Back in the groove...

Hello fellow Global Learners!

I was reading through Emily’s recent post and came to realize how much I can relate to her. I am also suffering from the “technology blues” and was so grateful to find out that I’m not alone. I was so eager over the summer preparing for this year, and then school just sort of got in the way. I got comfortable with a couple things – blog comments on our class blog, viewing films on United Streaming, Clicker lessons, and I stuck with those, not really adventuring into anything else. Then I began creating films for this year’s Film Fest, which is new for me, and that has monopolized all of my energy.

But I’m stepping up! I’m trying to refresh and recommit myself. I have some new ideas that I’m excited about. Keep your eyes peeled for some upcoming projects… we’re in the middle of a data and graphing project and we’ll somehow be posting our findings. I also plan to post student poems on our website and blog, and of course our much anticipated films for the Film Fest. I'm trying to get back in the groove.

Jill,

First, I am supper excited to hear there are going to be films from Rose Hill this year in the festival. That rocks! We look forward to seeing the RH point of view expressed.

Second, it sounds like you took on a lot this year. All those things that you described are wonderful gateway technologies and take time to get addicted to. Love to hear about some of the things you did: what worked? What didn't? What should we all be doing more of to succeed with our students?

Finally, I am definitely going to keep my eyes peeled for some upcoming projects. You are not alone in this effort (although it probably feels different most of the time). Jump on Skype and start a chat when you want support.

Joe
