AutoSkill Update:
Nancy Arnold is the AutoSkill contact, along with IT expert, Jeff Brandon. The AutoSkill Company has switched over to a web-based application and has upgraded both Reading and Math software. Therefore, teachers must attend the AutoSkill training on Nov. 10th to get programs uploaded and get administrative passwords as well as learning how to use the new programs.

Cool Resource:
Found this cool resource from the University of Wisconsin "50 uses for Kidspiration & Inspiration"

Quote of the Week:

"Real success is finding your lifework in the work that you love." ~ David McCullough

That is a great list! It is something that we might want to use at our classes for Inspiration and Kidspiration.
I just finished reading Blink. It's a pretty good read. I could read a hundred pages in that book in the same amount of time I could read 20 in The World is Flat. I am committed to finishing Flat this week and will be ready to pass it on.
Instructional Tech Library Update:
Will: Returned Blink, Checked out Working on the Work
Betsy: Checked out Whole New Mind
Jer: Checked out Got Game?
Brenda: Checked out World is Flat, Returned Blink
I added the University of Wisconsin Inspiration/Kidspiration website to our electronic Inspiration/Kidspiration document! Thanks Glen!
The newsletter came today.

I sent out a message to the remaining schools to tell them about our upcoming ICS and laptop support.

Betsy and I are working on unitedstreaming. First class tomorrow.

Working On the Work is one of the most boring books I've ever opened. I find the author to be accusatory, condescending, and repetitive. I agree with many of the ideas presented in the book, but object to the tone and the manner in which they're presented.
I made a major step toward progress for my PGO. I have an appt. with Krista Scioli to discuss the current digital resources used in secondary libraries.

I love my team.
