Happy Cyber Compliment Day (and happy Birthday, Stephen Downes)

I've been out of pocket on spring break but returned to see that some of my friends have said that today is happy Cyber-compliment day (to make today a really Good Friday.)

It also happens to be Stephen Downes‘ Birthday.

So, I used a cool new free service called toondoo to create a comic strip just for him. (This is a really cool service that you can use to create and post cartoons, much like teacher tube!)

I do give sincere compliments to Stephen for sorting through the countless blog posts out there and adding his own commentary. The power of blogs is in adding opinion… a running commentary on life or our profession as we see it.

I also give compliments to all of you who participate in this amazing, incredibly motivating edublogging community. If you're reading and don't have a blog, stop here and post a compliment to thank someone. If you blog, post and compliment others on your blog. It will be nice to hear some kind compliments.

Have a good Friday!

  1. You beat me to it! You continue to be a huge inspiration to me! Thank you for putting up with me and my students! Happy Friday!!

  2. Vicki,

    I am constantly amazed how you are able to manage everything. Although it seems effortless from the other side of the screen, I know it is hard work. It is very much appreciated. I have learned a lot from you. Muchas gracias! Vielen Dank!

  3. Love the new look on your blog.
    Thank you for your constantly positive messages. Happy Easter.

  4. Thanks for “keeping it real.” By that I mean providing the perspective of one who still works in the schools. I love reading many of the “visionaries” (e.g., Warlick, November, Richardson, etc.) who I find inspiring and creative beyond belief. But people like you (and Valenza, Jakes, Schrock, Utecht, etc.) still with day to day responsibilities in a school or district add a valuable basis of reality to the mix. Thanks.
