About Summer vacation has already begun for many educators in the United States. For some of us we have a few more weeks of school left. Summer is a time when many educators relax and recharge and allow themselves to learn something new. As life-long learners we sometimes look at increasing our knowledge and experience specifically in what we teach or it can be taking on the challenge of learning something new outside of normal, everyday comfort zone. In any […]
I can’t really say what I was expecting, coming to the Higher Ed Web 2012 Conference in Milwaukee. Left to my own devices, I would never have picked a conference for web professionals. I mean, I’m not one. I work with the web all day, and I can crank out a site using HTML and CSS in a pinch, but it’s not really my job. And yet, this week I found myself wandering the windy streets with a badge around […]

Tonight we focus on Professional Development. As many of us are preparing to head off into summer shortly we decided to take a look at how we can personally keep up with our own professional/personal development. I fully believe that if you are involved in education that you should be a lifelong learner and willing to learn even on “your own” time Show Host: Anne Truger (@atruger) Show contributors: Deb Truskey (@debtruskey) Patrick Black (@teachntech00) Here’s our Show Notes!

I had Presidents’ Day off from school recently. It’s one of the perks of being a teacher. Oh, don’t get me wrong. There are lots of perks when you are a teacher. Our day ends at 3pm. No weekend work. Long winter breaks, spring break, and of course, one of the main reasons all educators decide to become a teacher; summer vacation. Are you picking up on my sarcasm? I hope so, because I’m laying it on pretty thick. Actually, my […]

What happens when you throw a bunch of Apple Distinguished Educators (ADEs) in the middle of the Arizona desert for a week of sharing and learning? Some pretty amazing things! It was an absolute honor to be able to attend the ADE Summer Institute with such a phenomenal group of educators. The week-long institute was an opportunity for me to share, learn, and grow in ways I had never imagined. While I left the Institute with loads of valuable ideas […]
It’s only a few days away, but the EdReach team will be at ISTE (that’s the International Society for Technology in Education- for your newbies) in Philadelphia, PA. The conference starts Sunday, June 26th and runs until Wednesday, the 29th. We’ll be starting out on Saturday, though, at EdubloggerCon, which is a fabulous “unconference” hosted by Steve Hargadon. EdReach will be live blogging, taking pictures, and catching up with educators from all around the world. Although many of the sessions and […]
One of my first tasks in my new position in Forreston is to take a 29′ X 21′ space and turn it into a professional development room for teachers. I was not given a clear budget amount. I was asked to dream it, propose it, and worry about the finances later. So, I fired up my copy of Google SketchUp Pro (Illinois schools and educators have access to a FREE license) and I came up with the design idea at […]
February is an amazing month for educational technology conferences. It typically starts with the Florida Educational Technology Conference (FETC), then comes the Midwest Educational Technology Conference (METC), and this amazing month ends with the Illinois Computing Educators (ICE) Conference. Having the opportunity to attend (and present at) two of these three conference this year was amazing. So, with the Illinois Computing Educators (ICE) conference just wrapping up and February coming to a close up my thoughts begin turning toward the question: […]
