Flip Cam, blog, cell phone and projector all in one day - OMG!

In my German 3 class we recently finished a story we have been reading for the last three weeks. We have done several different types of

activities to facilitate the understanding of this story, and each

different activity has proven to have both its advantages, and

disadvantages. The unique thing about the activities I have done is

that each activity is something brand new that I have never tried

before. As any educator… Continue

5 things we can learn from our four-legged friends...

My wife and I have been married for a little under three years, and about a year ago we decided that we wanted

to grow our family. As we discussed the most typical way of growing a

family (a baby), we came to the conclusion that we should start small

before taking the big leap. Last summer we purchased an 8 pound, runt

of the litter, slightly discolored, adorable, and loving yellow lab

puppy.…

Never underestimate the power of a child...

I watched this video on TED: Ideas worth spreading (which I highly recommend) http://www.ted.com/,

and I have to say I was really intrigued by the topic. Every day at

school I get the opportunity to see students growing and

developing...some more than others, and some not enough. However

inconsistent their growth may be, one thing is for certain...the growth

and development of children can be summed up in one word - amazing! If

we… Continue

5 ways to share how you light the world on fire...

Last week I was speaking with a colleague of mine, and we were discussing activities we could do during one of our professional

development days. As we discussed potential ideas, we turned our focus

to activities that teachers could employ immediately. We wanted to

avoid activities that would require a lot of time and preparation in an

effort to provide our teachers with several very strong and powerful

strategies they could… Continue

Ten Commandments for Teachers on the Web



To prevent good teachers and other public figures from making bad posts,

I have created the following list. I hope it helps!



(Note: multiply the cautious attitude of this list by ten if you an un-tenured teacher.)



1. Thou shalt never publish anything you wouldn’t show your…

Reinventing yourself = survival...

My first official working day at school was today...I witnessed ups and downs, heard screams of joy, and whirlpools of pessimism and

discontent. As I thought more about the "happy" people, and the not so

happy people, I decided to concentrate on why the "happy" people were

happy. I soon realized there seemed to be a couple underlying factors

that lead to their happiness / enthusiasm toward the new school year.



I have to… Continue

Would anybody like some change?

As I often do, I speak with my wife about issues and theories related to

education. Though my wife is not a full time teacher, she does teach

as an adjunct professor at a local community college. Thus, I feel she

is knowledgeable and a worthy audience when discussing educationally

related topics.



Our most recent discussion revolved around how education needs to be

more effective and applicable to the ever changing needs of the student

population. There… Continue

Bring on the learning revolution!

A fabulous resource to educators is available, and the best part about it...it is free! Visit the website http://www.ted.com/ and watch videos about "ideas worth spreading." I chose this

particular video by Sir Ken Robinson because I feel Robinson makes a

wonderful point about education. When we talk about education we need

to forget about the evolution of the school system, but rather we… Continue

Do you speak their language?

How often do you hear students complaining about a teacher who told them to put their cell phone away, or turn their iPod off? If your school

is anything like my school, then I am sure you hear this on a daily

basis. Integrating technology into the classroom has been a hot topic

over the last several years, and as our society continues to embrace new

technological advances, Education 2.0 will hopefully continue to… Continue

What should busy administrators be reading (or watching)? - Leadership Day 2010

This is my first time participating in Leadership Day 2010, and I must say I am really excited to be a part of this fantastic movement. As

educators, I would argue we all need to be inspirational and progressive

leaders in our own right; however in education's current form we have

building administrators and central office administrators as our

leaders. Their jobs are extremely difficult, and I can honestly say

most people… Continue

Here is a copy of my original forum discussion post, plus a few updates:




If you are interested in emerging technologies, you might want to follow the link to the TechSparked website!

Using VoiceThread Technology in the College Classroom

Recently, I decided to make a VoiceThread for use in my 20th C. American Literature class. I started exploring different teaching strategies for my students when I realized that they were not very excited to read and respond in the traditional way. A VoiceThread is a wonderful tool which enables you, the instructor, to upload your media file (like a slide presentation), add your voice to it, and then allows the students to add their comments as well. The entire VT then can be seen by either… Continue

Web 2.0 and the Elementary Classroom Environment

So, I am still working on my Master's degree, but seriously focusing on how technology is changing our classrooms. Currently I am working on a paper about the effect that the inclusion of Web 2.0 technology has or is having on the traditional learning environment. I don't seem to be able to find any research articles about it, and I implore all of you to help search some out. If you have any links to articles where research has been done on this situation, either qualitative or quantatative… Continue

Away from technology for a day

Ok. This is might sound lame, and it won’t take you more than two seconds to guess that I am an English teacher. Today, my classes took a day away from the computers to do research. We actually used those bound paper piles in the library known as books. I will admit that, at times through the day, it was painful, mostly because the computers were within ten feet at all times, and the research might have been easier…

Web 2.0 vs. e-learning… reflection

Previous statement… Posted yesterday.



“…the proposed research will not focus on the concepts of e-learning since I consider a fundamental difference between the learning practices and methods within web 2.0 social networks and the instructional nature

of e-learning methods. The concept of e-learning will however be

discussed and partly analyzed to emphasize the unique nature or learning

within web 2.0 social networking…

Prezi: An Amazing Presentation Tool

Wow, I just stumbled on Prezi last night and decided to completely overhaul my 50+ slide PowerPoint presentation for today's teachers conference! When you see it, you just might be tempted especially since there's an education license for students and teachers offering free accounts with 500 MB limit.



I didn't know I needed a product like this, but Prezi was perfect for my presentation needs -- something about teaching with Web 2.0 tools -- because it allows me to zoom in and magnify… Continue
