The blog post, Slowly by Slowly,  is worth going to visit, because the comments on the blog post are rich and insightful, (thanks to my wonderful PLN).

Another interesting post that I wrote while living in China was “Bubble Wrap“:

“…I think schools have become a bit too bubble wrapped too. We protect the kids from impending harm, bubble wrapping their learning. However I think sometimes we harm them in our attempt to keep them safe.”

Michelle Baldwin (@michellek107)

My name is Michelle Baldwin, and I am a learner, an educator, a self-proclaimed “techie,” presenter, and an advocate for teaching and learning with students.

I returned to the classroom in 2009, after coordinating technology professional/staff development for eight years in a suburban school district in Omaha, Nebraska. From fall of 2009 through spring of 2011, I taught K-5 Vocal Music in the same school district. In August 2011, I moved to Denver, Colorado and joined the staff of Anastasis Academy.

Laurel Beaton (@laurelbeaton)

Mother, Wife, Traveler, Learner, Teacher, Educational Consultant, Food and Wine Snob and Coordinator of  Partnerships  and Innovation at the Alberta Distance Learning Centre

My goal is simple; providing all students the opportunity to learn.  I am motivated by creating connections through our passions, our purpose, and our potential.

“The best consequence for not doing the work, is doing the work”: DR. Douglas Reeves teaches about best practices in grading and assessment.

This is a conversation we had on the trip back to Vancouver from Whistler, BC. We talked about leading and learning ‘out in the open’.

Introduction to Podcasting Pair-a-Dimes:

This is my first ever podcast. Although I’ve been on a few already, I think starting with a Seedlings interview, (and most recently on Classroom 2.0 Live!), this is my first attempt at uploading one and I decided to go all out and create a wordpress blog for this and future podcasts. The way I see it, Podcasting Pair-a-Dimes is an audio extension of my blog: Pair-a-Dimes for Your Thoughts.

I was at #Unplugd12 and got to hang out with Wes Fryer, who was one of the first people I ever listened to on a podcast. Since we had our new Livescribe Pens that can serve as a recorder, I took advantage of the opportunity.

It is a fitting that I interviewed Wes since he was one of the educational podcasters that actually introduced me to listening to podcasts, (and he might even be the first podcaster I listened to, but I’m not 100% sure 5+ years later). It is really wonderful when we meet good friends, that we’ve only previously known digitally, face-to-face! Listen to Wes and I talk about this connection on his podcast (#393).

Hopefully you enjoyed my first attempt and you will subscribe to this feed! (Listen Now!)
