NaNoExoMo Going Great for First Two Weeks

Nov 14th, 2010 | By | Category: Adventure, All About Me, Heath & Fitness

So I made NaNoExoMo because November is the month where groups organize to do something everyday for a whole month. The most absurd to me is writing a whole novel in a month (NaNoWriMo is an annual (November) novel writing project). Well, I most certainly wasn’t going to do that. For the past two years […]



New Portable Document Camera Review

Jul 16th, 2010 | By | Category: All About Me, Technology

Last week I was reading my feeds in Google Reader, and I came across a post by Steve Dembo (@Teach42) titled: Accessorizing the iPad. I don’t own an iPad but I wanted to see what new accessories people were using with it. In his post, Steve writes about different methods for displaying the content on […]



My Top 10 Favorite Android Apps

Jun 15th, 2010 | By | Category: All About Me, Mobile, Technology

Okay, someone asked, so here is my list of my top 10 apps. I’ve been rockin’ the Motorola Droid for about 7 months now. I love this phone, even though I covet the HTC Droid Incredible. But things just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t covet some piece of technology even when I have a […]

San Diego 2010 Originally uploaded by dr.coop Well, I haven’t blogged in a while, so I’m just going to try and see if I can still do it. I went to the SITE (Society for Information Technology and Teacher Ed) conference last week. C was able to tag along since she can work from anywhere, […]



How Many Music Players Does One Need?

Mar 14th, 2010 | By | Category: All About Me, Music

Music Players Originally uploaded by dr.coop There’s always room for more. That’s my moto. Actually it’s not. There’s a story behind each mp3 player purchase, and each player has it’s own specific use. Yes, of course, one could probably do it all, but at the time of purchase, that one just might not have been […]



Happy Holidays from the Boomers

Dec 26th, 2009 | By | Category: All About Me

I have to say I was very impressed when I received this video in an email from my mom and her husband. I mean it’s nothing extraordinary but the fact that they were able to shoot, edit, and upload this video to share with family is quite amazing. I make big bucks teaching Boomerz class […]



Will it Float? Vote & Then Watch

Nov 24th, 2009 | By | Category: All About Me

If I throw a 20lb turkey into the pool, will it float? Vote and then watch the answer. I’m testing out combing PollEverywhere with a YouTube video. To vote: Text a CODE to 99503 or or tweet @poll and a CODE. The codes are: Yes = 98100 No = 98101 Maybe = 98150. Vote here. […]



It’s VloMo09 Time Again

Nov 1st, 2009 | By | Category: All About Me

Last year I participated in VloMo08, which is an event where participants post a video everyday for the month of November. I successfully made it through the whole month posting videos, and although it was stressful on some days because I just couldn’t come up with any interesting ideas for videos, I still had fun. […]



Saw Obama at ASU’s Graduation Last Night

May 14th, 2009 | By | Category: All About Me, Politics

ASU Graduation 2009 Originally uploaded by dr.coop I was really excited when my friend and colleague Shelley Rodrigo invited me to go to her graduation at ASU last night. I’m not big on crowds or ceremonies. Heck, I didn’t even go to my own graduations for my Master’s at NAU or my doctorate at Nova […]



Moving on Up to the West Side

Apr 15th, 2009 | By | Category: All About Me, Teaching, Work

I’m in a funk at the moment, and just can’t get motivated to do all the things I really need to do. So I’m blogging. I think the reality of my decision to leave my current job has something to do with my funk. I decided some time ago to leave South Mountain CC and […]
