Blogger. 10 Minute Teacher Podcast. Teaching students with new tools, enthusiasm, and belief that teaching is a noble calling. This is an archive of my blogger blog since I started blogging here before I set up www.coolcatteacher.com
I love how this teacher is truly emerging into the blogosphere, after a comment from me, and pinging technorati with thoughts, this teacher's post has received noticed from the bloggers at the Wikinomics blog. This teacher is doing an excellent job with blogging and we're only seeing the beginning.
I've been spending some time on the various microblogging places and really don't have time to go to all of them, so now, I've used pingfm to update them all. (There is a place to go to get the most recent invite beta code, that will be my next link.) This great tutorial got me started on pingfm so that it will update all of the services I use. Very nice tutorial.
Notes on the wiki presentation that I did with Adam Frey -- I'm saving all of these and also want to link to those who took the time to link and write about the sessions that I was a part of. Thank you for such a great outline!
This teacher was banned from using the freedom writers diary in her classroom and now has been suspended. I don't know all of the facts, however, I have to wonder why the school sent her to a Freedom Writers workshop and then wouldn't let her use the book.
I do respect the desire to limit the profanity -- I wish that perhaps there was a explitive-free version of the book to handle this issue, however, it looks like this entire issue was mishandled. It grieves me as more issues like this seem to be happening in schools. I haven't read this book to have my own opinion, but would love to hear from some of you who have.
