Kingston Springs Elementary

NBC continues to travel around the country renovating America’s schools on their hit show School Pride. This week, the team headed to Tennessee to save Kingston Springs Elementary.

Comparable to previous episodes, Former Miss USA and Designer Susie Castillo, Comedian Kim Whitley, Political Journalist Jacob Soboroff and Team Leader and Voice Over Host Tom Stroup, come together to spearhead the restoration project of the school.

Renovated from July 22-July 28, 2010, the Kindergarten through 4th grade public elementary school closed in early May of this year due to flood water damage.

NBC’s School Pride Premieres with Enterprise Middle School in Compton, California

Enterprise School KidsThe premiere episode of School Pride features Enterprise Middle School in Compton, California, and in true NBC fashion, it begins similar to the NBC hit The Biggest Loser. With dramatic photos, voice overs, chilling scenes of failure, and an eventual comment about how America is undergoing an epidemic of inadequate educational institutions and programs, viewers needed to grab tissues from the opening scene.

It was heartbreaking to see children and teachers with so much passion for scholastic success, but no means to assist them in their endeavors.

For every episode, Former Miss USA and Designer Susie Castillo, Comedian Kim Whitley, Political Journalist Jacob Soboroff and Team Leader and Voice Over Host Tom Stroup, come together to spearhead the restoration projects. Read the rest of this entry »



Google Application Education Edition to be Used in Oregon Public Schools

Google AppsOregon’s Department of Education  recently announced that they will now offer the Google Application Education Edition to all of the public school districts in the state budding from an effort to save the schools $1.5 million dollars annually.

The application allows teachers to access Gmail, Google Docs, and programs for spreadsheets, presentations, calendars, and video hosting remotely, specifically from their classrooms, computer labs, homes, city libraries and other places.

One looming problem however is the potential of server failures or power outages that could potentially result in inaccessible data.

Despite that potential drawback, analyst Melissa Webster says, “the growth in adoption of Google Docs should worry Microsoft. Google’s momentum could indirectly threaten some of Microsoft’s Office 2010 upgrade revenue by providing buyers some negotiating leverage. And in the longer term, the two are on a collision course.”

Recently, the city of Los Angeles also announced that the city’s 30,000 employees will be switching from Novell GroupWise to the Google App as well.
