Blog Catch Up

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

I haven’t been writing a lot lately and once again it comes back to reading…I just can’t find the time to read blogs in my schedule. No reading=No writing=No Learning. The funny part is…it frustrates me.

So here it is 4:11am in the morning and am making time to read. Here’s some of the stuff I’m catching up on.

$100 Laptop in Nigeria: Both Will and Chris point to this. I would love to be involved with this here in China. Not sure who to contact. But to be able to got out into the villages and teach kids how to use these tools…talk about fulfilling!

Assessments in Studios: I miss reading Clarence. He’s so ‘in it’ with his students, working through this new studio of his and very reflective. I just read this one post and need to make it a priority to read Remote Access daily.

I’m missing out on a lot in the blogosphere right now. This last day is just an example of what I’ve been busy doing.

6:30- Get home from work
6:45- Chat with Tim Wilson about a Skype conference later with teachers and admin.
7:30- Eat a wonderful dinner made by MAWW (Most Amazing Wonderful Wife)
8:00- Run through presentation for 3am class with Sheryl
9:00- Get some work done and Skype conference with Tim Wilson’s participants
11:00 Go to bed
2:15am – Get ready for Sheryl’s class
3:am – Present to students
4:00 am – Refill my coffee cup

Don’t get me wrong…I’m not complaining here. I love all of it, and could say no to any of it if I wanted. But there are so many learning activities outside of the blogosphere now days that maybe I don’t need it as much? I’ve said this before, but this year is different. I’ve spent more time on Skype in these first 4 months then I did all last year. Maybe this is the beginning of a transition? A transition of spaces. I feel like I’m still learning, still reflecting, just in a different places. So maybe my missing the blogosphere is me hanging onto the old way and I have to find a new way to reflect in this space……more on this later….for now it’s time for morning Yoga.

I started blogging in 2005 and found it such a powerful way to reflect and share my thinking about technology, this generation, and how we prepare students for their future not our past.
