EDyoga – next gen [collision 3]

I have not engaged with big picture EDU in a responsive and responsible manner. And to get global in my pedagogy, I will ned a mentor. I became aware of the U.N.'s Global Goals back in September. I thought connecting a newly formed TED-Ed Club with these elements...

EDyoga – next gen [collision 2]

My learning spaces need [re]consideration. In a previous life I would have sat through a two hour PD session, then probably bemoaned my aching back afterward. I also probably would have, in some way, evaluated the quality of the PD by how my head and body felt...

EDyoga – next gen [collision 1]

I am still in a silo.  AND the digital reach that I have pursued has not yet broken me out of it. I am reminded of this daily, I guess in a good way, with every PD session I attend outside of my school board and with every podcast and with every virtual high five I...

EDyoga – next gen [an admission]

I feel like a whole lot of random is shaking out of this 'end of year' moment. Things that I thought I would keep doing  I am suddenly less than happy to continue and other odd pieces are rising back up into my view. [check out my flipgrid questions] All in all, it...

EDyoga – next gen [provocation]

One time, in the middle of an ed -tech camp, I heard a colleague mention that 18th and 19th-century learners probably thought their skills were modern as well. The presenter had just huffed through a detailed pitch for a new app that could potentially revolutionize...

Edyoga – open source

I keep a stack of post-its on my night table. What teacher doesn't... right? Often, I will get ideas in the middle of the night that rattle me out of sleep. The ideas sometimes are so random in nature that when I look at the scratches with my full attention the next...

Edyoga – stretched

Sigh. I pursue my next pedagogical iteration with gusto, every day. Modern Learning? I'm in! Connected with a Twitter PLN? Fershur. Teacher Blog? TEDEd...bring it on! EdTech presentation? Build a digital PLN? Here you go! U betcha! There is something thrilling in...

Edyoga – iFlow

Achieving 'Flow' means a lot to me. And I can admit that my mono-tasking, hyper focus on it's pursuit, drives me to distraction at times. I can't help it. At nearly every turn I am aware of my movement in space, my thoughts in my mind, the distances and connections...

Edyoga – being iterate

I have watched my kids' immersion in creation and design for some time now. Maddie 8 and Jake 6 exist in a state of creative evolution that is breathtaking. When I am caught in their 'Flow,' I get lost.The most striking thing about their process is the effortlessness...

Edyoga – u r wlcm

The language of education is complex. I often forget the constancy of codified, jargonized, technical, and acronym-ical terms we use each day. We deal in it fast and loose. The common tongue can unify in most cases. But what about the moments of dislocation? How do we...
