Here’s your weekly dose of FIVER FRIDAY, a list of what I've found useful or informational this week concerning education. I'll be taking a break next week, so look for a new FIVER FRIDAY two weeks from now!
I got to meet Barb Pitchford earlier this week. Pitchford is the co-author of the informative and helpful book Leading Impact Teams. I tweeted a pic, which you can see here.
Post I'm reading--
Yuval Harari on why humans won't dominate Earth in 300 years. (Harari is the author of the book Sapiens.) This interview is fascinating, and there's a lot of food for thought for educators regarding a future we're (possibly) preparing students for.
Google organization I'm liking--
Color Code and Organize Your Google Drive. I like this idea so much--make sure you read the comments section at the end; people explain how to number more than 9 folders and still keep them in order.
Tip of the week--
EquatIO helps people type math and science in Google Docs and Forms! The linked post says that the add-on g(Math) has received an upgrade with new features and format, and it's been renamed "EquatIO." You can check out the Chrome Extension here. (This Chrome Extension has already been whitelisted in PBVUSD.)
Quote I'm pondering--
"In times of change, learners inherit the Earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists."--Eric Hoffer
