About Me
I founded Nimble Press in 1999 and like to work with both big companies and small organizations that make a difference in schools. I'm hoping that our little product, Grant Wrangler, will become one of those change agents. When I'm not reading and writing, I'm either dancing, cooking or gardening. And that's why I love San Francisco. I can do all those things in any season and any day of the week.
We just added a grant headline feeder to Grant Wrangler. Now, any site can post our rotating headlines. They're updated every two weeks with the latest featured grants. It's a great way to add something dynamic to a web page. Check it out on Grant Wrangler: How To. We also did this for our blog headlines. You can see the rotating headlines in the right column of our home page Grant Wrangler. What do you think? Will this be helpful to people?

I'm at the Web 2.0 Conference here in San Francisco, my second year attending. Last year felt very entrepreneurial and this year feels a little more serious and corporate. A lot of the products are starting to shift from a focus on the end user to enterprise deployments. Still no one from education here. Even though under 20 are the early adopters and most adventurous users of many of the technology, no one puts that together with what they do in school.

What are the trends this… Continue

Web 2.0 in Education International Points of View

Posted on April 10, 2008 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

In addition to the amazing speakers on the stage at the CoSN 7th Annual International Symposium, we had a fascinating discussion at my table. We had people from around the country and around the world, sharing our response to the speakers.

Presented with many examples of how Web 2.0 tools were changing teaching and learning around the globe, we kept hearing how the tools stopped short of widespread adoption. Most of the Web 2.0 tools such as facebook,… Continue

Barriers to Personalized Learning in Schools

Posted on April 6, 2008 at 4:53pm 0 Comments

At the CoSN conference in March 2008, I led a birds of a feather discussion about Long Tail Learning. Our discussion hit on trust, student privacy, and school district liability. We came up with a list of barriers/challenges:

# The classroom model of traditional education: 1 teacher, 25-30 students

# The Carnegie units system of measuring learning by time and place

# The ability for students to self… Continue

Disaster Planning and the Role of Technology

Posted on March 20, 2008 at 11:18am 0 Comments

Last October, I contacted some friends in San Diego to find out how they were doing when the wild fires raged through the county. I learned that technology played a key role in the school district's ability to communicate with families and continue learning despite a county-wide evacuation.

I got to thinking about what role technology plays when the unexpected happens. I came up with 10 lessons learned in speaking with Bob Gravina of Poway… Continue

Can We Increase the Wisdom of the Crowd?

Posted on July 30, 2007 at 6:17pm 0 Comments

One of the key principles of Web 2.0 is that through widespread collaboration and mass participation, the “wisdom of the crowds” emerges. Think Wikipedia’s self correcting


Long before myspace, youtube, and Internet forums existed, people engaged in dialogue to expand understanding, test ideas and learn. From Socratic dialogue to the best classrooms of today,…

Steve Hargadon recommended I talk to you about grant writing inquiries. I looked at Grant Wrangler, but don't see opportunities specific to my search. I'm a secondary math teacher with a primary interest in incorporating a technology like Accelerated Math into the math department. (It's also for a class I'm taking for masters in ed tech program).

Hi Karen,

With your interest in Wen 2.0 Technology, 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 I just made that you might find useful.

Hi Karen - yes, I'll be at Educonn on Saturday. I wouldn't miss it. So many wonderful people to connect with. It would be great to catch up with you. I plan to join COSN - been asked to present so thinking it's time for me to do that. I would love a copy of the compedieum. Thanks, Barbara

Any news on the NECC panel session? One of my proposals was accepted so I will be attending.

Yep, that is a very valuable piece of work. Jenkins and his group at MIT are doing some really excellent work. I have several conversations with him and he knows about our work and has been very supportive.
BTW, glad to see you resurrecting john dewey. While he could have used some of your editing in his writing his ideas with regard to the nature of education and schooling are as relavant today as they were back in the early part of the last century. Dewey was really done in by his disciple William Kilpatrick who was the popularizer and bastardizer of his ideas. While Dewey is considered by many as the father of progressive education it was really Dewey as glibly interpreted by Kilpatrick which really shaped the progressive school movement.

No one said my picture looks cute. Can I borrow your hat for my picture?? Might help!
