First impressions: I’ve been playing around in Google Plus for several days. I don’t know if someone invited me in (I never really saw an invite, but just noticed the day Google Plus was released my Google Toolbar changed.) I had the “different” toolbar for days before I even realized what it was and why [...]
Thank you Mark Moran for piquing my interest at the Sweet Search Booth in the Exhibit Hall at ISTE.

I’ve had this conversation with kids (even my own) frequently, and generally it winds up being an argument that is pointless. The kids tell me it is so easy, will never end, and can’t be stopped, and not only that [...]
Wow we have so many choices or professional development this week, I feel like my head is SPINNING. David Loertscher David Loertscher will be in Second Life Tuesday at 8PM. Read about it here! Not comfy with Second Life? Me either, but I will be there as Bentley Noel, trying desperately to appear normal and [...]
It’s just around the corner! The 3rd annual K12 Online Conference. I just saw this tonight from my reader. I hope to put a few fliers out at school. The preconference keynote is scheduled for October 13, and then over the next two weeks there will be 40 downloadable sessions, either in video or podcast [...]
