One of the benefits of being a blogger and part of that community is having access to the blogs of other educators who are interested in the same things you are. Although I didn’t attend the Project SHARE meeting at the Education Service Center, Region 20 in San Antonio, Tx yesterday, I was able to get information about Project SHARE from Joel Adkins, CTO for Kerrville ISD from his blog–The TWAIN Blog.
This blognotes entry captures some of the points I thought were relevant in Joel’s blog entry and I’m grateful to him for sharing it! If you have attended any Project SHARE meetings–no matter what region you are in–I hope you’ll share the link to your notes in the comments.
Thanks to Paul Cornies (Quoteflections) for sharing his insights at this blog entry.
Over the last year (maybe longer), I’ve been citing tons of content in “DiigoNotes,” which is really a way for me to keep track of what I’m reading online. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve re-read my DiigoNotes–called that because I use the Diigo highlighting tool–to find relevant ideas and information to some timely topic.
Now, while I often find that in Blog entries I read, I seldom have time to weave them into conversations. Usually when I’m skimming Google Reader, I’ll see patterns in the blog entries that appear and can easily juxtapose those…but “easily” takes time. Sometimes, I just want to grab the ideas and run, then reflect later. Since my blog serves as a scrapbook of content, as well as a place to share what I’m learning, I’m launching a new approach which is entitled “BlogNotes.”
Yes, this means I’ll be using Diigo to grab great quotes from blogs I’m reading WITHOUT much reflection on my part.
We’ll see how it works out, huh?
