  3. BYOD: It’s not as scary as some make it seem

    As many schools and business look to deploy a BYOD solution hoping to answer their end-device management problems, most will come across white-papers and marketing literature that attempts to convince decision makers of the challenges BYOD presents and potential business risks that are created as a result of BYOD programs.

  4. Schools that work for kids – Eric Sheninger – TEDxBurnsvilleED

    For those who work in the education sector, please check out this video. Fortunately, the school where I work has embraced much of the suggestions mentioned in this talk.

  5. Ken Robinson: How to escape Education’s Death Valley

    For some reason I hadn’t posted this video. I have had it sitting in my drafts for more than a year; I might have planned to write an editorial and just never got around to it. By any count Sir.

    The last 6 months have been extremely busy for me with many projects on my agenda; unfortunately the blog received the least priority and finding time to post new content has been difficult.
