I remixed AND made a (glitchy-but-hey!) NEW webpage with Thimble. Here is my "Tyvek and Me" remix of +Chad Sansing 's All About Me template. Feel free to remix - and big thanks to Chad for advice and for making the template for #clmooc. The new page I made is linked off this one and is called "More Inspirations".

At +Chad Sansing's school, just finished writing up some notes to guide my thinking...students in his room want more Raspberry Pi's, want Tinkertags, want to help me with ebook ideas. I want to join in as they work on idea for voice sensor using different pitch, volume to trigger LED pictures. Can't wait to be learner in study group with Chad and +Paul Oh : )

just got back from LA and setting up for school, but still collecting people and ideas re use of Daily 5 in school libraries. Let me know if you'd like to join us!

"D's must not approve deal that asks nothing of the richest in America -- richer now than ever & paying lowest tax rate in 80 yrs."

and they own more in terms of percentage of total assets and social mobility is way down....

No more "hey, I guess they don't care" - Amazon spells it out, and the answer re how we most want to use Kindles in libraries and classrooms is NO.
