Before you leave on a hike, be sure to fill out a LASD – HIKING PLAN sheet and provide to a loved one to hold onto just in case something happens to a member of your hiking/camping expedition. Or, if you know someone going on a hike, ask them to fill out this easy form, so that it will help your mind at ease. You can download the form by visiting:

Disasters can affect many people and a wide area such as an earthquake, or can affect less people and a smaller area such as a severe windstorm that knocks down thousands of power lines, blocking streets and making it difficult for repair crews to restore power for many days or over a week.

Even if only a few people are affected, if it's you, it's 100%.

Instead of ignoring these facts and hoping for the best, take action now to help yourself and the people you love. Would you be ready if there were an emergency?

Be prepared:

Assemble an emergency supply kit,
Make your emergency plans,
Stay informed,
And get involved in helping your family, your business, and your community be ready for emergencies.

Be prepared for when - not if - the next emergency occurs. How prepared are you? Preparedness is a responsibility we all share. Let's all do our part. Top priorities are shelter, food, water, and power, but there is a lot more to it.

Why Hasn't Social Networking Taken Off in K-12 Education?

Posted on June 20, 2007 at 11:44pm 0 Comments

There has been much discussion of late about the potential of social

networking in the K-12 environment. These tools, which include

blogging, podcasting, file sharing, and RSS, as well as the "social"

structure of friendships, communities, and peers, have been said to

have the potential to transform both teaching and learning, and rightly

collaboration and sharing.

Our district has… Continue

Oh, there you are. I just sent a message to you on your CUE page. :) I started a Ning for parents and teachers at my school recently. I'm now looking for a different tool to use with students. We have approximately 1200, in grades K-12. Do you think Elgg would be a good fit for me?

Hi Jim. I was wondering if your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some other educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
