new directions

I’m thrilled to announce that this month I began working at The Grove Consultants International (a.k.a. the mothership of visual practice as I know it)! It was one of those moments when a number of different things seem to converge suddenly and then wham! You’re facing in a new direction, seeing new roads in front […]

visiting Adobe

I have to start this off with a little disclaimer: I’m an Adobe fan-girl from way back. I mean way back. Like before Photoshop had layers. Adobe’s apps are robust, capable, flexible, and not buggy. I’m proud of the work I’ve done with them, and like Kathy Sierra says, to turn users into passionate fans, […]

thoughts on the changing role of the teacher

There’s a different way to teach, one that involves mentoring and guiding and not lecturing, a way that’s both harder and easier than the ways it’s often done now. This is a concept that has been recurring in my research over the past few years, getting a little clearer each time but still not quite […]

I <3 Prezi

Keynotes. The final frontier. These are the voyages of the ed tech speaker. Her continuing mission: to explore strange new presentation tools; to seek out new ways to keep her audiences awake; to boldly go where no PowerPoint has gone before. I just finished putting together the presentation on the 2009 Horizon Report that I […]

Runetotem Thursdays!

Several of us in the NMC-guild-to-be have arranged to play together on Thursday nights, from 8-10 pm (Pacific) or so. If that's a good time for you, log in to WoW, create your Alliance character on Runetotem, and whisper Ninmah! We have almost enough people and almost enough gold to make the NMC guild official. […]

NMC Campus in the New York Times!

Well, the article's about Electric Sheep, but NMC Campus (our Second Life space) is mentioned and there's even a picture on C|Net.

Campus Impact paper released

The paper Maximizing Campus Impact: Lessons from the Trenches, which I mentioned last month, was officially released today. You can read all about it (and download a copy of your own) on the NMC's news page. Enjoy :-)

WoW Guild Update

We now have 3 characters, that I know of, on Runetotem (Alliance side), ready to join the guild when it forms. There are lowbies in Goldshire and in Teldrassil, so come level up with us! Let me know if you’re there and I don’t know about it! My toon, Ninmah, hit level six last night. […]

Campus Impact

I’m editing this post. My husband, who does not yet keep a blog but who actively reads them, came home yesterday and said “Your post on Campus Impact might be a little vague, dahling.” (Okay, he didn’t say “dahling,” but the rest is more or less true.) His English upbringing results in a certain delicacy […]

World of Warcraft Guild for NMC Members

I know you’re out there. NMC members who play World of Warcraft. It’s time to step forward and admit it. I’m not talking twelve steps here — who wants to quit, right? — I’m talking guild runs, Strat and Scholo and UBRS. You know you want to! Okay, first we’ll have to get to sixty, […]
