Are You Reading?

·

I don't have time for this. The pile of papers to mark is too big but I just read Clarence's post about Gary Stager and I can't help asking: "Gary. Are you reading edublogs or just talking about them? Have you seen any of this:"

Pre=Cal 40S (Winter 2005)
Pre-Cal 20S (Fall '05)
Pre-Cal 30S (Fall '05)
Applied Math 40S (Winter '06)
Pre-Cal 40S (Winter '06)
Calculus 45S (Winter '06)
AP Calculus AB ('05-'06)
Pre-Cal 30S (Fall '06)
Pre-Cal 40S (Fall '06)
Applied Math 40S (Winter '07)
Pre-Cal 40S (Winter '07)
AP Calculus AB ('06-'07)
AP Calculus AB ('07-'08)
Pre-Cal 40S (Fall '07)
Consumer Math 20S (Fall '07)

Dig in to each of those. Find the links to wikis, podcasts, buckets of links in del.icio.us, flickr, and don't forget to dig in to the outstanding work on display in The Scribe Post Hall Of Fame with contributions from more teachers than just I. Follow the links in blogrolls, get connected via twitter and find out of the daily innovations being made by teachers everywhere. I can't possibly list them all and, if you've looked, you can't possibly have missed them all. And don't overlook some of the excellent (and not so excellent) work done by students and published online as they work on Developing their Expert Voices. Their work is scattered far and wide across the net and aggregated here:

Developing Expert Voices (2007)
Developing Expert Voices (2008) (This site will continue to aggregate content through June 2008.)

Gary, what are you reading?

Dear Darren:

I heard good things about your work all weekend. Congratulations on the work you do.

However, it seems unfair to be castigated for something another blogger wrongly reports that I said. The blog you cite is wrong and does not accurately represent my views.

I'm concerned that people I do not know are getting worked up about something I did not say.

Best Wishes,

Gary S. Stager, Ph.D.

Hi Gary,

First, if the tone of my post sounds like "castigation" let me apologize; that was not my intent.

I was taken aback by the comments you made at EduCon 2.0. It seems to me highly unlikely that Clarence would misrepresent something he heard said. I've known him professionally and personally for years now and I have never known him to do such a thing.

The thing that I was "worked up" about was the suggestion that teachers are talking about powerful pedagogical applications of web 2.0 technologies but not following it up with actions. Clearly, that's not the case. And that is the only point I wanted to make in my post. I can see how this might come across as a personal attack. I apologize for that too.

I look forward to the day we get a chance to meet face to face and discuss teaching and learning in the modern age over a cup of coffee.

Until then Gary,
Cheers.
