Another interesting site for recommendations of apps, etc. Edshelf has some very interesting collections. They have collections for school counselors, for creating things, etc. I'm joining and looking into this site for finding cool things. If you like apps, try this site.

What is really happening in schools around the world? How many are being attacked? Why do people attack schools? If you want to understand the true nobility of teaching -- see this article. We are viewed as symbols of progress and community leadership. Attack us and you attack a community. It is heartbreaking but also at the same time, cognizant of the true leadership of teachers in our world today.

Immediately responding to your email makes you worse at your job! Researchers recently coined a term for this urge to immediately respond to emails and engage in obsessive thoughts about returning an email to one's boss, colleagues or clients: "workplace telepressure." They found that telepressure is not only a major cause of stress at work, it's also a health hazard. The research, which will be published in an upcoming issue of the Journal of Occupational Health Psychology, found that a fixation on work email can contribute to physical and mental burnout.

Free comic book about copyright that teaches you everything you need to know. You can even remix it. There are multiple translations as well (and you can buy a hard copy.) Awesome tool to use.

While gmail has added some encryption features, it isn't really enough of anything. ProtonMail was recommended by a recent Forbes article for having the highest level of security of any email service. If you need to send bank draft information, w-9's or other information, it makes sense to have one of these accounts. They simply charge for extra storage.

A cool tool for studying flashcards. Here's the system:
View a card and think of the answer.
Flip the card to reveal the answer.
Rate how well you will remember that answer forever on a scale of 1-5.
Brainscape will color code the cards based on your confidence rating.
Brainscape shows you lower-rated cards more often than those you already know.

The Teach 100 is a ranking of top blogs in education. Many great blogs on this list - many are group blogs but there are also some single blogs (like me). Excited to be on the list, especially with recently moving my blog - many lists like this I had to start completely over. Lots of great sites here.

Would be great to see some of our mobile technology companies in education win some of these awards. We've seen some great inroads of late. (Kahoot and Socrative are two of a few I can think of as well as some of the scanning apps, etc.)
