Building Your Google Resume Last week I was asked to give a talk to our high school students about CyberSafety. A yearly talk to remind them about the Internet and their responsibility on it….or that’s how I view it anyway. I was given 5 minutes at an assembly….5 minutes to cover the whole topic of CyberSafety. So the question became how do I make an impact in 5 minutes? I decided that the best way to present what I wanted to say was to do a Pecha-Kucha. Talking about CyberSafety to high school students is a topic I always find difficult. First I knew I needed to establish a connection with them so my opening slide was this: Just the slide on the screen had the kids clapping, cheering and laughing. I simple said “Be Safe and know that everything is Public….does anyone have any questions?” All of this in 80 seconds (4 slides) to frame my real message of the day. I talked about using their blogs as a place to tell the world who they are and want to be.

Cogs of the Cognitive Processes I began to think about the triangular shape of Bloom's Taxonomy and realized I thought of it a bit differently.Since the cognitive processes are meant to be used when necessary, and any learner goes in and out of the each level as they acquire new content and turn it into knowledge, I created a different type of image that showcased my thoughts about Bloom's more meaningfully.Here is my visual which showcases the interlocking nature of the cognitive processes or, simply, the "Cogs of the Cognitive Processes".
