Yesterday I worked on my #Eddies13 Nominations. Of course I had to visit my reader to see which ones stick out for me before making my nominations, looking for the profound and memorable. I have so much in my reader sometimes things get lost. That happens when there are 273 feeds there. And daily I […]

I can’t speak loudly enough of the power of connected learning. As Connected Educator month continues, I thought about what inspirational voices come from local flavor (the South Carolina variety.) You will find these amidst all the other feeds I subscribe to in my current reader of choice, Feedly. And actually I was asked by […]
Our current USC-SLIS intern led a booktalk yesterday for one of our Honors English classes. They are setting up mini book clubs within the class, and each book club has to choose one of the dystopian books from the presented set.

Is Twitter really worth my time? Many of my friends scoff at Twitter as a helpful program for Professional Development. Often […]
The iGoogle page is going to be retired! WHAT!!?? Well, yes, it’s true but we have a while. It won’t go away until November of 2013 so that’s plenty of time to begin the search for the iGoogle homepage diehards! My post will explore some options that I am familiar with. I’d love to hear […]
In mid April one of my English teachers had her AP Lit students create propaganda pieces as a component of the novel study of George Orwell’s 1984. I blogged about it here. First impressions can be so deceiving, as though I came to the class to see them and even agreed to display them in […]
So I’m working on some signs to put around school, and here is sign numero uno.
