A Lifetime of Learning

Since I urge my students to be prepared to continue learning during their entire lifetime, my blog posts will target my own attempts at doing so.

In 1975 I had a conversion experience religiously. Recently, thanks to the exciting material I took away from Will Richardson's Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms and Justin Reich and Thomas Daccord's Best Ideas for Teaching with Technology: A Practical Guide for Teachers, by Teachers, I experienced a second rebirth--in my teaching style. At about the same time, insights from Thomas Friedman's The World is Flat convinced me that the Web is here to stay and that I, along with my students, must "learn to navigate that virtual world."
