Will it Blend? Putting the Person Back in Personalized Online Learning Studies
For all the great advantages of online learning, there is one big downside, which is not necessarily the fault of online learning but of the way people relate to it:
There exists a wide-spread deception that using tools can replace teaching or learning for that matter, and while few people would admit actually believing this, the number of blogs and articles about techno-centric education prove the opposite.
Their approach is built on the valid understanding that tools can be used as an extension but then goes overboard until the learning itself becomes completely shrouded in never-ending talks about tools, technologies, apps, etc.
All of this obscures the fact that while people like to talk about education and be seen as philanthropists their understandingof what learning actually means might be limited.

Why Parents and Educators Are Epically Failing the War on Cyber-Bullying
A recent study showed that 74% of Parents friend Their Children on Facebook.
Needless to say, they don’t always do it just for fun.
Since Social Media mirrors the world of relationships with all its attractions and dangers, parents naturally want to keep tabs on what their offspring is doing, especially if they’re underaged.
As simple as it sounds, this monitoring is demanding more and more time from both parents and educators.
But is there really a need to monitor your kids? Isn’t that a bit “big-brotherish”?
