I usually begin the day by picking few that I can highlight and get back to reading later.… Read More The Depth of the Rut
I read Justin Tarte’s post – I got in trouble for tweeting at work. As I read through it, I was reminded of my own experience and some of the frustrations that I have heard from others as they encounter resistance from others. First off, being connected in this context does not mean you are… Read More Why Connect?
Today’s view – yep – overwhelmed! This post is the direct result of these tweets: Earlier in the day, I read this post by Tom Whitby – Patience for the Unconnected about being connected. All of this reminded me of the tweet I ran across earlier, with a reference to a post from Chris Betcher. It… Read More It’s Overwhelming…..and then some!
This was a comment I made on the #satchatwc a while back. It’s had a few retweets and some comments. This past Saturday morning, I joined in the first #edcampHOME hosted as an edcamp event but online.

This is especially true of education where we tend specialize in acronyms and titles. 21st Century Learning/ 21st… Read More In this Galaxy or the Next – It’s Learning
Having been around twitter and SM for quite awhile, I’ve noticed a shift in content of what people are writing about and the proliferation of “quotable quotes” that seem to fill space. Now, I don’t often write/blog as I find there are other ways to connect and share. (I do have some thoughts on that… Read More Slogans Don’t Make Changes
Today, I was involved in a chat on Twitter. It’s nothing new, I join them all the time but it became clear to me that not everyone who follows you or is on twitter understands the breadth and depth of conversations that take place since not everyone is at the same stage in its use or… Read More Following the conversation
