Poetry Saturday -- Disconnected
I, too, am at NCTE. Learning lots. Having plenty of fun. On the brink of Twittering.
The theme of the conference is Because Shift Happens: Teaching in the 21st Century. I have found it quite ironic that the only place I can get reliable (free) wireless internet access is in the lobby of my hotel. Not so convenient. A definite disconnect.
So I wrote this poem (in pencil, in my before-21st-Century-technology writer's notebook):
No free wireless internet
Connection at a conference about
Teaching 21st Century literacies?
The round up was/is at Brimstone Soup.
