    Beautiful Mess Mashup


    For this weeks DS106 Assignment Bank Audio creation I chose to complete “Sounds of Your Day.” I first discovered this assignment last week, when trying to understand what exactly an “Assignment Bank” was exactly. I was first drawn to it, because right now my days are pretty LOUD. With one …

    Week 2 Reading Response: Remixing More Than Just Music


    Recently I’ve noticed more and more of my students reading graphic novels during their independent reading times, and I have to admit I sometimes think, should I encourage them to read a chapter book instead? However, I then remind myself that I’m just happy they are not only reading, but …

    I finally used Photoshop! Feeling proud.

    Today’s Daily Create asked us to search the web for an old paperback cover and use it to make a new cover. Staying with my interest of education here is what I came up with:

    A Teacher in a Tech World


    Yesterday after a busy day with my fourth graders I came home and spent hours in front of my computer, outside of my comfort zone. Blogs, Twitter, GIFs, oh my, all things I’ve never spent much time thinking about, and when I’m surrounded by report cards that need to be …
