The 2014 Geeklie Awards

The 2014 Geeklie Awards

Each summer, I will be presenting a Geeklie Award to an esteemed blogging colleague who has shown dedication, innovation, and leadership in the world of educational blogging. I will also present a Geek of the Year award to the person I feel has had the largest impact in the past 12 months on the development and guidance of our digital PLC’s goal to further our technological prowess.

Feel like a computer genius/wizard: Mouse Without Borders

Have you ever wanted to feel like you were the master of your technology? I thought so – now is the chance.

Lots of times, we counselors (and teachers or administrators) have an old desktop but also a laptop that we need to use for different purposes. What if you wanted or needed to use both?

I want to thank all the counselors, supervisors, and grad students who took the time to create a submission for this scholarship – the results were pretty great and made my job difficult. I really wish I could have given it to all of you, but I had to narrow it down and did my best to do so.

The most important thing is that you all have used something new and have created tools that many can use (including yourself!). I hope that this challenged you and that you gained some knowledge and confidence in yourself. Do not be afraid to strike out, start over, and struggle through something – that is called learning and that is what we ask students to do each and every day.
