Educational policy makes me want to squeal with joy. This week my post at the ol’ Issues and Perspectives blog deals with banned books. Take a gander if that sort of thing is your bag.
Three months ago I was driving down H26 towards Milton, WI when I came across an abandoned bar. I took a walk around the bar and found a window open. I didn’t have a flashlight, but I could see that the floor was a little unsteady. No one else was with me and I didn’t want to risk it. One of the cardinal rules of Urban Exploration is to never go alone. I once almost fell three stories checking out a brewery alone in Germany, so I wasn’t going to risk falling again. This weekend I went back with Kaela in tow. Everything in the kitchen is now falling through the floor. Most of the pictures I snapped did not turn out due to poor lighting, but there were a few good ones.
As part of my LIBMEDIA 638 class I had to produce a tech skills screencast. I settled on cropping an image with iPhoto. If you’ve got four minutes and time to kill, by all means have a look.
I wasn’t going to post my work for my Issues, Perspectives and Directions in Education course this week because I really struggled with it. But apparently it struck a chord with some of the classmates. Skip over the parts where I summarize the three articles if you do read it.
