1:1 Sooner than Later? or How much will the "$100 laptop" cost in the US?

Perhaps it won't be so long before every student in our schools has a
tool they can use to connect with, well, anything they want. Check it out.

iPod iQuiz

Technically this doesn't fit with Classroom 2.0, but I think it rocks.



One of the games that comes standard on the iPod is Music Quiz. It will randomly play a part of a song you have loaded on your iPod and give

you a list of 4 songs. You have to pick the correct song in the

shortest amount of time.



Just the other day, Apple released iQuiz. Which does the same thing, but with updated graphics. And now today, iQuizMaker… Continue

Online image editors

Picnik Logo With Adobe's announcement last week of it's intention to produce a scaled down web-version of PhotoShop I thought I'd have a look at a couple of examples of what is out there already. Picnik and Snipshot a couple of web2.0 online image editors I've come across. Both of these apps have interfaces that are very…

KSDE Conference

I'm spending today and tomorrow and the KSDE State Conference in Wichita. Wesley Fryer did a great session today revolving around web 2.0 issues - cyberbullying, blogging, social networking and the issues those present to schools.
One comment he made that really sums up what we're trying to do if we are traching kids the 21st century skills they truly need: How do we teach kids to be their own filter?

Responses to Gates and Broad $60M to push "educational reform"

Eli Broad and Bill Gates plan to spend $60 Million

Here's the agenda:

  • National standardized curriculum
  • Longer school day
  • Merit pay
There are some great comments about this on the web:

Game design - classroom 2.0 isn't just about the web...

Nate Stearns read my bio here about being a game designer in a previous life and asked me some questions about that. We had a nice email discussion, but it seemed like a good subject and I'm never one to waste good content!



I've posted some resources for educators interested in game design at the Genyes blog. Game design is a terrific activity for students. It requires critical thinking,… Continue

Flickr OK?

Just a random question maybe someone can take 10 seconds and answer.

I am starting my first 2.0 project, and my 4th grade students will be recording themselves reading poetry. I am going to use Microsoft Photostory to add some images. Is Flickr a safe place to get images? It seems like we could download from their creative commons section. From my own browsing, there doesn't seem to be any content that is inappropriate, but I want to be sure. I don't want to mess up my first…

School 2.0 vs. Clear National Trends?

The question is: how do national trends we recognize in education policy interact with the (r)evolution we envision for schooling?



This post has been forming in my head for a while now.



Really, it's inception came about because I read Tough Choices at about the same time I began to involve myself in the school 2.0 conversation. I did that by:

  1. beginning my exploration of the blogosphere,…

My entry to Classroom 2.0

I mostly blog through my blog at http://blog.hintonweb.com, but I thought I should at least add an entry here and perhaps I will blog some as well. I have enjoyed being part of the community thus far. I'm cautiously optimistic as to what can come of it. There seem to be some really great, smart people here and so hopefully we'll be able to taken advantage of that synergy. I'm been most interested by some of Kevin Jarrett's stuff thus far and have also… Continue

Not Much of a Blogger

If I had a dime every time.....



My last post What will we do with these LD teachers? has brought a few comments that have me thinking, again, about technology use. When I first wrote my piece, I was really saying it tongue-in-cheek in a response to something I read on a discussion forum

at Ning that read:

I would argue that time is NOT the issue. We all have the same…

Classroom 2.0 technonlogies

Here at my school we have a blank slate, so to speak, in regards to technology. We are trying to put together a "Wish List" of technology in our classroom. I am a big thinker but I also know that there are a lot of even "Bigger Thinkers" here. I know we won't get everything on the wish list but I don't want to miss anything. Please help me compile a list of the most "cutting edge" technology that has, or could have, an applied use in a Project Based Classroom for teachers and students. What…

Well, I am in the process of inviting friends and just trying to figure out how to fit this one into things.

I be adding more things the next few days, so keep an on on me!!!

The Web 2.0 and School 2.0 Connection

I gave the keynote address to the CVCUE meeting

in Fresno this past Saturday, and prepared a presentation on why Web

2.0 is going to be so important to education. When I was driving home I

made a connection that I hadn't fully made before: that the transition

between Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 is very similar, if not almost… Continue

Reflecting on Educational Technologies

The past couple of weeks have been a study in contrast and application. I've been working with a teacher-student teacher team conducting research in a public school head start classroom. I've watched my student teacher work with 3, 4, and 5-year olds. These preschoolers are using Fischer-Price digital cameras to identify patterns in nature, and within the classroom. These students are in the morning session. Afternoon session pre-schoolers are learning the same content but without the use of… Continue

Here I am!

Thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a tech coordinator for a middle school. I'm trying to juggle podcasting, blogging and wiki-ing with the "old" technologies like PowerPoint, video-creating and (ho hum) word processing (in two different languages - we're a bilingual school). Like all of you, I find it overwhelming and incredibly intoxicating at the same time.



Right now my personal interest is focused on presentations that I'm making at a national conference this summer: podcasting,… Continue
