    • 1. Our journey together… To Infinity and Beyond by Théo La Photo on flickr
    • 2. Now I will share… Here are 3 things my blog has taught me, and Some questions to inspire you to blog or to meaningfully question your practice.
    • 3. Pick One
    • 4. Lesson 1
    • 5. “ I come from the Batman era, adding items to my utility belt, while students today are the Borg from Star Trek, assimilating technology into their lives.” http://fon.gs/ digitalexposure /   http://fon.gs/ digitaldivide /  http://fon.gs/ digitalcompetence / 
    • 6. Lesson 1: “I’m Batman, not Borg.” Questions to ponder… How are students today different? (or the same?) Why does this matter? Are you Batman? Borg? Digital immigrant or native? Create your own learning metaphor.
    • 7. Lesson 2
    • 8. I am a Squares in there by mag3737 / Tom Magliery on flickr
    • 9. http://fon.gs/ edupunk / http://fon.gs/ squarepeg /   “ It is about creating an environment where every child can thrive.” For that to happen we need differentiated instruction, we need a flexible curriculum, and we need teachers that are the same life-long learners we hope our students become.
    • 10. Lesson 2: “I’m a square peg in a round hole.” Questions to ponder… How don’t you ‘fit in’ and how does this challenge you? How have you differentiated learning for a square peg? What can you do to help a square peg in your class/school? What needs to change?
    • 11. Lesson 2: “I’m a square peg in a round hole.” Questions to ponder… How don’t you ‘fit in’ and how does this challenge you? How have you differentiated learning for a square peg? What can you do to help a square peg in your class/school? What needs to change? How do we make this happen?
    • 12. Lesson 3
    • 13. Flat topped pyramid Skylight Pyramid - Optical Illusion by Keith Weston on flickr or skylight?
    • 14. Things that make you go hmmmmmmmm…. “ I think that I am guilty of seeing the value of using technology in guiding learning, but not effectively guiding learning in my technology use.” Some assembly required: http://fon.gs/ assembly /  
    • 15. Things that make you go hmmmmmmmm…. What can we do to help students leave our schools feeling like they are empowered learners? Things that make you go hmmmmmmmm…. http://fon.gs/ hmmm /  
    • 16. Things that make you go hmmmmmmmm…. As I was talking my student interrupted and said, “ I just had a flash of insight, I’m a mop not a sponge!” “ I’m a mop not a sponge”: Metaphors all the way down : http://fon.gs/ mop /  
    • 17. Lesson 3: Reflection, metacognition, and metaphors are powerful ways to learn. When do you make the time to meaningfully reflect? When do you/your staff/your class think about thinking? When do you/your staff/your class talk about learning? How do you use metaphors to teach and learn?
    • 18. Your turn…
    • 19. Pick One and Blog about it. Comment about it. Discuss it. Think deeply about it… then share it! Help me! My hand is stuck. by oberazzi (Tim O'Brien) on flickr
    • 20. But wait… before you go… Think about this: http://startyourownblog.wikispaces.com/ (A tool to help you get started)
