Twenty Ten

The first three weeks have gone by in a blur and I have not blogged or tweeted much.  It seems to go that way for me, either I can't write the blog posts fast enough to keep up with ideas or I have no time to sit and write and my mind is blank.

Our school is about to pilot an open wireless program and I have been working with a team to compile suggestions for teachers who are really not all that comfortable with the prospect.  We want to offer them some management solutions and ideas for harnessing the power of student mobile devices.  When I have the list organized I'll link to it here.  In the meantime, do you have any suggestions?

We're getting ready to celebrate the 2010 Olympics here in Vancouver, signing students up to take the Healthy Living Pledge and preparing banners to welcome the torch relay as it passes through our community.  For those of you in the area the Vancouver Sun will be publishing a series "Bound for 2010" starting Jan. 26.

Our district's Learning Innovation Leadership Team has been moving ahead offering a variety of ProD sessions to teachers and administrators.  In addition to our regular LAN parties (see our K12 Online Presentation) we have begun using Elluminate, free to B.C. Educators.  Bryan Hughes (@bryanhughes) hosted our first two sessions giving participants an introduction to Elluminate and its features.  A recording of this session is available here.  We welcome people from outside the district so if you'd like to participate check out the LAN calendar of events and follow LAN44 on Twitter for updates and links.  For more information have a look at the LAN44 blog.
