I just spent the past 7 days on Royal Caribbeans Allure of the Seas.The largest cruise Ship in the World. It's about 4 football fields long! Cost of this ship is 1.4 Billion dollars!
I met Captain Johnny, and just had to buy this book. I also had to read it while I was on his ship. This book tells a great story about a boy who grew up in a small fishing village in Norway. Captain Johnny talks about the importance of family, and how values like treating others as…

Then I tried Ning last year with the yearbook class, and also introduced it to the high school English teacher. He was happy to have this option,…Continue

It's amazing that every time we catch up with technology our needs and technology itself grows more complicated.
This is my second year at a Mac school. Some of the resources we have are impressive: MacBooks for every teacher, Smartboards in every classroom, a classroom set of MacBook carts for each floor in the main building, video cameras, microphones, point and shoot cameras, plus four DSLR cameras, and a computer lab with 24 iMacs.
But we also have to deal with limited…Continue

If you didn't know, I really enjoy watching short videos. In particular, I really enjoy watching videos that get me thinking and reflecting on my educational practices and beliefs. I have been using short videos in Professional Development sessions to get educators at my high school talking and discussing issues related to education. This is the third installment of the series..."videos that WILL ignite a discussion." I encourage you to check out…Continue

I already had some experiences as a graduate assistant during my time as a Ph.D. student so it was not very difficult. I think I did quite a good job designing new experiments, interacting with the students and helping them with the experiment and marking the lab report. During the first few months, I had to attend induction courses including one or…Continue
