I guess these are the things I call a vacation:
I started my summer teaching a course with two colleagues in my district on Learning and Teaching with Technology. We have taught courses along this theme for 15 years, but this was the first year with a web2.0 focus. We followed that with the whirlwind experience of NECC07 and that has continued through blogs, twitters, webcasts and into Second Life. This week I have been with 21 educators at the University of Southern Maine in Alice Barr's "Read/Write Web" class. The walls of that classroom expanded beyond anything I had ever experienced before. My primary project was to build a blog that could be the site for other work I have out on the web and stored somewhere on various computers and servers so that I can find it and reflect on it for interactions with others. That blog is at http://yestech.edublogs.org
. I'd love to have readers and responders as I move this blog from a class project to my professional site.
