Entrada nº1: Mis experiencias en Sevilla el primer semana.

Mis primeras días en España fueron muy duros porque no había dormido y Fran nos olvidó en el metro. Además tenía caminar por todo Madrid. Pero, tenía un buen tiempo con Fran. Pero, cuando llegamos en Sevilla, finalmente llegamos a dormir y ducharte. La cultura de España es muy diferente. La comida es diferente y las personas, pero todo en todos me gusta España. Ayer, Emma y yo fuimos a asociación Tal Como Eres por nuestra aprendizaje…

Mis primeros días en España

No tenía expectaciones cuando hacía llegado en el aeropuerto de Madrid. He visitado España antes, pero hace tres años y solamente por un día. Llegue en Sevilla y busque Francesca y nos maletas. Tomemos un autobús a Hotel Bécquer y puse ver los calles bonitas. Todo del ciudad es increíble; el rio, los edificios antiguos, los arboles de palmas, los flores, los restaurantes, la lengua y por supuesto la gente.


Hasta aquí, toda la gente son o muy simpático o muy maleducado. A…

Summary Week 6

There were no Tech Explorations this week.. which I must say, was a blessing! WebQuests are much more complicated than I originally thought, and the extra time was much appreciated. After doing much research and exploring in the WebQuest world, there was much to take in! Though they may look easy and like lots of fun for the students, there is a lot of time and attention to detail to making these quests.…

Authentic Learning Reflection

Learning-by-doing is generally considered the most effective way to learn. The Internet and a variety of emerging communication, visualization, and simulation technologies now make it possible to offer students authentic learning experiences ranging from experimentation to real-world problem solving.  Authentic learning typically focuses on real-world, complex problems and their solutions, using role-playing exercises, problem-based activities, case studies, and participation in virtual…

Conflict a Dirty Word?

Understanding conflict, power, and the dynamic results that occur when conflict takes place due to power or the perceived lack thereof is an important aspect that needs to be understood in order to improve functionality inside an organizational culture.  To understand conflict and learn to value it, a leader and those within the organization must understand what conflict is and the healthy response to conflict that is needed in order to produce positive results from this perceived negative…

Technology in the classroom

I have used Livescribe pen and pebble program to create lessons for the class and post it in the Moodle. This makes it easy for the students because they don't have to carry around paper handouts. I have also created instructional videos for the class which they can watch many times at their own pace. it is another tool for differentiated instruction.

 In our semi-humongous Michigan school district we've struggled with  content onto our iPads 

One of our principals asked how he could get 32 copies of a the book "How to Create a Culture of Achievement in your school and classroom" onto his teacher's iPads.

He could have bought the book from ASCD  Press for $27.95.  but he  wanted to know how he could put the $18.95 Kindle book on the ipads instead.

The answer was Amazon…

Managing your iPads with Apple Configurator

For the past year and a half I have been using Apple configurator to manage our district's iPads.

  • Put links to web sites on the iPad desktop (these are called webclips)
  • Set policies for the iPads (these are called profiles)
  • Do…
