There is one universal element that all people have to master in their life - and that is time.


Time is the great equaliser. We each have 168 hours per week with which to use our time and some people are able to achieve an extraordinary amount in that time, others not so much. Given that we all have this finite resource doesn't it make sense to try and figure out the best way to utilise your time? I have written many articles surrounding time mastery including the 8 principles of time principles and balancing priorities in the VCE and I'm passionate about finding strategies that help me to balance work, family, friends, business and health/fitness. It's never easy but it is so important for y...

For about a year now I have been using DropBox to backup, sync and store my documents between a couple of computers and my mobile phone. It's a free service that is ideal for teachers and students to protect their documents and ensure they can access them anywhere at anytime across multiple computers and even to mobile phones.


You also have the ability to share folders and resources with others, another great way for teachers to share and pool resources easily (particularly files that are greater than a few megabytes and are too big to email).


To see what DropBox is all about check out the video below:

I found this YouTube video the other day and was just fascinated with the statistics regarding globalization, our global community, the use of emerging technologies and the speed that information is being published and then superseded. It also reinforced the notion in my mind that teachers are increasing becoming learning facilitators and not dispensers of information. That I'm sure would be a paradigm shift for most teachers but is in fact a harsh reality. Get prepared for change or move out of teaching...
