Biology Educators Network Gains Partnership

Posted on October 2, 2010 at 9:30pm 0 Comments

A couple of years ago a few of my digital friends and I brought this space to life: The Synapse. A week later I wrote about it here. The site derives its origin directly from a frustrating discussion in the Twittersphere between biology… Continue

When The Classroom Lacks Walls

Posted on May 1, 2010 at 10:55am 0 Comments

How do you see to it that your classroom studies are authentic? I'm a fan of immersion. For the past decade my Midwestern Marine Biology class has included a week long field study to the coral reefs and mangrove communities of either The Bahamas or the Florida Keys. This field study is conducted with chartered sailing yachts as a base of operations. This allows the maximum amount of time on and in the water. Many of my students make their first trip to any ocean as a member of this… Continue

The Extended Value of Classroom Networks

An interesting thing happened on the way home from Educon 2.2 last Sunday night. Walking through the terminal and against my exhaustion, I reflexively checked my mail. Lazy eyes lifted open, I flicked my thumb scrolling… trolling for a demand of action. I’m hyper-connected. I pay for it. And yet, I’m a better teacher and leader because of it. This is the sort of thing that I am betting many folks in this…

The problem

According to NOAA, over half of the population of the United States lives within 50 miles of the coastline. This trend holds up over the vast majority of the world, and many countries in East Asia show an even greater build… Continue

Feedback on Pillars of Technology Integration

Posted on July 13, 2009 at 8:00am 0 Comments

What are the key elements required for a transformation of teaching and learning through the use of technology? There are obviously many reasonable ways to look at this. From what position do you view this issue? Are you a teacher, instructional coach, building principal, technology facilitator, director of technology, chief administrative officer of some flavor, superintendent, parent, or student? For you, this issue will likely run through the… Continue

Hi Sean,

With your interest in Emerging Technology, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service. Here’s a public class recording conducted by Nellie Deutsch on Technology Integration.

Hi Sean,
I last 'spoke' to you in December and had never seen a Wiki. My students and I jumped in with both feet and haven't looked back. The students are very excited to have a real audience. Please take a look at what they've created so far. RPG Maker XP Help. We would appreciate any feedback you have. Currently the wiki is protected, so you'll have to either email me your feedback or give it through Classroom 2.0.

Hi Sean,
Would like to know more about how you're using social networks with students. Have time for a phone/skype chat?

Thank you for all of your input on Blogs Discussions & Wikis. I've only just found Classroom 2.0, and despite having been a tech teacher for the last 10 years am only just beginning to venture into the features that it offers. I really liked what you had to say about sitting down and watching the students. Thanks for taking the time. I'll definitely be checking out your recommended sites.

For about 12 years I was a tech bandwagon fanatic. I presented in my district, state, and at 5 times at NECC. I am a great presenter, if I do say so myself--but about 4 years ago I threw in the towel.

I decided I'd learned enough to keep my own students active, engaged and learning with technology to last me a lifetime (or until I retire--soon). I saw no changes in my district so I gave up!! I'm an advocate of giving the equipment and training to those who will use it and the rest be damned!! haha! Good luck with your projects,

You can see all we've done lately here--

Thanks for the reply and the links to your site. Awesome!
As to my stimulus - I taught forever at the same school, became stifled by admin at every turn, so I transferred to the school in our county with the lowest scores on state tests & NCLB measures. These children are so needy in every way, and I have a principal who believes in me & my wild ideas. These students need to be taught how to learn, and I believe improving my use of instructional technology is the answer. And I won't have to do it by myself,,,by creating my personal learning network I have a huge team!

Not much is happening in my district of 30,000 kids--at least K-6. I don't know what goes on in MS and HS tech-wise. Last week we did our first video conference and we were the SECOND in the district!! Sad.
