What should school be? Ask K-12 to tell us please.
 
I'm looking for students to make short 1-2 min. videos telling "what school should be" for the K12 Online Conference. More info below or contact me. TIA and please share.

Do you love words? I do, love playing with new ones that I have no fixed idea on how to use. Can I say this? "I will not act like a williwaw today." Ha!

This is my new favorite word

The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails. - William Arthur Ward

I just like saying this word: Williwaw wil·li·waw /ˈwilēˌwô/. How would I use this word, you ask? How about..

"A williwaw rose up out of nowhere, blowing our tents away and messing up the campsite."

There you go. Now how will you use this word? Have a great Wednesday!

Reading Fiction Is Therapy
Reading, and perhaps writing, fiction makes us more empathetic and can help cure what ails us, it seems. This is a fascinating article about fiction literally being prescribed . . . read it for yourself. Treat yourself.

Creative Writer and Non Profit Innovator
Introduction
Grants from Google, The Dudley T. Dougherty Foundation, People's United Community Foundation, and the Frances R. Dewing Foundation have allowed my nonprofit, BIG FUN education, to create Big Fun PLAYS for K-12. Students listen to an audio play while following an illustrated script on screen. Related nonfiction pieces, acting exercises, and discussion prompts are embedded in the scripts. 40 academic words are targeted in each play and have clickable explanations. We motivate and scaffold students towards cross-curricular knowledge and bring the text exemplars in Appendix B of the CCSS to life. www.BigFunEducation.org We are currently adding a series of paperback books for schools that include the script from our free online plays and also include lots of writing, reading, thinking, and connecting activities.

I am currently seeking funding for a new project called Reading Without Borders. The idea is to get people knowledgeable about Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics to read to a child each week for 20 minutes using Google Hangouts or Skype. Soon, I'll collect would-be volunteers and teachers via a Google Form.

I started desktop publishing with a Mac in 1985. I created and sold a series of plays and related board games called Classic Theater for Children. After coverage in the New York Times  and the International Herald Tribune, we sold to all 50 states and 10 other countries. In 1991, I sold the company to Sundance Publishers. Recently, the rights reverted to me.

In 2009, I created an online motivational learning community for Connecticut. We had almost 70,000 paid subscribers and reliably raised test scores. 20% of our players stayed on our site for over an hour. 6% of our target demographic was enrolled. We gamified the work ethic and taught basic skills. People's United Community Foundation funded our initiative to reduce the loss of skills over the last two summers.

INTERESTS: standup comedy, writing fiction, photo walks, dogs

My parents had their own BBC radio show in the 1950s.
