Well, tomorrow is the last day of school for teachers at GHS. Grades are finished (or at least I sure hope they are — but I’m afraid to jinx myself!) so I’ve turned to my summer professional development. Here is what I will be up to this summer:
Today I am attending a conference on learning management systems. In front if me , I am switching between my iPad, cell phone, and the conference pamphlet seamlessly. This is what my students would be capable of doing if we would simply allow them to bring In their technology and help them learn not to be distracted by what they are doing. Wouldn’t that be nice?

Kari teaches English I to 9th graders (!) and other electives in rural Iowa. Her husband is also an English teacher, and their friends have sworn to never help them move again because "even libraries don't have that many books."
