Ready to unveil my latest attempt at blogging...I always struggle with the balance between making things personal but not getting too personal. This blog is where I will describe my daily adventures in lifelong learning, from taking college courses through +University of the People to participating in MOOCs like +Udemy to (potentially) starting up a +Mozilla Webmakers club or Hive in York, PA.

I'm at the Lancaster-Lebanon IU for day two of the #gafesummit . Great opportunity to learn more about how Google Apps for Ed can improve teaching and learning in our schools.

"Courage is more exhilarating than fear and in the long run it is easier. We do not have to become heroes overnight. Just a step at a time, meeting each thing that comes up, seeing it is not as dreadful as it appeared, discovering we have the strength to stare it down." -- Eleanor Roosevelt

"If we take everything into account — not only what the ancients knew, but all of what we know today that they didn't know — then I think that we must frankly admit that we do not know.

But, in admitting this, we have probably found the open channel.

This is not a new idea; this is the idea of the age of reason. This is the philosophy that guided the men who made the democracy that we live under. The idea that no one really knew how to run a government led to the idea that we should arrange a system by which new ideas could be developed, tried out, and tossed out if necessary, with more new ideas brought in — a trial and error system. This method was a result of the fact that science was already showing itself to be a successful venture at the end of the eighteenth century. Even then it was clear to socially minded people that the openness of possibilities was an opportunity, and that doubt and discussion were essential to progress into the unknown. If we want to solve a problem that we have never solved before, we must leave the door to the unknown ajar."

--Richard Feynman

Just introduced my sister-in-law who is in college to Google drive for the first time a week ago.  It's shaping the education & collaboration of the future.  Just like Khan Academy.

Absolutely brilliant piece on teams. Very eye opening.
 
This groundbreaking article defined precisely what a team is--and what it isn't. It's our classic pick of the week from the archive.
What makes the difference between a team that performs and one that doesn’t?

Never forget to hydrate again.
Water is the best thing you can put in your body, yet so many of us ignore it throughout the day. Here are some great ways to trick yourself into developing a healthy habit of drinking lots of water every day.
