Top 10 Security Tips for Teachers and Administrators

"Most networks," I remember reading (no source, sorry), "are built like a medieval castle. Once you get past the moat, the castle wall with archers and infantry armed with boiling pitch, you have relatively free access to the castle grounds." Of course, the article was more succinct.

Break New Ground

Source: Are you changing to match new circumstances, or remaining the same in alignment to the past? Or, put another way, How can we adjust to change while remaining the same? I'm not sure, but it's something that...Show More Summary

Looking Back: The Value of the Archive

In the age of instant and public publishing, what’s trending now seems to be what we focus on most. What someone wrote last month, last year or even 20 years ago seems less relevant that what comes across our various feeds today. One of the great promises of digital is it’s ability to archive and […]

My Twitter Evolution – Episode 1

I joined Twitter in November of 2007 which is roughly seven and half years ago. That’s a fairly long time and both my use and my thoughts about Twitter changed quite a bit over that time.

I was the closing keynote and I talked, as I have before, about what… Read More

Catfish Literacy?

To play off a bit of David’s post on social justice MOOCs, there seems to be a base need for tools for helping identify evil people on the web. That’s not in a dox type of way but more like a way to guide people in determining if accounts have ill intentions.1 That’s probably a… Read More

Learning with #Rhizo15

Day 2: The Feeling of Greatness Has Returned

Hey guys (and gals!) As the day began, we did A LOT of exciting things. But…before we begin, lets talk about the bad things that happened first: 1. We lost two of our matches today due to physical problems/changes on the robot and just because we were against a better alliance team. That’s okay though, [...]

The Teachers We Need

When I look back at my teacher education, I would say that 80% of what I was taught was essentially how to be a good instructor. As Phil Schlecty says, we used to see teacher and instructor as synonymous.  Being a good instructor today is much less important than it was in 1988. It’s still […]

Photography – Week 68

I like to take photographs of photographers taking photographers. I ran into this one one block over from 821 Cafe. I am a fan of that blue wall. Danielle Dick from Spit for Science working with ALT Lab’s video team. Students set up hammocks around VCU. I wonder if that happens in other places. Not… Read More
