Examiner
Remember when you went to a day spa for a facial and maybe a massage or both or added a body scrub, like they do at Burk Williams, Ole Henrikson, etc. Well, today, the whole day spa scene has evolved and you no longer get just any facial but a full-rejuvenating, machine-operated treatment.

By Emma Fitzpatrick
I know, I know. You've heard Google cry "Algorithm change!" before, and it seemed like nothing happened. But this time it's different. Unlike the last few updates, Google has said their newest algorithm change is going to be one of the biggest to date. Starting April 21, Google is going to penalize any websites that aren't optimized for mobile devices. If your site is already optimized for mobile, you're golden. If not, you've got some work to do.

By Savanna Flakes
Choice is one of the greatest motivators and also one of the most powerful tools in setting up a differentiated classroom. Who doesn't love choose? As adults, we prefer to have choice in our staff book studies, professional development and class schedules. Likewise, choice provides students many options to navigate content and show their mastery of material. Choice boards are one of the greatest strategies I have found to be beneficial in supporting student learning in differentiated classrooms.
