Hope you're safe and sound

To all those of you in Southern California impacted by the fires, my thoughts and prayers go out to you. I was evacuated for a couple of days, but am very lucky to have a home to return to. When we finally go back to school, I look forward to helping students try to get back to normal. Thanks to all the firefighters, law enforcement personnel, and relief workers who are working so hard!

They have what?

I've back in school since mid-August, but the nearby San Diego City School district just started.

And so it begins...

Whether you are starting early like we are or still have a few weeks to go, best wishes for a great new year!

Classroom 2.0 was a great find!

I've only been on Ning and Classroom 2.0 a few days and already I have enough new ideas to try, concepts to consider, and preconceived notions to rethink that I'll be busy for months!

Also...very cool to come across so many of the people behind some of my favorite ed tech blogs. I've been exposed to some great new ones too. This is the kind of desire for learning/thinking/questioning/sharing I hope I (and all of us) can inspire in students as well as fellow educators who less than…

Quote 7/19/07 #2

The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
Herbert Spencer (1820-1903)

Maybe this is where 2.0 comes into play. If we teach them in an interactive, collaborative way then maybe we can put them on course for using the learned knowledge and skills into positive and valuable use in the world.

Quote 7/19/07

Education's purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one.

Malcolm Forbes (1919 - 1990), in Forbes Magazine

I've decided to use this blog space (at least for now) to include the words of others I think are useful to think about, whether as something to aspire to or as something to avoid. This one, of course, is something I try to keep in mind each day. Teaching students to THINK is…
