Interesting Links 18 February 2013

Another snowy weekend in New Hampshire for me. Not a bad thing as I had a lot of grading to catch up on. But today is a holiday for my school (Washington's Birthday) so I hope to get out into the woods on my snow shoes. I have been a lot more introspective lately and posting more “think pieces” such as Drive Fear Out of the Classroom and perhaps less of links and discussions of projects and resources. Just the way things are these days. If you run into something worth sharing I hope you will share them with me. Leave a blog comment, send me a tweet (@Alfredtwo) or send me an email ( And now for some things I did pick up last week.

Doug Bergman @dougbergmanUSA was interviewed and had a video up last week.  “There is tremendous energy around games"

Microsoft Partners in Learning pointed me to this interesting video on Accessibility in Education via @MicrosoftPIL

The Central NY CSTA running a one-day introduction to Bootstrap, generously hosted by SUNY Oneonta  Saturday, March 9, 2013, 9am-4pm

Do you like interesting quotes? I have since I was a kid. I read several last week:

  • "Before software can be reusable it first has to be usable." -- Ralph Johnson h/t @HPCodeWars
  • Programmers should look at Excel with wonder over how it empowers non-technical people, not w/ derision cuz they produce bugs. (via @tlack)

Once again I have updated The Focus Finding Outstanding Classrooms Using Social Media) with Don Wettrick’s latest FOCUS show with Special Guest Vicki Davis @CoolCatTeacher

Taking it out of the classroom. Cool new outreach program via @zamansky More at Something more schools can replicate? I think maybe so.
