  • Blog Post: Interesting Links 23 January 2012

    Last week really reminded me of how much I miss being in the classroom. Two all-day workshops with a mix of students and adults. Lots of good learning going on. It was wonderful to see people “getting it” and learning some new things. I need to get in front of more students more often. A lot of links...
  • Blog Post: Interesting Links 15 November 2010

    I got a new Xbox 360 with a Kinect device last week. I spent much of a day “testing” it out and some evenings playing it with my wife. Kinect Adventures can be a real workout. So can Dance Central. I wonder how long before we see Kinect devices in schools and senior centers and after school programs...
  • Blog Post: Interesting Links 8 November 2010

    Well we are really and truly into November now. Over the weekend we went back to Eastern Standard time in New Hampshire. The best thing about that is that for a little while it is easier for me to get up earlier. Does the same effect work with students? Not sure. I have a bunch of links for teachers...

    Posting early this week as I hope to have more timely stuff to write about as the week goes on. I’m on my way to Denver for ISTE this morning.

  • Blog Post: Web 2.0 and Other Educational Resources from Microsoft

    OK, this may not be the definitive index to Microsoft resources for teachers but it’s close. Something for everyone from elementary school English teachers to high school science teachers (check out the world wide telescope) to high school computer science teachers. Lots to choose from. Web 2.0 and Other...
  • Blog Post: Programming in Applications

    First a true confession – regular expressions are a pain for me. Oh don’t get me wrong, I think they are wonderful things in their place. I took a couple of compiler related courses and I studied them seriously. But somehow I still struggle with them. I am apparently not alone in this. I heard a talk...

    OK here is another link for you math teachers out there. Murray Sargent has a blog called Math in Office that as you might expect focuses on mathematics related features and tools with Microsoft Office. Sample interesting looking posts include: Hidden Math Features in Word 2007 Math Context...
  • Blog Post: May Posts in Review

    May was an interesting month for me in several ways. One area that I struggled with though was blogging. Perhaps it is because the school year is winding down but I could not seem to stay on a roll. Still there were a couple of posts that received a lot of traffic. XNA was big because of the Zune announcement...

    Community Clips is a new (well new to me) site supported by Microsoft Office Labs that lets users create, upload, and view videos of how to do things using Microsoft Office. There is even a tool one can download and install to make creating screen capture videos easily. There are all sorts of videos...
  • Blog Post: Search Commands For Office

    The Internet and blogging are wonderful things. Yesterday I blogged about a set of tools for helping people find the Office 2007 location for commands based on where they were in Office 2003. And then later in the day several people who read that post sent me links to the Search Commands add-on from...
  • Blog Post: Where On the Ribbon Is That Office Feature?

    I’ve talked to a number of teachers recently who teach the Office Suite as part of a computer applications courses lately. A good number of them are preparing to update their courses to Office 2007 for next school year. That means some preparation time over the summer. The biggest change that Office...
