I love conducting workshops for organisations that embrace change and take steps to move forward. Sometimes, however, it feels like hit-and-runs as I pollinate one flower after another.   “DSC_6250” (CC BY-NC-SA 2.0) by  Suraj P. Singh’s Photography   …

One aspect of teaching is to communicate ideas. But simply sending a message does not guarantee that is it received as intended. Video source Video source These two Bad Lip Reading videos on YouTube illustrate just that. There is the proper movie script…

This blog entry by David Geurin reminded me why I shudder when I hear these two words put together: Teacher and training. My stance has not changed, when I was a professor and teacher educator then, and as a provider of professional development now for…

Last week I read a tweet that recommended a blog entry. I skimmed the latter and found an image quote with words attributed to Samuel Papert. I was sure the person meant Seymour Papert. The quote was also poorly attributed as it was cited in someone…

Some Twitter users die, but not literally. They stop using the service for a long time and then rise from the dead to feast. I have noticed some who seem to tweet or retweet only at major events.   "Zombies!!!" (CC BY-NC-SA 2.0) by  cjggbella    Is there…

This is not one of my better image quotes. It has been sitting in a Google Slide deck for a while. But the words are more important than the image. I got the quote partly off a tweet from my Twitter stream a while ago. Unfortunately, I did not take note…

"Lo Hei!" (CC BY-NC-ND 2.0) by  tallphil    Reunion dinners during the Lunar New Year are ripe for conversations that are inane and mundane. Two people at my table started talking about how my son inherited my flat feet. As if to go one up, my wife…

“Monkey Lanterns” (CC BY-NC-SA 2.0) by  chooyutshing  Instead of wishing people a happy Chinese New Year, I make it a point, at least in writing, to remind folks that it is a Lunar New Year. Yeah, I am fun to be around. The fact is that the Lunar New Year…

This tweet made me pause for thought and to recall what I think about “the future” of schooling and education. The future is nearer than we think. Are we equipping our students to be #FutureReady? #ictlt2016 https://t.co/6e5eGncCmf — Theresa (@3sachu)…
