OK...so I've decided not to throw the "baby out with the bath water." After further reflection, and a few nice reassuring e-mails, I have been convinced that there must be a reason why this blog exists. So... I will continue to fill this space. Public schools are still the sausage factories that we know an love, so there is much material to choose from. (By sausage factories I mean: We love the product but you definitely don't want to know the details of how the product is made!)
I think I am finally on my feet as a classroom science teacher again (see the blog)and am ready to start scanning the ed tech literature for things to highlight and comment about. I am even contemplating putting together a little "dog and pony show" about my use of my science classroom blog in an actual inner city middle school.
Send me a few ideas and I'll be sure to put them up in this amazingly desolate corner of the web!
Peace and Happy 2008!
