If I were marooned on a desert island with only one app for my iPhone or iPad this would be it!

I discovered TED Talks a few years ago and began sharing it with my students. Watching great speakers at work is a marvelous way for students to learn how to deliver their own presentations. Besides, the ideas presented are well worth sharing.

Part 1: The Mystery of the Milky Way (52:55)

You expect great programming from PBS & NOVA and that's what exactly they deliver in this first of a two-part series on the state of the art in astronomy.

The cinematography is stunning on an iPhone with its abilities to display rich vibrant colors in high definition. The sound is truly superior using the built-in speaker but it blew me away when I listened through earphones. The bass of the narrators voice came through loud and clear.

One of the best things about being the coach is that you get to call the shots.  Growing up playing sports and with a brother who has done so as well, I have been around several coaches and I know that the task is not easy.  Have you ever wanted to plan the plays yourself?  Well, here is your chance.
