    “Without the time machine, all choices have the possibility of being wrong.”

    I recently read Scott Berkun’s book, “The Year Without Pants.” It is an informative and entertaining book about his more-than-a-year working for WordPress.com, reporting on what it is like to work in a remote-only environment. He offers insights into the daily life of managing a team across the globe, and compares them to his own […]

    Taking the questions from the previous post, Questions for Thought, I am going to turn the tables and take a turn as if the questions were posed to me. The framework for my answers sometimes relates to how technology supports learning, since that is the focus on this site. Here we go… 1. What do I need […]

  • Questions for Thought

    I recently was introduced to a great post written by Terry Heick last year around this time, 26 Questions Every Student Should Be Able to Answer.
