Right on. Most entrepreneurs want to just get on it - get their product finished and out there. I have seen a hundred times where partners did not do the work up front and it causes problems with their business life, personal life and family life. It's well worth spending the money and effort up front to avoid trouble later. 


I'm not a lawyer, but I have negotiated some huge corporate contracts as well as small business partnerships. Then you bring in the lawyers :-)

New Adventures in Professional Development | The Road to Redefinition: Teaching with iPads and Android mobile devices | Alyson Taylor | Scoop.it

"The SAMR model describes the progression educators make with technology from simply “substituting” analog tasks with digital tasks to “redefinition” which entails changing teaching and learning to the degree results were inconceivable before the invention of the technology. Investigate the progression and explore practical examples of how real teachers are accomplishing this with iPads and other Android devices."

For some time technological potential has been outstripping our imaginations' ability to process and apply it; unless we unleash our thinking, we will not be able to take full advantage of all that technology has to offer. Can we continue to apply current (or even outdated) teaching theories to an environment that is defined by an exponentially increasing rate of change? Should pedagogy always inform the choice of technology or is a more adaptive approach required? Can pedagogy evolve to adapt in step with technology? Can we as teachers?

Contemporary Green Design: Merricks House by Robson Rak Architects

Contemporary Green Design: Merricks House by Robson Rak Architects | Alyson Taylor | Scoop.it

Robson Rak Architects have designed a house on a 10-acre farm located in Merricks North near Melbourne, Australia. The property was bought as a weekender with the intention of building a new house with enough room for their family to grow and enjoy through the generations.


From the architects: 

In accordance to the client’s desire for simplicity and material honesty, the house has been reduced to a modest palette of earth, glass and timber. The majority of the internal walls are rammed earth, creating a beautiful, warm, textural look and feel.

The walls are 400mm thick with an internal strip of 100mm thick foam insulation, assisting the natural qualities of the rammed earth in maintaining a consistent internal temperature. The R-value of the walls up to a very high level, and the double-glazing of all windows and doors assists the building in being extremely environmentally efficient as attested by our clients. The high thermal mass of these walls has made the house thermally efficient. Openable windows on the east, west, north and south allows cross ventilation.

I would love to design my own place like this one day. Gerogoues, green, and contemporary. What more could you ask for?
