Stuff Changes. Or Not. Transformation Isn’t a One Time Thing.

Sat, 14 Oct 2017 13:46:41 PDT

A class I was involved in a little while back took a few minutes to write together the other day about a time “before technology,” “after technology,” and “personal technology.” To be honest, I wasn’t sure if I should share my writing there, but it turns out I have a blog – so I can … Continue reading "Stuff Changes.

Faking It

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 08:12:25 PDT

  # I’m working with a couple groups of teachers next week who want to explore the idea of blogging as a way of promoting inquiry and professional growth in their practice.

Seek Less Permission

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 17:49:21 PDT

Over the weekend, I read Dan’s post. I thought it was the right thing to say, and a good way to think about moving a networkish kind of community-esque thing into a better place in a time of networked publicness1 . # Stephen’s take is a good reminder of one of my Internet teacher pet peeves: … Continue reading "Seek Less Permission"

Just Read, Dammit.

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 08:48:19 PDT

A couple of small things intersected in a timely fashion in my Twitter feeds yesterday.1 # The first was this piece in the Washington Post about a district administrator in Florida who has banned all homework in elementary school – save for reading twenty minutes a night: # Elementary school students in one Florida school … Continue reading "Just Read, Dammit."

Badges. They’re Still Not What I Thought They Were.

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 19:52:32 PDT

I’ve been working lately on some resources related to telling stories about the work that the Badges Team of the New Pathways Initiative has inspired and/or been influenced by. I’ve written some about the team and our work – but not enough. I need to do that more. But what I want to capture right … Continue reading "Badges. They’re Still Not What I Thought They Were."

On Turning 39

I’m writing tonight from a room at the National Writing Project’s Resource Development Retreat in Denver. I’ve been here the last couple of days, working to build some resources and support some other folks to get things made. Several of the NWP’s initiatives and projects are represented here, and there’re folks working on making assignments … Continue reading "On Turning 39"

Tying My Shoes

Late last week, I relearned how to tie my shoes. # I’m not kidding. # Every Friday in my office, my team and I sit together for a weekly team meeting. It’s our chance to be together at the end of a long week, catch each other on what’s been happening and what we’ve been … Continue reading "Tying My Shoes"

I’m writing today at the tail end of a National Writing Project Building New Pathways for teacher Leadership Convening in New Orleans.  For the last year, I’ve been working with a smart team of NWPeeps to think about the role of badging and micro credentials in supporting new pathways for teacher leaders in the National … Continue reading "On Not Solving Problems"

Losing My Pigeon

Fri, 07 Oct 2016 16:27:38 PDT

I’ve been quiet in this space these last several months. I’m still finding my space and place as a consultant and library person. It’s a great transition – but there are many moments of my work of late that aren’t bloggable, and I’ve remembered that it’s easier, often, to keep quiet than to thread the … Continue reading "Losing My Pigeon"
