"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"
"You're probably long done with this project, but I thought I'd share some thoughts.
1) I think the strong association with networked computers (as opposed to just computers) came from the NSF. Their 2008 Taskforce on Cyberlearning report…"
"I have used an interactive tablet, both USB and bluetooth. I like the flexibility of the bluetooth to roam the classroom. the USB has its drawbacks, in that you are tied to the computer. Once you get use to them, they are so nice and you use a lot…"
"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.
Have you used SMART Response?
A simple click speaks volumes with SMART Response. SMART Response stands out among other products because of its compatibility with SMART Notebook software. The answers to the information you are testing…"
"I think netbooks are really going to take off in education in the coming years. A lot of schools chose not to use them because they have less memory. But using an Ubuntu OS, you can get a ton into just a couple of gigs, and all the software is…"
"I am writing a grant for technology and was wondering what types of classroom technologies teachers find to be the most helpful- interactive whiteboards, handheld interwrite boards, ipods, student response systems, or anything else? Please tell me…"
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
"I taught ELL students for five years, and blogging was the best thing I ever did. My 4th graders blogged an hour a week, and their writing scores were 20% higher than their peers. (Try classblogmeister.com -- it's pretty easy for kids;…"
"We included one period a week for Flexible Grouping. Some children go to a remedial teacher, another goes to Rosetta Stone and the third works with the teacher or in groups and then they switch. We also discovered that the kids would even stay after…"
I completed my Ph.D. in Education at UNC-Chapel Hill. My focus was in educational technology and mathematics. I am now an Assistant Professor of Instructional Technology at Old Dominion University, Virginia.

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.
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.
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
