In an outstanding reminder that teachers working in digital spaces need to be digitally resilient, I had a hard-core technology melt-down in a session on digital tools that facilitate collaborative work in professional learning communities today.
Basically, I was trying to post a series of new resources for participants to explore that weren’t already included in the materials that I had handed out for the session. Typically, that kind of content gets posted on a separate blog that I maintain for session materials.
The hitch for today is that my session materials blog service — Posterous — was acting SUPER wonky. At times, I couldn’t find the blog at all. At times, I could — but I couldn’t make a post.
In the end, I posted the content here:
