    The grade nine English teachers at our school decided to give the students an audio/radio assignment for the memoir The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. The book had been chosen by the LCC Reads Committee as the "LCC Reads" book choice for the school for 2006. Every student and teacher in the school takes part by reading the book.
    The audio assignment is a complex learning situation - first the students are required to research thematic topics of the book to inform them as they create interview questions for either a fictionalized character from the book, or from a real subject matter expert in the community. The interview questions must represent questions from the six different levels of Bloom's taxonomy. The students then go on to audio record their interviews and then edit their audio files.

    I am also very blessed and privileged to have an incredibly supportive set of administrators who have opened doors for me, provided me with gadgets and software, and caught some of the vision of this new read/write/speak/listen web. Special thanks to Chris Shannon (the blogging headmaster) and Gary Millward (Director of IT) at Lower Canada College who have been particularly encouraging and helpful. According to so many of the educators that I know or hear about, it appears that a cooperative administration who will lend support and promote innovative educators is a rare occurrence.
    And, of course, I must also thank my many collaborative partners, past and present, from all around the world: Reuven Werber, Shaun Creighton, Milana Zubritskaya, Karen Fahy, Vicki Davis, Lee Baber, and many others I will probably forget to name.... What a privilege it is to rub shoulders with you. I have often said that participating in these international projects has been the best source of professional development that I could ask for!

    My newest adventure into the exploration of web 2.0 tools is podcasting. I have forced myself to seek out educational podcasts and listen when I have "down time", such as traveling or when doing housework. There are some great podcasts out there and they are relatively easy to find. One can look them up on iTunes or just do a quick google search.
