Yeah. It's really great. I was a Chef for 7 years whilst studying and decided to teach it for a living. Not looked back since. I've been trying (where possible) to fit web2.0 into my teaching. It really excites me the many endless possibilities of technology providing you keep current and up to date. I'm really looking forward to being part of your community!
Hello Brian --thanks for the note --yes China is, was, a wonderland for me...Among other things I met my wife there... I miss it! However, I'm going back for a loong visit this summer --where did you live and work when you were there?
I noticed your comment right after I changed my photo! I bought one of the mini "kite-trains" in Beijing. I'm going to try it out with my students this month. I'm trying to scrape together plane fare to teach in China (near Qingdao) this summer, but times are tough.
I left the same comment for Larry F as I hold both your blogs in high regards so don't feel bad ;-)
Well, I have giving up the battle of creating a custom blog in Rapid Weaver. My limited understanding of HTML and CSS, combined w/ the RSS feed from my worst nightmare and lack of patience; has persuaded me to use one of the more popular blog tools out there.
If you scroll down you will see my fav blog post.
Keep up the great work, you're an inspiration to us all and I look forward to reading your posts daily!!!
What an honor, that some people do know Belgium :-) Always welcome for some Belgian Fries, chocolates, beers,...
I'm reading the variuos blog posts of the last few weeks. Classroom 2.0 is a vibrant teacher-community.
Here in Belgium technology is finding finally its way in some classes and schools...!
Finishing was great, but I'll tell you, being surrounded by people who are constantly throwing new ideas and tools at you cannot be replicated. I am envious of that part of you still being in the program; not envious of the projects and homework. Stick with it, you'll make it through and it will definitely be worth it.
Hi Brian. I was wondering if you and your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
Brain are you still looking for schools to do a day in the life video. I am in Alaska and could help you out. I do not teach upper elem, but lower, but I might be able to find some to help you. Let me know.
In that case, thankyou! I am pretty new to teaching using online tech stuff and have really immersed myself into trying to learn as much as possible about it all - my head is spinning! I have recently got into reading blogs and am trying to find which blog reader is best and how it all works.
