At the end of this month, I will be leaving the teaching position that I have held for the last 18 years. I am fortunately leaving on excellent terms with my employer, and feel a significant amount of sadness to be leaving what has truly been a "dream job" for almost two decades. However, for personal, family and health reasons, I need to leave my current school to move to the west coast; there, I will hopefully be pursuing other projects and adventures that will (I hope) have some connections to the three things that have driven this blog: education, technology, and new media. Thank you to all of you who have supported, read, visited, and commented on my blog. It has been a great forum to allow me to "think out loud" about what is happening in education/ed tech, and I am grateful that anyone has ever bothered to read and contribute to these thoughts. Since social sites are changing, and managing so many different sites has become overwhelming, I'll be retiring this blog. If you'd like to continue the conversation, feel free to add me to one of your circles on Google Plus. Let's keep moving forward. :-) Laura

Did you miss the TEDxNYED Conference today? Yeah, me too. Fortunately, though, I was able to listen in through the magic of the Internet. Here's an archive of sorts on the new Livestream. Enjoy!

Canvas is a clean looking LMS: wish I had known about this a year or two ago. Anyone using it? Looks like the kind of thing I've wanted for years, but didn't have the engineering skills to build. You can check out some videos here.
