I’m in the midst of updating iPhone apps with iTunes. It’s amazing 1 app (Top Gun) is a 100 MB download. For a mobile device. Wow.
@morgret try the iPhone App “coupon sherpa” and see if a coupon is available for Red Robin. You can show the coupon on your phone and use it

I am delighted I was able to remove the carrier profile from my iPhone now that I’ve updated to 3.1 firmware - it killed my visual voicemail

@aschmitz thanks for letting me know about Adobe Soundbooth. I saw a demo of Audition in Jan2007 at MacWorld and was amazed.
trying to use Apple’s Soundtrack Pro to remove some projector fan background noise from a podcast…
This is an unpleasant surprise. Adobe Audition is available for Windows only, not Macs. I was going to download a trial version. Bummer.
@markbenno thanks Mark! It wasn’t exactly “under my leadership” - I was just happy to have a role working with the students! Great 2see you!

@nicolemockler I would love to hear more. The reality rarely meets the rhetoric in large rollouts, does it? Still the move seems bold.
@garystager at least they are addressing wifi infrastructure - TxTIP made absolutely no allowances for networking - big mistake to overlook
@garystager judging by the YouTube video, it would seem the vision is “this opens up a world of digital learning and collaboration”
@garystager hopefully Win7 will do better than XP on netbooks. That is the claim.

#21chk could we please get some tech support in 502/503? We need help getting room audio speakers turned on. :-)
Robyn Treyvaud just told me about http://www.foliosinterna… as an eportfolio option
#21chk so where is the teacher in this picture of “the future classroom” Andrew is showing? A teacher is not part of the diagram.
#21chk are we really looking at students in schools as integrated human beings, or more as data points and statistics more than ever?
#21chk whoa - education 2.0 was “participation” according to Andrew. What was 1.0 and 3.0?
#21chk OK good. Now we are getting the definition of Education 2.0 and 3.0
#21chk so what makes these six skill areas Andrew is talking about “21st Century Skills?” Haven’t these always been important skills?
#21chk Andrew Thomson says: most technology use up to this point has been used to automate existing processes
#21chk hearing Andrew Thomson say we need the New 3Rs of Education: Responsive communities, Relevant to students, Results Oriented
#21chk what reasons to believe the 20th century education system is broken has Andrew provided? Those OECD graphs?
#21chk what are the measurements for this graph of accountability? what is this measuring?
#21chk So who actually understands this complex graph about “accountability?” This is very difficult to decipher.
