This is believed to be the second year in a row that the government has blocked access to the internet in the days leading up to and during the exams.

Doug Madory, Dyn's internet analysis director, told Voactive: "There was certainly a lot of skepticism about this explanation last summer, but the outages did coincide with exams and nothing emerged to dispute the explanation."

A leaked email by Iraqi ISP, obtained by Lebanon based technology and human rights group SMEX, specified the timings of the outages.

As an anonymous source explained: "What happens usually is that some teachers would be giving the exams questions to students who pay money, then those students would sell online questions all over country.

In 2014, Uzbekistan enforced a nationwide internet outage to curb cheating.

Internet freedom activist group Access Now's senior global advocacy manager Deji Olukotun said: "We see this, especially in such a destabilized country as Iraq, as really terrible.

Their reasons vary a bit, but they all seem to agree that there's something deeply wrong with the way we're teaching schoolchildren to do math these days.

My daughter, "SteelyKid" to the Internet, is in third grade, and delights in not just doing math homework, but explaining how she got her answers, and I hope she never stops.

There's a lot in the Garelick and Beals piece that I intensely dislike, but their core argument boils down to "The real point of math is being able to get the right answer, so as long as students get the right number, nothing else should matter."

And it's not like I'm totally lacking in sympathy for this-- when I was in middle school, I hated being required to "show work" for math problems, too, for more or less the same reason.

The point of this is to try to weed out the ludicrously wrong answers that come from small mistakes made while "turning the crank" on poorly-understood mathematical algorithms.

This kind of reasoning shows that she understands the process at a deeper level, which is great.

Why not start it off right—with a reminder of your kids’ growing indifference to you, proffered by your hardware brand of choice?

It opens with a nondescript suburban house, sprinklers switching on as if to benchmark normality.

Jeff Bezos, pictured, showed potential very early.Getty

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos was a smart and enterprising kid, as Brad Stone writes in his 2013 book "The Everything Store."

In sixth grade, he practiced statistical analysis by designing a survey so students could rate the teachers.

But it's still possible for kids who struggle academically to become successful.

As Brad Stone wrote in his 2013 bestseller, "The Everything Store," that was Bezos' pseudonym in the book "Turning on Bright Minds," which explored a gifted-education program in Texas where Bezos was a student.

Bezos' teachers told the book's author, Julie Ray, that he was "not particularly gifted in leadership."

Okay, full disclosure, I never read any Baby-Sitters Club book.

We all had some endless series we read where a few kids just like us navigated the vicissitudes of life, teaching us lessons along the way.

I’m hoping that The Friendship Code, which aims to do that — but with tech and coding woven in — will become that series for at least a few kids.

The young-adult novel, first in a planned series of who knows how many, takes place in the real world, where phones, coding, apps and all that are just a part of how things are.

I was finally in sixth grade.

I was finally going to my very first coding club meeting!

But a month later, she found in her mailbox a formal-looking envelope fastened with the official White House seal.

Obama’s recipe—for White House Kitchen Garden Cucumber Soup—joins recipes from Michael Pollan, and chefs Thomas Keller and Ina Garten, and many other luminaries in Saving Pan, a new cookbook created by Abbruzzese and 13 other Portland teens.

The cookbook benefits the work of Jane Goodall’s Tchimpounga Sanctuary in the Republic of the Congo.

“In sixth grade, I was really into the environment, and I wanted to help give back,” said Abbruzzese, who admits to an obsession with Goodall.

She met a primatologist friend of her father’s who told her about Roots & Shoots, Goodall’s youth-led community action program.

After researching why chimpanzees are endangered, the girls decided to focus on raising awareness of the illegal bushmeat trade, which is one of the biggest threats to chimp populations in Africa.

On lengths of yarn stretched between chairs, sixth-grade math students were placing small yellow squares of paper, making number lines—including everything from fractions to negative decimals—in a classroom at Walsh Middle School.

Indeed, despite the buzz around personalized learning, there s no simple recipe for success, and the common ingredients — such as adaptive-learning technology and student control over learning — can backfire if poorly implemented.

Qualitatively, however, some broad themes emerged in visits and conversations with teachers, administrators, students and parents at several Basecamp schools.

Still, the Basecamp participants said they overcame the rocky starts and that any school can follow their lead if its teachers and students are willing to shed old assumptions, comfortable routines and a few tears along the way.

Back at Summit Denali, Bock said the goal of personalized-learning time is not to replace teacher-student interactions but to enhance them.

Back at Walsh Middle School in Framingham, O Connor said Summit s approach opened up a little more room for creativity and higher-level thinking in the number-line project.
