Blog Anniversary & Passion Quilt Meme

I can talk to anyone!

To celebrate my 3rd blog anniversary, I thought I’d finally respond to Gail Desler’s tag for a passion quilt meme. I’ve been thinking about it for a while, so this is the result of simmering.

My passion, as you well know, is bringing engaging experiences to students, generally via the technology of videoconferencing. I want students to know and believe that they can talk to and learn from anyone! I guess the quilt idea got in my head too so I wanted more of a collage. The collage includes videoconferences with a blind author, children’s author, World War II veterans, Iditarod racer, students in Benton Harbor, MI, Wales, and Pakistan, a rattlesnake and a caterpillar. The girl in the center is one of my favorite student pictures from Microsoft Clip Art.

Ok, so here’s the rest of the meme information:

Rules:

  • Think about what you are passionate about teaching your students.
  • Post a picture from a source like FlickrCC or Flickr Creative Commons or make/take your own that captures what YOU are most passionate about for kids to learn about…and give your picture a short title.
  • Title your blog post “Meme: Passion Quilt” and link back to this blog entry.
  • Include links to 5 folks in your professional learning network or whom you follow on Twitter/Pownce

And I’m tagging Roxanne, Kevin, Rebecca, Andrea, and Ashton.

Finally, in honor of my blog anniversary, thank you to each of you, my readers, who share, comment, pass the word, send me resources, and in general nudge me to keep learning! If you want to take a stroll down memory lane, wander through some Selected Posts.

    Congratulations on your blog’s 3rd year anniversary. It has been a tremendous resource and source of inspiration for all of us videoconferencing devotees. Here’s to another 30 at least. Who knows what the technology will be up to then? A vc with Mars perhaps? I will try my hands at a quilt in honor of my blog’s two years and counting
