One of the great things about Gmail is also one of its worst features if you don't know about it. Gmail has predictability through Artificial Intelligence. This is just a fancy way of saying that over time, your gmail account begins to learn about your email trends. If you receive loads of email from a person and you rarely open those emails, Gmail starts to think that those emails are spam and puts them in the spam folder automatically. Within our domain, Claudia sends a lot of important emails to everyone, so her account is already flagged as "troublesome." Claudia is simply doing her job and Gmail is simply doing its job, but if you haven't read some of Claudia's emails -- they could be going to your spam folder. This video will show you how to avoid that problem by creating an email filter.

The next piece of information that is always compelling to me are the what browsers and what operating systems. How in the world is 34% of the traffic coming from Internet Explorer? Seriously? Why would someone still be using it? I mean I know it is popular here in Korea, but only 57 viewers to my blog were from Korea, which means another 416 people from other places were using it. Strange. I dumped that browser years ago and I'm not going back people. Seriously folks, join the rest of us on Chrome and Firefox. I'm not surprised by the 65% from Windows operating system. Disappointed, but not surprised. I'm disappointed because that many people still opt for an inferior product, but I guess that is life and it explains the Internet Explorer situation.

Some of the five day teacher challenge didn't fit my current job, because I'm not in a classroom everyday with students. But a few of the challenges did fit and here is the first one. Last week, I was supporting the music and drama teachers with recording performances for them to display on their websites, for students to use on their portfolios, and for detailed assessment. These were of a few of the performances that I especially enjoyed.

The last chat session on Twitter with #isedcoach was on the ISTE Standards for Coaches; specifically it was about Standard 1: Visionary Leadership. After reflecting on the chat for a few days, I wanted to revisit the topic of visionary leadership.
- What is visionary leadership?
- How does one become a visionary leader?
