Digital Portfolios

This semester I have been granted extended leave to implement digital portfolios in our school. I have some assistance from Croyden Secondary College in Melbourne, Australia. This gave me the bases on a web site to start from but I have enhanced it. We are encouraging the students to report using the Victorian Essential Learning Standards http://vels.vcaa.vic.edu.au/ but have included a section on career development.

I'd like to publicly thank him for the insights and resources he presented. (More about Chris.)

Technological Advancement bridging curriculums

Recently, my Technology students with the use of Claymation, teamed up with the English and Language Arts students and animated Romeo and Juliet. It was a tremendous success. In all, there were over a dozen scenes with different facets of how the students interpreted the classic drama. Once the ELA students develop their scenes, with the use of construction paper and clay, the Technology students took pictures with the use of digital camaras. Once the… Continue

Open Office

I have not used Open Office a lot in the past, but have recently begun doing so. In using it on Windows, I am finding it to be very buggy. Is that others experience or is it just me?

Summer 2008

Well, I'm finally back in the groove of classroom 2.0. I'm working with the South Central Kansas Writing Project yet again this year and adapting to changes. We have decided to consolidate our technology applications and will be using a ning network instead of a separate site for wikis, blogs and photos. This way I will become more familiar with the technology and be more of a proponent of its use in the classroom.

I am also working for a short time for our Extended School Year… Continue
