Mash-up of cool stuff I read recently...
Too Good to Miss
Andrew Church has started the most interesting blog on Bloglines. I was frustrated because I could comment but if you haven't seen it- please check it out! In one particular post, He started a chart that compares traditional strategies with digital- no biggie I have seen that before-- but then-- and this is where I got very excited, he correlates it to the new Blooms. This chart has potential as an assessment tool for 21st Century learning. I am going to email him and strongly encourage him to do what Miguel Guhlin suggested of putting it up on a wiki and letting us all take a stab at expanding and refining it. Be sure and check it out!
Another new come blogger, long time thinker...Rob Mancabelli, an educator and nationally certified Project Management Professional (PMP) who works often with Will Richardson is really putting together some interesting thoughts over at Educational Thinking. I wish I had his gift for attention to detail. He must grimace when he reads my work with the misspellings and grammar errors. I write way too fast, always on my way to the next deadline. The link to the two page primer about Creative Commons really caught my eye.
This first-ever, international, one-of-a-kind “meetup” of educational bloggers will take place on Saturday, June 23rd, at the Georgia World Conference Center in Atlanta just before the start of NECC.
All are invited–whether you yourself blog, are just an educational blog reader, or even just want to hang out with an interesting group of people. The event is free, and you can indicate that you are coming (and see who else will be there) at the Edubloggercon wiki. This event will be unique in that it is going to be organized by the participants in real time at the wiki. We have access all that day to the large Open Source Pavilion room at the Conference Center and there will be free wi-fi: beyond that is up to you. So come join the discussion and help us plan a fun and stimulating experience.
Homeless Bloggers and Those Who Love Them...
I just thought I had it going on in keeping up with the Web 2.0 movement for the homeless. I am so pleased to have met Cara. Check out her blog Chosen Fast and all the amazing links to folks who might not be on your normal educational blogger RSS feed, but should be.
