Week of September 4 – 10, 2010

Welcome to the EdTechTalk this week’s newsletter. Throughout the world, people are commemorating the ninth quintanomedia's flickr photostreamanniversary of the tragedy of September 11th. While searching for images online in honor of 9/11, I came across this quote and believe it is fitting for commemorating September 11th and other pivotal events in our lives and careers :

"There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief…and unspeakable love."
— Washington Irving

While we will never forget what happened on 9/11, we must also not forget the reason we create, write, share and teach others around the world. We all have different talents, skills, and goals and together we are a stronger unified force to shield, teach and inspire our students. With the start of the new school year for many educators in North America, we must always be mindful of our purose and reason for doing what we do. We must never forget.
