Motivation comes in all shapes and sizes.

My colleague (and great friend), Chris, and I have been pushing each other this year.  Not only do we have great conversations about kids and reaching all learners, we have blogged and twittered our way into the 21st century.  A new genre of learning.  We are not only the teachers incorporating technology into our daily lessons, but we are the learners of this inspiring technology as well.  Learning together.

Check out what Chris created:  a prezi.  An online presentation motivating students to read this summer.  I L.O.V.E this!  And, of course, I can't WAIT to try it out for myself!  I could easily make a prezi about where we can catch our students writing this summer!

What do you think?   I'm motivated.  What about you?  


  1. It is absolutely wonderful! I am working more & more on the tech skills & am teaching a blog class next year, so anything new is a gift for sure. Please keep sharing more. It's a great idea for capturing ideas, information, maybe even a poem. Thanks!
    And-did you receive your Stenhouse book? I did, & want to thank you again for reminding me.

  2. That is very cool - I've never heard of a prezi before. I could really get into doing this... thanks

  3. It is wonderful to work/motivate/get inspired/inquire together with someone. I look forward to seeing your Prezi.

  4. Love, Love Love, this!!!! I can't wait to learn this and make one as well...I knew I picked two great partners for next school year!

  5. Yes, I received my book, too. I ordered Day by Day, as I hadn't bought it yet, so it was great to get it as a gift. On to summer reading!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
