It has been a while since I’ve seen artist Patrick Dougherty’s StickWork site.
ThisIsSand has been around for a while and well, I like it.
I found an amusing site (PhoneSpell) that translates telephone numbers into mnemonic phrases. I could spend hours playing with this.
Last year, I re-read Classroom Instruction That Works: Research-based Strategies For Increasing Student Achievement. Afterward, I decided that I would choose one instructional strategy a month and assiduously tweet about the topic each day. Mainly this involves working through the research the authors (Ceri B. Dean, Elizabeth Ross Hubbell, Howard Pitler, and Bj Stone) cited and tweeting the rich insights. I decided that even if no one read my tweets, I would still benefit from the experience. A few people are beginning to respond to my tweets about setting objectives and providing feedback. I am heartened and will continue my project.
