    Okay, so without prompting, today my high school senior, who graduates in 5 days, asked, “Mom, do we still have Zoombinis?” I said, “yes”. He wanted to know if anyone has ever beaten the game. I asked, like you mean someone has gotten all 240 Zoombinis to the island? “yeah”. Bring it home I am going to beat that game this summer. A noble goal for a guy going off to be a civil engineer at UMO in Sept. Another affirmation that I am still on the right track!
    Over and out. Cheryl

    BTW, no one that I know has beaten the Zoombini game, all levels all 240 Zoombinis! Do you know anyone? Maybe my guy will be one of few.

    A guild in a game is just like a trade guild in real life. Usually these groups/clans are groups of gamers that have like skills or have very simmilar goals.

    I have really enjoyed your insights and sharing your joys, challenges, victories, and reflections with your podcast audience. I have more recently begun reading your blog, as well.
    I am preparing to co-teach a class at the local university about Web 2.0, and in preparing for that, was led to this website, which I wanted to share with you:

    It just seemed like something you and Cheryl should be aware of, in case you wanted to look at some of the tools on this page for your “Geek of the Week” feature.

    One more idea for you all.
    I was inspired to share it here by the “Do More with Flickr” link that Cheryl shared.
    I just want to encourage the use of “bundles” on del.ici.ous.
    The way this works is to click on the link way at the bottom of the right collumn, under all of your tags. The link says, “arrange tags”.
    It will then allow you to name a “bundle”, then click on any of your tags that should go in that bundle.
    It’s like putting your tags in catagories. This has affected my tagging, and will help when I want to use my delicious account for presentations or sharing it with people that I’m training, etc.
    I’m not the best at this tool, by any means, but here’s my delicious account:
    Wes Fryer is good at this, as well:

    Hi Guys,

    Thought you may be interested in this one. I found a presentation that Prensky did to a group of educators here in Australian. I have added all the audio and powerpoint slides to a zip file on my blog (
