  For the entire month, we've been collecting and posting daily ideas for making connections as an offshoot of the Connected Courses. The aim was to find fun ways to get folks to collaborate with each other, modeled on the ever-wonderful Daily Create from DS106. Our Daily Connect ends today, but really, nothing ever ends on the Internet, right? So, we created a Random Daily Connector button....
Connected Education needs a Panama Canal to connect the real thinking by those who are thinking, to those who are practicing, but often not thinking. The Panama Canal was a concrete grounded-in-the-real-world connection that solved the real world problem of how to connect the Atlantic and the Pacific without having to travel around South America. This was not a solitary problem. It was a problem...

It’s Connecticut Educator Month (CEM) and a great space for reflecting on the Connecticut Writing Project at Fairfield University’s alteration of summer work.  As I catch my breath from all the energy harvested in June, July, and August, I realize there is no time to breathe! The fall semester has already began. Graduate courses to teach (Grading, such a leech) PD in K-12 schools (top-down...

(Click on the image to go to the K12Online Video Game) I suggested to the various colleagues/presenters in the Game Design/Gamification strand of the K12Online Conference that we try to design a game for participants of the conference to play. The goal was to use game design principles to engage participants in the presentations (still being released over the next few weeks) in ways beyond just...
A version of this post appeared earlier today at my blog. Today's make for Connected Educator Month is "Make Some Fabulous Food."  Right up my alley! I made tofu scramble tacos, my take on a recipe from Post Punk Kitchen. I started with garlic plus half a shallot and a whole jalapeño, including the seeds.  Cooking the scramble with the jalapeño seeds gives it a wonderful spicy hotness. Garlic...
    Why is it that when young people use technology on adult terms, they are praised as 21st century learners, but when they use technology on their OWN terms, they are castigated as deviant rule-breakers?   Nicole Mirra, Innovators, Not Hackers. Stop Portraying Youth as Digital Deviants   This quote from Nicole Mirra’s post on DML stuck with me after I read it not long after it appeared on DML...

Write Your Community: That is the challenge made by the 2014 National Day on Writing on Monday, Oct. 20. The Morehead Writing Project took this challenge very seriously. We work hard to write our community as well as create a community of writers whenever two or more writers are gathered in our name. We are particularly excited by how this will play out during our regional observation of National...
A version of this post appeared yesterday at my blog. My students have been writing commentaries about The House on Mango Street for about a month. I modified Sheridan Blau’s format to account for the fact that I’m working with 9th-graders instead of college students. At the beginning of the year, my students often respond to challenging tasks by remaining quiet and waiting for help.  With this...
