I Wonder ... About Work-Arounds

Posted on June 10, 2009 at 5:30pm 0 Comments

Today one of Clarence Fisher's thoughtful posts at his blog, Remote Access, caught my attention. The topic was work-arounds. As often happens, I found myself writing a response that grew and grew until it was too big for a comment. So I cut it in half and resolved to author my own post which builds upon what I understood Clarence to be saying:

He wonders.

Should we be teaching work-arounds as a digital skill?

detourThose of us who teach in labs do it all the… Continue

Professional Development Meme 2009

Posted on June 7, 2009 at 5:30pm 0 Comments

This meme is circulating around the edublogosphere and I thought it was very motivating. I first heard about it on Twitter, and then again from LoonyHiker at Successful Teaching and Clif Mims at ClifNotes. I wasn't tagged -- but they say anyone can participate! I invite all my readers to do so. (Are there any readers? LOL)


Summer can be a great time for professional development. It is an opportunity to learn more about a topic, read a particular… Continue

Internet Safety and Digital Natives - A Letter to Parents

Posted on April 17, 2009 at 5:30pm 0 Comments

Recent research shows that some of our most prevalent ideas about web safety are just plain wrong. The very small percentage of children who are victimized in ways related to the Internet are those who: enter private chat rooms, discuss topics of a sexual nature, or meet offline with strangers. Internet offenders pretended to be teenagers in only 5% of the crimes studied by researchers. Visiting popular social networking sites such as MySpace and Facebook do not appear to increase children’s… Continue

Lots Of Interactive Online Resources

Posted on March 30, 2009 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

I've been home on medical leave for about 10 days now and just couldn't stay away from work/educational technology any longer. My substitute needed some inspiration for this week, so I spent some time finding a great deal of online, interactive educational sites for him and then grouped them according to middle school grade level curricula at our district. Some would require more lesson planning and/or supervision than others and many are well-suited for interactive white board use. Some are… Continue

Back-To-School Tech Byte

Posted on August 8, 2008 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

I could give an excuse here about why I haven't been blogging, but the truth is I have never achieved blogging regularity and I especially wasn't motivated to do so during the summer. I continue to battle with the reality that I have nothing new to say - whenever I am inspired on a topic it seems that 5-10 people in the edublogosphere or Twitter have already discussed it and I rarely have a more original thought than theirs. I'm not sure what to do with that fact. I still plan to reflect here… Continue

A big hello from Melbourne. Yes I was checking the tweets. Always good to see new people joining in. Being a 'Twitter' or a 'Twitt' brings you into the 'Twitteratzi', I think.
I love it because I can see what others, colleagues, friends are doing - highs, lows, success and just plain what is the weather like this morning.
Easy and efficient way to find like spirits and minds - showing what you are doing - Like has happened here with us.
Thrilled to have found you. Looking forward to learning alongside of you. I may have been at all the 'e' and www stuff for a few years, but everyday I find a new treasure and my mind is blown away.
Hope you enjoy classroom 2.0 - incredible people, doing the most incredible work - all in their own time because they want to stay ahead and give the best they can to their charges.
A great place to be.
If I can do anything to help, please send me a message and I shall do what I can.
