Our committee of teachers had a million questions. Then we helped to plan an inservice for our staff in May.



After the inservice we still had a million questions. meetings.

Were we going to try being a school like Poston Butte?

And then it was June 30th.


I was given a cart of 24 netbooks to use to figure out how to try teaching in a blended learning environment.

Better learn to set up a website or three


I started to write a bit and post it on this site. I started to develop a web presence. This made it real for me.



Joining Twitter was a big step. I only did it because my Dad pressured me into it. Thanks, Dad. Really.


TweetDeck helped me to make sense of Twitter and get more out of it. 1000’s of teachers share ideas on Twitter- I’d never find this stuff in a Google search.


So I started to develop a Personal Learning Network out of necessity. I had no idea what a PLN was until I discovered someone “tweeting” about PLN’s one day.

And my own learning started to be layered- I started to feel like I knew a few things- had a few things to offer to others, and that was good, because the year at Dakota was all about experimenting and preparing the staff for changes that were on the horizon.



So my students started handing in assignments on-line as email attachments.

I struggled to figure out how to grade & assess without any paper handy.





But now most of the period is with individuals assessment.

That whole “guide on the side” thing.
