Remember this week when I said one reason I show you TED talks is to expand your minds? Here’s a good example of that. It’s really short. Just watch it and you’ll get what I was saying.


Tech Tip

I shared this with the teachers but it just occurred to me that many of my students (and their parents) might benefit from this just as much as the teachers. One thing my husband always continually taught me about computers was to back up everything, in multiple places. This is a great free online book that walks you through the how’s and why’s of backing up data. It’s written in plain English and the author did a great job laying things out clearly. I hope you look at it and follow the advice of backing up your stuff!

Blogs In Plain English

Common Craft is a company that makes explanatory videos in a cute simple way. This one about blogs is ESSENTIAL viewing for all of my new students.  It’s only 2 1/2 min. long and will help you understand what a blog really is.  I might even have a pop quiz next week based on the information.

And while your there browse around. They have some great informative stuff.
