I recently got the chance to speak with the creator of a Web series called Blue Fiddles. Let me read the description of the series from its press kit:
Blue Fiddles, is a new web series written by actress Nena Botto. It's the story of three women searching for meaning amongst the day to day grind living in Portland, Oregon. The theme is a mix of comedy and drama that aims to be glamorous through honesty- women who have scars from life experiences not numerous Botox sessions. The characters are complex in their demeanor and wonderfully flawed in their intentions.
Within this interview, Nena tells of how she came up with the idea for the series and just how much filming it turned into a huge collabortive effort between the cast, crew and the city of Portland.
This is an interview with Emmy-award nominated writer, now horror film director Drew Daywalt. Drew created a horror Web series called Camera Obscura. I got the chance to talk to him about how the series came to be and what it the filming experience was like.
“The persistent achievement gap between haves and have-nots in our society is chiefly a verbal gap. There is no greater practical attainment in the modern world than acquiring a bellyful of words. A large vocabulary is the single most reliable predictor of practical, real-world competence…” - Professor E.D. Hirsh
Over one third of our middle school readers are struggling. Vocabulary is the key. The single most accurate predictor of how well a reader understands text is general vocabulary knowledge. Studies show it can grow to a disparity of 30,000 words by eighth grade when intentional, rigorous intervention is not applied. Additionally, these studies confirm there is a direct correlation between “word bank” size and success in school.
Word Lab Web, a vocabulary based reading program for the middle grades, is teacher created, affordable, and in the cloud. It provides personalized, self-paced learning so students can gain authentic word knowledge and practice a variety of comprehension skills. Three half-hour sessions a week provide great gains in reading scores.
The tool is the brainchild of Carla and Richard Kessler. Carla is a 25 year veteran middle grade teacher and former Title I Coordinator and Learning Specialist. Recognized for her skills in innovative curriculum with measurable results, she implemented action research for Word Lab Web in the classroom. Richard, a software engineer, is a veteran coder and IT manager. He has kept Word Lab Web on the leading edge of technology from its origins as a desktop program to its current platform in the Cloud.
Join us as we not only explore lessons learned from their transition into entrepreneurship, but an overview of Word Lab Web and its success.

Are You Making These Seven Web Design Sins? People have different ideas about what makes really good web design. Some think that a website needs to be super-sleek with and up-to-date, modern design in order to get attention.
While other people believe that web design doesn’t really matter all that much and you just need a site that works and lets people do what they want, like Craigslist and Google. And there’s a lot in between. We’re going to cover a very important topic, the MISTAKES you may be making when designing your website.
