I was excited to learn that my teacher partner and I received a grant from the Silicon Valley Education Foundation to purchase a set of Smart Response devices. These handhelds help students and teachers make assessment more fun and personal. Check out future grant funding dates from SVEF. It's a great organization.
The article I had published in the April/May '09 Innovate Journal regarding my new learning theory now has a new link. It can be found at
"A Learning Theory for 21-Century Students". Then click the link for the April/May 2009 issue. They have also archived the interview they conducted with me regarding the article, at ULiveandLearn Webcast.
Currently I'm working at my local middle school teaching 7th grade Language Arts and a Technology elective. My stint as the district's Instructional Technology Teacher on Special Assignment ended this year, due to budget cuts.
I am teaching several classes at RAFT this fall. Check out their offerings at www.raft.net.
