#WriteOut: Giving Kids A Camera In Order to Capture The Wild

As the Write Out project kicks off today (and goes for the next two weeks, with the National Day on Writing right in the middle of it all), I wanted to share out a project I have had underway for a few weeks now, in which my sixth grade students have been going about their […]

Graphic Novel Review: Real Friends and Best Friends

Friendship is surely one of the trickiest areas that sixth graders navigate through, as they begin to leave elementary school behind and step into the middle school world (even at my school, where our sixth graders are still physically in an elementary building). Writer Shannon Hale, with illustrator LeUyen Pham, dive into this world of […]

Each day in October, there is a daily theme, and even if you are just seeing this now, mid-October, […]

ReWriting the Script: GBL, POS and a Game of Tomes

Last Saturday, at the Western Massachusetts Writing Project annual fall conference, which had the theme of “Rewriting the Script,” I sat in on some interesting workshop sessions. I’ll be doing some sharing out from the conference in the days ahead. I appreciated that the presenter in this workshop entitled, with pun fun, A Game of Tomes […]

About Me
I am a writer, teacher, and musician with an interest in technology as an avenue of composition.


This is part of a larger experiment with other teachers to create a Collaborative ABC Movie using Web 2.0 tools and features. For one of my letters -- Z --- I wrote a poem and used images from a site called MapMyWord, and then put them together as this movie. (more info about the project can be found at

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.


Listen to the song:

Hi Kevin

This is a repeat of the comment I left on your Blog.

I am involved in a European Union funded education project looking at how to use digital comics in schools

I am looking for websites and forums that focus on the use of digital comics in education, any suggestions would be very welcome.

I have a good list of websites that have comic tools, this is mainly about using the comics within the school.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi Kevin,

With your interest in Technology and Writing, 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.

Hi Kevin. I was wondering if you have students or educator friends who would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. You can view contest details at Please let me know. Thanks!

Hi Kevin:

I know your offer to track down a library 2.0 site is months old, but I'd still take you up on it if you are willing. Pati

Thanks Kevin
I have used Edublogs. Why do you wish you started in Edublogs?

Speaking of ECSU, you may be interested in our Nutmeg project. We have collaborated with a class at the university. As part of their course work, they had to use Web2.0 tools to create book hooks and response to literature activities for our wikis. Here is an example of a book hook (scroll down to see the voki) created by one of the students. It was a reading course, not technology. The professor is trying to integrate technology into her courses.

Hi Kevin
I love your Youth Radio blog. I am interested in setting up a Word press blog. Can you tell me what you are using and how you got started? Also, are you happy with Word press. How do you manage the podcasts? Are you paying for a space to store them?

I play an electronic MIDI keyboard for fun, and I like to compose music. I'm still going through everyone's blogs and trying to keep the details straight! Music technology is one of my hobbies.

Thanks for the nice comment about the songs. You seem like a very interesting fellow and I hope to share some thoughts with you.
