I teach a group of gifted students in the Coquitlam School District, in suburban Vancouver, British Columbia. You can check out the work they do on their site.
I am a runner, music maker, reader, writer, radio head and a graduate of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (’04).
Some of the things I’ve written here are:
- Essay as Blogpost: Cellphones in the Classroom: A post that
holdsonce held the record for most comments on my blog, I make my case for a more progressive stance on today’s mobile devices.
- Why Learning Outside Matters: A continuation of the Unplug’d topic inspired by a September spent learning in the outdoors.
- Looking back on the Bears Thirty Person Rock Band Project: Reflections on a collaborative public learning project in the music classroom.
- Carrying Stones: Reflections on Canada, Unplug’d, and playing the Voyageur guitar. [Now the most commented post on this blog.]
- Sharing Classroom Practice: A visioning statement for a collaborative inquiry into ‘open’ behaviour at Gleneagle Secondary.
- Web Radio in the K12 Classroom: Archives of #RadioforLearning experiments in distributed web radio.
- Opening K12 Education: A collection of links and my rationale in pursuing learning in the open of the web.
- Citizenship Learning and the Project of Enlightenment: Thoughts on the mandate of citizenship education in the twenty-first century by looking to the philosophical values of the Enlightenment period.
- Curriculum as Black Box: Schooling as a metaphor.
- The Digital Age and Curriculum in British Columbia: A final paper for a class in curriculum for my master’s.
- Why Picket: A call to arms written ‘on the line’ during the longest teachers’ strike in Canadian public school history.
