i c u

Hello teacher candidate. I have been thinking a lot about you this week. To be honest, I think about you often in the last month of school. There is something about the energy at the end of the year that makes me nostalgic. I think about do overs and do no mores and...

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...
