Why You Can't Think Too Much!!!!
Ok, I don't think I have journaled on Tom Friedman's book "The World is Flat yet, have I? When I was off for the 9 weeks after my foot surgery in the fall of 2005 I was surfing the channels as I was laying in the lazy boy with my foot up & came across the National Governor's Association's Conference on C-Span. The Governor from MI was introducing Tom & it intriqued me. Man, talk about BLOWING MY MIND! Which quite frankly takes a lot & I get so high on that! Best Drug for me! I love men that can do that to me! To me, stimulating my brain is just as good if not better than sex! Ok, well an extremely close 2nd! Well, as I tell my students sex is at the brain level & that is why stress causes problems in that department! HA! Ok, before I totally lose it here...back to Tom...HA!
He is a 2 time Pulitzer Prize Winner! His book just went expanded into Education & is now over 500 pages...no I have not finished it yet! Watch the speech I heard him give & tell me what you think!
What made me think to share this is my cousin sent me an email with another mind blowing wake up call! Watch This! This is just incredible too. Any student who tells me I am doing too much technology is going to get it! It is just amazing! I'm thinking of my nieces & what their world will be like. I think I should go get my PhD in Technology? HA! I'd never be out of a job & heck we know there probably will not be any social security by the time I retire & with a teacher's retirement??? At least I could still work & know the latest technology when I'm older! HA!
Well, love to hear what you think after you watch them. As I get into the book I'll share what I learn.
