Hello Team - I hope everyone in our group is learning and continuing to push the button in the field of emerging technology and education.  Through-out 2013, I'll be releasing a monthly newsletter on Emerging Technology, Web 2.0 tools, online teaching, and other concepts related to technology in the field of education.  The first edition is hot off the press: adding video introductions to online courses using YouTube - how-to guides for Blackboard or Edvance 360, MOOC's, and the New Media Consortium yearly report which was released last week.  Feel free to share this resource with your team members.

Wrapping up another year

I teach sixth grade, so I will be saying goodbye to my students in about a week. I'll see them in the hallways, but it won't be the same. They'll never be in my classroom again. That's weird to think about right now, when all I do is see them.It has me wondering; did I serve them as best I could? Did I impart all the wisdom I could into their little brains? Did I ignite a spark, or reaffirm a defeatist attitude?I have to be honest, there are some kids I won't miss. You know the kids I'm talking…See More
