Creating a Comic Strip

My latest accomplishment in Web 2.0 is the creation of this comic strip.

We are learning about being good digital citizens and the responsibilities it entails (don't steal people's work off the Internet, don't bully people in emails, don't use another person's password...) in our "Computer Warriors Class." www.computerwarriors.ning.com. It is fun and an incredible learning experience.

I created this avatar as part of the web 2.0 Playground classes offered by the State Department of Education. I had a hard time thinking of something for my avatar to say. Technology really is a lot of fun to me. My computer warriors are making avatars for their class social network pages. I need to make it public so people can see what we are doing.

Hotel Humor

I thought this was funny enough to take a picture of and then blog about.

The card on the pillow reads:

Comfy pillows may cause drowsiness. Avoid operating heavy machinery while using.

Fall Break in OKC

Sitting in Java Dave's drinking java, of course, and enjoying their free wifi on my little purple netbook, feeling part of city life. I'm up here going to some free workshops at the State Department of Education, all about social networks. Today was Twitter, Wiffiti, Poll Everywhere and Delicious. Tomorrow is a full day of blogging and copyright, both appeal to the librarian in me.

This is a nice get-away for me. I enjoy the solitude of a hotel room to myself. And being alone with me in a crowded cafe. I'm a people person but I also need a dose of solo from time to time.

In some of the classes I teach, we learn about learning styles, brain dominance, multiple intelligences... Almost all high school students are social or interpersonal. I tend to be intrapersonal. I crave time by myself.

I'm off to find a Curves for my daily exercise and maybe a Target to buy an umbrella.

Happy Travels!
