Beg, borrow, and steal... that's what the best teachers end up doing with good ideas that will improve our teaching, right? By all means, please do, and let me know how it goes!

General Discussion about Digital Writing  - 
 
As we think about how to engage students as digital writers, we may want to explore their -- and our own -- reading practices as well. I am trying to write a blog post each day this week about my own digital reading practices as a way of thinking through this.

Thanks for sharing these links. My students choose their reading strategies. Some use Diigo to highlight the main ideas and annotate their understanding and their questions; they add a summary as one annotation. Some like using Google Presentation, to take notes, one slide for similar ideas. Some use Google docs and make lists of categories and add in the details.Some color code their notes. Some like paper. What I really like is when they share their strategies and learn from each other. Now...to dig deeper...with those strategies.  Here is an old post: http://askwhatelse.wordpress.com/2009/06/15/diigo-in-writing-class/

Members and friends of the Michigan Opt-Out Action Team will gather to discuss reasons for opt-out and possible opt-out actions. We will share information and plan next steps. This event will be of interest to everyone who is interested in young peoples' learning, whether you are newly curious about why parents might choose to opt-out of standardized testing, or whether you are dedicated to the opt-out movement and ready to act. 
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Troy Hicks. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

One thing I will share is this community, Digital Is, and #clmooc through a blog post and twitter. Is there anything you are doing we can help with?

K-12 Teaching in the 21st Century  with Dr. Rick Ferdig and Dr. Kristy Pytash

This free course is aimed at high school students, pre-service teachers, and in-service teachers who are interested in a conversation about using 21st century tools for teaching.

I've been asked by Rick and Kristy to be a part of this MOOC and hope that other members of the CDW community might be interested, too!

I've been invited to help out with this MOOC offered by +Rick Ferdig and Kristine Pytash. Looking forward to the opportunity and hope that many teachers -- from Michigan and beyond -- will join in.
