From Zen to KMN to Interact

Yesterday I had the honor of giving a keynote presentation at the Minnesota Educational Media Association’s final day of their annual conference.  What a joyful experience.  When I was asked I did not know for sure how I would approach it.  I pondered my current status as a media specialist school librarian and where my […]

Southern belles take Minnesota

This weekend (well actually Thursday through Saturday) I attended the Minnesota Educational Media Association’s annual conference, and was slated for a Saturday morning keynote.  The best part of this surprise invitation is that my Saturday keynote would follow the true Georgian Peach, Buffy Hamilton, who opened the conference Friday with a keynote.  That’s right, two […]

Did you miss ISTE 2010?

Some of you, like me, may have opted for other conferences. Others, often like me, could not afford the cost to travel, lodge, and attend ISTE 2010.

As I pack my things for the conferences, […]

Philly here I come!

I am so looking forward to arriving in Philadephia for the Educon2.0 so graciously hosted by Chris Lehmann and his school, the Science Leadership Academy. As the weekend draws closer, all I can think about is all the f2f meetings with fellow friends from my network! While I have met some f2f (back at EdubloggerCon […]

What a difference a week makes! Saturday the Edublogger awards were announced, and I was so sure I did not win, I did not even go into Second Life to hear who did, nor did I tap into the many portals made available live (like Edtech Talk, Skype, and others…) You see, as I told […]

Recently Carolyn Foote, a friend who is honestly a friend in the virtual sense, as I only know her from Twitter, blogging, webcasts, and Ustream forums, has challenged my thinking about the library. She works in a large public suburban high school in Austin, Texas (Westlake High School). She is in the process of packing […]
