Tailoring a Tapestry of Talent

Students today enjoy the connectedness of social networking; it is part of their very being. My goal is to bring my instruction into that cloud to teach the content required in ways that inspire online responsibility and ethics in this new, very public world.

With the interactive, choice-filled technology, students words and videos flow in on-the-spot thinking. Creating concise and creative texts and images requires careful composition. Kids today will become adept at such fluid forays in online thinking, writing, and imaging. They will demand of us the opportunity to learn in such an environment; they want the choices and options. Part of our responsibility is to provide a grounding of their connectivity as they weave their strengths and talents in their choices and networks. We help them connect the millions of dots into a bigger picture, and they will lead us as well.

Thanks for your thoughtful comment. It seems to me that we may be asking the wrong question. Rather than asking how to educate some students well perhaps we should be asking how to educate all students well. Suspect that seeking an answer to the later question will lead our practice in a profoundly different direction and ICT would be a much more essential element of that practice.

My son's gambling addiction with a "sure-fire" roulette system is ruining his life

My 27-year-old son is depressed and in the habit of gambling. His manual-labor job seems to get him down and he feels worthless as in our family both parents are graduates, as is his younger sister – he feels the only way out of his "inadequacy" is going to the bookies so that "one day" he will win enough so as not to have to work any more.Typically, he gambles most of his income within a fortnight. As he lives at home…See More

Eileen Lennon posted a blog post

So I accidentally blew up on Twitter last week.

National Teacher Day was May 9th, and I wanted to recognize that in a small way. I had a graphic that I created for a previous Twitter Chat, so I opened it back up, changed the top, and posted it with two small sentences and hash tagged it with #NationalTeachersDay. I tagged my usual tribe in the graphic so they would re-tweet it for me; they’re awesome like that. After that, I went about my day.…See More
