A great project!!

"Imagine if you can, a weathered old cowboy out on the Great Western Cattle Trail around 1860, driving Texas long horn beef out toward Dodge City, Kansas. His huge Texas fedora is pulled low over his eyes to keep out the dust the cattle kicked up. The prairie is without fence for as far as he can see. The old west is still alive."

Follow that same trail today with Elderbob. The project begins on Labor Day. You can post comments and questions.

Teacher Rules and improving learning and teaching

This is an insightful article that suggests your creating your rules for you as a teacher can improve teaching and learning for your students.

I think the rules she suggests are valuable and can change the entire sense of community and learning in a classroom.

The entire website is one with lots of food for thought!!!! Engaging kids in serious work.

We should have taken a close look at Webquests in Teaching Professions. Particularly now that there are design patterns with some great examples of each.
They can be found at this link.

What power for learning!!

The main webquest page at this link has so many resources.

Ed Reform

Now that I have an opportunity to read the posts on the lists to which I subscribe, I've reviewed this Ed Reform Website which offers resources galore for old and new teachers!!!

First Blogging attempt: How can this be used as a tool for learning and teaching?

It's been a while since I had time to review Bernie Dodge's work. He's working to extend webquests and to blogs and wikis.

His work here prompted this blog.

I hope it can become useful in looking forward to technologies that enhance teaching and learning and that some of my former students join me on this adventure.
