Something to think about…

Let’s teach our students how to make great passwords - The how-to from CyberWise for you and your students. I like the idea of a phrase or song title to give you a starting point. +CyberWise1  http://www.cybercivics.com/#!blog-/cd1p


It's your turn to help us choose the five National Finalists! Voting on Doodle 4 Google is open now through Feb. 22.

Resources…



Mobile Manners (3/4 of 10) ways to bring back phone etiquette and become more personal. I know I need reminders at times...this is one of my New Year’s Resolutions. I’ll include 2 each week for 5 weeks. Thank you +CyberWise1 http://www.cyberwise.org/#!10-Rules-for-Good-Phone-Manners-in-2016/c1aod/56a7c2750cf229630713ca99
3. Keep phone conversations private: No one wants to listen to the latest drama in the grocery store or hear a business deal in a movie theater.  If the call has to be taken, excuse yourself and leave the area.

4. Answer a text in a timely manner: If you can't answer back, don't forget to!  Let the person know you'll respond to them and do so.

When people see themselves in the mirror, the chances of them to behave irrationally lowers significantly. That's why it's a good practice to have a mirror behind the counter at a bar or customer service of any kind. http://instanerd.me/

When super glue starts to stick to your fingers, it can become troublesome very quickly. Instead of trying to pull the skin apart you can use one homemade remedy. First dip your fingers in water and put a small pile of salt on the super glue, then add some more water on the salt and rub the salt into the glue for about 1 minute until it looks like white paste. After that wash your hand and the glue should be gone.  http://instanerd.me/
