Where will it all end?

Is this where I'm heading?

Oh my! I am sitting here in my usual spot on the couch, with my feet up, listening to podcasts, and reading my blogs. Oh, it's 6:00 am, Saturday and I'm enjoying the quiet time.

The difference now is that I have 2 laptops I'm using at the same time. Am I going nuts? My regular laptop is tied up uploading my student podcasts to our server. I am also doing grades.

My other laptop is a brand new Eee PC. Wow what a great little device! We will definitely get some of these for our elementary students next year. It would also be great for several teachers as well.

So while my full size laptop chugs away, I have found more things to try. You just never know what treasures await you when you enter the network! Here are a few.

http://openpd.wikispaces.com I am hoping to share and learn from this group.

We held a class for teachers using our new professional development tool. Moodle. I think this is going to be an exciting tool for our teachers. What a way to teach Web 2.0 concepts.
