About Me
Every time I review my "About Me" entry I end up with a grin on my face... Due to budget cuts I cannot keep up with what I will be teaching as each year it is slated to be elimated. Electives have, once again, been cut for the upcoming year. So I think I will revise this entry to simply say that I am a TEACHER of STUDENTS who loves to work with those who are struggling in the area of reading. Additionally, I love using blogs, wikis and whatever technology appears at my doorstep next to engage whichever student walks through the door of my classrooms (yes, plural, I get two classrooms).

What did you use to make your website? Did you buy a domain? What is the advantage?

Hi Peter,

For your Web 2.0 class, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service. Here’s a public class recording conducted by Nellie Deutsch on Technology Integration.

I am not in the classroom right now but am working with pre- and inservice teachers in areas of professional development and technology. I love your statement about "getting it all," so I wrote about it in my blog. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi, from East Tennessee. I'm looking forward to seeing and exploring some of your work.

Your work is amazing. I am very impressed. Right now I am using pbwiki, but it looks like your wiki is through classroom 2.o. how do you get started?

Thanks for the kind welcome. After reading your page it looks like I can learn a lot here. I will just need time to figure out how to navigate it all and create my page. Sounds like our situations are very similar. They are looking at technology language arts for me next year. Would love to see what you do in your tech class. I have a semester course where all the work is posted on I am trying to get the grading simpiflied

Oh! i didn't think to look back over my old comments! this is what i get for dipping in and skimming...but thanks! i've found you can use the combination of comic life & iphoto do most of anything that photoshop can do and more! (for the ave teacher, wiki, or blog!) i may even have to do a wikipage tutorial on this cause it could save a lot of peeps big bucks! cheers again!

cheers! "also" implies there was something said previously...if so, i've missed it! eep! it is...the photo's i posted were from my Second Life...all pixels and profile pic i photoshopped within an inch of its life...the pics on my electronic portfolio i played with comic life...
did i get even a wee bit close answering your question? [grins]

MS Walk 2009

Posted on April 19, 2009 at 11:44am 0 Comments

Dear Friends and Family,

This Sunday, April 26, my family and I will be once again joining hundreds of others in raising money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society by participating in the MS Walk. As many of you know I was diagnosed with MS several years ago and have rebounded from the lows that I first experienced. I attribute the highs I experience today to the clinical study I am participating in that is possible, in part, because of your past… Continue

Teaching students how to comment...

Posted on September 27, 2008 at 11:00pm 3 Comments

About 1.5 weeks ago I rolled out my class blog (Mr. Lane's Computer Applications/Web 2.0 Blog) as an interactive tool with my 8th grade Web 2.0 technology class (the first few weeks it served, more or less, as a Web 1.0 tool). After working through the layout of the blog, we read together a post, and then I asked them to submit a comment. Before they commented I spent some time discussing the importance of making sure the comment was free of spelling… Continue
