I read this today in Mary Woodard’s Blog The Top Shelf–essentially Dallas Public Library has created a branch in a local mall. Fantastic idea!!  All I could think is how this could be modified for the school library. I know my circ stats are not what I want them to be, despite investing a large […]

Just 2 questions…

I read this in my reader tonight (yeah, I’m a wee bit behind…) and was struck by the conversation on how to interview people for a school going 1:1 (one computer per student) with technology.

Wow 2 years has flown by.  It is my blog birthday THIS FRIDAY.  I don’t know if my blogging skills have grown, but some of my earlier posts are downright laughable.  My very first post was about the K12 Online Conference too.

He just ran with it!

Last week I posted a comment on Doug Johnson’s blog about filtering, yes that necessary filter educators reckon with daily.  Yes, I compared the weirdness that ALA would sponsor rebels with a Banned Book Campaign Annually but have not even remotely addressed our 21st century censorship issue–that of filtering. My comment even somewhat dared him, […]

The last two days I was lucky enough to participate in school leadership professional development, and heard our leader, Dr. Elsberry, talk about embracing 21st Century Skillls in our instruction, and even name drop! She talked about George Lucas, […]
