The top of Mickey Mantle’s plaque in Yankee Stadium’s Monument Park says nothing about Mantle’s seven championship rings, three MVP awards, or 536 homers. It reads:

Linet' Fox's curator insight, July 9, 11:53 PM

Cyberbullying is a topic that I hope soon has no relevance. According to stop bullying.gov, about 70% of young people say they have seen bullying in their schools. 28% of U.S. students in grades 6-12 have experienced bullying along with the 20% of students in grades 9-12. Approximately 30% of young people admit to bullying others in surveys.

 

A utilitarian would likely emphasize the positive aspects of online communication. Not that the bullying is unimportant, but that there are much more positive encounters via the web.

 

Deontologists favor basic human rights, thus, emphasizing the right for all individuals to remain unharmed in any way.

Is Workout Music Worth The Distraction? - Hello Healthy | Oh The Places | Scoop.it
Thinking critically and working out don’t mix well. Maybe it’s because they’re so often at odds: one action requires focus, the other relaxation. Combined, they’re a draining slog. If you don’t believe me, try listening to an audiobook while running on a treadmill. Lately, the same conceit of overcommitting our attention has got me thinking …

My New Book: Your Guide to Makerspaces @TheNerdyTeacher  #MakerEd #makerspaces

My New Book: Your Guide to Makerspaces @TheNerdyTeacher  #MakerEd #makerspaces | Oh The Places | Scoop.it
I've spent a few months putting together everything I have learned during my Maker adventures and wanted to share all of it with anyone looking to start their own Makerspace escapades at their school.

I was originally going to self publish this on Kindle and see where it goes, but two amazing people, AJ Juliani and John Spencer, reached out to me and asked if I wanted to be the first author to sign up with their new publishing company BLEND Education. After talking about my vision of the book and how they could support me, I signed up and they have helped me make an awesome book a little more awesomer. :-)

We are currently working on the formatting, layout, design, etc. of the book and we should have it all done by the start of September. This will be a physical copy of the book I've been thinking about doing for a year and am excited to go through the process of bringing it to life. As a small appetizer, I'm releasing the first chapter of the book to those that might be interested to see where I'm going with this book. By signing up below, you will be sent an email with the PDF of Chapter 1. You will receive updates, Maker tips and tricks, and other Makerspace goodies leading up to the launch of the book.
