Wiki Project - First day, part 1

Low-grade panic pretty well described my mood over the last few days.

My plan was to start a new project with my classes today. The idea was to create a wiki about Ancient Rome. Students would pretend to be newspaper reporters, and compose their stories on thew wiki.

The panic came from, first of all, the sheer size of the task of setting up the wiki pages for each assignment. I have 35 or so assignments, and each needs it's own page (of course, I didn't discover Wikispace's… Continue

There's truth in the sales adage ... "When need meets passion, sparks fly!"

Thus, my chief aim in designing THE FUNANCHILL TIMES™ material parked on a private (for now at least) is to engage the interest of notoriously "shy" students (at least about speaking English) through their "loves".

For example, more than anything, boys (of all ages) love delicious food, so I've found one idea that works ... "express tickets" into the school caf (it offers…

The Intel Presentation on the Rise of the 3D Internet

ICT in Education

I am looking for information on how the learners can benefit from using the Internet. I need that information to write chapter 4 of my research. I have discovered that most schools in my district do not have Internet including my own school. Now I need literature that can support that Internet is important for learners in today's classroom.

Managing the New Monsters

We're into the first real week of the Monsters Project and some new teachers have been attracted this year. I emphacize that this is a "starter" project for teachers wanting to get involved with global education. I am adding a wiki to to the project this year - it has been basically web-based in the past, that is, participants send me their contributions or links and I add them to the project web site. The wiki will be an experiment to see who wants to try it, to use it to add content and share… Continue

Time Management Systems for students

Hey folks,

I'm looking into offering some sort of online time management for students that allows them set priorities, keep track of assignments, and look at calendars. I have been exploring Airset, which seems promising. What's the most important to me is that the program helps kids set priorities rather than functioning as a mere list of work they need to do. Any suggestions?

Celebrate Librarian Appreciation Day

Today is a day which we should be showing our appreciation for those people who work so hard finding resources and helping our students to meet the demands of the various assignments teachers assign. I’d

kinds of great insights and links to various informative sights.

Giddy about learning

(Cross posted at

I feel like a giddy schoolgirl this morning–just having so much fun interacting with other educators around the world who are also giddy about what they are doing.

Blogging and Reverse Research

By Alix E. Peshette

Cross-posted from Ed Tech Gold Rush

One of the benefits of my position as a technology training specialist for a school district is that I get to indulge my passion for research. When I say research, I’m not talking about facts and figures, case studies and long-term research projects. I love to research the how-to’s, what’s new and…

Smile - You're 'Out of the Box!'

This note went out from a teacher at one of my project schools to another one this past Friday:

"To realize what happened with the kids during this project is awesome. Now I understand - the light has dawned. I did less work and kids did more work without complaining and learned more than I would have ever dreamed possible - on so many levels. Okay; now I am hooked - teach me how to use this stuff."

I was so lucky to see this unfold in her classes on Thursday. Students (Junior… Continue
