So Saturday morning at 8:00 AM, my AASL committee culminated its year of work with the announcement of the 25 Best Websites for Teaching and Learning. I have friends tell me all the time they are so tired of conference sessions focused on lists of sites or apps, but I hate to admit I genuinely like them! Each time I attend […]

I just spent the day at our district’s summer staff development technology event. It was called “Tech Infusion” and I must say it felt like just what the name says. I was infused throughout the day with great ideas for integrating technology in a learner context–not just for students but for myself as well.  I […]

Most evenings I sift through my too full reader, often times choosing entire folders to “mark as read.”  Ten days or so ago while I was in Minneapolis, MN for AASL11, I found myself nightly just immediately going up there and without a second thought clearing it out to 0.  I just didn’t have time to read […]

Today on our SCASL-listserv, a fellow teacher-librarian asked about how schools are dealing with students who bring their own laptops to school. The posted question also inquired about how schools are using webcams, with the follow up statement “couldn’t they be used to help our homebound students.” Of course we had quite a few respond, […]

My youngest son (17yo) objects heatedly when I talk at the table about friends I’ve connected with. He always asks “real” or “virtual,” as he does not agree that the people I network with using 2.0 tools can be anything more than people somewhere else that you really don’t know.

As I see others reflecting on the year 2007 as it draws to a close, I must as well. There have been several changes for me including a new job, a new living arrangement for my family, and new opportunities that are as a direct result of joining the blogosphere and interacting with a network […]
