Hannibal Kids View of Pakistan

I’ve been using the word globalization and doing international kid

projects for a long time. It was just recently that the “realness” of

the so called flat world struck me — and my students. Benazir Bhutto

was killed in Pakistan - and the significance was enhanced because my

students and I had been engaged with a class from Karachi for the past

six months, Ms. Elahi’s grade 5. As we had shared details about

culture, videos, poetry, and worked together in the… Continue

Au Revoir 2007, Bonjour 2008 ! Good Bye 2007, Hello 2008 ! OUR EUROPEAN CULTURAL DIVERSITY IS OUR WEALTH ;-)

This is a kind critical analysis of Classroom 2.0 Network's americanocentrism and a charge against standardization of the world by the exclusive use of english language...

Rep.), Elena (Romania), Vincenzina (Italia) and Józef

(Poland), we send you our best wishes for the New Year and Long…

The World is Watching!

I am a regular education classroom teacher, and I’m trying to engage the students. By using technology and media we have the opportunity to have our produced content actually meet an interactive audience. So off we went. This particular class has “bought into” their education more than others and I wondered why. I wondered, what makes this class more responsive learners? Even though I have integrated a lot of media and technology over the years, this is the first year I have made our… Continue

And now a word from my favorite playwright:

"O! This learning, what a thing it is."

William Shakespeare, The Taming of the Shrew, 1597

It is true, I am addicted to learning, and I don't want to use a twelve-step group to get rid of it *:-) I hope to remain addicted.

Have fun *:-)

My top 10 web 2.0 sites for 2007

Being an absolute beginner at web 2.0, I started in June, 2007. So, I am going to reflect on the 10 web 2.0 sites that I have enjoyed using most this year.

Mine are…

Why Should We Learn By Doing? - Schools competing for students imaginations

My Observations:

The Kids got a Wii this Christmas - so we un-boxed and set it up. The graphics are not what PS3 and XBox has to offer - but the interface

The kinetic/movement method to complete game tasks is amazingly powerful I have observed - Watching kids learn is an amazing… Continue
