This is the first time I have joined a professional social network. My previous experience is limited to Facebook, and I use it mostly to keep track of family and friends: being far away from home pushes me to use it more frequently.

An interesting thing happened on the way home from Educon 2.2 last Sunday night. Walking through the terminal and against my exhaustion, I reflexively checked my mail. Lazy eyes lifted open, I flicked my thumb scrolling… trolling for a demand of action. I’m hyper-connected. I pay for it. And yet, I’m a better teacher and leader because of it. This is the sort of thing that I am betting many folks in this…

The other day, my son had done something we didn't approve of and so we took his cell phone away and access to the computer. He loves technology for what it offers, both good and not so good: YouTube
, social networks for kids or not (myspace
) and research for school. Over the course of a summer break, he taught himself how to read music, play the guitar and follow along with these videos to learn certain songs - I must… Continue

Who doesn't like 80's music? Okay, the song is a little cheesy, but take a look at this in 4 x YouTube HD! We've all see a lot of YouTube in our time, but this is really cool and probably very time consuming. Four YouTube Videos running simultaneously to form one video. Click play at the top to have them auto synced. I wish I would have thought of this...…
