Although a golden sunrise is wonderful, my light came from driving through the tunnel leaving the airport in Boston this week :)

Thinking of spaces...
I found this picture on Pinterest.  It comes with the following observation:  
"Loved this figure in the entrance area of a school I visited today. Made from scrap resources by the children and just indicating that 'we do really interesting things in here'.  Does your entrance area reflect your pedagogy?"
This has me thinking about how the public spaces in our schools reflect what is happening there (including my own education spaces).  Take a look around your spaces - what do you see and what does it say about what happens there?  Anything you would change?  When was the last time you sat there as a user of the space (a student maybe) and looked through that lens?

What a great question about the public entrances reflecting the experiences inside the public space (our schools). We have a huge wood carving done by students in our school foyer that I think does a nice job of this messaging.

From the +Scott Glass post about fictitious album covers, I just had to go play :)  Here is my #FictictiousAlbum   #remix   #clmooc  

"Alternative Rock band North Slob is back on top with their signature sound.  The laid-back vocals and earthy tones ease listeners into this collection of stress-free sound."

I think PREZI is more versatile, with the possibility of embedding links and videos and other files. Emaze is a novelty and has visual attractive effects, but has more limitations.

It's ambitious, but I want to try using Classcraft with some students.  It's a role-playing game that you can use with any curriculum.  Think Class Dojo without the cute animated characters.

Love how SAMR is visualized here!
 
Hi everyone. New to sketchnotes but decided to use the method to study for the Praxis. I took a break today and drew this. Definitely got the idea from +Sylvia Duckworth's picture.

For Make Cycle 5, I turn to Storybird to reflect on my role as Internet Sherpa through the huge online public space.

Thanks for sharing this. I hadn't explored Storybird as a tool - love what you've made with it. I also appreciate your sharing your story about life pre and post internet.

Great coincidence for National Ice Cream day! I did not know. I took this picture with two teenage girls we are hosting as part of an International Peace Project. They were stunned by the ice cream aisle in the supermarket. Very interesting to see our grocery store through the eyes of someone who lives outside the US.

2015 MC #4 All Systems Go  - 
 
Wanting to try out the Museum idea utilized by +Susan Watson for her great Obscure Joys & Sorrows, I went and grabbed the template.

Although I didn't do as much customization, I got the general idea.

My system... the student brain.  A very complex system that every educator would love to understand.  My piece here does not do it justice, but it begins a journey for me.  I love the idea of presenting this topic as a workshop to staff with the museum as a "take away" for them.  Instead of a list of resources, they can explore some of the highlights by wandering around the museum.

For my game:

We are a GAFE school and I wanted to utilize something that would be easily accessible by all.  Richard Byrne had written a post about Flippity some time ago - I took this opportunity to try it out.  I thought that this could be a neat opener for a staff meeting at the beginning of the year (I would choose different questions) - something light and fun to get us going as a team.

I also like the idea of using this with students, especially if they write their own questions.  I love that videos can be embedded - that creates a whole new level of quiz question!  I could have roving reporters (like Jeopardy) that make quick videos around the school for quiz questions!
