Current Obsessions - Summer Break 2010/2011

A monthly update on where my head is at right now

New interests:

Early access to my Christmas present:  The 1973 BBC series The Ascent of Man
Exploring new (for me) software: Adobe Captivate, Microsoft OneNote
Standards Based Grading - exploring the beta for ActiveGrade

New thoughts: (new posts brewing...)
Mathematics is like an elephant
Living, learning and working in the cloud

Active interests:

Professional Learning Network: Yammer, twitter, edmodo

On the back burner for now: 
Mathematics: GeoGebra, CAS, Ability grouping, Primary/Secondary transition

Open Textbook, Creative Commons
The Research-Practice divide
