Edudemic also has a post explaining "How Competency-Based Learning Actually Works." For those not familiar, Competency-Based Learning (CBL) is "designed to provide students with a personalized online education that they can compete at their own pace and that takes advantage of competence learned through experience." For more info, check out the article (it's primarily directed towards higher ed.)
Finally, Edudemic writes about "3 Student Tech Trends Teachers Should Know About." The article covers the "uncoolness" of Facebook, the importance of Apps over hardware, and the desire to share everything through sites like Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram. If you're new to the tech/social media game, this is a great post to start getting your feet wet.
