Smart Foods for Brain Health
There is an old saying: “You are what you eat.” What exactly does that mean? You might just as easily say the opposite: “You are what you don’t eat.” There are differences between the types of foods you eat to provide energy to the body and the foods you eat to provide energy to the brain.

Today, it is a common practice for educational institutions to promote the use of learning and teaching measurements; as a matter of fact, it has become a requirement in most schools. Many methods are used to measure the success of student learning.

Teach Marketing with Pinterest
Years ago, marketing ideas were presented using large presentation boards, drawings, or images and an impressive narrative to add a bit of reality to how the product may be viewed by others. Do you remember the hit television series Mad Men that is set in the 1960s?

Teaching and Learning in Virtual Worlds
Schools such as Harvard, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Stanford have developed university tours within SL for potential students to visit the campus virtually.
