Anyone still in session? I am leading another Google Hangout workshop and looking to do a Mystery Location call with a class of students to help teachers learn how to play this game and join this community. My sessions are on Tuesday, June 23. Looking for a connection at 11:00am and 3pm PST.

Never underestimate the power of choice. I like to call it "handmade" education. Great post Karl!

Hi Karl. Your forget you do so much to impact beyond your classroom like EdcampSFBAY, presenting at numerous conferences, #caedchat, and this very blog. That being said, I think you will make a phenomenal administrator!

+Karl Lindgren-Streicher  Hopefully as more teachers begin to switch their mindsets about "how school works" you will find more students like your sidenote scenario. My hope with my new school is to continue to capture the curious nature of students and foster that genuine love for learning all the way through middle school. Best wishes on your 2015 journey! Thanks for the fabulous post! #YourEdustory

Sphero brings interactive coding and fun to your home and your classroom! My new blog post: #caedchat   #spheroEDU   #edtech   #edchat  #hourofcode

What a great idea! I need a blogging "support group." ;)

Just had a disturbing conversation the other day regarding teachers who blog and share the happenings of their classroom (which I have always been open to sharing my classroom and ideas through my blog appeducation.com). However this conversation implied that to "some" this is perceived as bragging. I felt a huge thump in my heart when I heard this and have been in a funk ever since. 

Never have I considered my blog a place to "brag" or "boast" but rather a place to share my ideas and hopefully get feedback. I always perceive edu bloggers as brave for opening their classroom doors to the world leaving themselves wide open for criticism.

I haven't blogged about this yet, but would love your input and/or ideas. What do you think about all of this? Why do some see sharing, blogging, tweeting as a negative thing? Do you have any inspiring words from the wise to pull me out of this blogging funk?

Even now I am hesitating posting this... ;)
