A lawyer has distilled out the legislation in to all of the contract stripping that the government is forcing upon their chosen mediator!

To all that care about education in B.C.,
As we step forward into that deep abyss, where many unions have gone before us we should all be proud when we get people like this on our side! Please watch, comment and pass this video on because the truth needs to be heard!

Dear All,

I have been reading about this great new school that will come online in September 2012. Many of us have been working towards these ideas and the pedagogy supporting our many thoughts and ideas around a better way to educate. The innovative minds of +David Truss and @stwhiff have been leading this shift in our own B.C. public system. The idea centers around student inquiry that has the proper scaffolding and guidance from the teacher-mentor.
What an Alien, but seriously down to earth concept at the same time...

Dear People of the World,
Do any of you know of some blog posts or research that can help me develop my pedagogical bases around a more transparent class...The idea is that there is a great dialogue between teacher, student and parent that goes on digitally through the use of social media, so much so that the walls of the class seem to be less opaque. Parents are brought into the conversations that occur in the class and take more of a role at home in working with their children on the topic of the day. The role of teacher is then passed on to the parent and the learning continues outside the confines of the class.

To All,
Getting back to my latest work in the class, take a read and comment! I would love to find any resources that you may have read that could link my inquiry to pedagogy!

Still along the new Alien like journey...
As I was unpacking my ideas for my next inquiry, it seems that I have left myself a little open. This seems like it is the only way to make tracks…take risks! I am wanting to open up my class to our p...

If you enjoyed the web page on the Inquiry Hub, then you would probably enjoy the following post from +David Truss on this as well.

To All,
I have just gone through the process of unpacking a great video and the ideas therein. I am working to transform education like the rest of us all, so take a read and watch the video created by David Truss.

Last night we were working on unpacking some of Dr. Matthew J. Koehler ideas around TPACK. I Would like to see what you think about his ideas and about unpacking some of these ideas. If you want to read more see the ideas on the following website...tpack.org.
I have just taken a moment away from reading about Pedagogical and Content Knowledge or PCK to clear my brain. The way it is presented at times may also lead to a post on dry Research Writing. From my...

Tagline
Now more human with the support of a growing PLN and great PLC, once an Alien that is negotiating our universe...now more grounded, learning how to be technologically relevant with my grade 3/4 class.
Introduction
I am an educator in B.C. working on my portfolio of educational tools.  I work with a grade 3/4 class and together we have embarked on this journey together.  We are always willing to learn something new about the "read/write" web and any web x.0 technology that makes exploring our inter-planetary learning path!!!
Bragging rights
Survived years of travel from one continent to another...now situated on here in B.C. with my feet somewhat grounded!!!
