Last week our state had our annual SC Edtech Conference in Greenville, SC, just up the road from me.  It’s a great conference that is timely, as it’s still close enough to the beginning of school to actually “try out” anything new you get from the conference. I had take-aways from every session and/or event, […]

I saw this early this morning from The Principal of Change and it really struck me as I reflect over my attendance yesterday of the Upstate Technology Conference sponsored by Greenville County School District (Grenville, SC).  I love this conference as much as some other ones I attend.

School has resumed, and quite frankly I’ve been a BUSY GIRL!!  I’ve had many personal life changes, and throw in the mix an addition to my professional responsibilities, and that makes for a little chaos in my life right now.  Finally though things are beginning to settle down. I’m going to use this space to […]

In South Carolina, teachers are annually assessed based on a “goals-based evaluation” (GBE) that we as teachers work with an assigned administrer to plan and implement as our own method of growing in our profession.  It’s kind of cool if you think about–innovative and definitely a think out of the box approach to assessing educators, […]

So I’m sitting here tonight listening/viewing the Alan November keynote from the SIGMS Breakfast at ISTE.  During this keynote he polled the audience to see how many were familiar with Eli Pariser, his book, and/or the Ted Talks video.  Oh my, only maybe THREE acknowledged awareness of it.  I blogged it May 8, 2011 and […]
