SlowpokeBlog 27 Mar/13 For current and future blog posts, please visit my new website, jensorensen.com . I haven't quite finished fleshing out the new site yet, but it's mostly-functional. Remember to update those bookmarks and RSS feeds! 20 Mar/13 This cartoon has generated predictable comments about being about a "silly" subject. "Educate consumers, don't engage in Prohibition!" This isn't about "controlling" or "feeling superior to" other people. 19 Mar/13 I tried to post this last week, but my server kept choking for some reason. A couple of these drawings were purloined from a series of illustrations I was doing for the Austin Chronicle.

I've noticed a string of egregious idlers lately. 20 Feb/13

10 Great Ways that Educators are Using LiveBinders | LiveBinders Blog It is so much fun to go to the LiveBinders site and see all the new ways that educators are using LiveBinders to curate content. Every day that I go to the site I see a new interesting binder, so I thought it would be great to highlight some great examples in this post: ePortfolios – I think Jackie Gerstein created one of the first ePortfolios on LiveBinders and it continues to be one of the best: Computer Lab – Are you always finding more sites that you want to share in the computer lab? If you keep them in a LiveBinder, the students will always have access to your latest finds, like this one created by ‘dboyd’: Administration – Sometimes there is an event at school (like state testing) where the information changes constantly. In this case, it is helpful to have all relevant information in one place, where everybody can access it. Fun – Ok, I know I was going to stop at 10, but who says binders are all work and no play? Here are some more examples. Like this: Like Loading...
