My Obligatory Post On My Most Clicked Posts From 2014

I believe that it is written somewhere in the "Blogger Rulebook" that if you are a blogger you are obligated to highlight your most viewed posts from the year.  It is an interesting reflective exercise to see what caught the attention of others.  While I blog about things that strike me as interesting, it is reassuring to see that others sometimes agree.

Best to all for a great 2015! Blog on!

#The Positive Power of Edcamp Hits the US Department of Education -June 7, 2014

#4 A Rant on Reading Online vs. Reading on Paper  - April 21, 2014
A pet peeve of mine is the fact that so many people want to cite statistics that show people are less effective when they read online. The reality for me is that we are still very early on in this transition and we should be encouraging people to try different workflows and seeing what works best for them.

A quick overview of the different digital tools I use to try to keep up with all of the happenings in our school district.

 #6 It's Time to end the Device Debate  - August 11, 2014
Let's face it, there is no perfect device. The best device is the one that works best for the individual. If something works well for you, then you should use it. Of course, we always have to be on the lookout for tweaks to our workflow that can make us more productive.
