I just finished attending the Connections Conference 2012 (aka connex12).  Many good session in three days at Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC. The picture attached came from an assignment in a session led by Melissa Scott in which we had to find an image of a person, attach a quotation from a second person who had some relation to the first, and attribute the quotation to a third person related to the other two.  I'm looking forward to trying this with my students. The image is from an app for my iPad called Strip Designer.

New start, or false start?

Coming in from the cold! (my photo)
As you can tell from my previous post, it's been a while since I've maintained this blog.  In that interval, I've been tempted to delete it.  Still, I've always liked to keep a record of where I've been, and perhaps this will turn into such a record for my educational journey.  Right now, my educational journey takes me through the Connex12 conference at Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC.  So far, I've learned a lot, and I've taken copious notes which will keep me busy through the summer.  My immediate motivation for attending this conference is that iPads are being introduced into my Montessori mixed-grade 4th and 5th grade class at the Barrie School next year.  I'm thinking that this blog might just be a record of how that goes as well.
