Seeds of Education mural project

I helped get together a one-of-a-kind historic mural at my son’s school, La Ballona Elementary.  We got local muralists Ernesto Del La Rosa, Juan Carlos Munoz,Fabian Debera, Relic, Anna Siqueiros and more to participate through the Sisqueros Foundation of the Arts.  It was an incredible amount of work, 100 foot mural in two days of painting, one day of prep.  If you get a chance, let us know if you want to see it up close and personal.  

Here are some more pictures:

The best workshops

The best workshops are the ones that go way off tangent.  I just came off doing a workshop about Podcasting and we never even got to how to produce a Podcast.  We quickly discovered that there was no need for the instructor to produce a podcast.  Why?  Step #2 of my workshop, Research.  Find out what is out there.  If it exists and is up to date, why reproduce?  In this case, it was a series on Psychology that was on Annenburg Leaner.  The rest of the workshop was spent showing how to embed the podcasts into the learning management system, in this case,  Etudes.
