School on a Bus

A colleague of mine sent me this article from the NYT over the weekend that talks about buses in Arkansas being wired for Internet so students can learn on their long commutes to school.

Harnessing idle time for learning, what a great idea!

Remember Who Your Followers Are

Last week Jodan Burnham visited our school. I tweeted about it...a reporter who follows me saw my tweet and then wrote a story about it. A few days earlier, a colleague of mine was referenced in a Tweet, only it wasn't really about him, it was a mis-tweet and I am wondering who looked him up and got as confused as I did about what he had said that promoted the tweet.

Interesting times we live in, just a reminder to think before you tweet and make sure you know who may be reading.
