I have spent most of this Sunday afternoon catching up on the huge number of entries in my Google Reader. In doing so, I ran across this. It’s excellent post by Silvia Tilisano in her Langwitches blog about Wallwisher, a website that essentially allows users to create an interactive bulletin board using sticky notes with text, photos, or video.
So I started thinking. What would I want to have a virtual conversation about? I settled on a topic that I have giving a lot of thought lately…The Schools We Need. So I went to the Wallwisher website, registered, and started a wall. Super easy. Even grabbing the video that started me down this road was simple as copying and pasting the url into my sticky note.
And now I want to invite you into the conversation. Go to my wall and add your own thoughts.

It seems that all of the world has been talking about Twitter lately. From Ashton Kutcher to Oprah Winfrey, celebrities galore have embraced the microblogging site as a way to connect with fans. Of course, this level of popular appeal will probably serve to scare away teachers and other learning professionals. I think that this is unfortunate because I believe that Twitter provides some of the best professional development available. And it’s customizable…and available 24 hours a day…and free.
Pictured below are the more than 200 people that make currently up my learning team. They teach me something new each and every day.
