Scavenger hunts and connectivism

At the Questionmark User's Conference here in San Antonio. Having some good ed-tech related fun down here. This one is a smaller conference, and I like those as opposed to the biggie ones since you actually get a chance to meet and network with people.

Happy Holidays…cleaning out the closet

And so once again the holidays are upon us. 2007 has been a stressful in both our work and personal lives. Dear friends of ours are moving away, we have met up with new old friends this year, and have been adjusting to life back in the land of the living.

The Chronicle of Higher Luddites penned an eediot diatribe completely tearing down the very things we hold dear: educational technology.

It’s 115 degrees Fahrenheit

I am broiling, well maybe not anymore as I am in the hotel room, but still. Things shouldn't get this hot. Al Gore, save me. The wife loves Vegas, and I don't really care for it. It's like one gaudy overgrown amusement park. It is getting better for me though, and I have grown to […]

I am building a Frankenstein

Between my wife getting her gall bladder removed and my sister getting a kidney taken out, I am going to start a Frankenstein monster. I figure I have a long way to go. As of now I would have the rudiments of a digestive system. The most I could actually stomach donating would be a […]
