Thanks for the link. I had not seen your site, but I have it bookmarked now for reference.
I name checked you here about a Screen Ed article you wrote...if you have the PDF and could share it that would be cool.
Now that you have done a webinar for NCTE, what are your feelings about districts using them for professional development? You said that it is not best technology for hands on engagements. Is there one? Can we incorporate some interactive piece on interactive boards to make it more engaging? If we do that, are we excluding a large population of teachers that might not have access to that technology? Since the state has restricted all non-essential travel, I worry that teachers are not going to here new voices. I have not had good reception at the district level using webinars. It can be awkward and if teachers are not motivated enough to be engaged, it is really easy to just check out and start a conversation with the person beside you. I really wanted this to be something that we could use. What could make them better? I go off the NCTE board in November and would like to give them some valuable feedback that might make this form of PD more valuable and marketable in the future. Budgets are so tight; I can't even see the district allowing any consultants to come in. BTW- Are you going to WLU in July? I am presenting with Franki Sibberson on 21st century literacies. I would really like to use some of your references and your website in my list of resources. I appreciate how generous you are in sharing great information on your blog and website.
We met at the Charleston Literacy Conference in December. I wanted to say hi and thank you for all the great stuff you have on your website.
Hey I was looking for an "Accurate" number of advertisements people are exposed to daily and had found that your resource was copied all over the place - problem is a lot of the links are gone - anyway they finally get to you in this interesting thread - http://www.hhcc.com/?p=468
