Video Games: Friend or Foe

Posted on September 22, 2007 at 7:37am 0 Comments

I little background here. I am 35 years old and I have grown up playing video games. I have had them all from PONG to Playstation to the Wii. I will always enjoy playing video games and am not ashamed of it. My 4 year old son also love playing video games (we do curb him playing time of course) and he is quite good at them. He is restricted to the Disney genre for obvious reasons and he plays the interactive learning computer games as well. He has gotten quite good at these games and is very… Continue

I have known about Ning for a while now and I have been a member of a couple different forums, Classroom 2.0 being one of them, but it has taken me a long time to set up my page and get into the discussions. I think my first impression of Ning was that it was very "busy" and I couldn't decide if it was the same or better than keeping a personal blog. I finally got around to setting this up and getting into the discussions and I am sad that it took me so long. A personal blog is great and it has… Continue

Hi Brad. I was wondering if your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some other educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!

Hello,

I'm sending out messages to everyone I know right now, and this virtual Ning network is no exception. My name is Andy Pethan. I am a 21 year old student from Olin College of Engineering. I am a part of a group of 6 Olin students (near Boston) who is taking a year off to pursue our interests in education, entrepreneurship, design and technology, bringing us to the logical project of a business that designs collaborative software for schools! I found you in a search for "middle school", and since our project is specific to middle schools, I thought you might be interested. Our project 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,
Andy Pethan

From now on all parent complaints go directly to your extension and I will blame everything that goes wrong on you. Oh wait I do that already too- I need to go back to my book...I am reading with Mrs. Hartman's class and I need to blog with them tomorrow.

Brad,

Per your comment on Marian's post about web 2.0 for administrators, could you possibly share your district's policy with me or send me a link? I am in East Tennessee, and our system's web publishing policy is outdated and only allows web content created by teachers using the approved program (Contribute) and housed on local servers.

I have the ear of one school board member, who is willing to work with me on revising the policy to make accommodations for 21st century tools (of course, those are still limited by what the filters don't block). But it's a start!

I am looking for examples of progressive web policies/procedures. Any insights you provide will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Brad,
Love the Book video. Do you know the Monty Python sketches the "Philosophers' World Cup" (on YouTube) and "Novel Writing from Dorset" (A cricket style commentary on Thomas Hardy writing 'The Return of the Native', Don't know if that's on YouTube)
Cheers
Ian

Pretty ironic choosing the 80's video game theme for the page. These are the games I grew up n and still have a soft spot in my heart for. In fact, I have successfully turned my four year old on to the "old" games and he likes them better than some of the new ones.
