This is my blog of reflections, musings and ideas. Originally started as a requirement of the Graduate course "Seminar in Educational Technology" at the University of Manitoba. Now that I have finished my Ph.D., I will use the blog explore ideas as I proceed through my work in education & educational technology.

New eBook on Digital Literacy/Citizenship and Sustainability - Call for Proposals!
My friend and colleague, Dr. Rennie Redekopp, have decided to try to co-edit and publish a third eBook in our series looking at educational technology in Manitoba schools. Volumes 1 and 2 of our eBook series can be downloaded FREE here!
This one will tackle the broad topics of Digital Literacy, Citizenship, and sustainability. As with our last book, the Manitoba Association for Computing Educators (ManACE) is supporting this endeavour.
Here is the call from the ManACE newsletter:
Are you a Manitoba teacher who addresses digital issues, sustainability, and/or global citizenship in your classroom/school?
Want to share the good things you are doing and be an inspiration to others?
If so, consider sharing your work by contributing a chapter to an ebook of exemplary ideas and thinking from Manitoba schools. This purpose of this ebook is to share ideas of how concepts of digital/media literacy and/or digital citizenship are addressed in Manitoba schools and classrooms. For example, do you have any favorite lessons to address these topics? Do you use social media in a way to address issues of digital literacy, citizenship, sustainability, or social justice? When you have students do research online do you have mini lessons on evaluating sources? Do you infuse these concepts into your curriculum? How? Do you have any particularly good resources you use and are willing to share? Maybe you have been doing some deep thinking about these topics and have thoughts to share?
Due date for the proposal only: asap - submissions accepted until we receive a sufficient number to move ahead
Please send a short description of your idea for submission.
Include your name, school, and grade level(s). Note: collaborative pieces are also accepted!
If you are a Manitoba educator and you tackle any of these topics in your classroom/school/division - then consider contributing a piece - they do not have to be long! Let's share all the great things going on in Manitoba schools and help inspire others!
