Ink-Blogging, TabletPC Guy, Honors Class


Welcome TabbyCat with your first post on Inkernet. Loren recently commented about his beta program for blog-inking and notes that TDavid is developing separate approach.

Thanks, Lora, for the picture of rows of TabletGuy!

I better get writing, so I can submit something to Rob Bushway’s TabletGuy Contest. Let’s see, I wonder if I can come up with a story about how TabletGuy saves the day in a school before someone else does?

Lanny Arvan muses interestingly about how he’ll balance use of technology with other learning guides as he organizes a freshman econ class for honor students. He does not plan to require use of a textbook for the class. Faculty at the University of Illinois level write textbooks for use at other schools. They frequently try out their ideas for their manuscript on their students. Many teachers will find that Lanny identifies decision points they also make about courses they offer in elementary and high schools.
