Are you coming to the Housing Work rehearsals with John and Hank Green on Monday, January 14th? If so, you have a shot at winning a pair of tickets to see them on Tuesday, January 15th at Carnegie Hall for “An Evening of Awesome” in celebration of the anniversary of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. We will be giving away a pair of tickets to this SOLD OUT show at both the morning and afternoon rehearsals.
Hope to see you there!

Come to the rehearsals on Monday in NYC (UNLESS YOU ALREADY HAVE TIX TO CARNEGIE). It will be fun. $10, and all proceeds to Housing Works.
Tickets for the morning show.
Tickets for the afternoon show.

Nerd Fighteria!!  So cool. Wish I could go.

I only watch Big Bang Theory once in a while, but when I saw this I thought of some of my favorite #education people.

So you know, how your nerves work – an animated explanation from TED-Ed.

Nerves are far more than wires, folks. It’s more than electricity. They’re electrochemical wonders that allow us to be the complex organisms that we are today.

I’ve rearranged my classroom!  The first image is my “pod” set up.  There’s much more space now to walk around.  When the desks were in rows there was less than a foot between them!

The second image is my “Student Zone” board and desk.  I’m going to put extra handouts in the folders under each class.  I’ve also got the weekly/unit schedule up for students to check out.  On the whiteboard (semi behind my desk) I’m going to record the day’s agenda and homework.  

I’m planning on adding a few more signs to the room but it’s pretty much ready for the first day of school!

Love seeing ideas from teachers. Here are more.

5 Services Google Just Shut Down | Edudemic

Google is remoingg five services including iGoogle - Google Mini, Google Talk Chatback and Google video aren’t much of a surprise, however, I’ve helped teachers set up personalized iGoogle pages. They are using RSS without knowing it. I think that Google reader is overwhelming for the average teacher, so iGoogle will be a huge loss. With no comparable service, I’ll take them to Netvibes. That one is a mistake, although we have 16 months to migrate data.
