The third and final installment of podcasts about the book I co-edited and wrote a chapter for (called Teaching the New Writing) is up at Teachers Teaching Teachers. The first podcast centered on why us three editors (myself, Charlie Moran and Anne Herrington) decided to publish a collection of… Continue

I wrote this as my students were writing their own songs. I also wanted to experiment to see how far the song might travel along various networks, so feel free to pass the link along through your networks.
You are invited to join teachers across the globe for a special interactive Teachers Teaching Teachers (TTT) webcast, titled "Teaching the New Writing: Exploring the Collaborative Nature of Writing and Technology in the Classroom," sponsored by the National Writing Project Technology Initiative.
As educators move forward into the terrain of digital literacy and learning with their students, part of the challenge is balancing the innovation of new… Continue

On Wednesday night (9 p.m. eastern time), I will be guest-hosting this week’s edition of Teachers Teaching Teachers as we continue to explore the book I co-edited — Teaching the New Writing. This week, we’re going to focus in on the theme of collaboration with some of the chapter writers. It should be an interesting talk about how technology… Continue

This is a feature that I run regularly at my blog that asks folks to boil down their week or a day in their week into a single reflective sentence. This week, we are using Voicethread. I invite you to join us:… Continue
A webcomic that I developed as a creative writing outlet is now being published as a weekly feature at the regional newspaper in my area. The comic -- called Boolean Squared -- is all about education, technology and the perceptions of kids and adults. Essentially, I see the comic as a way to poke fun at myself.
Greetings I want to invite you to join a collaborative project in which you boil a day of the week, or your entire week, into a single sentence and share it through a community of writers. This week, we are using VoiceThread.
This was a feature started by another blogging teacher, who decided to stop blogging, and I have taken on this weekly feature called Day in a Sentence, in which teachers boil down their week or a day in their week into one concise statement. We have about a dozen regular contributors and I want to invite YOU (that's right, you) into the mix.
I had the pleasure of being a keynote speaker (my first time!) at a conference around technology and writing at the Hudson Valley Writing Project on Saturday. It was a wonderful group of teachers and soon-to-be-teachers who were interested in this convergence of technology and writing in the classroom.
In the interest of sharing, here is my keynote address (if I cut out my Ummms and Uhhhhs, it would probably be about 10 minutes shorter than it is). Anyway, here is the podcast of my… Continue

My friend, Bonnie, and I are presenting at this year’s K12 Online Conference and we hope to show folks how we used the tools of Web 2.0 to create a learning environment for other educators as part of our Collaborative ABC Movie Project. We’re a bit mystified about how the conference will
go but we are confident we can handle it, and already have some great
ideas brewing for folks who “attend” our virtual workshop.…
I am now in my second week of running a claymation-animation camp for middle school students. This is an experiment of sorts and yet, it seems to be going great. The kids are very engaged, the tech seems to be working fine, and parents are thrilled by the excitement of their children in our program.
If you are interested in the plan of action (not quite a curriculum, really) that I have been following, you can view this…Continue
