"This is very interesting. My first idea was with cyberlearning meaning the internet and therefore any learning online, but I have been persuaded by the other person doing the research that it is how you described. Interesting, thanks"

"This seems to be an old update but a friend of mine in Texas passed this information- http://go-att.us/s4bc. ACU in Texas has been one of the lesser known yet progressive schools with respect to combining Technology with Learning. Read on...!"

Cyberlearning definition help please

I am working on a project and am trying to decide if the term cyberlearning involves just networked learning with a computer, or if it includes other technologies such as simulations.  Your thoughts would be much appreciated.See More

Hi Helen: Two notes, Thanks for nice words about the L&L point-counterpoint. I thought my response was simply logical but a majority of people disagree and want teacher tech testing, so who knows! About webinars- the links on the PBL Better with Practice page should be all you need.

Hi Helen: You asked about getting to sessions you've missed. Can you be more specific? There are several ways these get archived.

Hi Helen,

So glad you are presenting! I added a 'vodcasting' discussion relating to you on LinkedIn. Are you on LinkedIn?

Here's a link, but I'm not sure if you will be able to view the discussion board.

Hi, Helen. I'd love to talk more. I have done several handheld projects in NC, and we also have handheld curriculum for math instruction. See www.k12handhelds.com

Hi Helen,

With your interest in Technology Integration, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service. Here’s a public class recording conducted by Nellie Deutsch on Technology Integration.

Hi Helen
It's good to hear from others involved with students in challenging circumstances. If you're interested, I have recently set up a ning site

'Supportive behaviour management'

which is designed to look at all the tools and strategies we can use to help students navigate successfully through the education system as it is. It would be good to see your take on helping challenging students.

Look forward to seeing you there
Mike
