Teachers don't make a lot of money. In the spring of my career, I found myself questioning the choice of my life's work. I was on a plane recently and the flight attendant asked my name. I most certainly realize the extreme importance of being a competent teacher. For every student that finally "got it," for every rookie teacher that said, "you inspired me to stay," I get the raise that never quite made it to my paycheck. -- Rita F.

How Google Is Using People Analytics to Completely Reinvent HR First of two parts If you haven’t seen it in the news, after its stock price broke the $800 barrier last month, Google moved into the No. 3 position among the most valuable firms in the world. Google is clearly the youngest firm among the leaders; it has surprisingly been less than a decade since Google’s IPO. Most companies on the top 20 market cap list could be accurately described as “old school,” because most can attribute their success to being nearly half a century old, having a long established product brand, or through great acquisitions.

Caine's Arcade | A cardboard arcade made by a 9-year old boy. 4 Web 2.0 Technologies To Inspire Students Collaboration | Q&A 4 Web 2.0 Technologies To Inspire Students By Chris-Rachael Oseland09/14/11 Instructional Technologist Marta Magnuson is used to some skepticism when students see her syllabus. A lot of them have never heard of Web 2.0 technologies like Diigo, Glogster, Prezi, and PBworks. For some, the thought of using any technology they can't access from their phone breaks them out in a cold sweat. Magnuson said she has faith that the four technologies she finds most useful in the classroom aren't going anywhere. Realistically, Magnuson said, there's a risk these technologies might disappear, but she said she believes teaching students how to use Web 2.0 technologies is almost as important as the course material. By the end of her classes, Magnuson said, she's converted most of her skeptics. Chris-Rachael Oseland: You say there are four big Web 2.0 technologies you advocate in the classroom.
