Barriers to Personalized Learning in Schools

At the CoSN conference in March 2008, I led a birds of a feather discussion about Long Tail Learning. Our discussion hit on trust, student privacy, and school district liability. We came up with a list of barriers/challenges:

# The classroom model of traditional education: 1 teacher, 25-30 students

# The ability for students to self… Continue

Classroom Decor

Has anyone experimented with the physical classroom environment to increase student learning and interest in the content? If school was more like Starbucks, would students learn more? If I could create a comfortable, inviting space, would the students be more likely to learn or goof off? Everything I've looked at is mostly for elementary-age students and doesn't even consider the fact that we are dealing with real human beings who may not enjoy sitting in a cold, hard chair for a 90-minute… Continue

Disaster Planning and the Role of Technology

Last October, I contacted some friends in San Diego to find out how they were doing when the wild fires raged through the county. I learned that technology played a key role in the school district's ability to communicate with families and continue learning despite a county-wide evacuation.

Something to remember?

I just returned home from North Carolina where I presented at the NCaect conference, I took my wife and her mother along so they could revisit Fayetteville, the place they had spent some a precious years while my wife's father was stationed at Ft. Brag. My son and I were in tow as the two women came face to face with two similar but different re-aquaintences with the past.

Technology and Education

Looking at the rapid advancement of technology the world is changing very fast and with it changing the people’s living style and habits. Everything is driven with the help of technology and it has become really difficult for someone to remember even a single item that doesn’t use technology. Learning has also lent itself in to the hands of technology and has taken a new name as E-Learning.

What research says about project-based learning

Hi all,
I just posted a blog that might interest classroom 2.0'rs. What research says about project-based learning. Lots of teachers looking at technology in the classroom find that technology and projects go really well together. But it's not easy to implement project-based learning in the traditional classroom. There are lots of ideas here that might be helpful!
