If my child was enrolling in school today, I’d ask to see some sample portfolios or where I could access them online. This is a hidden, little requested artifact that can probably tell you more about the progressiveness of a school than anything else!

I keep trying to find ways to implement technology within my classroom, but the lack of available computers and the super-strong web filtre always keeps me from doing it.  I might try to find a way around these problems this summer. 

My more professional, full-length blog that I have only recently begun updating again.

Oh, muffins! said she once kept a separate blog for her running, and had trouble keeping the two up so she blended them into one.  I think I’m going to imitate her because I’m having the same issue.  I have too many interests, and so I think I’m just going to dump them all into the same blog.  Hope it works for me as well as it has worked for her!

One of the blogging platforms suggested for easy student blogging.

I follow this blog even though I do not teach at the elementary level.  She has a good handle on using student blogs, and a few good resources at the end of the slideshow.  Since it is something I am considering this year with my high school students, It was good information.
