[later… title was all we had] Looks like I was interrupted in the drafting of this one] The “?” must have been an indication of unspringness at the time of entry.

-Making clear what the stakes are for each of these diverse individuals in any class. -Each must get growth that suits their level of development -Implication of above…. varied materials and lessons and enormous scope of teacher tracking and support. Necessarily …. a greater involvement of parents , a lesser domination […]
In short: Compassion , Understanding and Confidence to start with. Deep understanding of content AS IT WOULD BE EXPERIENCED BY STUDENTS BEING EXPOSED TO IT FOR THE FIRST (OR 2ND, 3RD … TIME) ORGANIZATIONAL SYSTEM TO ALLOW DIFFERENT LEARNINGS AND ACTIVITIES OCCURRING SIMULTANEOUSLY. SUBJECT MATTER MATERIALS FOR A LARGE RANGE OF SKILL LEVELS AND INTERESTS […]
Note in response to of today’s daily prompts: “Bone of Contention”. Bonnie (my wife) and I were just talking about the phrase “bone to pick” as in “I have a bone to pick with you!!”. Our analysis … Bonnie’s image …. was two , or more, sharing a portion of meat — held together by/hanging […]
If you’ve found your way to teaching. Welcome!! Lot’s of work in front of you… to provide for yourself (pay’s bad) and to provide a future for your clients. The deep essence of good-to-excellent teaching (i.e. empowering excellent participation in the world society and the global ecology) is not a significant or meaningful presence. Teaching […]
I’ve been out of touch, Mooc-wise, for several months. During my participation in ChangeMooc I expanded my understanding and use of mooc and twitter use. And… gained access bright educational bloggers and their thoughts and methods. One of my big [time consuming] efforts involved summarizing each mooc session with notes and attachments all within a […]
Working on expanding my horizons while still holding onto functionality. [Have too many assignments do none … to many possessions enjoy none, etc] Part of this avoidance of /concern with dysfunctionality is my acquisition of the asus transformer /computer. — my thought and communication processes have been obstructed by the newness/new learning. This and the […]
My address for this site allows me to write email which translates into weblog entry. Hard to picture anything much easier than to draft an emailabout which then becomes a published blog entry. Reminder…. it’s coded in …. just pick address "Connectivity Outline" as above and THAT will translate into the appropriate address for insertion […]
Now have web based weather installation. Plus a few bells and whistles. Yes–I can check on my ipod or my portable or….. Still nice to be able to go to a kitchen shelf and get the low down. You might call me old fashioned because of above… for me seeing heroic, elegant, aging beautifully Sidney […]
Have added twitter, tweet deck and have just finished session with Erik Duval on twitter in his educational setting (higher ed, Europe). Twitter is now a Presence in the online culture … and he, Erik, has, attempted to move students to the point of fluid use of twitter in order to help them understand its […]
Still learning to integrate twitter process with blogging process. (And blogging process with writing of larger documents). Tried to twitter along as I listened to Cormier, Downes, Siemens discussing rhizomatic learning/instructing/teaching.
I’ve been peripherally bothered enough by my loss of the actual opml connection … to not write in the blog at all. Silly. The body of material still worthwhile and lots of workarounds.
It’s five days later. Still working on the idea of drafting blog entries right on google. Really nice.

Hello. Here’s a simple entry straight from my email account at gmail.
The goodness of a government is not to be found in its self-protecting pronouncements. Neither is that goodness found in the mouths and writings of those who show themselves to be currying direct favor or who assume, for whatever reason, that any actions of the government are intended by its members or representatives to be […]
Interviewer(Int): What is it you think your approach to schooling should accomplish? Spike (SPH): My approach should result in classrooms that work better with individuals because the classroom is designed for maximal useful impact for each individual. Int: How’s that possible in a one subject class like history? SPH: not quite as much unless the […]

Wont enter results at this point Have to note/remark on the tremendous range of topics and the time span during which he produced. He and Dewey and James and Rorty — all pragmatists He with the start of professorial/paternal nurturance and Harvard from the beginning He with the sureness and brilliance […]
Ultimately we all make decisions “in the moment”. But if our satisfaction derived from decisions and the “weight versus uplift” of our perception of the consequences can be moved in the direction of elevation rather than depression and if that tendency is aided by thinking about big ideas like those Washburn presents in his book, […]
A life can be viewed as an unfolding. In a public and scholarly life there are obvious landmarks — documented events and publications. Late last year I decided to chart out JD’s works and major life events. Also, where data was available, close associates and collaborators. I’ve begun to put this material into a timeline […]
John Dewey and Marc Edmond Jones, would have different approaches to the explanation of either the development, or the effective support of the development, of character. Their differences, the differences between modern, reasoned- and- “empirical” philosophy and an ancient yet evolving use of the stars and planets to explain person to person and within […]

Jane Addams, Dewey’s wife, and quite a few others –see prior entry– had quite a bit to do with the deepening with the early Dewey. He’s a collaborator, perhaps the strongest one , perhaps not, who records what a community of thinkers and valuers have jointly constructed together. Read about Addams in the Stanford Encylopedia […]
Initial notes from http://www.uvm.edu/~dewey/articles/proged.html the term “progressive education” has been used to describe ideas and practices that aim to make schools more effective agencies of a democratic society. Although there are numerous differences of style and emphasis among progressive educators, they share the conviction that democracy means active participation by all citizens in social, […]
