You know what's funny... I had no idea I had shared this. Weird. And slightly terrifying. :)

Interactive sheet music. A beautiful site. An interesting disruption to traditional modes of teaching and learning to play music.

The Instructional Designers are going to leave the room for 30 minutes. 

1. Define the obvious goal of the activity… one that is either obvious from the nature of the activity itself or one that you explicitly state for us.
 
2. Define (for yourselves only) an ulterior motive. In other words, what kinds of information about us or your fellow Fellows would you like to gather from the activity while we’re focused on accomplishing the more obvious goals of the activity? 

We’ll do the activity once we get back in the room.  Aim for a 15-30 minute activity.

Some interesting research from Google; it's focused on advertising videos but I think some of the viewability stats could carry over into education as well.

Ever been working heads down at the office, but needed to jot down a quick note for later? Send notes directly from your computer to your Android phone, and have them ready in your pocket when you need them.

Kodiak, Alaska is already using these! I think UAF should explore their uses. +Joanne Healy should definitely think about it!

Just be a little cautious, and think about talking to someone else as well as the superintendent.
