Pushing Pencils

Stop what you are doing.

Well, if you are just reading these words, fine. But otherwise stop what you are doing: turn off the music, turn off the yoga video, minimize Skype.

Just give me one second of your time.

Now, please go to Adventures in Pencil Integration and subscribe.


Now. Really. Go subscribe to that blog. I'll wait.


Welcome back.

I've sent you on this subscribing quest because you need to be reading Adventures in Pencil Integration. It is hands-down the funniest, most acute, and wryly distilled call for the full integration of technology in education that I've ever read.

All from the point-of-view of a teacher living in the year 1897.

Hats off to John Spencer for producing a stunning blog; and may we be so lucky as to continue following the trials and travails of your adventure.

ps -- Thanks @concretekax for the tip on this one!


  1. OK, that was funny. Thanks for sharing.

  2. That was great. It was interesting to see the parallels between then and now. And, I think it is an eye opener for some people who don't see the point in educational technology now.

  3. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I so needed this today.

  4. Thanks for plugging my blog. Way cool!

  5. Hilarious! Thanks for the link! John, keep blogging and I'll keep spreading the word.
