This is a place for me to share some of my work. On this site you will find many examples of micro lessons. Many of them will take the form of 1 to 10 minutes video clips or short to the point articles. I believe that micro lessons could be a powerful tool that we can use with students. I hope that you enjoy this Blog site. This site will discuss educational technology as a tool for student learning. Site Publisher Fred Sharpsteen

We need to think different about students that struggle in traditional classrooms. They may not fit our idea of what and how a student should learn. This article from Opensource.com talks about Thomas Edison one of the great minds as a child was thought of as a slow learner and not able to learn. We know now that he just thought different then most people. In a book wrote by Thom Hartmann called, "The Edison Gene" he says, "that people like Thomas Edison may hold immense value to human evolution and possibly the key to survival of the human species due to their open mind and creativity, despite symptoms or a diagnosis of ADHD. Instinctively Nancy Edison knew that her son had tremendous potential and that his creativity and inventions had immense value. She encouraged her son to learn by doing. And she never considered her son's hearing impairment to be a barrier either."
