Lego fun!!!
 
The Lego Builder is a fun tool to help students design and share their lego creations. They can even post them on a Google Map and see other structures from around the world. The tutorial is a set of challenges to get them comfortable with the workings of the program and it has the added benefit of never leaving a piece on the ground for you to step on in the middle of the night. Here's my guide on how to build with Lego Builder.

Let's meet after I get back from vacation. I will be back 7-14. I would love to talk to you more about this and our district's ideas for PD in 14-15. I want to find a way to get everyone reenergized.

Great new feature!
 
The Suggested Edits is a really neat new feature in Google Docs. It's a much better student peer-editing tool allowing students to make the choice about an edit. Here's a quick tip sheet to introduce it to teachers or students.

This was awesome to watch this morning. I am really hoping to pilot a paperless classroom next year and am in the middle of edmodo and google. :)

Great info graphic! How might you use this with students?
 
The Internet In Real Time [Infographic]

You must go see this live-- one of the most creative uses of a real-time infographic I've seen in a long time! I love this kind of stuff! 

Go see it live right now: http://dustn.ws/realtimeinternet

The screencap I have below only shows 30 seconds but it will keep going and going as long as you're on the page! 

The creators of this infographic (that may not even be the name for it) basically took data from all over the place such as:

- Number of tweets in a day
- Number of hours of +YouTube watched every hour
- Number of +1's per day
- Number of Apple and +Android apps downloaded every day
- Etc...

And used that data to break down that data by second so that they could display it in real time. Really brilliant stuff. I almost feel like it's worthy of it's own blog post on +dustn.tv... #idea  

Anything about this surprise you?

HT +Irfan Ahmad and +Christine DeGraff for the find!

Leading Change  - 
 
Leading change is hard. We often must allow others to stand on our shoulders to see "a new world." Who did you lift today?
 
In 1963 Lute Jerstad and Barry Bishop were part of the first American expedition to reach the summit of Mount Everest.  After Barry’s son, Brent, summited the mountain in 1994, Lute wrote the following to Brent,

“Accomplishing such a feat isn’t much in and of itself, but in the long run it provides a mortal with a new, fresh and satisfying view of the world below.  Now you erase the word can’t from your vocabulary.”   Lute Jerstad

What a beautiful image this sets for the mission of giants. Lifting others up isn’t done so that they may be above others, but that they may have “a new, fresh and satisfying view of the world below.”  It also gives them the confidence to erase the word can’t from their vocabulary.

Who is on your shoulders today?
