Sunday morning with lots of sunshine and heat and it’s a perfect taste of the summer.
I am writing a post after a week of struggling to get a new digital piece finished. The one above about a great Kindergarten teacher as been long overdue. I had a mission to document her work from last summer. I had photos and video downloaded in my spanking brand new software and often clicked around for a visit but I left it, feeling that I was missing something.
Finally, with the interview I needed, I got to work. Slowly of course. I kept opening video clips, watching and then closing. I moved around photos and started building the timeline and as I worked, Apple worked to update the software and make it easier to work with.
I had a target date, a workshop presentation for the HVWP SI’12 Orientation yesterday and while I could have presented without it, it was so nice to have it.
Rebecca has no problem opening her classroom to the world and going public. She can tell her story like no one I know and it was just what this group of teachers needed to see.
We need to break the ONE STORY that’s being told about teachers and the digital approach was a great format.
Of course, I am thinking about everything I didn’t say, but I am more satisfied than I’m not. Feels good to keep at this. Remember the early days?
I began my workshop with my first piece and ended with my newest one. What a lot of time has passed in between.
PS. This TED talk inspired my workshop and worked well with Rebecca’s story:
