Twitter This! -- my Twitter song

I wrote this as my students were writing their own songs. I also wanted to experiment to see how far the song might travel along various networks, so feel free to pass the link along through your networks.


Listen to the song:

My Webcomic about the Digital Divide: Boolean Squared


A webcomic that I developed as a creative writing outlet is now being published as a weekly feature at the regional newspaper in my area. The comic -- called Boolean Squared -- is all about education, technology and the perceptions of kids and adults. Essentially, I see the comic as a way to poke fun at myself.

You can view the comic at the newspaper site and then I will be archiving them over at my… Continue

Inviting You to Contribute to Day in a Sentence

This was a feature started by another blogging teacher, who decided to stop blogging, and I have taken on this weekly feature called Day in a Sentence, in which teachers boil down their week or a day in their week into one concise statement.

We have about a dozen regular contributors and I want to invite YOU (that's right, you) into the mix.

Here is how it works:

Loose Ends from a Conference

I had the pleasure of being a keynote speaker (my first time!) at a conference around technology and writing at the Hudson Valley Writing Project on Saturday. It was a wonderful group of teachers and soon-to-be-teachers who were interested in this convergence of technology and writing in the classroom.

In the interest of sharing, here is my keynote address (if I cut out my Ummms and Uhhhhs, it would probably be about 10 minutes shorter than it is). Anyway, here is the podcast of my… Continue

K12 Online Conference -- a new adventure

My friend, Bonnie, and I are presenting at this year’s K12 Online Conference and we hope to show folks how we used the tools of Web 2.0 to create a learning environment for other educators as part of our Collaborative

ABC Movie Project. We’re a bit mystified about how the conference will

go but we are confident we can handle it, and already have some great

ideas brewing for folks who “attend” our virtual workshop.…

Claymation Camp -- an overview

I am now in my second week of running a claymation-animation camp for middle school students. This is an experiment of sorts and yet, it seems to be going great. The kids are very engaged, the tech seems to be working fine, and parents are thrilled by the excitement of their children in our program.

If you are interested in the plan of action (not quite a curriculum, really) that I have been following, you can view this… Continue
