Hi Literacy Teaching and Teacher Education Blog Followers
We had a little hiatus from blogging. Clare was super busy with construction at the Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study; Pooja and Lydia both started new tenure-stream positions at Simon Fraser University and University of Alberta respectively; Cathy has been working on her thesis and teaching new courses; and Clive and Yiola have been super busy. Lots has happened in our work and we will be updating you on our work ….
Said (pictured to the right) will be joining our blogging team.
To those in Canada — Happy Family Day.
To those in the US – Happy President’s Day
To our friends around the world — looking forward to continuing our conversations.
Today is New Year’s Eve and newspapers are full of descriptions of resolutions for 2014. I am not one for making resolutions (maybe because I know that I will not keep them) but this year I am motivated to make a few.
- · Keep blogging. Much to my surprise this has been a fabulous activity. I hope that our readers are enjoying the blogs as much as we have enjoyed writing them.
- · Do not push myself so hard – in other words, relax a bit. Everything does not need to be done ASAP. Emails and work can wait.
- · Keep learning about digital technology. Time to take a few more steps integrating DT into my teaching. Time to learn how to use Twitter!
- · Stay connected to family, friends, and colleagues. They keep me grounded.
Best wishes to all of our readers for a happy and healthy 2014. Clare
