My first project is going to be SKYPE in the Classroom. I have been using SKYPE for years for personal communication, but I want to use it in the classroom to give our students the opportunity to go global!

What I Think About PLNs

I would like to think I am decent with understanding technology. I mean, I use a SMART Board and document camera in my classroom.

So I know I have a ton to learn about these networks and I am very excited, since after reading and viewing all the information about them I know how educational and effective they… Continue

Gatha is a Sanskrit term meaning "verse" or "hymn". In Buddhist literature it is used to designate the versified portion of the sutras. Chinese scholars have adopted this word for their Versified

collected here are not exclusively those of the Zen sect;…

The 3 Magicians

This was originally posted on The Freshman Transition Network.

Don’t you get tired of dealing with nothing… Continue
