Caring, Care-Taking, & Taking Care of Business...

What you CARE about is what gets done over time.  The things that you prioritize are the things that get accomplished while other projects and goals fall by the wayside.  We all have dreams and desires that bubble up to the surface of the present moment and seem real and worthy, but many of these objects fall into memory and oblivion without ever having been realized.

What is REALIZED is what we attended to over time.  There is absolutely…

Leadership in our Professional Learning Network...

When "Leading By Example" is the motto and a focus of your learning organization, you can expect a lot of reflection upon the concepts and dynamics of group leadership. As I have had the privilege of being the primary designer as well as the first network coordinator for the ANUAH Project, I have spent many hours thinking about this and dealing with the realities of trying to develop such a geographically large and intellectually complex network of related projects. I'd like to… Continue

Complexity & Organization in a 21st Century Professional Development Network...

Complexity is shown in the intricacy and cohesion of interrelated ideas or processes within a system. Some professional development projects operate from very simple organizational models which are quite efficient for executing simple goal sets. Other P-D projects, especially those looking for a vibrant, sustaining, community of practice can be quite complex in design. As reflectivity and the products of reflectivity build up within a teaching & learning… Continue

Dynamic vs. Static Models for TAH Professional Development

Here's an essay I wrote that was published in the National History Education Clearinghouse encompassing some of my thoughts as I was developing our project,...

Let me know your thoughts on it!

" For educators privileged to help implement a TAH project, perhaps the most important question that we can continue to ask ourselves and each other is: how can we make our projects even… Continue

dear jhon i believe that Pakistan's and Alaskan educators work together on cultural grounds. It would be good experience to share eastern and northern cultural experiences

John, thank you for the welcome. Although I've been tech-savvy for many years, social networking is always struck me as a colossal waste of time. In this forum, I can see a practical use, but I am behind the learning curve. Please bear with me. Regards, Carl

I appreciate that we have the freedom to kind uf just say what is on our mind; I do not always know what my complete thought is.....just what I think in general......but by feeling free just to jump into the discussion, I can kind of refine my thinking about a historical question in real time. I think the beauty of this format is that its a bit free-flowing, with the chat option, the audion option, etc. It allows students to follow along and join the discussion, but also to add peripheral thoughts as well. I hope it does not distract the instructor (s) too much when students add comments that are not exactly in teh thread of the lecture. I wanted to comment on how I appreciated this freedom to share my thoughts in this manner. I look forward to be being part of this growing community (network) of historical minded folks.
semper historia
