Happy Monday! I actually want to start this post with something my friend Paul R Wood
@paulrwood said on Twitter last week. Paul is a technology director at a private high school in Texas and a great person who really cares about his work.
I may be the best thing that happens in my students and my staff's lives that day. I can handle the other stuff. They come first
Something to remember. Are you the best thing that happens to your students? For a student interested in computer science you could easily be that.
@dougpete pointed me to this cool article. Hacker Uses A Kinect To Help His Mom Email After A Stroke Now this is out of the box thinking used for good. This is the sort of thing that hacking used to mean and should/could again.
@coolcatteacher Talked about the Natural User Interface - which Kinect is a part of – in her lesson on Evolution of the Interface Do you talk about various ways of interacting with the computer with your students?
"What do you think you can do with Computer Science?" Best answer ever

Why Estonia Has Started Teaching Its First-Graders To Code on Forbes. Interesting idea. A wonder how it will play out in the long run.
The Computer Science Teachers Association announced that the "We are the Faces of Computing" Poster Contest Launches! You may have students interested in helping improve the image of computing. Pass this along.
