As you can imagine by the long span between posts, things have been hectic at school lately. However, the rough first take of my first webcast, "How I use MindManager In My Classroom" is done and available for downloading (click here shockwave format, @27mb). Please let me know what you think! As "take one," it shows the basics of what I'm trying to get across to you -- it will be edited (and improved) later this weekend, I just had to get this out there.

After I finish with the MindManager production, I'll be showing you how I use OneNote, Windows Journal, STELLA (of course) and other programs (like Camtasia) with my tablet in my classroom and at work. I will even be videotaping so you can see it in actual use ("You Are There!").

Again, please comment!

The enemy of an updated blog is a sunny weekend after 35 days (10") of rain. For those who were at NCCE, the powerpoint and other files are now in the links section.

I plan to add more files, links and demos of tablet programs as the weeks progress, so don't go away! (I'll get a lot done if we get snow this week).

Thanks for being a good audience.

Friday, I get to talk about how I use my Tablet PC to teach! I'm already sleepless...

Note that the links on this page are going to be constantly updated (and nested soon) as I update the site this weekend. I've included a few key links for now to hold you over (yes the powerpoint will show up Saturday)

The idea for this particular blog comes from my desire to no longer lurk (and occasionally contribute) on all the other tablet pc blogs out there. As a teacher, I find that there are many great tablet pc blogs out there (see the links), but I want to contribute my own voice now (and hear from others).

It's all about ideas for the classroom in a less than perfect world (1-1 tablets!). I hope to hear from many people and that you will find this blog useful.


PS: If any of you out there are elementary teachers and use a tablet in your classroom, drop me a line! I know that I'd use one if I taught say, first grade, but as a high school teacher, there's no way I can have any more than a remote idea of what you go through! I marvel at the creativity of K-8 (and pre-K)!
