Got this email from a teacher
Hi Vicki- I love your blog, tweets and contributions to flipboard! I am a teacher at a local school district charter high school and appreciate your zeal for teaching and learning. I am not sure if you have heard about Kahoot! but wanted to ask you to check it out by following it on Twitter or watching a few youtube videos of Kahoot in action. I have no financial investment in it or any reason for recommending it other than how much we are enjoying using it at our school and how valuable a tool I believe it to be. Questions can be entered by students or teachers and pictures can be uploaded to each question to add visual appeal. The students can use computers, smart phones, tablets and don't have to have an account- they just log in to
kahoot.it and then join the interactive quiz. Everyone gets so involved and passionate and it is great for reviews before tests or for supplemental instruction. The results can be viewed on a spreadsheet and provide formative assessments. It can be used for any ages and any subjects. I am so jazzed about this great new tool and hope you will be too.

Very cool graphic design tool that you can use to make graphics for your blog, etc.
5 Ways for Students To Showcase Their Work - a great list from Richard Byrne.
I've been playing around with Flare on my blog. 5 of the 10 top sites in social media use Flare. Here is the instruction for how to activate and use it. Oddly I got some malware alerts from Malwarebytes so although I'm using it, I'm contacting the developer to try to understand why.
Very cool likttle programmable robot for kids - you put your iphone or ipod touch on the frame and you can teach Romo how to do things (and learn programming.)
When you're afraid of speaking, there are things that happen. I enjoy reading about the science behind stage fright.
Helpful Google forms Tutorials for teachers if you're wanting to learn how to do this. Great info from Richard Byrne.
Fascinating. But how does this impact any open school networks here? I'm wondering if this will impact schools as well? I have an open network for guests where they have to accept our terms of service, but then, we have a student network. This is one to watch, but if we provide an open network and don't disclose that people can (and probably will) steal your data.
I don't see how Google can argue this, though -- there is the assumption of privacy and security of your own data and you have to give permission for Facebook, Google etc. to get your data - you don't give permission for a random stranger to see it no matter where you are. This is a stretch and a problem if it goes through.
