Try Something New
Trying something new always poses some sort of risk, whether its real or just imaginary. I try to stay low profile due to already living in a "fish bowl" in some aspects of my life. I decided to try twitter. I actually like it. I don't think I would really use it to tweet random thoughts because I don't want to make a habit of randomly sharing my thoughts with the world. I do find it useful for networking and entertainment.
I also tried Khan academy for more than just wonderful educational videos. Khan Academy actually has a program that assigns problems to students and prescriptive videos to watch for explanation of how to solve the problems. Students actually love it and we have made it competitive. I have seen the kids grow so much from using the program.
