FCC needs to hear from you!

This was sent to the members of LM_Net (of which I am not a member) and to members of the WWWEDU Yahoo group (of which I AM a member–who mostly just lurks!) The WWWEDU group is basically a list serv, but Nancy Willard is a member who posts excellent content regularly, and so I ALWAYS […]

Recent developments, the Teacher Librarian Cafe Elluminate last night, and yes, the AASL name change have my emotions so stirred I cannot think straight.  Even at supper tonight my husband and I debated on who was being harder hit, the media specialists with the discovery that our President and congress see little value in our […]

iPad: the next best thing?

So, who wants one?? Will this replace the textbook as we know it? I’m not sure the “iPad” can do it. In my experience, nothing Apple or MAc has been reasonably priced to be used in Education–at least here in the Southeast. But I can hope. I still think Netbooks will replace textbooks soon, and […]

Ann Oro (aka njtechteacher) is referring her friends and PLN members to Nancy Willard’s  recent post regarding filters in schools today, and Nancy is right on the money! (Thanks Ann!!) […]

Okay I saw it first here on Dangersously Irrelevant: “Video – What does it mean to be literate in the 21st century? Here’s a new video from Heidi Clark and Anita Bramhoff, two Canadian teachers who made the film as part of some work at the University of British Columbia. Happy viewing!” Then I saw […]

My Holiday Reading

Leslie Edwards (author the WebFooted BookLady) of  of North Vancouver, BC shared her stack of books on Twitter a bit ago, and I was amused since I have a stack to read as well. Wonder how many other educators brought home (or already had at home) a stack of reads for the break?  Here’s mine. […]

Spreading Some Christmas Cheer

Dr. Mary Ann Bell Mary Woodard’s post (from her Blog The Top Shelf-just got word today I had the wrong name–ooops so sorry!!) got me to remembering what I loved most about being an elementary librarian in the not too distant past. (And if I had not felt like the glorified babysitter and residential expert […]

What’s in a name?

I was invited to introduce Google Docs for a collaborative project the teacher is riding through the end of the semester (which is in just 6 days!!) Cloud Computing made easy I talked about what it was, introduced the term “cloud computing,” showed the Common Craft video on Google Docs, and then proceeded to log […]
