Oh come on!

If you have ever been on Facebook and clicked on some of the links you may be surprised that they chose my video to block! Actually the message is that I do not have to rights to load it. So you are saying when someone posts a video that is taken with a video camera facing a TV is ligit? Oh come on!

Social Networking

I have blogged in the past about social networking and its vast possibilities. Today I am sitting back and thinking how did I get here! I am going beyond basic networking and implementing ideas from my Professional Learning Network (PLN). Today I am attempting to make a home made Interactive Whiteboard. All I need is a software download, a Wiimote and an infrared pen!
I sit here shaking my head at the prospect of moving from simple chit-chat with other teachers to making a home-made version of a board which costs in the 4 figure range...Holy cow!
I cannot thank my PLN enough for broadening my horizons and challenging me to step further into how technology can be ever changing and impact all learners!
