Keith Schroeder Winner of ASCD Suite & 20 Ways HS Are Using Twitter

Good Morning Everyone!

I want to make a NEW  announcement today that we have a winner for the ASCD suite.  Keith Schroeder from the Bay Port School District in Green Bay, Wisconsin is the lucky winner of the Adobe Digital School Suite. Keith is a dynamic High School Library Media Specialist providing his staff professional development training incorporating information & technology literacy standards into their curriculum, team teaches lessons with his staff, oversee the operation of the Library Media Center, maintains the Bay Port High School website, and assist High School students in the LMC.


I am hoping I can have Keith provide a guest blog post to share his new learning experiences with Adobe Digital School Collection with our readers. Congratulations Keith!!!  I also know that Keith is an avid Twitter user and utilizes Twitter in his High School library Media position to enhance his own professional development, but also shares a multitude of critical insights with others, and thought this next lead in- would tie in quite nicely.


According to the provided article of  “20 Innovative Ways High Schools Are Using Twitter” many colleges are utilizing Twitter to provide students with new and interesting ways to learning, but unfortunately, we still have many high schools - even in the Midwest- that are restricted from using a social media resource such as Twitter due to acceptable use policies. Those that are allowed to in k12 environment are taking great advantage of Twitter, and  are already doing amazing things. "Chatting with students in Pakistan, reporting high school football on the fly, and supplementing classroom discussion are just a few of the great ways high schools have made use of Twitter." 

How are you integrating Twitter into your High School classroom instruction to support and extend learning for each and everyone of your students? Or are you tapping into the stream to enhance your own professional development?   

Please share with me by February 6th ways or innovative  ideas of how you are utilizing Twitter, and I would like to create an infographic to visually display our learning results form the collection of responses with your name as a contributor to this new curated innovative ideas collection. You may add your thoughts to this blog post or tweet out your shared responses with noting the following hashtag #nharm in your tweet for easy retrieval of your innovative ideas.

Thanks for your contributions!!!

SchoolNet South Africa Conference Reflections

Well....I am back, back after being gone for a week of travel and presenting in Bloemfontein, South Africa to present at the national SchoolNet SA Conference. I was thrilled to be asked back for the third time by good friends Gerald Roos and Janet Thomson from School Net.

It is always an adventurous journey to travel to South Africa, as there is no direct flight of how to get there- but the longest part of the journey is the flight from Atlanta, Georgio to Johannesburg, South Africa of 17 hours. The total air travel and airport exchanges take about 24-30 hours one way.  So.... yes I am one tired girl today, but I have a few days to catch up on my sleep and acclimate back to the 7 hour time change.




Upon my arrival to the Bloemfontein, South Africa I was greeted by the most lovely Janet Thomson, Executive Director of SchoolNet, who assisted me with my transportation to the hotel we would be staying at, and to also preview the venue of the conference location. This year's conference wa…

Reenergize and Refocus This Summer- Change Your Mindset!

It has been a whirlwind of a month already and it is only June 3rd. It has been an amazing week working with my Intel family in Phoenix, AZ. The experience to design, create and contribute to the greater good of the future of education has filled my edtech bucket. I am so very thankful and grateful to Vanessa Jones, Theresa Maves, Anne Batey, the entire Big Monocol team and Lars Lindstrom's video crew as a collaborative team we worked on an incredible upcoming video segment to support a game-infused learning series of online coursework. Cannot share any more at this time- but this content will be a game-changer of how we deliver ongoing professional development in the education world. 
Working with inspired educators and incredible talented videographers has truly grounded me again this week, knowing that there are individuals in the edtech industry that constantly give 200%, never complain and contribute to a finalized product that will impact so many in so many countries worldwi…

Another Chapter In Our LIves- And I Am Questioning Why?

Greetings Edtech Leaders,

I am blogging tonight as I am traveling to Saskatoon, Canada and I have a story to tell, and hope you can bare with me. I have a scheduled technology keynote on Friday, Aprill 11th and a full day planned of hands-on workshops with some of the most inspirational teacher leaders, administrators and library media specialists in all of Canada. This journey has been in the works for over 18 months, to plan and prepare for this engaging technology event. But at the same time my family journey has taken a different route and the recent occurances have not been planned so well, and to prepare us for the next chapter in our lives. 

We received a call on Saturday evening that our 18 year old son who is in the US Army was in a severe motorcycle accident. This was the most heart-wrenching call a mother and father could receive- and at the same time we received this from our new daughter-in-law, Heather, of only 10 months. She was overwhelmed by what was about to take place…
