It is great to talk to students about interesting jobs. An Attitude and Orbit control systems engineer is an interesting one, particularly if you're studying flight or space.

I find this trending article disturbing and off base. I also think that the first#1 is such an insult to teachers that I, personally, couldn't keep quiet. I don't understand why we as teachers continue to allow such disrespect to our profession. I just don't see these things being taught in most of today's schools and don't know where her facts come from. But then again, much of what is written about education is done so by those who don't have a clue but tell a story well and the general public won't get their facts.We have to be voices for what is really happening and where we need to go. Education has a way to go, but I don't know anyone that believes these things.

Fastest growing tech companies as noted by Forbes.Topping the list is LinkedIn and second is Apple.It is shocking that Apple is still growing quickly because this list is calculated on percentages and their amount of revenue is huge compared to Linkedin and the others. Qlik, Athenahealth, Equinix, Ebix and others are included. Of note is Shutterfly. The article notes that Shutterfly is currently agreeing to buy the Kodak Gallery from the Eastman Kodak bankruptcy proceedings.

Linked in is buying slideshare. I've always loved slideshare for the ability to quickly share presentations and also to find other great presos as well. You can record your audio and go backand link it with your slides to create a slidecast. Lots of features there. Now, Linkedin has bought slideshare. FYI. We'll wait and see if it is absorbed or still stands alone. If it is absorbed, that won't be good for my students because linkedin just doesn't fit for this time in their lives in my opinion.

This is a group on Linked in where over 20K teachers and administrators chat.

Although I know that someone is going to make the comment that an ipad can hold all of the books held in some of these libraries, I adore books. I like being around them and LOVE libraries. I think if I could ever build my dream home, it would have a beautiful floor to ceiling library. This gorgeous set of photographs shows the 15 most spectacular libraries in Europe. One you'll want to pass along to librarians.

Interesting, a biology lesson using a style from "the Apprentice" to provide peer feedback in the area of forensic entomology. Themed lessons like this add interest, especially if it is a program that kids watch.

Link to a prezi about how a teacher and students use Twitter for learning (see the direct prezi link.) This also links to the blog and has information on it and is the original source where I found the file over at TES.

This prezi (that I found on TES resources) is about how this teacher uses Twitter to pomote independent learning.

The idea of a "thinking walk" is a neat one. In this one, students walk and reflectoin how we used plants. They record their thinking walk through photographs or recording audio. Thinking walks would be fascinating things to do at the end of the school year.
