Window to EduBlogger World - Quick Reflection

It's been nearly a week since our initial virtual meet-ups for EduBloggerWorld. Since the meet-ups, I've had a little time to think about what we experienced, and what we accomplished. As a result, I will now share a few observations I have made and pose a few questions for our community to answer. I will be frank and open, and encourage your thoughts as to how we can improve.

A Few Observations

Hi, my name is Amy Blackburn. I teach Freshman Biology at Rochester High School in Rochester, IN. This year we have instituted a new learning style. It is called New Technology High. It is a project based learning style. We use projects to teach the standards instead of lecture, lecture, lecture. We have been in school for 3 weeks now and the students seem to like it. It is a lot of work, but the teachers are more like coaches than teachers, this is very different, but fun. We use a lot of… Continue

World to the EduBloggerWorld

Last night I sat in on a meetup at EdubloggerWorld with about a dozen others from around the world. It was great to listen to and be part of the conversation, although I say that loosely since my microphone was not working. One of the requests was for those of there to post a picture of what we look at while blogging.

Where do I blog? I have two pictures, when I blog at work and when I blog at home and here they are. This one from work, I like to look at the world map and dream of the…

La verdad es que la cuenta que creé para mi asignatura sólo lo he usado para mandar recados a mis alumnos o recordarles fechas importantes. La personal, la abrí hace poco más de un mes para…

Why I blog

I’ve been a teacher for more than 30 years. Some years ago I started to get tired of teaching, I started to get bored, this had never happened to me and I didn’t know

how to deal with it. I had always thought that teaching involved changes, we

use different books, have different students, deal with different situations.

But I started to be too conscious of the repetition Later on I realized this

was happening…

conducting our faculty first days Professional Development Days
activities, based on this summer's Professional Learning Community

ever doing anything else...well, I guess I never really have.

birthday problem the third

So how do i use what i've got to solve the problem ?

well a good suggestion was to simplify the problem to fewer people and fewer days in a year.

Let us make a year of ten and see how that works. So i was thinking on the way home again that the chance of one person have a birthday on one of the ten days is


(have to figure a way to get math on to this page) so if i picked two people than the chance…

birthday the third

This is getting confusing, class today we tried to simplify it using a table of the possibility of a co-incident birthday and few people and a year of few days. Unfortunately the table doesn't show up here with the lines, but maybe i can insert the table as a picture, yip that worked i copied the table to ms paint saved it as bitmap and voila. Tried to uses ms photo ed but the picture was ridiculously small.
