cprofitt replied to Rebekah Donaldson's discussion Will technology take precedence over paper, pens, and writing? Should it?
"-= sigh =- I can only imagine the questions asked by skilled penmen world over when Johannes Gensfleisch zur Laden zum Gutenberg invented the printing press. I really think you are not talking about technology, but computers and digital technology.…"

cprofitt replied to Michelle Birch's discussion Reflection as part of the Curriculum: Is technology tainting reflection or does it encourage reflection?
"I do not think technology limits reflection in anyway. Certainly there are some products, such as twitter, that do not naturally encourage reflection. To summarize technology as a whole in such a conversation would be similar to equating a cocktail…"

cprofitt replied to Marc Schulz's discussion Should we think of cell phones as devices? in the group Cell Phones in Education
"It is amazing to see anyone that still struggles with thinking of smart phones as devices; cell phones are too broad a group though. For those still fighting the issue you might want to do some reading about augmented human intellect. Vannevar Bush…"

cprofitt replied to Kate Hughes's discussion I-pads, android tablets, netbooks or laptops?
"And the cost of connectivity. While the practice is rumored to be on the way out the iPad requires a computer to 'activate' the device."

cprofitt replied to Cathy Herstead's discussion What do you think is a good balance between traditional books, worksheets, pen and paper and technology in a middle school English class?
"When you saw a program that was filled with errors created by students... I would say the computer teacher and English teacher were both to blame; as well as all the other subject teachers that utilize English as the language of choice for…"

cprofitt replied to Cathy Herstead's discussion What do you think is a good balance between traditional books, worksheets, pen and paper and technology in a middle school English class?
"Practice does not require a worksheet... it requires effort and feedback. Technology, in this case, is not your enemy. My daughter writes short stories on a blog and gets feedback from that. That feedback is from my wife, myself and the Internet…"

cprofitt replied to Bonnie Taylor's discussion What are your goals for the 2011-2012 school year?
"I have to be honest I would never recommend that a teacher become a 'blank' certified teacher if that 'blank' equals a brand. I have little interest in becoming a shill for a certain brand. I am planning on the following in July…"

cprofitt replied to Matt Montagne's discussion Why use MS Office anymore on student lab machines?? in the group Free & Open Source Software
"Sadly you have missed many of the 'features' that make adopting open source advantageous by boiling down the argument to your personal view of 'no cost' vs. some cost. It also maintains, what in my opinion, is a misguided and old…"

cprofitt replied to McDougleC's discussion Classroom Management Classroom Computers
"Some have suggested Apple Remote Desktop, but this will cost quite a bit of money for such a small number of computers and will only work on Apple OS X computers. I would suggest using the the FOSS iTalc (Intelligent Teaching and Learning with…"

cprofitt commented on Bob Munson's blog post Ipad vs. Macbook for 1 to 1
"Rob: Which HP models? The ones that meet Apple quality would be the EliteBook series like the Elitebook 8450p then you should not have that issue. If you buy the lower end then you will have those issues. The sad part is Dell, HP and Lenovo would…"

cprofitt commented on Bob Munson's blog post Ipad vs. Macbook for 1 to 1
"Bob: I never mentioned Windows -- just non-apple products. The one benefit you get with Apple is they do not sell low end products since they are not competing on price. If you buy a business class computer from HP, Dell or Lenovo you will be…"

cprofitt commented on Bob Munson's blog post Ipad vs. Macbook for 1 to 1
"Given the choices you had the MacBook is the only choice since the iPad 2 just does not meet the computing needs of students, ISTE 21st Century Skill or NETP 2010. However, if you were to consider non-Apple products you could save a bunch of money…"
