For student Technology is all around them and it's a big part of their lives every single day as educators we need to embrace this fact utilize it to enhance ___ for our students when student get the chance to use technology in the classroom I can still see their excitement we look forward to doing their assignments and learning the material if it means getting to use a piece of technology ___ students are even more excited to read a piece of text if it's on the computer or on their as opposed to ___ open a dusty book for example I've conducted reading circles in my classes before and the students looks more forward to as they can read on their phones ___ E books these instances have encourage me to embrace my students love for technology and try to incorporate it as much as possible in my classroom if the teacher can pass their students interests even if that means using technology then more learning and retention of knowledge will be have.

Ambassador Cameron Munter was the most recent ambassador to Pakistan from the United States. Posted during a time of high tensions, controversial actions taken by both sides and an ever-increasing vitriol in both American and Pakistani political circles, Islamabad is not a post many would envy. Amb. Munter takes some time to talk about outreach, religion and understanding in Pakistan.

Tags: sunny evening, happy new year, nice trip
Happy New Year everybody from my little tent in Antarctica. It's a lovely sunny evening. So I'm sitting here, I'm sitting on top of the my sleeping bag. I haven't got anything on my feet and I'm lying in my thermals because the sun shining through the side of the tent and it's really nice and warm in here, so that's a nice treat. Feel nice and warm right now so I hope that's a good omen for the year to come. But New Year's a little bit complicated in Antarctica because you can choose any timezone you want because I'm still close enough to the Pole the sun is making circles in the sky - it's not tipping to the horizon at any point. I work on Chilean time because the logistical operators (ALE) work on Chilean time so when I make my daily sched call and I let them know where I am it makes sense for me to work on the same time as them. But I could choose any time I like and so when it comes to the New Year celebration, new year on GMT has already gone - that was 9pm for me - but I usually go to sleep at 11pm, so if I wait an extra hour for New Years in my time - I don't know - just so that I can wish myself happy new year, I think I'll give that a pass, but Happy New Year to everyone else! I hope 2012 brings you everything you hope it will do. Maybe this is the year that all your dreams and ambitions start to come true. Just want to say a big thank you to everyone who supported me this year - to get me here - and given me this opportunity to make my dream and ambition come true (maybe, fingers crossed, we'll see!) A big heartfelt thank you to everyone who showed their support in my preparation to come here and also while I've been here all the messages have been overwhelming so thank you. Here's to 2012 - let's make it a good one!

Tags: afternoon class, good afternoon, straight line
Good afternoon class. I hope today is treating you well so far. I apologize for not being there and I'm at a lovely teacher's conference but I will still be teaching you about shading(?) today. Please take out a pencil and a tissue and grab a sheet of paper from the front. You'll notice the paper has six point circles. I will be showing you 4 different ways of shading so you can turn those circles into spears. You can then choose the shading method you like most and shade the 5th and 6th circle. The first type of shading is hatching. Hatching is a straight line back and forth. Think of it like a slinky(?). The second type of shading is scratch(?) hatching. There's two different ones overlapping each other like a weave basket. Next we have stippling(?). Stippling(?) is using multiple ___ of the shade. And the final type of shading is smudging(?). The

Good afternoon class. Hope your day's doing too well so far. Today we will be talking about shading with pencils so please take out your pencil and a tissue and grab a sheet of paper from the front. You will notice the paper has six blank circles. I will be showing you 4 different types of shading turn these circles into disks(?). You can then choose the one you like to move(?) and practice it on the 5th and 6th circle. The first type of shading is hatching. Hatching is just straight line back and forth. Think of it like sling key. The second type of shading is cross hatching. Just two different lines overlapping each other like a weave basket. Next we have stickling(?). Stickling(?) is using dots(?) to shade. The final type of shading is smudging(?). This is where the tissue comes in. Shading circle using the hatching technique and then rub the tissue on the page to smooth out the shading.

Tags: fort myers airport, slow circles, nice journey
The Current local time is 12:00pm so I was reminded by the PA and I'm still here in Fort Myers Airport. Yes I am in South West Regional Airport. It's an International Airport actually. Walking slowly circle around my gate before I'm gonna sit for a couple of hours flying to the sky up to about to Steve Renner in Boston. Looks like a beautiful day actually. It's quiet up in the sky but it's gonna be a nice journey North and I was wondering you know people rush to the gate so they can find a seat to seat and wait so they can get on a plane but it's a more generally what I'm waiting for a plane. I just walk slow circles around the gate and taking all the sights. There's so many drama so many pictures so many stories you know.

Trystan spent the best part of half a decade actively immersing himself in paranormal and Fortean investigations. For his efforts he emerged with headaches, lots of enemies, a sideline in hoaxing and invaluable experience of how wishful thinking can affect us all. He sat down with Hayley to talk about crop circles at a recent ‘skeptics in the pub’ talk.
Life is not fair, but even more unfair was the verdict for the mock trial. The verdict for the mock trial was not fair for 3 reasons. The first reason being the prosecution attorneys were not nearly as organized as ourselves, the defense. My second reason is the fact that our questioning was far more for persuasive and effective in regard to proving our points. They simply stumbled around: never got to the point. They had been questions but they never went to the point. They were walking around the circles, stumbling over their own questions. It was embarrassing for them. My opponent may say that most questions are only asked by 3 main attorneys and this proves that we have a weak defense but this is untrue. We planned and organized to be that way because we knew it would be better for ourselves and we felt that this would prove that we are stronger defense and they a weaker prosecution. In the end I wish for you to realize that we won due to the fact that the prosecution attourneys weren't as organized as the defense and our questioning was far more persuasive and effective in regards to proving our points.
