The Wait (WEIGHT)

As summer winds down, I am once again excited about what technology has to offer, -especially in education. I love the interactive white boards, updated phone systems, and of course internet open source software. I locate these at home on my home computer and excitedly develop and share and swap ideas with other like-minded people online. But when I return to the workplace, the filter blocks these sites, or ITT just can't make them function within the network, "configuration issues" . Then… Continue

Welcome Back Folks(onomy)

While creating a new(ish) word for practical purpose, an older, less contemporary word is brought out of mothballs just in time to be revived by original definition. For example, I recall the TV network Nickelodeon which came to being several decades ago. In general, it runs children’s programming.
