Structuring Information
Another of the great +TYPO International Design Talks from +Oliver Reichenstein
Warmly welcomed by Eric Spiekermann, Oliver Reichenstein enters the spotlight. The interface designer from Zürich and the founder of “Information Architects Inc.” starts off his talk with a short introduction of himself. Before “information architect” was an actual profession, Reichenstein studied philosophy. From early on he had been passionate about programming, which led him to […]

The best way to complain is to make things
I really enjoyed this speech from +tina roth eisenberg.
Tina will share stories about how her labors of loves (aka side projects) redefined her career. She will urge us to embrace generosity and kindness in the work place. And she will most likely explain why every business needs a confetti drawer. You might want to buckle up for this one.

Chirp for Chrome‽
 
Get on the same page with Tone

Sometimes in the course of exploring new ideas, we'll stumble upon a technology application that gets us excited. Tone is an experimental Chrome extension that makes sharing digital things with nearby people as easy as talking to them. 

Tone broadcasts the URL of the current tab to any machine within earshot that also has the extension installed. We’ve found it useful for quickly sharing documents with everyone in a meeting, contributing relevant links without interrupting conversations, and maybe even the occasional rickroll (https://goo.gl/smp6ig). 

To get started, first install the Tone extension for Chrome (http://g.co/tone). Then simply open a tab with the URL you want to share, make sure your volume is on, and press the Tone button. Your machine will then emit a short sequence of beeps. Nearby machines receive a clickable notification that will open the same tab. Getting everyone on the same page has never been so easy!

Introduction
I am a two-way dual-language bilingual immersion educator. I currently work in a blended learning lab at Nimitz Ninth Grade School in Aldine ISD in Houston, Texas. Recently, I was a 6th grade bilingual Social Studies (World Cultures) teacher at the New Caney Sixth Grade Campus in New Caney, Texas. Previously, I was an educator of bilingual students at Splendora Junior High School and Splendora High School in Splendora, Texas. I also speak to teachers, students, parents, and administrators about biliteracy and its importance in educating 21st century learners.
