Busy updating my stuff....

A couple of updates:

1) I've changed the name of my blog from A Teacher's Life to High Techpectations. There's another Teacher's Life out there now, and frankly, the title was just booooooring. Not sure if I like my new one yet, but time will tell. You can find the blog at

2) Last fall, I started a ning for teachers within my organization. This ning thing was new to everyone, and by keeping it private, we just didn't have the numbers to drive… Continue

Developing Our Own Standards for Global Education

Over at the Global Education Collaborative ning, I've suggested that we start building our own set of standards on global ed for students, pre-service teachers, teachers, and administrators.

getting started.… Continue
