#EdSurge50 Project

I am so excited to announce that I have been honored to have my first article published to EdSurge.com today as part of their Fifty States Project or #EdSurge50. The #EdSurge50 Project is an,
"initiative to publish articles by educators in each of the 50 states and U.S. territories (Puerto Rico, District of Columbia, Guam, US Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands, and so on) by the end of 2014."
I was lucky enough to be chosen to represent Utah and I wrote about the need for continued teaching of handwriting skills in this technology driven society. Part of the inspiration for the article came from my own article Need For Cursive which I posted back in May 2013. I felt very strongly about making sure my students learned and used cursive writing then and I still feel just as strong, if not more so, that they really work on their handwriting skills.

I would love for you to go and read the article on EedSurge.com and then if you enjoy it, share it out with your PLN and everyone else! Then feel free to comment on it and let me know your thoughts on the subject of handwriting in this digital age.
