  1. I do know what a donkey kick is, and I am up to the challenge of having a kick-off...

    Super fun video - thanks for ending the year on a positive and happy note. And since there seems to be some doubt about the #artsed pln Lego Recreation - here is the link to prove any doubters:

  2. So sad I missed this! I love these awards. So many awesome ones this year and thank you for mine and sadly it's true. And that is so true that Jerry is the most likely to have a Zombie Apocalypse page. I have to go search that to see if it is true. Kelly is so incredibly awesome, Adam has given the best ISTE keynote I've seen. And you, Nick, and Tim are the Edufun spirit. You guys bring so much joy and laughter to our PLN. I feel very blessed to know you both and really loved seeing your double keynote live and being in the front! It was cooler than attending a rock concert or being splashed by Shamu :-) and possibly better than getting a watermelon in my face at a Gallagher show :-)


Please post your thoughts here. Thanks!
