Summer Vacation?

Dean Shareski has an interesting post about summer holidays. As Dean comments

For me though, I don’t get as excited as I once did about June and it’s not just that I haven’t spend 185 days with kids, although that does make a difference, but as I said before, I still

longed for summer vacation even after I left the…

International Projects Rock!

To really know and understand the power of global collaboration, each and every teacher must make the effort to form a partnership with another country and engage students in worldwide conversations. Aside from physically traveling around the world, the next best opportunity in becoming globally aware and developing global citizenship is to connect via technology! Video conferencing, digital storytelling, digital music making and playing games together cultivates the ultimate environment for… Continue

Human Relations

Human relations are so important as an educator. Each day we are required to interact with many different people in a variety of different ways. As an administrator, I've learned that what I say is

not always what the other person hears and, I am responsible for what

it is I have said/written. If I offend someone, I have two choices.

This entry is about this very fact.

This week, while my edublogs account was down, I've been involved in a heated discussion about the…

Digital Confusion

Over the past few weeks, I’ve noticed a few themes that have caught my attention. Now, a few of them are very positive, like the Future of Education that is being hosted by George Siemens over at University of Manitoba. Another is planning, especially for the summer months as many teachers

prepare for some time off and away from the school. Now, I would…

I'll be a lead technology coach in a charter school two days a week, and developing and implementing a professional development tech plan during the rest of my time. It should be a challenge and a great opportunity to develop a new skill set. I'm excited, but nervous and a tad sad as I do love my current job. At… Continue

Impromptu project this Tuesday


the idea came up in this very forum, so here it is:

On Tuesday, take a picture of the highest clock around or of the area around your school from a high point within your school at the right moment: 02:03:04 on 05.06.07.

Post the image to Flickr with the tag "020304050607".

(So far there is only one image with that tag taken on the 6th of May. The project makes more sense on a Tuesday than on a Sunday, hence 05.06.07 rather than… Continue

example leaflet

Click on image to view a pdf of the leaflet

It is clear that technology has a significant role to play to inspire and motivate our learners. We all know that WWW stands for World Wide Web.
