Welcome to Slaughterhouse Four!

Thoughts from SocialEdCon

One of my favorite parts of ISTE has always (well, the four years I’ve attended) been EduBloggerCon, this year retitled to SocialEdCon. It’s a much smaller event and focused on conversations rather than presentations. It’s in an unconference style, people throw out topics and ideas, vote on their interests, and… Continue reading

Random Thoughts from ISTE

I noticed a trend at ISTE that I had not seen before (quite possibly because I just wasn’t paying attention in the past). The title on most people’s nametags was long. Sometimes this was because the individual is a central office person with a long title; sometimes the title involved… Continue reading

This Is My Story Tutorial 2 stars

Find a story worth talking about, my bike accident when I was little.
Sentence or two per index card
Find music for this particular story- iTunes-typed in instrumentals-sometimes it works to go blindly into something because the outcome can be fantastic.

Reading Toy Story

The goal was to pick a movie, preferably a classic. Toy Story, in my opinion, is one of the most creative films made so far. I chose two segments from this film that Roger Ebert’s discusses in his journal about “How to Read a Movie”.
Toy Story falls under the… Continue reading

Losing My Religion (and my sanity)

Dear Family,
This week is been great fun at Camp. Yet, while all this fun is going on, my sanity is wearing thin. I have been on a whirlwind of a trip through the amazing world of audio and video. Plus, my trip through video land is not finished quite… Continue reading

My Contribution to ds106 Radio

One of the recent assignments in ds106 was to work with a group to create an hour long show for ds106 radio. This was due shortly after we returned from ISTE12 so I was a bit concerned about getting it done. However, two and a half hours one evening and… Continue reading

My New Favorite Soda

I was always a Fresca fan (washes down the Sloppy Joes like no other beverage). But, now, I’ve got a new favorite.  Thinking of suing for copyright infringement, unless they put my face on the can!… Continue reading

Mission: DS106 – Return to the Silent Era

Fugitive card

Over the next few weeks, I’d like to look at some of my favorite crime films. Something about cops and robbers grabs me. Maybe it’s the loyalty and betrayal – or the chess match between good guys and bad guys racing to figure out where all the pieces… Continue reading

Post-ISTE Ramblings

I’ve got a few things, post-ISTE, I feel a need to respond to. None of these have to do with the conference, they are all in response to others’ responses to the conference. Sheesh, that’s a bit absurd when I type it.
ISTE always brings out strong feelings from people… Continue reading
