Blog monster hungry. Feed me.
I’m not big on the retroactively “sorry I haven’t been blogging” posts. I’d rather proactively explain why I’m not going to be around here for the next several months.
It isn’t for lack of interest in math education or for lack of interesting things happening in math education. For instance:
- My research group had a conversation about successful teacher professional development with Tom Carpenter, lead author of one of the most successful teacher professional development programs ever. Lots to share there.
- There were two especially useful sessions at CMCN14 I’ve wanted to share for months.
- RER published a meta-analysis of computerized feedback (useful summary) that I’m sure would find us all in a productive fight.
- Lots of
snarktrenchant analysis of a current Khan Academy initiative.
- Two curriculum confabs.
- Lots of great classroom action to talk about.
But my dissertation hearing is scheduled for mid May. I’m in the middle of data collection with lots of writing and analysis ahead and I’m sure I need to become a bit more ruthless in managing my time and writing.
Please use this as an open thread to talk about whatever while I’m off dissertating. Also here’s all the great classroom action I haven’t written about over the last twelve months. Plenty of food for the blog monster there.
