On a personal note, it's been a great start to the month as I had a write-up in the Post-Gazette (the local Pittsburgh paper) on the Gamification units in my class over the past year and the PBS Digital Innovator Award. I don't get the newspaper anymore (I already know the news by the time I get home to read it) but it's very exciting to be in the paper I used to read all the time growing up. Additionally, the iPads and the iMac from the Sprout Grant finally came in yesterday. Sadly, it's too late for the seniors to get much use out of them but the juniors will get full access starting early next week! I look forward to having some stories to write about their iPad exploits.
So despite the connotations of strife and disaster, this Mayday is actually one to remember. Here's to a great month! And when it's all over....hey, it's still only June.
