I'd really like to share my students' latest PASSION/PURPOSE project with you, just in time for Earth Day! For those of you who are familiar with Keurig Coffee and the K Cup that it comes in, you'll know that it is not recyclable. Recently the inventor has expressed his regret for inventing it due to the environmental problem it has created. Well my students and I have found a solution to the problem! We are repurposing them for many incredible uses in the classroom! They have honestly been a game changer in my math program! You have to check out my students' video: https://vimeo.com/123803148 
We have also developed a web page with lessons, resources, poster and letters to parents to help teachers start saving K Cups in their own classrooms: https://mrcssharesease.wordpress.com/k-cups-4-classrooms/
My students have "saved" 1000+ K Cups and hope to save 1 000 000 world wide.
I am really hoping you will join our #KCups4Classrooms initiative and/or help spread this great idea to help my students' reach their goal and to make a positive difference in the world! 
Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, ideas or suggestions!

CELL PHONES ALLOW WSU TO TRACK ANIMAL DISEASES GLOBALLY 
In rural Kenyan villages where few families have electricity or indoor plumbing, a surprising technology helps researchers study the health of animals and people: the cell phone.

Families who are part of the population-based animal syndromic surveillance project, or PBASS, use their cell phones to call a veterinarian toll free when an animal is sick. More than 70 percent of families participating in the survey have cell phones; only three percent are connected to the electricity grid.

“Mobile telephony is actually very well developed in most of Africa, especially in Kenya,” says Thumbi Mwangi, clinical assistant professor in the Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health, who has been collecting data since the survey began in February 2013.

Teaching my students to connect globally and to be of service to others!  My lower-income American students have raised money and donated supplies for my school in Brazil.  Teaching by example!  Please share.
During the summer of 2013, I moved to Rio de Janeiro to volunteer in the largest favela (slum) in South America.   The children of Rocinha have grown up in a tangled, concrete, dense,  mountainside community amid violence, pollution, and abject poverty.  Electricity and basic plumbing are relati...
