Steve Hargadon. Join Steve Hargadon on Thursday, August 25th, for a live and webinar with Bob Compton, producer of the new documentary film The Finland Phenomenon, an "inside look at the world's finest secondary education system." Narrated by Dr. Tony Wagner of Harvard (a previous guest on our show), the film does a very good job of showing the surprising factors that educators and policy-makers in Finland believe accounts for their consistently being ranked as one of the best (if not the best) education system in the world--including students starting school at age 7, limited homework and testing, highly-esteemed and compensated teachers, and "trust" at all levels. We'll talk about these and other fascinating aspects of education in Finland for an hour with Bob.

Hery The. In general, references management software is expensive. On the other hand, in the digital era, with the increasing in demand of school works, students couldn't afford to use it. The "Mendeley" provides free services online and offline for free. In this presentation, I will guide participants step by step on sign up and download Mendeley to their computer/mobile devices. In addition, I will do a demo on how to "cite while you write", and "manage library/references".
