cprofitt replied to Kiwi Commons's discussion Internet Safety - Kids versus Teachers
"These are the same issues every generation has faced with some added twists... some good, some bad. It is much more likely that you will be 'caught' doing bad things (good), but it is much more likely that the punishment will be severe.…"

cprofitt replied to Zach Vander Veen's discussion From a Teacher's Perspective: Blackboard vs Moodle?
"I have to be honest that I do not have any experience with Blackboard, but I can not fathom a district adopting it if they already have Moodle in place. With the economy the way it is that just doesn't seem to make financial sense."

cprofitt replied to Elizabeth Davis's discussion Are you using Netbooks? Have you explored the possiblities? Please share your experience.
"Depends on the teacher and the net book chosen. I thinks the 10" screen models can be used by adults with out too much hand cramping and they have the power for what 90% of the users want to do and they can do 90% of what the remaining users…"

Amy Pugh replied to cprofitt's discussion Why not free and open source?
"Three years ago we significantly expanded the number of computers on the north side of campus. In order to save money we took the MS Office licenses we had available at the elementary level and applied them to the new computers. We then implemented…"

cprofitt replied to Tim Foster's discussion LMS systems in the group Instructional Technologists
"Sharepoint Strengths: It ties in with Active Directory and allows for a single user name and password to be used to gain entrance. Internal users (assuming AD) will not have to login due to Kerberos passing 'identity' to Sharepoint. It is…"

"Do you mind if I quote you on some of this for a presentation I am going to be giving this month?"

Cheri MacLeod replied to cprofitt's discussion Why not free and open source?
"I have often asked this question myself since I am a big fan of FOSS. At one institution we all had laptops and with administrative control were free to install anything we wanted. This was very liberating because if I saw anything I wanted to try…"

Rich White replied to cprofitt's discussion Why not free and open source?
"Its not just Education either ... the federal government spends BILLIONS every year on software licenses to MS, Oracle, and the like ... throw in what state governments spend on software licenses and we would be well on our way to paying for things…"

Tom Kennedy replied to cprofitt's discussion Why not free and open source?
"Actually, we are using OpenOffice in our elementary and middle schools, as well as other Open Source applications: Firefox, Wordpress, Moodle, and much of the server capability made available in Apple's X-Serv (which we use throughout our…"

Julie Baird replied to cprofitt's discussion Why not free and open source?
"You wrote, "Most teachers still are not techies and they weren't willing to play with anything that was even a little bit new. One has to wonder how books and pencils ever got adopted." This reminded me of a blog post about how…"

Blanca replied to cprofitt's discussion Why not free and open source?
