What a great idea to screencast your prezi CV for your “About Me” page. I really like how you describe your learning journey for your audience. You have blended some storytelling with giving information. I totally agree with you when you say, “I thought that it is less and less relevant to make a classic CV. Indeed, if anyone wants…[Read more]
Course 3…WOW! So many new ideas and ways to improve how I teach communication skills to my students. Here are some of my projects:
I have always loved them! And now I know why.
An infographic is a visual representation of data.
Digital storytelling is simply storytelling.
Thanks so much for your comments and for the resource tip. I’ll check it out.
I finally had a chance to check out that resource. What a great find. Thanks so much for sharing that with me.
Hope all is well in 3rd grade.
Thanks for so many great ideas. I have to say I had an “ah ha” moment when I saw your sketch of your website design. I had read that Garr Reynolds suggests planning presentation slides on paper but I hadn’t thought about how valuable it is to plan our website on paper. This advice comes at perfect timing because my students are creating…[Read more]

Thanks Jason. I have a very energetic bunch (22–16 boys and 6 girls) so I love to create opportunities for everyone to slow down, think, and share.In reply to - Michelle Beard wrote a new post, Writers Live With Their Eyes Opened to the World Around Them, on the site Learning in Global Communities Who is in this photo?

This week we are talking about how to zen up our presentations based on the well known book Zen Presentation by Garr Reynolds.
Here is a great short video that summarizes the points in his book:
We’ve been on a school break but on Monday I get to step into my international classroom and do what I do everyday: train little hearts and minds to be proactive, positive, wise and compassionate human being.
Who is in this photo?
What are they doing? Why?
What else do you notice in the photo?
What message might the photographer be trying to communicate?
How do you know that?
These are some of the questions we
It’s been a perfect week to delve into visual literacy.
It’s the Tet holiday and I’m in Phuket, Thailand enjoying views like this with my family:
Visual images are powerful.

I really identify with what you are saying here about seeing the connections rather than teaching these essential skills as “one more thing.” Such a challenge! I am finding that it’s easier for me to look for teachable moments and teach these skills as mini-lessons that I can come back to in a deeper way. Just this week, I decided to…[Read more]In reply to - Megan Looney wrote a new post, My Plate Isn’t So Full: Making Connections Between Digital Citizenship Skills and Learning Assets, on the site Learning Ishfully Ever After When reading the question for this week’s […] · View

Great work on your Empowered Use Policy! I really enjoyed working with you. Thanks for your feedback and helpful resources. My favorite part of your project is how you turned it into an infographic using piktochart. I am planning on sharing your chart and EUP our lower elementary teachers. I would love to include graphics in mine, but I…[Read more]
Thanks so much for the shout out! I love teaching The Teachers College Reading and Writing Workshop and I am excited to see the results of this unit. Thanks for the link to RandomKid. I have never seen that before but I certainly plan to have my students visit that website when we are in the idea generating phase. I have been using…[Read more]
The big idea for me in course 2 is the importance of harnessing the power of technology to make positive contributions to our world.
In this week’s blog post we are focusing on how we as educators, can empower students to use technology to make a positive impact in their world.
What a great opportunity you had to attend the Safer Internet Forum in Europe. I would love to have attended. I really appreciate what you have to share in this post. “…shouldn’t we collectively address this situation? It seems that the guidance could come from many members of the school learning community and it is probably b…[Read more]
