Saturday Elluminate Session on Skype

Posted on February 14, 2009 at 11:26am 0 Comments

Today was the first time I participated in the Classroom 2.0 Saturday Elluminate session, and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to follow along. I have used skype for personal reasons and have always thought that it would be an amazing tool to use in the classroom but never knew where to get more information on how to make it work or who to connect to.



My hope is that I will be able to connect to a few middle years classes who are interested in communicating with a… Continue

Interactive Whiteboards in the Classroom

Posted on August 31, 2007 at 9:58am 2 Comments

I am one of the fortunate teachers who has been using a SMART Board in my classroom for a few years now, and I am always asked, "Where do you come up with such interesting ideas? Where do I start looking for some ideas for my classes?" One site that I recommend and check on a regular basis is the SMARTBoard Lessons Podcast. Joan Badger and Ben Hazzard are the hosts of the informative podcast and each week, they have great tips and lessons. Check it out, I know you will get hooked on this… Continue

Overload !

Posted on August 16, 2007 at 1:16pm 0 Comments

I am in overload. I haven't been faithful to my bloglines account and I have a lof of catching up to do.

Since joining classroom 2.0, I have been introduced to so many ideas I feel very overwhelmed. I tend to loose track of time, clicking here and there, following the fantastic links posted on various blogs......I understand how my students can get "lost in the web."



My goal with this blog is to create an opportunity for teachers to communicate and learn about new technologies… Continue

How to pick a good password

Posted on August 13, 2007 at 9:31pm 0 Comments

'Tis the season - time to think again of passwords. Here are some great tips from Dave Warlick...

  • must have at least six characters
  • must not appear in any dictionary
  • must contain both lowercase and uppercase alphabetic characters
  • must contain a number
  • should contain non-alphanumeric characters such as !, #, $, %, ^, &, *, (, ), etc.

Hi,

I'm sending out messages to everyone I know right now, and this classroom20 network is no exception. (I've also sent this out on other Ning networks you may be a part of.) My name is Alyshia Olsen; I am a 20 year old college student from Olin College of Engineering. I am a part of a group of 6 Olin College students (we're in Needham, MA, and engineering students) who has taken a year off to work on an education related project. Since you are in the 'connecting content and technology' group, I thought you might be interested! Our project is called AlightLearning, and this is our "short" project description:

Under the assumption that within ten years, the landscape of modern education will have fully integrated what we now define as new classroom media: video, online collaboration, open source curriculum and other web tools, 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. Our goal is to have our free software at a pilot middle school by April 15th, 2009, continuing to develop and coordinate with our users to create a product that other schools want to pilot and use at their schools, while allowing individual teachers to implement this tool in their own classroom.

Our project, titled Alight Learning, 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.

Feel free to email me back, check out alightlearning.com, anything you like!

Thanks,

Alyshia Olsen

Hi -- 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!!!!
