At least they’re up front about the value of the credential vs. the learning.

The Wolf Of Bedford Falls
Great trailer mix. Great movie. Even if it does imply that being un married and a librarian is the worst thing that can happen to a woman. (by Owen Weber)

“”I’d say a lot of the complexity [of comics] is not recognized—certainly not the idea of grammar,” says Cohn. “That is controversial, and people often are very surprised by the results that I show.””

I travelled all over the world in 2013, but the best place I went was the hospital

2013 was pretty much the best year of my life yet, both personally and professionally. Check out all of the places I got to go:

I started off the year going to San Francisco! I love this city.

While there, I visited Alcatraz.

I was in town for the amazing Intersection Event. I visited Intel, Google, and Apple HQs while I was there.

I went for the 5th year in a row to EduCon. I took a bunch of people on a tour of the great city of Philadelphia. We went to Ben Franklin’s Privy! These are the kinds of things you only get on my tour of Philly, people!

For February vacation this year, I got a really sweet Groupon, so my wife and I flew out to Dublin for five days. It was pretty great.

Four Courts at Sunset

I once again was fortunate to co-organize Edcamp Boston, and this year I brought some of my totally amazing 5th graders with me. They blew people away.

I made the annual pilgrimage to Fenway Park.

For the first time ever, I attended and presented at ISTE. There were a lot of people, but only one Moby.

I spent some time on Cape Cod. My favorite town on Massachusetts’s muscular arm is Provincetown.

My wife and I saved up our pennies so that we could go to Europe! First we went to Barcelona, which is now one of my favorite places in the world. This is a city I could live in.

Then we took the train/rollercoaster over the Pyrenees to Paris.

The we flew to Rome. Which is mind-blowing.

While there, of course, we had to go to the Vatican.

Back in the states, I drove out to Williamstown, MA to present at the Massachusetts Teachers Association Summer Conference. This is one of my favorite conferences of the year. It’s way more relaxed than most other events.

Beth and I took my brother and his girlfriend (now fiancee! Yes!) to the Big E. We saw tiny pigs racing. They were adorable.

I went to a town hall meeting in Medford where I got to meet Dennis Van Roekel, President of the National Educators Assocation. Here I am telling him that Interactive Whiteboards are a giant waste of money.

I flew on down to Washington, DC, to accept a Bammy Award with these well-dressed members of the Edcamp Foundation.

And I closed out the crazy conference year by presenting at the American Association of School Librarians National Conference with my favorite Librarian about our awesome Library & Technology Program.

But the best place that I went this year was the hospital, so my wife and I could welcome these two amazing human beings to the world.
