Man you leave for a few years and all kinds of stuff will change

Looks like my old theme was replaced sometime during my Rip Van Winkle blog sleep. Went from Misty Look to Misty Lake will probably have to change again.

Need to Change

We need not to be let alone. We need to be really bothered once in a while. How long is it since you were really bothered? About something important, about something real?

Testing a new blog editing tool

Wow I have not looked at any client side (non web) blog editors in a really long time. I just picked up BlogDesk (using it on this post). It had one of the smoothest setups that I have ever used for a blog editor. Very nice if you have not looked at it go check it out.

Learning with a great teacher

This is a very intriguing article about a dynamic 5th Grade teacher who went against the grain with some great results.

Suben said: “My primary goal as a teacher is to help my students understand the reasoning behind math rules and procedures. I have several core beliefs about this: (1) Understanding is constructed by the learner, not passively received from the teacher. (2) Understanding is built by making connections between as many strands of knowledge as possible. (3) Understanding is galvanized through communication. (4) Understanding is only valuable when you reflect on it and question it.”

Happy New Year

Well I have really been slacking on writing in this weblog and I have no excuses. I have a new goal on my Joe’s Goals list to get back to writing here so I am ready to start. I hope everyone has started off the new year in a great way and here is to hoping that 2007 will be better than 2006 in every way!
