Dr. Doug Green Says Hi From the Road to Key West

Monday, February 8th, 2016

What’s the point of being retired if you can’t go to Key West, Florida in February. I’ll post a fresh bunch of Net Nuggets tomorrow so for now, enjoy some of my Book Summaries. They will help you make purchasing decisions or internalize key concepts from books you’ve read. My Net Nugget Archives are also available. They should be very useful for researchers as well. If you just want to be entertained, check out my Humor/Music/Cool Stuff Archives. Joy to you all and God Bless. Dr. Doug

FB Gives us: Fear, Loss of Jobs & Less Teen Driving

Sunday, July 22nd, 2012

It is truly amazing how many ways Facebook impacts our culture. It causes fear for many organizations, results in real people losing real jobs, and less driving by teens, which sounds good to me. Page two suggests live streaming school events, tips for customizing learning, ignorance as a weapon, and a player piano that picks up tweets. Also check out my summary of Flip Your Classroom.

Humor, Music, & Cool Stuff Greatest Hits 2014

Tuesday, December 31st, 2013

In addition to the education and leadership resources I post daily, I always end with this grab bag category so you can have some fun, and maybe still learn something. So read through the list and have some fun. The greatest hits of my other categories were posted on previous days along with my best book summaries from 2013. Have a happy new year and thanks for your continued support.
