Tip of the Day!

It’s been over a month since I published my last article, so I just wanted to check in with my readers. I have every intention of continuing this blog indefinitely, or as long as possible. My hiatus has been due to a recent lack of time. I have enrolled in courses to become an educational consultant, which has tapped into my time for this project. This project is one of the reasons that I am (eventually) leaving the field of teaching for that of being a consultant. This new career will provide me with the increased income that I need to develop this project adequately and to give it the chance to thrive that it so deserves.

In short, though my blogs will be less frequent until my courses are done, this blog, like my enthusiasm for the Energize Education project, will carry on. Thanks for reading.

Project Update: I received a paperback edition of my book!

After four years of searching and writing, I have finally had the opportunity to hold my magnum opus in my hands in the form of of published manuscript.  I am so ecstatic that words almost elude me. It is my sincerest hope that this book will prove to be of value to readers and that it will spread awareness that open source alternatives to proprietary educational technologies exist.

Project Update

I am happy to announce that this manuscript will be reviewed by Dr. Paul McKimmy, Professor of Educational Technology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Dr. McKimmy will conduct the review after this semester ends. Needless to say, this is a very exciting and I am anxious to read his review. Don’t forget that you can buy a copy of Energize Education through Open Source: Using Open Source Software to Enhance Learning here.

Project Status

I’ve finished reviewing rhe proposed cover and content layouts for Energize Education Through Open Source and submitted modification forms. The design team at Lulu Publishing did a bang-up job as you all will soon see.
