I've patrolled the Prairie Passage Flyway (I-35 Corridor) between the Minnesota Valley and Canadian River since 1994.
During 2002-03, I began wondering what was our highest altitude tributary of the Mississippi River Basin ... So, I began crafting an ALL-WinWin Pathfinder Passports Blog

Paulo Freire says in his book, "The Pedagogy of Freedom: Ethics, Democracy, and Civic Courage", that we, as educators, should critically reflect. I am going to take this opportunity to do just that within this blog post. My presentation at Encyclomedia on Friday, the 18th of September ,focused on digital storytelling and how the library can be an engine of growth in your school. To demonstrate this I created a digital story after interviewing a teacher with 62 years of classroom experience who,… Continue

I am looking forward to this upcoming week. I will be in Kansas, Oklahoma, for the COV workshop. I will be assisting Wesley as a co-facilitator. This is a great opportunity to continue to learn and network with other educators for the sole purpose of becoming better educators in the classroom. Dr. Robert Marzano uses the term, "kidspirational" in his book, "Using Technology That Works". Great word! I heard a comment from Karl Springer on KOMA radio the other morning. He said the skills that the… Continue

I just wanted to let all the participants who attended the COV workshop at Gordan Cooper Vo-Tech in Shawnee that I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and working with each of you and was truly impressed by your digital stories and the ease at which each of you demonstrated the procedures learned. I do believe passion is the driving force and key to implementing anything new. It's more than just learning how to punch the buttons! Good luck and keep in touch!

I entered our student projects in the OSU Student Film Festival which will be held May 12th at OSU, my alma mater. I'm hopeful my veterans will accompany us like they did to the State Capitol for Sandy Garrett's Technology Day in February, 2009.

I'm excited to learn of a new opportunity for educators called Story Chasers, Inc. According to Wesley Fryer's post on Twitter, this will be yet another portal from which benefits of digital learning can be introduced. As an educator who participated in one of the first COV workshops and later co-facilitated a workshop, professional development of this caliber speaks volumes in regards to the associated benefits; your students and yourself the main benefactors. Harry Wong says in his book, “The… Continue

We are thrilled to announce that students at Asher Public School have been invited to showcase their techological expertise on February 16th at the State Capitol. Specifically, the students will share their knowledge and experience interviewing WWII veterans (and Vietnam veterans) in an effort to capture and preserve oral history. They were taught the basics of digital storytelling after I attended a COV workshop in November, '07 conducted by no other than Wesley Fryer and Dr. Dana Owens… Continue

Thank you again and I look forward to continued involvement and participation. Thank you!
