Why You Still Keep Blogging

No need to say all bloggers are human being with feelings and the ego everyone carries in a different levels. The central question is, Why Do I Blog? Change Agency sum it up, I open up myself — my practices, my thoughts, my questions, my mistakes (my “lessons learned”) — to others… and I open up the opportunity for others to call me on all of these things — to push my thinking — to hold me accountable for the changes that I say I will make in my practice…. I doesn't matter you write properly (as you should always) you still might want to tolerate yourself your own mistakes, but if not, then of course other fellas will jump in and are going to let you know. I am not for the popularity but ideas like these kept me trying hard almost everyday.

In Kearny (NJ) a teacher was caught by one of his students with a practice not allowed in this location; now some New Jersey school districts have announced a new policy banning students from recording their teachers after an incident occurred at one of their schools this fall.

Practical Theory is one of those blogs that I try to find and dig into. It is said that contents in this blog are very close of what we call Web 2.0 Patronage is provided from The School District of Philadelphia, through its Science Leadership Academy.

Laptops are no much help for our students a new study says, students who brought in laptops to class spent considerable time e-mailing, surfing the Internet and playing games, posing a "significant" distraction to both users and fellow students. I don't completely agree on this but certainly a laptop in a teen hands wouldn't be much academic help. Same is happening as you all know with the powerful cell phones with all the stuff that they have included, which is more than music, though.

I've subscribed long ago for Zoho. Never came back. However, I am thinking to back off Microsoft Office after watching this demonstrative video about the Goodness of Zoho. Speaking of school tools, please take your time and check who is trying Lulu and why should keep an eye on this free online book publishing.
