Inoculating children with the right culture and traditions is the only way to ensure that they are passed from one generation to the next and kept alive. Hobbies are an excellent tool to help children thrive in the knowledge of their heritage.
The love for art and theater is shared by those who have a passion for it. They are able to cross the line between those who can teach and those who can’t. Instilling a passion for… Continue

Kids are natural explorers. When left to their own devices, they can turn a cardboard box into a rocket ship exploring space, a fort to fend off attackers or a hundred other things. To a child, creativity comes naturally and the possibilities in the world are endless. Their answer to the age-old question "Why?" is a simple, “Why not?" Continue
Adults often become…

I also have been researching flipping my classroom and I'm super excited to dip my foot into it after our PSSA's are complete. I would like to preview the first math chapter my Pre-Algebra students will see next year in Algebra. There are going to be tons of questions and lots of adjustments once the flipping begins but I think trying this method out NOW will help me to decide if I want to go all out… Continue

Here's a quick and easy way to analyze how well you are applying AFL principles in your classroom:
If a parent were to ask his or her child how they were doing in your class, could the child give an accurate, detailed, and specific answer about his or her progress?
If you are regularly providing descriptive feedback to students… Continue

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

A few months ago when the HRD minister Kapil Sibal mentioned that only IIT JEE should not be responsible for entrance into the IITs, the premier institute of India, it was a time to rejoice for a lot of people. Every year lakhs of students sit for the cbse class 12 examination. Studying day in and day solving … Continue

Just a few thoughts - interested to find out ...
If you teach a language in Stage 5 and 6, what is the minimum number of students expected in your class so the class will run?
What are the restrictions/expectations put on you? How do you surmount these?
If you teach other subjects, what are the numbers expected? Does it sometimes prove difficult? Are you fed up teaching junior students year in year out?

To blog or not to blog? (With great apologies to William!)
Okay...waaay off base. I thought I had to create a blog at another site, so now I've got a blog here in Classroom 2.0 AND a blog at the following: www.anneashiker.blogspot.com
Share your outing adventures with me.

A collaborative, international art project to build a virtual ribbon around the world. The ribbon is made up of 6" pieces with a photo or drawing of why you love the earth, a statement of love, and pledges of personal action. We want to plant the subversive thought: do we need a new relationship with the planet? Contributions from 54 countries and 8,000 individuals--many from kids and classes. Takes about 2 minutes, and the site is loaded with ideas, photos students can use, and lesson plans.… Continue

I am now teaching a high school Cisco networking class. Multimedia is hard to find. Sometimes I create it myself, but I would also like some professional and polished stuff for the students. I ordered a Cisco training CD and I hope that works well, but anybody know of some descent free stuff out there?

The wiki's went better today. Started the class out with a group brainstorm:
what do we know about handwriting analysis?
Why is it important in forensics?
Who are the people that do handwriting analysis?
Can we find some case studies where handwriting analysis helped to solve crimes?
We then delegated who wanted to post to the wiki about which topic. As they posted I checked each page and gave feedback about each student's wiki post (check spelling, put this… Continue

I hope we are ready to move away from the old paradigm of teaching: stand and deliver. I hope that we are all ready to start a new collaborative, self-guided learning model. If you agree with this, I would love to hear your new ideas on what school should look like.
If you were in charge of starting your own school from scratch, what would it look like? Who would attend? What would students do?

Isn't technology wonderful? When it works. Ha! Here I thought I was a technology person. This class has really humbled me. Ning is way cool, but I'm still not too confident. Can't there just be one place everything can be synced to so you don't have to link to EVERYTHING? It seems like as soon as you learn about one cool thing and get going on it, you hear about something else. Whew. This ning seems like the best way to organize everything so far. Unless someone else has something else to… Continue

Carl and I concluded our first run of (WSI) Website Investigation: An Introduction to Information Forensics. This is a fully facilitated Moodle based online class.
We had a lot of fun and the participants were great. We also radically underestimated the amount of time the course would take. We figured 5 hours in one week. When we polled the class everyone reported taking far more time with each case study.
It doesn't surprise… Continue
