I think the calls to justify ourselves happen whether we're negotiating or not. And I accept that there are many of those who criticize what teachers do and who will do so no matter what anyone says to them. They are often the same people who believe that ALL public servants are lazy, All police are corrupt, etc. I think they are also balanced off by the thousands of parents who thank teachers and tell them how much they appreciate the work they are doing with their children.

If people are willing to enter into reasoned discussion with an open mind I'm happy to do that, but if they are closed minded. so be it. Doesn't bother me, they are entitled to their uninformed opinions. 

This election was about choosing the best of several bad options. Do the OLP have warts, absolutely, but they were the best available. On the encouraging side I'd point out that having gone through Bill 115 there are some early signs that OLP have learned from it. They were willing to collectively bargain and rebuild some bridges after Bill 115. In addition, the last time through the bargaining process that lead to Bill 115 was not subject to OLRB regulations. Now it is, there's a set of rules, etc. I'm not suggesting this won't be difficult, because I believe that it will, but there are some small reasons for a bit of hope.

We tell our students that whatever we put online lasts forever. Part of the responsibility of that is to make sure that before we definitively put something online we're sure it's accurate. As teens discover every day once your online reputation is smeared it's very hard to rebuild it. As adults we should know better.

Trying to connect a nexus 7 to Apple TV. All Cast recognizes the Apple TV but won't stream any video. Any set up required? Thanks.

Am trying to stream from a nexus 7 to Apple TV. All Cast can find the Apple TV but won't stream the video. Is there any set up needed?

I'd like to be a beta tester. Nexus 7. Especially interested in using in the classroom.
