The list of mind blowing videos covering the topic of 21st century education and learning is growing bigger and bigger. There are actually some clips that I think every teacher should watch if not twice then at least once.

Please excuse this self-serving, miscellaneous post, but I’ve just got to purge all of these code snippets and scraps collected over the years. Whenever I update this site, I place any removed/unused code snippets into a giant note file for future reference, just in case. There’s all sorts of different types of code and snippets that just keep growing and growing and.. and finally it gets to a point where I just need to dump everything and start fresh. That is the purpose of this post. SO rather than delete some of these gems, I thought it would be useful to post them here at Perishable Press and share with anyone who finds them useful. But be warned, these code snippets and scraps are provided wholesale, with little or no explanation, and should be used only if you truly know what you are doing.

With the use of Internet becoming more and more integral to education and our daily lives, I wonder at how it has grown into this wonderful yet possibly grotesque beast that very few of us at this point can live without. Our kids and students can be plugged into the world community at the touch of an onscreen icon - at home, at play, and at school. They use internet technology daily text-messaging, on Facebook, blogging, Twittering, watching videos, gaming, and even doing research for school. With this world-wide community at their beck and call come certain risks that we as adults are aware of, but they may not be. Have you ever stopped to think what happens in an internet minute - or how the digital world has literally taken off?
