Taking a minute to cruise through tweetdeck. These are very important minutes and I try to do them everyday. I learn something everyday. Which is important. Hit this nugget from Matthew Cordes
Wow. I don’t know why, but that simple question just sticks in my head. What a cool and intriguing way to start a conversation in schools, a meeting, a learning opportunity, a training, an EdCamp. What if your school didn’t have a copier?
Thank you Matthew!

That stuck with me too! Imagine the possibilities for creating meaningful work for students without our “old standby” to fall back on.
