I find the comments on this post to be so confirming of the thought that teachers aren't respected as they used to be. I still believe teaching is the most noble calling on earth.
If you're from Iowa, I think you should comment, but remember, when you do, do so with kindness and respect that speaks well of your profession.
Found this cool site, Fact Monster, to use with my son for flash cards. I've made flash cards but they like the online video game versions better. I just type in his answers for him and we make a game out of it.
How to add your remember the milk tasks to netvibes. I use the igoogle widget, but the netvibes widget is very powerful also — you'll get more out of this handy tool if you add it to your start page. It is much easier to work with this way because the add feature is much better than in remember the milk.
Remember the Milk has very powerful ways to share lists. We spent some time setting up our list for Flat Classroom, Digiteen, and the conference in remember the milk. If you have a virtual team, I highly suggest that you set up a list. There are many services, but this is my favorite. Go through this and click next – this is how we did it.
K12 online marketing flyer — this is going to be so exciting!
The K12 online conference is a FREE conference for people who teach kids at the K12 level. You'll find tons of great information about how to teach today's kids and information on new tools and classroom best practice. Julie and I are working with the strand “kicking it up a notch” and are very excited!
I am so excited about the NCTIES conference in California. The North Carolina Technology Group is making a complete overhaul in everything they do and wow, Ellen Minter is just doing amazing work. This will be one of the few times I'll “get out” this year.
The conference is NCTIES Instruction 2.0 Engineering Change Conference in Raleigh NC on March 4 – 6, 2009. This will be phenomenal and I'm so excited.
Right after this conference, I'll jet out to CUE to present on Friday.
Don't get out a lot, but when I do it is so great to meet all of you out there. We all have so much in common!
Congratulations to David Warlick on delivering the keynote for the Thinkquest Awards yesterday. He's a great champion for ed and got me started!
