This is a guest post from Greg Kulowiec of EdTechTeacher.org, an advertiser on Free Technology for Teachers. 

Publishing student video that is created with iPads can be a challenging process, especially with younger students. Even schools that are Google Apps typically decide to turn off YouTube uploads to the student accounts. However, with the use of a handful of free applications, students can create video content on iPad, share their creation with a teacher, and then have the teacher upload to their YouTube channel or a class YouTube channel.

Jennifer Ryan discusses "Cohousing" communities on CNN

Jennifer Ryan has lived in cohousing communities for the past 6 years. www.cohousing.org www.hesternet.net Shot live at Beyond Pix Studios in San Francisco, ...
Bridget Bengtson's insight:

This cohousing community was meant for an aging community, if they included people with disabilities such as autism they could bring youth and strength of body back into the community.  Pairing people with opposing medical and social needs is a great way to benefit both groups of people and lift financial burden from social security.

Karla Begley's Touching Response To Hate Letter Targeting Her Son With Autism

Karla Begley, the mother whose son with autism was the subject of a shockingly disturbing hate letter is taking a stand against intolerance and hate.
