The last post of the year

It has been a wonderful year.  I enjoyed being with my family and friends and have had some great opportunities to learn and share this year. My PLN of friends has grown with people from around the world and I have learned a great deal.  Thanks for everyone that has stopped by for a visit to my humble little piece of the internet.

I hope you have a very Happy New Year, and always remember to keep on learning.

Danny Silva – iteachag – featured in the Merced Sun-Star

Recently, I was lucky enough to be featured on the front page of the local paper, the Merced Sun-Star.  It was a great opportunity to be able to share information about attending the Google Teacher Academy in London as a Lead Learner (presenter). I was also able to share how I have been able to include technology in my agriculture courses at Le Grand High School, including Agriculture Earth Science and Agricultural Communications, a ROP course.

To my surprise the article has been republished more than once on the internet. It was an editor’s pick for the ASCD Smart Brief and also posted on a blog site sponsored by the National Young Farmer Educational Association (NYFEA) – Agriculture’s Promise. It has been a great way to build my PLN with other Agriculture Teachers from around the country.

I would like to thank Nathan Quevedo, Public Information Officer for MCOE for sending out a press release and Jamie Oppenheim for writing a very nice article.  Here is the full article from the Merced Sun-Star‘s website.
