As Summer into Autumn slips
And yet we sooner say
"The Summer" than "the Autumn," lest
We turn the sun away,(...)

Emily Dickinson, As Summer into Autumn slips

Autumn is back. It's the time to say good bye to the walks on the beach. And today it's raining. Just to remind us that Summer ends.Not a nice time to go outside for a walk as I usually do when the time is nice.

I can't finish this post without remember Steve Jobs. Yesterday, October 5 exactly three years ago Steve Jobs left us. But his legacy will last forever. Steve not only created one of the world's most valuable enterprise but his perspective on technology in education (iPads) have and will continue to inspire us to teach using technology to enhance learning. On his third death anniversary, here my tribute. 

Here is the Steve jobs inspiring speech which teaches most important life lesson for students, entrepreneurs, teachers, employees and everybody else. 

"Focus on what you have in order to create what you want."
Steve Jobs
Wherever you are, don't lose your joy and spontaneity of teaching. Teaching is a challenging job with many unique frustrations, but the rewards of teaching are numerable. Keep that in mind.

I'm back to posting the normal roundup this week.
