I am a K-6 computer teacher and Technology Teacher Leader in Philadelphia, PA. I blog at http://philly-teacher.blogspot.com. My blog includes reflections on my day-to-day experiences in the classroom as well as thoughts on education policy and some reviews of software, websites and tools that I have come across.

My blog is a blend of education and technology. I hope to provide useful information to teachers on technologies they can use in their classroom and insight into the world of education. For me its more about dialougue....I like to start the conversations and see where people take them. You can also find there my favorite links each day from Twitter and the weekly summary of #edchat.

My blog is still in the early stages of development - often the color schemes or the wordpress theme changes when I see something I like better and I haven't quite found a focused niche yet... but all of my posts have to do with my life as an instructional technology lover working (currently) as a technology teacher at a middle school in Corning NY. My goal is to have 50 posts prior to EduBloggerCon in Denver...

Effective Teaching, Quality Instruction and Professional Development

How do we define effective teaching? What is quality instruction? What is the impact on student learning? What impact does technology have on teaching and learning? Can resources improve teaching and learning? How do we approach the scholarship of teaching and learning?

I am currently the Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at Vincennes University.

Technology Chatter http://vestaltech.edublogs.org/

As a technology integrator and teacher mentor I work with teachers K-12 on how to truly integrate technology to improve student motivation and achievement. My blog focuses now on web 2.0 tools and how they can be used in the classroom to increase digital conversations and collaboration.

Stop by and see for yourself- we'd love to hear what you think.

This is my 1st attempt to share classroom activities, information for students and parents, and book reviews blog style. Feel free to comment and suggest ideas to improve-this has been fun!
I am so impressed by how much people write on their blogs and how much web20classroom and others tweet! I use http://educatoral.com/wordpress/ for parents and barely write one or two posts per month with just class news. My students blog more than me, not by much, at http://mrgonzalez.org/ but I can't get them all to blog. I tweet when I can but just can't find the time. How do you all do it?

Is Online Learning The Answer For The Coronavirus Closed Schools?

With the rapid spread of the Corona Virus, there has been a clarion call for schools to close and immediately shift to online learning in the interest of health and safety. With all that has been written and talked about in regard to “online learning” over the last decade, the perception is that now is a great time to put tech to work and implement this modern methodology to address our current situation and limit face-to-face exposure in order to self-quarantine a huge portion of our…See More
