Playing Catchup with Technology

It's amazing that every time we catch up with technology our needs and technology itself grows more complicated.

This is my second year at a Mac school. Some of the resources we have are impressive: MacBooks for every teacher, Smartboards in every classroom, a classroom set of MacBook carts for each floor in the main building, video cameras, microphones, point and shoot cameras, plus four DSLR cameras, and a computer lab with 24 iMacs.

But we also have to deal with limited…

Information | Knowledge | Wisdom

The other day, my son had done something we didn't approve of and so we took his cell phone away and access to the computer. He loves technology for what it offers, both good and not so good: YouTube, social networks for kids or not (myspace) and research for school. Over the course of a summer break, he taught himself how to read music, play the guitar and follow along with these videos to learn certain songs - I must… Continue

A Web 2.0 Halloween

Last night America, went out for weekly Tuesday meeting and so I had the kids at home to myself. After giving the critters their baths and getting them into their pjs, we got into the Halloween spirit. With that, we pulled out all the gear from the attic and decided to create a haunted hallway. The kids love making tents with blankets and such so we… Continue

YouTube x 4

Who doesn't like 80's music? Okay, the song is a little cheesy, but take a look at this in 4 x YouTube HD! We've all see a lot of YouTube in our time, but this is really cool and probably very time consuming. Four YouTube Videos running simultaneously to form one video. Click play at the top to have them auto synced. I wish I would have thought of this...…

Social not cool anymore?

I believe that the aspect of including social media and social elements in your school, work, or play is important and that it is still all the "buzz." But, is using the words "social" or "social network" out? Facebook has a made a few minor changes, notably, they have removed the social network definition in their description. Maybe it's just a given or maybe it's just out. It reminds me of the days when everyone went through the whole... "we're a .com… Continue

Are we there yet?

On many long road trips, my kids are always asking me, "Are we there yet?" And so it seems fitting that this is something our kids are asking us as educators, "Are we there yet?" There are so many tools and resources available for students, teachers, parents and communities to connect far beyond their classroom walls, yet I wonder, when we will we get there. As I read all the blog posts through my Google Reader or find great videos like the one below,… Continue
