2008 direction

As a New Year's resolution for professional development I am going to try to keep up a little better with my blog. There are many fantastic new "things" out there as well as great "old" things to brush up on.

Videos to watch such as this:

curiosity Video:a short film by film-maker Nic Askew on the nature of curiosity. Starring the ever-curious Seth Godin.

I can't wait to see where the gaming in education programs will lead. There are already libraries having game night. {I have a teacher with a PS2 hidden in his room...}

I worked today on my presentation for SLMS 2008 entitled Books for Boys. I am creating a wiki to go with it. It is easier than printing off all the handouts though I will print out the booklist that I am creating. There are a lot of good booklists that I am just linking in. This will be my third wiki. I created one for last year's presentation too. I love pbwiki.
