About Me:
Digital learning, you bet! I attended Dana Owens and Wesley Fryer's first cov workshop. What an authentic learning experience for me and now my students. I applaude digital champions like Dana and Wesley for their efforts. Stephen Covey in his book, "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People", says one must continually reinvent themselves. Education plays a vital role in the economy. I highly suggest reading the book, "Tough Choices or Tough Times" written by The National Center on Education and the Economy. Education must reinvent itself to meet the ever changing demands of the global economy. According to "Tough Choices or Tough Times", the standard of living in the United States will erode away if we, as a nation, do not change. Another book I suggest reading is "Technopoly" by Neil Postman. Technology represents what the stirrup did for man. In medieval times, the stirrup revolutionized war; man could now fight on horseback. Teachers, I encourage you to stir up with your stirrup! Look out Encyclomedia, I feel a "break out" session brewing! As Garage Band says, "Soldier on!"

Welcome to our Ning, Whitney! Can you please upload your Asher student video interviews with veterans here? We used this space for our video uploads this week at UCO and it worked great. Eventually we will also upload these to our video server that is being purchased, but for now uploading here is our plan. If you have questions please let me know! :-)

I must be the first veteran to have a blog on your page. I served
in the Navy approximately 20 mos.during and after ww11. To get
a history of the transport ship i sailed to Okinawa on go to ASK
search engine and type in usslagrange apa124 and take a look at
it.

we anchored at enowetoc only a couple of days and arrived
at Okinawa 29th of july. we remained anchored in the bay for
a week for some reason. We were under kamikaze alert quiet
often during that time. Aug. 5th about 60 of us in my outfit went
on shore and set up tents because i remember the next day
aug.6 was when the 1st atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima,
Aug. 13 was when the ship came under attack so I had been off
the ship about a week,these dates i do remember. The dates and
wording in the one chapter is not exactly right. My ww2 experiences
was not much compared to most of the soldiers,sailers and marines,
but i'll share with you what i have.
