Mitt första blogginlägg?

Vad var ditt allra första blogginlägg? frågar TheJennie, och bjuder på både pepp och nostalgi. Det borde ju vara en enkel fråga att besvara, kan man tycka. Fast hur ska man räkna? Jag började skriva dagsfärska inlägg i januari 1998, men då var liksom inte begreppet blogg uppfunnet. Det gick heller inte att kommentera inläggen. […]

Det här är lag Lärarnas tidning/TV4:s presentation på Hackathon i datajournalistik som jag var på i helgen. Äntligen har journalisterna fått ett eget 24-timmars nördevent!

Skolforum, utbyten och ikt

Höstens två mest intensiva jobbveckor är över. Att bevaka Skolforum är roligt men ibland lite frustrerande. Jag vill så mycket och ser så många möjligheter, men tiden är begränsad. Jag blir inspirerad av lärare som tar initiativ som The Cage och EdCamp. Båda evenemangen gick av stapeln på måndagen, och båda drivs av vanliga lärare […]

Second great news is the response from the […]
