Geography, Portfolios, and Programming – The Week in Review

Good evening from Maine where I’m home after spending a few days in Key West, Florida where I had the privilege to work with some energetic teachers at Sigsbee Charter School. The trip laid the groundwork for some exciting work we’re going to do in the fall.

As much as I enjoy traveling and working with teachers in schools all over the country, it’s always great to come home to my toddler running up to hug me.

My posting schedule got a little off this week. I’ll be back to four posts a day starting on Monday. In the meantime, take a look at this week’s most popular posts.

I’ve given keynotes at conferences from Australia to Alaska for groups of all sizes from 50 to 2,000+. My keynotes focus on providing teachers and school administrators with practical ways to use technology to create better learning experiences for all students.
