G'day Guys :-)
I just stumbled across this site yesterday whilst researching 21st Century educational transformation, and I must say I'm pretty impressed! What a great idea. It's awesome to see a collaborative network of like-minded folks who are striving to push education forward. Hopefully this mentality will spread across Australia as well!
Thanks Steve and Art Goddess for the welcome. I was only here 5 minutes and you wanted to be my friend already… Continue

And the hits just keep on coming! Thanks to Jim Gates, for keeping me posted on this update. I really like SlideShare
, but my only knock against it was the lack of audio. I'd seen other presentations online with separate mp3 feeds associated with them, but they always require you to pace through the slides yourself, based on verbal cues from the presenter.
Thanks to this update, you can create your presentation, create a separate mp3 file,…

I did not attend NECC 07 in Atlanta but I have been following it through blog posts, podcasts etc. It was so interesting to hear about the Blog Cafe and the skype backchannel. I love the idea and have even heard of its use in the classroom. Just wondering what people are thinking about this new way of participating.

I was born and grew up close to where I live now near Ottawa,
Canada, but have traveled to nearly 40 countries (most of Europe, Oz,
NZ, a number of Pacific Islands) and over much of North America and
lived for 12 years in southern Europe.
much of my life, I was in the corporate world, creating and running
companies. I was responsible for many training ventures in that world, which I left behind in 1999. Since then, I have spent an
ever-increasing amount of… Continue

Ok, so if you were in my presentation Project Based Learning: Portals into the 21st Century

There were some questions you all wanted me to answer, and I didn't really get a chance… Continue

I want to use technolgy efficiently and effectively in my classroom. Keeping in mind that I have only 3.5 hours of actual academic teaching time, what are some ideas that you have tried and love. We study immigration, Aztecs, electricity, trees, and my favorite unit, space. Any ideas?

One of the most important strategies to reach African American young children is to provide appropiate instruction for these children and let them know that you care.

I have been doing a lot of reading and research over the summer to help guide me in a new direction for my teaching this next school year. Literacy with ICT, Peer Coaching, blogging, podcasting, Web 2.0 - what will all this mean to the teachers in my division? How can I model effective and easy ways to use technology for those who think they are interested in trying something new?
My teaching focus will be more group collaboration within the classroom as well as expanding out to other… Continue

A blog is a web-based journal, a personal website. A blog offers features that make it particularly useful to educators, for their informality and ease of use.

Chemistry teachers are a wonderful breed of human.....who teach better than anyone else. Whatever method or lab we use to teach is the best. After a few years of always being right along with other Chemistry teachers who are always right while not doing the same thing I realized that we may all be right; but differently. I'm attempting to celebrate our differences by finding out how you teach, dimensional analysis, writing/naming compounds, balancing equations, stoichiometry, redox, etc. Do you… Continue

Just subscribed to Gliffy for the princely sum of $20US and am very impressed with this online concept mapping application.
I have been looking for a low cost alternative to Inspiration and have experimented with a number of them, and found Cmap to be excellent, and free.
However Gliffy has a significant advantage in being an online application with very good tools is a very polished product. There is a collaborate function… Continue

I work with Tracy Weeks in Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools. Tracy issued an invitation to our department to dive into this new technology and gather information about how students engage with changing technologies. As a curriculum specialist, I feel it is important to experience the world of our students so I can guide teachers to provide learning situations that are real for our students. I appreciate having colleagues that are willing to join in the research.

Thanks to Greg Farr for pointing me to this site. I have invited a bunch of people from my district to join. I am hoping we can take this social networking journey together and that be learning what it means to be a part of a social network, we can come to better understand:
- Why our students like being in them
- How they might be used in schools
- How they might transform education
I am so excited!

I just finished a summer coursee in Web 2.0 technology and I have to say that I find it very exciting. There is so much information but I am trying to narrow down a couple of ideas to use in m math classes. Has anyone out there used blogging an a math class? Or any class for that maatter?I have found a couple of classes which use it and I'm intrigued. My students love to use messenger, facebook etc so it's not really a big step to move to blogging, it's just that they would have something… Continue
