"All of a sudden we saw an explosion of student creativity"  

"The wow factor was high with the iPads, and the school was convinced they were going to be an iPad school, until the kids started trying to produce content on them. At this point the focus shifted to entirely to the Chromebook and Google Apps, where content was easy to produce and collaboration came naturally."

Hey Adam, Mike, and Emma,
I have a teacher at our high school that would like for three of her students to have a hangout with a developer, preferably from Google.  Do you know anyone that would be interested?  It could be anytime between now and December 20th.  The students are together in class at 1:35 to 3:10 Eastern.

Thanks in advance.

This is from the teacher...

My students are exploring career options and I am requiring them to interview someone in their field of interest which is computer programming. The students will have a list of questions they will ask in relation to perks of the job,challenges in the field of computer programming, and working for Google. We greatly appreciate your time with this request.

Five thinks we need to do as educators. From Jamie Vollmer at #NCASA2014

1. Stop bad mouthing schools (teachers, students) in public

2. Shift attention from negative to the positive.

3. Share something positive.

4. Sustain the effort. How any positive things did I say this week?

5. Start now!

Fire at the MCO airport. Palm trees on fire. This was the view from the tram. You could feel the heat.

On Wednesday afternoon, a handful of palm trees near the building at the front of the A-side departure level ramp caught fire.

Operations were not impacted and one of the monorail trains was temporarily halted for about 10 minutes out of caution, according to OIA officials.

Airport fire officials put out the fire, which was likely started by a cigarette butt. The arson investigation will continue.
