Web 2.0 and 1:1 Implementation

I had the privilege and opportunity to present at WEMTA 2010 this year as a spotlight presenter. The 2 1/2 hour hands-on session was of course one of my favorites which was titled: Transforming Your Classroom Instruction with Web 2.0 Literacy Tools." David Kapuler  co-facilitated with me- so it was wonderful to have another instructor as a "dynamic duo" to share our best of the best resources and showcase how to introduce these tools to students to create a final product meeting the ISTE NETS in the k-12 classroom.  Lots of conversation with participants and WEMTA attendees have taken place before, during and after this conference, which has kept this topic on the forefront of education in Wisconsin.

I am really impressed with the motivation and dedication that some Wisconsin educators showcase to stay current with technology integration, and to change and enhance their teaching and learning environments.  Ultimately it is a win-win situation for the school district and especially their students!

Below is a collection of resources shared at the conference, but also resources that have been now shared to address web 2.0 AUP's and 1:1 initiatives to support this movement.

Twitter is My Life Line- What Happens When It Goes Down?

Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope the coming year brings you much joy, relaxation, and fundamental enjoyment around the most important events in your life in the coming new year.  One major event I am looking forward to is our oldest son's wedding in the Caribbean in late Spring. I am so proud of him and his beautiful finance Krissy, they are truly meant to be together- and are so very happy. I am also pleased to say that I am very happy in my life- with my family, work and active lifestyle- and can't wait for the new year to bring much inspired new learning to my everyday adventures. 
Much of my inspired educational learning comes from my PLN of Twitter. Today as I launched my browser then Tweetdeck to welcome the morning with familiar Twitter friends- I was faced with the big blue whale- as this is the symbol that Twitter is over capacity. I thought- no worries- refreshed my browser- and relaunched Tweetdeck once again- but it happened again.  I think I cried a little inside at …

Smartboard Training at the University Level

This week I will be offering Smartboard trainings to our local universities. I have put together a link list of "adult learner" content sites that professors and instructional trainers can easily use with their college students to enrich their curriculum offerings. This is just a "starter list" and I will continue to add to this list as resources are found and shared from others from around the world. Thanks to my social network of Twitter friends for the development of the Smartboard resources as a true global team!

2017 Beginning of the New Year: A Learning Discovery Escapade

The holiday break was very well needed and appreciated, and allowed for me to personally and professionally take a break from my education strategist job and relax with some amazing educational research articles to read- as they have been sitting on the back burner for a few months. Some topics of interest that have caught my interest and full attention is the most recent case studies on our student learning population of Generation Z. Yes, these are the kiddos born from 1995 -2010, and these are the young adults now entering the majestic years of college for the first time or are deeply engaged in a full-time job as their new career.


Did you now that these Gen Z students are completely different than Gen Y? Yet many of our k12 educators, and university professors are still teaching to the knowledge base of Gen Y, and have not caught up to the new learning needs and student interest of this dynamic population. Everything they are learning is through a multi-sensory and multi touch inte…
