I am a middle school teacher who is now seconded to our district office as a technology mentor. My job now is to work with teachers throughout our district who want to integrate technology into their lessons. It is the most amazing job since I see so much change everyday!

Is the 21st Century now?

Posted on April 29, 2007 at 7:42pm 0 Comments

I have read everything I can possibly get a hold of on Web 2.0 and integrating technology into education. I have attended conferences, held PD sessions for teachers and spoke to so many people I have lost count. What's the problem then? The pace of educational change seems to be so slow compared to technological change. I am beginning to wonder if, inside the walls of schools, the 21st century is really here?

But, I see the future of education. I read the blogs and listen to the…

Join Classroom 2.0

Hi Ted -- I'd like to invite you to join a Classroom 2.0 group called Canadians Mashup. I'm trying to build a network of Canadian educators and bloggers. No discussions yet. I'm just starting out by trying to find where everyone lives and what they teach. If you're interested, please add me as a colleague as well.

If you add yourself to the map, please include a name or a photo of some sort. There seem to be a lot of unidentified people from unidentified places and the map is getting stuck on for some reason. The problem is that I can't tell from the members’ list which anonymous hits are real people and which were just false starts. The company does not differentiate members unless there is a picture or a name. Location only is not enough to help me know which entries are not real ones. THANKS!!!!

Hello,

I'm sending out messages to everyone I know right now, and this virtual Ning network is no exception. My name is Evan Morikawa. I am a 20 year old student from Olin College of Engineering (near Boston). I am a part of a group of six Olin students who are taking a year off to pursue interests in education, entrepreneurship, design and technology, which brought us to the logical project of a business that designs collaborative software for schools! I found you in a search for "middle school" on Classroom2.0, and since our project is specific to middle schools and uses new learning technology, I thought you might be interested. Our company is called AlightLearning, and this is our "short" project description:

We are working under the assumption that within ten years, the landscape of modern education will have fully integrated what we now define as new classroom media and tools: video, online collaboration, open source curriculum, and internet-based software. We hope to pioneer a web software tool that acts as a platform for this new media, bringing the power of the web and its tools to students, teachers and parents in a secure, comfortable and innovative environment. More importantly, and unlike many of our competitors, our software will empower teachers to better integrate higher level thinking skills, individualized learning, goal setting, reflection, and effective feedback and evaluation. Our goal is to have our free software at a pilot middle school by April 15th, 2008, continuing to develop and coordinate with our users to create a product that other schools and individual teachers will want to use to improve their students' learning in and out of the classroom.

Our team is currently trying to win an idea competition on Ideablob.com You can find us at http://ideablob.com/3975. We would love your support in the form of a vote within the next couple days, but more importantly we'd love your feedback and comments. Our description on Ideablob is short, and even the one above hardly gets at many of the issues we would like to take a stab at solving, but at least it's a start. Note that winning this contest will raise $10,000, a large and useful sum of money for a web-based company running on “sweat equity” and minimal costs.

Feel free to email me back, post on my profile, check out alightlearning.com, or do anything you like!

Thanks,
Evan Morikawa
