About Me
Been a closet geek for a while as a teacher, left for a bit, now I'm back. If the door is open and no one is watching I'll sneak out to play golf. The Blog is a (emphasis) new - work in progress.

New start coming up

Posted on January 12, 2010 at 8:08am 0 Comments

While I have been able to experiment quite a bit this past semester, I still need to develop continuity with the tools being employed or deployed. Most of my students have access to most of the curriculum material online at home. Though they have demonstrated little interest in using their computers to do work from home. Most still see this technology as ways to expand their social umbrella, and share the misfortunes of others, rather than as a way to accomplish tasks. On more than one occasion… Continue

Learning and applying exponentially can be overwhelming

Posted on December 9, 2009 at 5:20pm 0 Comments

I started this web journey a few months ago, and while I do drop by occasionally, I have yet to commit to any one following. The week with the K-10 Online conference I have begun to more clearly understand what I am doing. At least without being able to explain what I am doing, though I know that won't sit so well with my administrators who are trying to evaluate my progress.



Since August I have been glogging, blogging, and tweeting. Last week started iPodding and am Xtranormal,… Continue

I am so looking forward to the weekend so I can play around with some of the tools I have discovered this week. Most recently xtranormal.com and the ability to make an animated video in minutes. It's clunky and a little bumpy but I never lost any work. The students reacted well to the presentations and tomorrow the students will give it a test drive.



Not doing too poorly in developing the habits needed to keep blogging at leat once per week. Finished reading Will Richardson's book,… Continue

So what have I been up to?



I have a Ning for my class groups to communicate through. Did the Wordle stuff and found it potentially very useful for presentations. Uploaded a SlideShare and added a Youtube videos to the presenation (even though my district blocks Youtube and i won't be able to use the slides there). Began creating a wesite with Weebly to see what could be done by little ole me. Skyped, twittered and looked at plurking. Last week produced a few podcsts with my students,… Continue

eportfolio 'cuse I need more to figure out

Posted on September 19, 2009 at 12:45pm 4 Comments

Just finished the webinar on Electronic Portfolios and found it interesting. My quandary is that when I did the paper portfolio years ago, it appeared that the amount of time spent working on them always felt disproportionate to the product. I like exhibit A the student preferred exhibit K. We would discuss it, compare it to the rubric, and debate it over again before moving on to the next item.



I really like the idea of a Web 2.0 eportfolio where it is a truly (virtual) living… Continue
