Residents of Southeast Asia understand typhoons. As the winds pick up, people in the community scramble to secure windows, haul terrace furniture inside, and stock up on food.
The pre-service week has been a typhoon of activity, with my focus shifting to and from classroom arrangements, …Continue

“There is only one thing about which I am certain, and that is that there is very little about which one can be certain.” (W. Somerset Maugham).
To me this is very powerful statement that stretches across all of the areas of philosophy. For this response I am going to focus on epistemology. What W. Somerset Maugham is saying is that there are things that we may believe to be true, but then we find out that what we believed may not be true. To me this is very powerful. First…Continue

I found myself wondering how the iPad might work as a Digital Whiteboard, to project, as well as to use collaboratively. I also wondered if there might be some free apps that provide this kind of functionality (there are so many decent free apps for the iPad).
First step, hit the App…Continue

Stan was a high-school French teacher, he liked to teach, and he was good at it, he'd better be after nearly 15-years. Thankfully, he'd been a teacher that long, as even teachers with 10-12 year tenure had been laid off recently with all the budget cuts, scary stuff. Luckily, he was still working, because he had a daughter who'd cost him a pretty penny in the next 4-6 years. Yes, he enjoyed the world of education, but he also liked being a father, but was…Continue

Two weeks ago, I was asked by my Superintendent to work with our leadership team (principals and educational services) to train them specifically on PBL, but also on 21st century learning, 1-1, and individualized instruction...
It's encouraging to have a Superintendent who gets that we need to walk the talk, and wants us to have a game plan.
I've had two hours with them so far. During our time, they've set a few goals for how to bring it back to their…Continue

Today was "T Minus 5". Students arrive in five working days.
Two feelings: chatty and overwhelmed.
Importance of Chat
Each school year begins with faculty and staff assemblies. I look over a sea of roughly 300 people, about a third of whom I know fairly well. I want to hear about their summers. I want them to expand on their Facebook updates - all the fun stories they didn't post.
I think the importance of beginning-of-year chat is…
