I was going to post this yesterday, but the internet went crazy after President Obama got on Reddit for an AMA and I decided to wait.
I have another post, the last in this series, over at the ITI Books Blog. I am talking about how to take the idea of mob rule into a classroom where little or no technology is available.
My Twitter feed was awash the past few days with school supply shopping, teachers gearing up, librarians preparing, and parents rejoicing. It is a time of educational renewal, when all things are still possible and we still have hope that this year will be The Year of Something Wonderful.
Unfortunately, many of our students will come the first day, admittedly tired, but hopeful to a classroom that neither reflects learning or the real world outside of the classroom.
Stop by and tell us your stories from the trenches.
–Jane, good luck to all teachers and students this year!
