We talk about:
As schools consider books for summer reading, I wanted to plug my own book — Tech with Heart: Leveraging Technology to Empower Student Voice, Ease Anxiety, & Create Compassionate Classrooms. We are primed for really important work in edtech at this moment in time. Teachers have so many tools in their toolbox; the next step will be to think very intentionally about what to keep and what to leave behind. Additionally, as the urgent need to make massive shifts settles, teachers will have time to reflect on what worked in remote and hybrid learning and how to redesign in-class lessons…
There is nothing better than having an efficient system for your workflow to keep on top of tasks and ideas, to quickly reference notes and thoughts, and to jot down things you need to stay on top of from day to day.
About six months ago, I stumbled upon NotePlan. And I have used NotePlan every day since that first day. NotePlan is a Mac & iOS app that is advertised as a calendar-driven note taker.
You may have seen me post a first impressions video back in October — #Productivity App: @NoteplanApp — Notetaker, calendar, digital bullet journal all…
Thanks to Wacom for the opportunity to share some of my experiences as a flipped classroom and online math teacher over the years! In this blog, I share:
I had a wonderful opportunity to give a talk at GoGuardian + Pear Deck’s Conversations About: Mental Health and Wellness conference. Those of you who have read my book, Tech with Heart, know this is a topic that is very important to me, on multiple levels. You can catch my full presentation below:
How can we ensure each of our learners has the opportunity to have their ideas seen and heard? By intentionally integrating technology into lessons, teachers can give all students in the room an opportunity to share their voice and express their ideas in a format that…
I had the privilege to be on Alan’s November’s podcast again! This time, Lainie Rowell, Alan November, and I sat down to talk about out collective experiences teaching in a blended and online format.

Here are the session slides, with many more resources to click and dig deeper into the solution that will work best for you based on tools you are already using in your classroom.
Wacom Connected Ink just wrapped up, and it was an awesome event. Not only did I have a chance to attend, but I also had a speaking spot! Connected Ink was a hybrid event; while it took place on stage in Tokyo, much of it was broadcast from people’s homes (which is what I did). Hopefully, one day I’ll have a chance to go to the live event, but until then, I am grateful that I had a chance to present and participate this year.
It has been a while since I have posted on the theme of productivity. I am the type of person who keeps notes on everything. I don’t have a great memory, but I do have organized systems!
About a month ago, I discovered Noteplan — a Mac & iOS app that is a notetaker and calendar all in one. For people who are a fan of bullet journaling, this might be just the app you’ve been looking for. It has a robust, global search, fantastic hyperlinking between pages and dates, and a simple editor.
