I'm rushing around right now after Spring Break and teaching 6 classes. Yep, I said 6. It is a struggle to keep things together, but I thought you might want to take a glance at 7 things that may interest you including national Poetry month, some Google Forms, and an interesting discussion on the privacy you can expect on open Wifi.
Today's inspirational thought is that I hope you'll be the rainbow in someone else's cloud. As teachers, we impact so many students every day. We should be the kind of people that students WANT to be around. Would you want to be around yourself? How do you handle life and your profession in general? We can all change and improve. Our subject may be hard but our face doesn't have to be. We can be the kind, loving, encouraging people that our students need us to be. You don't have to be a hugger or emotional to be someone who loves kids. They know it if you do.
Have a great day!

Google tells Supreme Court it’s legal to packet sniff open Wi-Fi networks | Ars Technica
Fascinating. But how does this impact any open school networks here? I'm wondering if this will impact schools as well? I have an open network for guests where they have to accept our terms of service, but then, we have a student network. This is one to watch, but if we provide an open network and don't disclose that people can (and probably will) steal your data.
I don't see how Google can argue this, though — there is the assumption of privacy and security of your own data and you have to give permission for Facebook, Google etc. to get your data – you don't give permission for a random stranger to see it no matter where you are. This is a stretch and a problem if it goes through.
