This is really part two of yesterday’s post, and I will now focus on Discovery Education’s Discovery Educator Network.  How fitting that Arne Duncan named October as “Connected Educator Month,” because connecting educators is what I think of when I think Discovery Educator Network (DEN).  Since South Carolinians have access to part of the most […]

Tuesday I was at a local district’s technology conference, UTC. Our Keynote, Chris Craft, challenged us to find some new voices; meet new people and learn from them.

So I ran across this tweet today, and was first sucked in after clicking the link when I realized Clemson (from right here in SC) is a partner sponsor.

3 – 2 – 1 – 0 – Bling!

The other day I was assigned a task at school to administer a type of timed oral fluency test.  I am not sure of all the details, but I didn’t mind as it seemed simple enough, and I’m a team player. I was asked and complied.  A student is given passage to read aloud; I […]

What sells you on learning?

I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again, I HATE “sit and get” type learning (professional development or k12 classroom learning.)  I’ve been asked to help plan and perhaps present a session on the American Association of School Librarians Standards for the 21st Century Learner.
