Lesson Designing vs. Lesson Planning-Hyperdocs is the Answer!

The hot topic of the summer is Hyperdocs. The book published by EdTechTeam and written by Lisa Highfill, Sarah Landis, and Kelly Hilton is a hit as is their website Hyperdocs.co. I must give a shout out to Holly Clark who is an Educational Strategist for EdTechTeam and in charge of publishing. She’s promoting the hell out of the book for good reason-we need to change the way we approach teaching. I’m a big fan of Hyperdocs. I have used PlanbookEdu for years and love it. But I was looking for a simplified way to create my lessons in an all in one document, something…I don’t know. I was...

Be Uncomfortable

March completely flew by and left me in the dust. I attended CUE 2016 and presented at the EdTech Google Summit in Pomona and NCEA 2016.

This cannot happen. Why? Because technology...

And I get to present on my two favorite topics – iPads and Google! They really do work together. I use Google Apps daily in my classroom and all my students have iPads. Part of working for a school that has been at the forefront of 1:1 iPad integration, means that I get to try everything the iPad has to offer. And being a Google trainer, I spend a lot of time figuring out how it works with Google. Not as...

Focus on One Thing

First, I need to thank my lovely and smart daughter for creating my new website. It’s great to have your own webmaster who loves you and owes your for paying her outrageous car insurance while she is in college. Among other things! Second, since becoming a Google for Education Certified Trainer I have been overwhelmed by a number of things. The first being how little I don’t know about Google. Really, I read the posts in the trainer forum and I feel completely dumb. Then going to a seminar with Alice Keeler-now I have really been humbled. I realize that I need to take the advice...
