Take-Off DataPoint Workshop

Take-Off DataPoint Workshop
Robin Good explains this nicely in today's newsletter: "The Take-off RSS news reader from DataPoint gathers RSS news and sends them directly into a Microsoft Access database. From there they can be easily pulled inside one or more presentation slides. Thus, you could have fresh and updated news feeds to show on your class opening presentation slide or you could display the latest relevant stock, or future prices for the very items that you have been covering in your presentation." I haven't tried it, but it's a great concept. More...

EPortfolio: Does the E mean "Exploitation?"
Some doubts and unease about portfolios are expressed in this article (as the title suggests). Asks the author, "Can we, should we, force students to publish their work online?"
