It's always amazing to me to see how social media tools have been leveraged to bring big conferences to the world for free. I remember my first efforts to do this in Texas, and I'm gratified to see that free educator sharing model has flourished!


Ok, so here are some of the resources I've been keeping track of...where can I find other curated resources?

Over the last few months (January through June, 2018), I've had a chance to crank out a few blog entries over at the TCEA TechNotes blog. I thought it might be fun to do a quick count to see where I stood with blog entries published by TCEA.org's blog, which as you may know, has been selected by EdTech Magazine several years in a row now as a must-read blog.

Hang on...let's see how many that is as of 6/25/2018, I have written this many blog entries:


Woohoo! That's the total number so far in June, 2018. Wait, not exactly. I did get the chance to write an article for USA Today. It appears in the list below but I did not include it in the count above. Of course, that doesn't count the blog entries I've ghost-written for others. ;-)

Special Thanks to TCEA.org for editing (what a tough job!) and publishing my writing as blog entries. I know it's tough to deal with my focused, scattered approach to blogging about education. Thanks for putting up with my pressure t…

One early summer morning, probably around 1:30AM on the weekend, I received a complaint tweet. It went something along the lines of the following:
I really like all the education resources you share but not the politics. The complaining tweet, from another education professional, took a moment to read. It came in response to an article I had bookmarked for later reading. It dealt with a topic that might be summarized by this cartoon:

The tweet, nicely worded, immediately ticked me off. When I created my twitter account, I did not say I would keep my political views to myself. I often do keep them to myself because arguing politics is boring. Advocating on behalf of…

USA Today Publishes...Me? #STEM

Please allow me to share some exciting news with you (as well as an article). The June, 2018 issue of USA Today's Education and Career News MediaPlanet posted an article I wrote for my work with TCEA. I'm delighted to share it with you, and grateful to TCEA's Lori Gracey and Susan Meyers (editor) for their support.

USA Today. Woohoo!

Read the tweet by TCEA:

Here's the lead:
Ready to inspire classroom innovation in a STEM world? Create extraordinary experiences that make applying STEM skills to real life problem-solving simple. The article goes on to offer specific suggestions, such as:

The actual article is much longer. I even created a set of resources to go with it. See those at the link below:
