Some bits and pieces passing across the mental bows recently:

1.  Image

Good graphic to show the difference.  Worth reading the rest of the post too.  From a blog that came through my reader – thanks Rob!

2.  Seth Godin has some good things to say – this sort of thing bugs me too about iCal.  Software needs to be smart and anticipate what our needs may actually be.  The kind of thing David Pogue parodied so well in his TED Talk.

3.  Some questions to ask your kids about what they did at school today to get an answer more than “nothing”:

  • What did you make today that was meaningful?
  • What did you learn about the world?
  • Who are you working with?
  • What surprised you?
  • What did your teachers make with you?
  • What did you teach others?
  • What unanswered questions are you struggling with?
  • How did you change the world in some small (or big) way?
  • What’s something your teachers learned today?
  • What did you share with the world?
  • What do you want to know more about?
  • What did you love about today?
  • What made you laugh?

4.  Fendalton Schools cybersafety info – very good! (Rob again!)

5.  GRITS Cluster Junior and Senior resource sharing sites.  Some good stuff here and well sorted into subject areas

6.  Some ideas about good presentation for a CV
