Hey, I like cat blogs.
Just working here at Steenbock Library, UW-Madison, WI
Have to get some posters mounted for display. I made a poster of O.A. and Ethel Allen, who were bacteriologists at UW-Madison, and published Leguminosae, which is a seminal work for their field.
Ethel just gave 850K to the library when she passed away. Least I could do is make a nice poster.
Hope all Westlakers are well. Peace! -Matt
Hi Carolyn, This looks like a good thing to do on a Friday. I know that is what my cats do most days – until three in the morning when they want in or out. Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. I really like that you posted the video by Karl and that David modified. I am going to be cirulating it here, hoping people will start to get the picture. I also like the book video! I will be sharing that with my teachers!! Keep up the great work! 🙂
I am doing as Janice who blogs at Texas Malahini bade me, and dropping by to leave a comment.
I’m not a teacher, but I write a lot about learning issues..
I am also a board member of a private middle school, The Girls’ Middle School, in Mountain View, California. We are in our second year of instituting a laptop program, in which all teachers and all students have and use laptops, and the power of computing is fully integrated into the curriculum. Year one — the faculty were issued laptops and began to craft curriculum changes based on ubiquitous computing. Year two — the sixth grade issued laptops and began the program in the classroom.
I see a few entries down you have the very funny video on the technology upgrade from scrolls to books.
I’m wondering about the laptop program and how it is going with the student issued laptops? What changes are you seeing at your campus? Problems? Benefits? How do sixth graders handle having the laptops?
How is the teacher laptop program going as well? I’m guessing teachers are finding that a valuable tool?
Thanks for dropping by our Friday blogging…!
I am going to give a pass on the laptop questions for now, punting them over to our computer science teacher to answer.
Instead, I’ll share with you some of the k-12 teaching blogs I follow

I hope some of your teachers find something to enjoy.
