  2. We, my First Year Composition class, is meeting in the pencil lab today. It is a trial run. I'll let you know how quickly the students adapt to the technology. First, they'll take a pre-test to assess their prior skills with the technology. Need a way to build "control" into this quasi-experimental study. There will be a post-test next week.

  3. Very interesting...and fun! What a cool experiment even if it didn't start out as that.

  4. Cool to watch with a variety of witty and silly tweets. So what time is the organized #pencilchat? You can now be a speaker at conferences as the founder and write a book. Wait a minute you already did that! A little bit backwards there.

    Seriously I hope you get some good publicity for your book out of this as that was my favorite blog that you have done.

    As David mentioned, shows the story in pictures

    cheers!

    yours in (digital) pencil,

  6. Shows that despite all, teachers haven't lost their creativity - or humour.

  7. I remember a CUE (Computer Using Educators) conference a decade back where Seymour Papert was the keynote and he got up and asked, "Why is there no PUE?"
