  1. Freebies for Educators

    Just found a great website listing freebies for educators. http://www.freakyfreddies.com/teacher.htm Do you know of any special offers geared towards teachers to share?  Time and money always seems to be in short supply.  Perhaps some of these sites will help a tad for some of us.

  2. What's a drupal?

    I haven’t posted here for a little while, and the main reason is that I’ve been swamped with getting the new DEN website ready to roll.  I love the new website, and love it even more so because I’ll be able to add new features to it on a regular basis.  However, know what I […]

  4. Wiki Wisdom

    I cross-posted this entry on my cliotech blog.  If you get a chance to check out the fall issue of Education Week’s Digital Directions magazine, please look for article “Wiki Wisdom.” Fellow Pennsylvania STAR Discovery Educator, Kristin Hokanson, and I were among several educators interviewed for this article. The article explores professional use of wikis […]

  6. Back to School with STAR Status

    By now, most of us have settled into our routines – our lessons are planned, our seating charts are set and we are starting to memorize our students’ names.  But don’t forget another really important back to school essential…your STAR status!

I got a graphic reminder of that this weekend when my wife and I traveled out to Grand Lake, Colorado to see our […]

  12. Viral Video

Unlike the amateur Super Bowl commercial contests, details […]
