8th Grade Collaboration

Hello my Classroom 2.0 friends.  Currently teaching 8th grade technology in New Hampshire.   Looking for other 8th grade classrooms that would like to collaborate or form projects around a three to five week time frame each quarter.  My quarter began in September and will end at the end of Nov.  I am working on curriculum integration and would love to discuss possibilities of blogging, wikis or open projects of a web 2.0 nature with other like minded 21st century teachers around the world. …

Let's keep our focus...

I recently read a blog post by @johntspencer titled "Techno-Shame." John eloquently explains why he has removed most 21st century technology blogs from his feeder. I will be taking a line directly from John's post because I don't believe I could say it any better...."Over time, I've dropped most of… Continue

Technology in schools...25 students sound off!

We all live in a world that is rapidly changing, and in particular, the advancements associated with technology. As society evolves and changes, schools are coming under increasing pressure to stay with the times. So often we hear that technology is a silver bullet in education, but we must remember that technology is merely a tool. A tool in the hands of a sub-par educator will continue to yield a sub-par education, while a tool in the hands of a great educator will only enhance and aid…

Technology that augments the use of technology by educators...

I recently had a discussion with a friend about the relative merits and demerits of technology, and before you jump in to claim that the pros outweigh the cons, let me iterate that the topic under debate was the value of (or lack of it) technology for those who are either scared to use technology or have no clue about it. The tech savvy may find this hard to understand, but there are still those who refuse to embrace technology or do so under considerable duress.

There’s no doubt that…

How do we define learning...?

I will start this post off by saying you will not find any answers here.

 At best you might be more confused than when you started.  This year

has been the year of change for my German students and myself.  We have

been pushing the envelope when it comes to technology integration in a

foreign language class.  Overall, I can honestly say things have been

going quite well.  Students seem to be actively engaged and interested,

and most importantly they have taken… Continue

Evolution Of The Web And Technology In Education

The Full Article From : The Happy Developer

 

The first incarnation of the web was composed of static websites that linked to each other and search engines to help you find sites of interest. Web 2.0 brought a social element to the web, with users sharing, commenting, and interacting through sites such as YouTube, Facebook, and Flickr. The future web, the "semantic…

The first step toward a digital portfolio...

My German 3 students are doing a lot of things they have never done in school before. They are taking part in an experiment of sorts...an

experiment aimed at increasing student interest and engagement levels

through the use of technology. Most importantly, I am learning right

along side each and every student of mine. Together, we are stepping

outside of our comfort zones with the hope of growing and learning

through sharing… Continue

Reflections of a PD representative - try not to take it personally...

I typically have a clear and well-thought out purpose for each blog post, however for this blog post I am going to simply reflect on today's

professional development session. I lead a PD session about 7 weeks

ago for all of the staff members at my high school on social media and

technology integration, and today's session was an extension of the

previous session for any teachers interested. We asked each staff

member to choose… Continue

5 ways to spread the power of Twitter as a PD tool...

This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the EdcampKC technology conference in Kansas City, MO. This was my first

"unconference," which basically means the entire conference was

participant-driven and each session was presented by someone who was

actually attending the conference. There was a big board set up in the

main room, and before the conference officially started any person

interested in presenting was able to… Continue

Why Twitter should be a part of your PLN...

If somebody asked me about the last 6 months of my life, I would respond

by saying something like this; the past 6 months have been extremely

challenging, but yet at the same time I can say with little hesitation

that I have grown more as an educator in the last 6 months than in any

other time period in my life.



The world in which we live is changing faster than anyone could ever

imagine, and because of this the educational system must evolve and… Continue
