Our PBS course concluded last night and, even after 12 years of course facilitation, I miss you all.
Here, I make my pitch for dedicated educators, parents (and especially parents who are educators!) to get very involved in your local school politics. The school board, the local teacher representation board, the local PTA are excellent ways to navigate your local education system and provide your expertise.
All: please consider yourself nominated by me, for your next level of educational service!!

PBS TeacherLine uses the Canvas Learning Management System for its full array of online undergrad and graduate courses. Here are some tips shared among us in our course faculty forum.
In the cyclical nature of online courses, it can be a full semester or a year between administrations of the same course.
Before each administration, it is imperative to check external links to content.
This used to be an mind-numbing exercise.
Within the Canvas LMS, there is a tool to automatically check external links. It’s called the Link Validation Tool.
Here is the path: Go to Settings (course navigation list at very bottom) & then choose “Validate Links in Context” & then “Start Link Validation.”

This week in our PBSTeacherLine course, Teaching Lifelong Reading Habits, we are reading about, thinking about, and digitally posting about electronic books. We’re firing up our Kindles- it promises to be a page-turner!
After exploring the pros and cons of electronic books you will learn where and how to find free eBooks, identify the skills your students need to be able to use them, and explore a wealth of resources that help you integrate them into the classroom. Here are a couple of link edits to note:
