  9. 5 Things We Learned About Google’s Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg Last Night It was a night of kings of comedy and tech. Stephen Colbert moderated a discussion with Google execs Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg on September 23 in front of a packed house. The conversation ranged from Google’s upcoming products, national security, and Schmidt and Rosenberg’s new book, How Google Works. Here are 5 things we learned about the Google guys.
To get a job at Google, you have to be interviewed by “no more, no less” than five people. Schmidt and Rosenberg found that out the hard way after a candidate was interviewed 18 times before being rejected. They then created the five interview rule.
Google has a dress code, but it’s a simple one. “You have to wear, something,” Schmidt said, noting that Google once had a “pants problem.”
Google has developed a contact lens for people with diabetes. Schmidt says the company will release the product soon, which will notify the wearer of his insulin levels.
What’s the most ambitious thing Google is working on (that they could tell us about)? Super-fast Internet for every house. “A gigabit is like taking drugs,” Schmidt said of the connection speed Google is poised to deliver.
Porn helped make Google better. In efforts to figure out how to filter pornographic results out of searches, Rosenberg said Google developers discovered how to make searches more accurate.
(And one bonus!) Schmidt throws shade at Apple. “That looks like the Samsung phone of last year,” Schmidt said when Colbert pulled out his iPhone 6.

  10. TuesdayTip: How to Create a Graphic Organizer, for Dance Educators
Here’s a Teaching Tool for your Tuesday Tip, courtesy of the Dance Education Laboratory (DEL), celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, at the 92Y Harkness Dance Center.
Create A Graphic Organizer. A graphic organizer is a visual representation of complex concepts. Sometimes words are not enough to convey a series of thoughts. A graphic organizer can reinforce the text and words that a teacher uses. A graphic organizer can effectively sort and connect ideas for those students who are strong visual or spatial learners or who may have a verbal or language challenge.

1. A Venn Diagram compares and contrasts elements.
2. A Time Line shows the relationship of events over time.
3. A Space Map places ideas in a flat (two-dimensional) plane.
4. A Family tree illustrates shared traits derived from a common or shared source.
5. A Graphic Organizer can also define a model for teaching, as in the Dance Education Laboratory Model (above).
If you want to learn more about the DEL Model, join us for the DEL Open House on Sunday, September 28, 1:30-5:30pm at 92Y. RSVP today!
