I have admired Dean Shareski for quite some time now and what I’m about to share is exactly why. Dean has put together a keynote for the K12 Online Conference 2010 about the obligation of teachers to share in education today. Please take the time to watch this articulate, eloquent, and powerful message and then be sure to SHARE IT!

Thank you, Dean, for taking the time to create and put forth such an inspiring message.

Top 100 Technology Blogs for Teachers

About a week and a half ago, I received a comment on this blog from a reader asking me to email them so they could get some more information about me and my blog. So as any good, cautious Internet user does; I did some checking and found that Alexis Brett is a blogger on a site called http://www.onlinedegrees.org/blog. After a few emails back and forth, I offered some input about who I am and what I like to blog about. I just recently received another email from Alexis with a link to a recent post she wrote about the Top 100 Technology Blogs for Teachers. I was humbled and honored to see my blog listed as one of those 100. It is truly an honor to be on the same list as many of the people I follow and admire myself such as: Silvia Tolisano – Langwitches, Angela Maiers – AngelaMaiers.com, Wes Fryer – Moving at the Speed of Creativity, Bob Sprankle – Bit by Bit, Steve Dembo – Teach42, and Jeff Utecht – The Thinking Stick just to name a few. Alexis has put together a tremendously diverse and thorough list of educational blogs that is absolutely worth checking out if you’re looking for some new favorites. I would also like to say thank you again to Alexis Brett of http://www.onlinedegrees.org/blog for including me on a great list with so many fellow ed tech community members.
