Wifi in Schools

Wifi in K-12 schools in Victoria, BC specifically. There was so much twitter action, I had to collect what I could. The tweets are a bit out of order chronologically but I tried to make sense of the themes. I’ve been watching the debate brew over at http://wifiinschools.ca/ and while I believe that wifi is […]

Critically Reflective Doodler

My Flickr stream and blog are filling up with these digital doodlings from conferences and meetings. I’ve made some pretty cool connections by doing these sketchnotes.

I modified this one in 20 seconds by changing the Google map to St.Catharines and the tweets to #Brocku: Here is slightly more extensive remix of the Buffy Vs Edward YouTube video, looking at the bureaucratic blockades Jonthan […]
