Goals? Or rewards?

October 17, 2017

A few more thoughts from the #OpenEd17  having read this blog post about it, which doesn’t really have anything to do with *this* blog post, except for a brief twitter conversation including the idea of a “goal that keeps moving forward” as encompassing education and life and professional development and everything. I thought of my […]

Not sure what reminded me of it, but when I made myself get on the bike at lunch because it wasn’t actually raining…  I remembered that inspiring video of Uri Treisman (Hello, at NCTM… )   and his plea that we should design education as the space program designed its hardware (at least back before Microsoft made […]

Okay, right this minute I’m wishing I were in Anaheim at the Open Ed conference.

The fates *almost* kept me from getting to the webinar (don’t know if it was recorded); I’d put it on my Outlook Calendar but since Microsoft had called for an update, I’d done a restart and didn’t start Outlook ’til halfway through it… Adobe Connect worked nicely *and* people could chat and share, unlike Those […]
