More Labs, Less Tests...and RSS

This story by the BBC about encouraging more students to study science by putting more emphasis on hands-on experiments and less on testing is an interesting follow-up to a few of the recent blog posts on Motivation Matters. It's a quick and interesting read.

And on a technical note, a few weeks back, we had a glitch with our RSS feed. To start the feed up again, try unsubscribing and then re-subscribing, and it should clear up the problem. And if you don't already subscribe to the Motivation Matters feed, I highly suggest that you click the big orange RSS feed link on the right column to get started. It's a great way to keep up with the latest posts here, and with all your favorite blogs.

Here's a video to explain the basics and get you started:
