-to-peer sharing of innovations - a sort of global teachers' lounge. It's an interesting perspective.

Administrators and those interested in training qualified teachers and deploying them where they're most needed will find this paper from Arizona State University intriguing. The authors advocate for a system similar to that which has been used to attract physicians and health care professionals to specific training programs and practice locations. Both the concept and the logic are interesting and well presented.

The federal Department of Education offers this site that lets users access a database of federal programs, grant opportunities, and services. Its utility for the average teacher is largely dependent on specific circumstances, but it does consolidate a great deal of information into a single resource. There is also a very complete listing of state resources, and these may be more directly useful.
