Bob Sprankle and I will be guests on next week’s Ed Tech Talk.  If you haven’t given Ed Tech Talk or an Ed Tech Talk Brainstorm  a listen, you’re really missing out.

Wiki Problem Resolved

    I’ve just installed MediaWiki on my site.  I thought it would be a pain, but it wasn’t.  I’ll be updating and transferring stuff from the old wiki to this one over the next couple of days.  If you get bored, you’re welcome to help.    Seems like there might be some new content […]

Author Blogs

November's Coloradoan Column

    Here’s my most recent column for the local paper.  Hope it’s useful.  Are any of you participating in NaNoWriMo?  I’d love to hear your stories.  I thought about joining this year — but my life is just too full.  Besides – -I’m doing the nonfiction version of NaNoWriMo through this blog.  So often […]

Long Distance Conferencing

    I’m missing out on two conferences that I usually attend — the NCTE Fall Convention and the .  Luckily, I’m able to get a feel for what’s going on thanks to the bloggers attending in my stead.  I’m blogging what I find over at our CSUWP blog so that I can keep others […]
