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!!!

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…
