21st Century Skills: Learning for Life in Our Times by Bernie Trilling & Charles Fadel  - This discussion with the Author Charles Fadel regarding 21st Century skills and his new book was started last month.  Many mentioned reading the book and coming back to discuss with the author.  Do you have any new thoughts after reading the book?  If so come back and share. 


“The Lonely Tech Gadget” Photo Activity - Do you still have a two button mouse without a scroll wheel?  How about a laser disc machine?  Perhaps an original Palm Pilot?  Enter your photos for a drawing of a NEW Flipcam for your tech gadget collection.  Simply post your image to the thread.
