With a premiere Technology-in-Education Conference, ISTE11, coming in a matter of days, I find myself comparing the Education conferences of old to the social media-influenced Education conferences of today. There is a world of differences, but, unfortunately, many of these differences have yet to be discovered by educators who have failed to recognize the juggernaut of social media. For many years I was a board member of NYSCATE, an educational technology group for New York educators. A… Continue

This is something I believe more people need to realize:
Influenza N1H1 is a deadly problem for humanity and the human race, and there are many things that people do not realize. For instance N1H1 is known to come in waves, and often it comes forth in multiple waves with in 18-months to two years, where the first two-waves of a new strain is not so deadly, and although noticed, does not wreak havoc on the… Continue

Just a little bit of advance notice, and some exciting news for me! If you are in or near Alberta, Canada next March then I will be speaking at the Teacher2Teacher conference on 18th and 19th March 2010.
I’m very excited about it since I don’t get to do too many conferences abroad plus I have a real soft spot to Canada (I’m actually heading to Calgary for my Summer holidays later this year). My Canadian friends have advised me to bring my thermals as it may be rather chilly in… Continue

I'm working on a presentation I'm giving at the eMINTS Winter Conference about Web 2.0 Tools. My focus is not what they are, but how to use them to encourage higher order thinking skills, engagement, reflection, and questioning. I finally finished up the agenda today, so now I've started working on putting the plan together. In the process, I decided to update my classroom wiki and found the plugins on pbwiki. Very cool!
I finally feel comfortable about my presentation, but have a long way… Continue

Cross post from my other blog :Scratch@MIT Conference
We just returned from presenting at the Scratch@MIT conference at MIT in Boson. If you are not familiar with Scratch, it is a new programming tool developed at MIT. Students imagine, create, and share games, animations and more. This past year we used the software in my fifth grade elementary technology classes. Also, students formed a club to continue to learn more ways to program using Scratch. I did not realize how important… Continue

I attended an eChicago conference last Friday where one of the presentations showed how youth in Skokie, Illinois are learning to use technology to become voices and news broadcasters for their community. Is this a school based activity? No. It's a library based activity.
This is an example of how teens in middle school and high school can learn to use art, video, computers, essays, blogs, theater and public speaking to get the attention of adults and other students, and to focus… Continue
