Half-finished or half-baked? 002

Another installment of my ongoing

series of half-finished (and quite possibly half-baked) thoughts

that are

running through my head…


  • Stand up and save time? I am guessing some (many?) school meetings would

benefit from this

    for how it should be.

  • I appreciate Scott
  • Berkun’s honesty

    regarding effective meeting management.

    The Adminwall

    I really like Jeff Utecht’s term, the “Adminwall.” This is

    exactly what

    I was talking about

    way back when (my first post ever!).

    School culture

    do YOUR administrators park?

    For all those of us who think schools should foster imagination and

    creativity, The Onion gives

    us fair warning

    Did You Know?



    and I keep getting e-mails about Did You


    I actually met someone today who hasn’t seen



    has LOTS of hits

  • Variation:Did
  • You Know? II

  • Variation:Wusstest du?
  • Variation:Do
  • You Realize?

  • Variation:Boring Videos
  • Happen

    Also on the small screen

    A couple of videos worth watching:

  • Movie


    Last, but definitely not least, LeaderTalk is off to a great start. If you

    haven’t checked it out yet, it’s a hoppin’ place…

    Have a great weekend, everyone.
