Addition to Workshop Calendar Invites

In my ongoing effort to ensure that my information and "services" are getting out to staff, I am going to start adding my weekly agenda to my workshop calendar invitations each week. The intention is to provide you with one email a week that has everything that you would need to know for that given week, including when I'll be covering the workshop for your prep time. My weekly agenda covers information about what happened the prior week with links to my webinars that I make, what I'm covering during the current week and when I will be where, and also additional announcements that I want folks to be aware of (such as laptop checks or how to get an AppleTV). I had previously just posted it in my blog, but I hope also including it this way it helps to keep you better informed!

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
