My tech lesson when the internet is down

You have a great lesson planned for today, and the internet is down. Your supervisor is lurking in the doorway, you can just smell the observation coming. What do you do?

You teach your kids how to create hyperlinks with just PowerPoint or Google Slides!

Here’s my plan.

Begin the lesson with having the students create the first slide, a “Table of Contents” sort of slide. Mine looks like this.…

Information Overload!

I have been looking at digital tools to help students locate information and present information. This got me thinking about the information overload that I see many of my students experience. There is so much available that often the student just takes the first thing they can find as being fact, rather than sift through all the info to verify the facts. I remember in high school and in college (just on the cusp of the Internet generation), we had to have several sources for a paper. I…

Video and Links about Google TV: Another Flavor of Android - "Google TV brings everything you love about the web to your television"




Thought: If Google TV will bring easy access to the Internet to our large flat-panel HD TV's, it just might mean that the large HD TVs will replace ordinary televisions and shadow-casting interactive…

Spring Break Safety

Spring Break is right around the corner (some have already began their mid-season vacations) and Kiwi put together a list of tips and faux pas for both students and parents to consider during their holiday. A simple Google search on 'Spring Break' will provide a myriad of pictures displaying both young guys and girls, half naked and doing things that I am sure most teachers and parents would not approve of. Of course not all kids and teens will engage in the typical MTV type Spring Break, but… Continue

School Allegedly Used Webcams to Spy on Students - Is this Unethical?

A school district in Pennsylvania is in a bit of trouble after allegedly using webcams on school laptops to monitor their students in and outside of school using spy software. The students and parents were uninformed about the use of this software and discovered it only after one student was called to his principal's office for bad behavior in his home. The principal then used a picture taken with the spy software to prove his case.



While the school district… Continue

Pheobe Prince Commits Suicide Because of Cyber Bullying

In the last few weeks, I have come across a slew of cyber bullying cases, each becoming more serious than the last. But it was the story of a young girl named Phoebe Prince that really hit home.

Phoebe Prince, 15, committed suicide due to what reports are saying was a case of cyber bullying. The young teen was victim to harassing Internet and text messages from alleged older ‘mean girls’ who were unhappy…

Back again, with link to posts about interesting and emerging technologies....

I've been busy for the past two months- my dad had complications from surgery and was in the ICU for quite a while, and now I am catching up with work.



At any rate, I thought I'd link to some of my recent blog posts:

Avatars Used to Translate Text and Speech into Sign Language for the Deaf - By Lance Winslow

By Lance Winslow



You know those cute little characters you pick to represent you on Internet forums and Blogs, well imagine a dynamic Avatar that works with speech recognition software and coverts it to sign language? A deaf person could attend Professor Lectures, Speeches or listen in on a group discussion without having to read lips.

NETBOOK TIME

Well, as all of you in Victoria probably already know, 1:1 computing is here, in the form of the government's Netbook trial. My school happens to be one of the 300 and something that have been chosen to participate and as the head of IT in the school I can honestly say I am excited, to say the least.

I have sussed out the software package and reviewed the computers themselves and I think this may be a big coup for those of us who believe the future is not the future any more, but the now.… Continue
