I use a lot of Apple technology in my curriculum development + I like the people in Apple’s education group + My doctoral interests include communities of practice online = I applied for membership to the ADE program.
They required a video, which I’m posting because a) it’s a 90-second summary of my curriculum adaptation process and b) I introduce Apple to you folks somewhere around the 1:15 mark. I have plenty more remarks – most grateful! – about what the education blogosphere has done for me as a person, as a teacher, and as a worker, but I can summarize 90% of them by reminding you that last week a reader e-mailed a tip about a product which I turned into a WCYDWT math activity which caught the eye of the brand manager of that product who eventually supplied all of us with the company’s internal data on that product.
I don’t really understand that, but I love it.
