If my cats could go to the Secretary of State's office and ask them to change my license plates then this would be the result. Go Hawks!

What do you use to create an animated GIF for your profile picture? imgflip? GIFMaker? Picasion? All three seem to work fine but looking for opinions as to which one is "best".

Our guidance counselors are creating a college and career preparation unit for all students. It will be designed within Schoology, it will be span all four years of high school, and several of the modules will be self-paced.  It's very ambitious but we all feel it's going to be a great success.
 
Schoology offers extremely flexible self-paced learning features. Learn more about Student Completion Rules: http://t.sch.gy/url4p #edtech

Would you do the right thing if it meant possibly losing an important game? This video shows a girl who had just hit a home run - but was hurt on the base path and couldn't actually finish running the bases. The other team did something that you will possibly never believe until you see it. So watch it, then pass it on.

What is VPN? VPN is used to provide a secure connection to many computer resources that are safely protected back in the district office. If you are at home or anyplace else outside of school you can use VPN to send print ...

Green Monster tickets are $600 PER SEAT for the Patriots' Day game.  That's the actual face-value price of a bleacher ticket. Come on, +Boston Red Sox, that's not right!

Should teachers be filtered on the Internet at school? The law only says that we need to protect students - there is nothing that says teachers should be blocked from web sites. Common sense says that anything illegal should be blocked, but why do schools block teachers from accessing Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube? Where do you draw the line?
