Five Tech Things on a Friday v.11

Happy Friday everyone!  Welcome to this week's edition of Five Tech Things on a Friday.  In reality, this is more like four tech things and a (cat) video I happen to like.
  • I enjoyed this thoughtful post on 14 Things That Are Obsolete in 21st Century Schools.  The list includes a variety of topics such as Isolated Classrooms, Unhealthy Lunches, and Computer Labs.  Do you agree with this post?  What do you consider to be obsolete in 21st century schools?
  • While I was at the ICE conference a few weeks ago, I learned about WeVideo, and I have been having a great time playing around with it.  WeVideo is basically like iMovie, but you use it in your browser.  There is even a Chrome App for WeVideo.  Check out this awesome video editing tool!
  • Have you googled yourself lately?  What did you find?  Good things...not so good things...nothing at all?  These days have no digital footprint can be just as detrimental as having a bad digital footprint.  What do you want people to find when they search for you?  Check out this great resource from George Couros on why and how to build your digital footprint.  George also highlights his own digital footprint on his website.
  • Finally, it's Friday...the sun is shining...and we can all use a good inspirational cat video from time to time.
