Weekend Ed. Quote ~ September 23

Give yourself time is an absurdly obvious principle that falls equally under heuristics and mathetics. Yet school flagrantly contravenes it by its ways of chopping time … Seymour Papert, A Word for Learning, In Constructionism in Practice, by Yasmin Kafai and Mitchel Resnick

New From the Library of Congress – Today in History Migrates to the LOC

Library of CongressNew Online: Today in History, Hispanic Heritage & Folklife Collections at this link

Today in History is an online presentation of historic events illustrated by items from the Library’s digital collections. First established in 1997, the site was migrated this month from the American Memory site to a new home on loc.gov. The revised site features larger images, responsive design and, most importantly, hundreds of updates, corrections and enhancements. The site’s content is written by reference experts from across many of the Library’s divisions and is a great resource for teachers, history enthusiasts and more. Each illustrated story ends with suggestions for further inquiry and investigation within the Library’s rich online resources.
