This won’t be relevant to many k12 teachers, but I so rarely see an article like this that I couldn’t help but share it!
Here is another gem – my google alerts are really starting to pay off. I think the title says it all… and it was started by a school teacher and her web master husband. :)
WOW! This is really catching on. Like the story I FURLed earlier today about the school board trustee, this is another example of a high level elected official making themselves available to their people. What an amazing insight into the way our country’s government operates this will be! Oh, and this was another google alert gem brought to me while I was working on my own blog.
This story suggests an awesome level of empowerment for – and a connection between – the highest levels of an educational institution, and the people they serve. Hallelujia. BTW, this came to me from a google alert while I was working. ;)

It looks like one of my peers has been very busy writing about gender and video games. This apge includes lots of great titles, links, and hints about what else is out there. BTW, this was brought to me by an MSN Search RSS feed while I slept. ;)
Thanks to David Brussin for this find…. another bit for games in education enthusiasts.
