McCarthy's Law #75

I actually enjoy the many benefits of technology in the classroom (so much so that I'm not sure I could really go back to the traditional classroom).  THIS battle, however, is the one single issue that drives me the most insane.

McCarthy's Law #74

I have been teaching in a one-to-one classroom for over four years.  So, I don't make this commentary from a position of ignorance or one based on fear of change.

My Personal Favorites

After writing and drawing 72 of these comics, here are my 15 favorites thus far:

It's really hard to pick my personal top favorite out of the list, so I won't.  Agree or not, I hope you all enjoy them.

    McCarthy's Law #72

    I've heard from more than one person that The Chinese Fire Drill was getting a little too dark and angry.  I pitched my most recent idea to my girlfriend, Wendi Evans (a 4th grade special-education teacher), and she helped me redesign #72 into something I'm much happier with (and even more proud of as well).

    Also, while I'm offering props, I want thank my mother, Mary Wheeler (a 7-year school board member who led with progressive, pro-teacher mindset) for suggesting the creation of Dashing Dan Wunderkind.

    I hope you all enjoy!
