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 speech around the World of Web 2.0 in education.

And finally, I helped out with a digital storytelling workshop that introduced PhotoStory3 to people, and I wanted so badly to create something along with them instead of being the troubleshooter that I went home and created this little movie. The concept was to choose a famous person, write a short poem, collect some photos and put together a story. I created a poem about Charlie Parker.
