5 Tech Verbs

I've been giving this some thought lately and I've decided our interaction with popular technology can be summed up with five verbs. By popular technology I mean in large part that which has to do with personal computers, and by stating five verbs I'm sure that means there are more I haven't considered. Nevertheless, the verbs I've decided on are commonly used with many applications and are associated with other… Continue

Let's keep our focus...

I recently read a blog post by @johntspencer titled "Techno-Shame." John eloquently explains why he has removed most 21st century technology blogs from his feeder. I will be taking a line directly from John's post because I don't believe I could say it any better...."Over time, I've dropped most of… Continue

Considering a Technology Plan

Some thoughts on the National Education Technology Plan:

 

“The challenge for our education system is to leverage the learning sciences and modern technology to create engaging, relevant, and personalized learning experiences for all learners that mirror students’ daily lives and the reality of their futures.  In contrast to traditional classroom instruction, this requires that we put students at the center and empower them to take control of their own learning by providing…

Do You Think University Should be Free? Then Meet Shai Reshef of University of the People

Original post

I discovered the University of the People a couple of months ago and right away its mission really intrigued me. The concept is both simple and revolutionary – to create a university which is tuition free. In today’s world of rising education costs and student debt escalating out of control, this seemed like an alternative worth exploring. The concept is…

Technology that Supports Teaching and Learning

So (full disclosure), I'm currently going through the NETS*T process, and one of our requirements is that we share at least three examples of technology we use to support teaching and learning to share with our colleagues.  Here, then, is my post (thanks for reading!):

 

One of my favorite technology tools is my messageboard, set up through proboards (sorry, you can't access it: it's password protected).  It has proven to be useful for a variety of purposes.  It began as a way…

Technology in schools...25 students sound off!

We all live in a world that is rapidly changing, and in particular, the advancements associated with technology. As society evolves and changes, schools are coming under increasing pressure to stay with the times. So often we hear that technology is a silver bullet in education, but we must remember that technology is merely a tool. A tool in the hands of a sub-par educator will continue to yield a sub-par education, while a tool in the hands of a great educator will only enhance and aid…

Technology that augments the use of technology by educators...

I recently had a discussion with a friend about the relative merits and demerits of technology, and before you jump in to claim that the pros outweigh the cons, let me iterate that the topic under debate was the value of (or lack of it) technology for those who are either scared to use technology or have no clue about it. The tech savvy may find this hard to understand, but there are still those who refuse to embrace technology or do so under considerable duress.

There’s no doubt that…

How do we define learning...?

I will start this post off by saying you will not find any answers here.

 At best you might be more confused than when you started.  This year

has been the year of change for my German students and myself.  We have

been pushing the envelope when it comes to technology integration in a

foreign language class.  Overall, I can honestly say things have been

going quite well.  Students seem to be actively engaged and interested,

and most importantly they have taken… Continue

The first step toward a digital portfolio...

My German 3 students are doing a lot of things they have never done in school before. They are taking part in an experiment of sorts...an

experiment aimed at increasing student interest and engagement levels

through the use of technology. Most importantly, I am learning right

along side each and every student of mine. Together, we are stepping

outside of our comfort zones with the hope of growing and learning

through sharing… Continue

Reflections of a PD representative - try not to take it personally...

I typically have a clear and well-thought out purpose for each blog post, however for this blog post I am going to simply reflect on today's

professional development session. I lead a PD session about 7 weeks

ago for all of the staff members at my high school on social media and

technology integration, and today's session was an extension of the

previous session for any teachers interested. We asked each staff

member to choose… Continue

5 ways to spread the power of Twitter as a PD tool...

This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the EdcampKC technology conference in Kansas City, MO. This was my first

"unconference," which basically means the entire conference was

participant-driven and each session was presented by someone who was

actually attending the conference. There was a big board set up in the

main room, and before the conference officially started any person

interested in presenting was able to… Continue

Frustration

Why is it that someone like me who's in a tech program that focuses on using tech in classrooms has a husband who feels like he can't use it in art!?


We had a discussion on the 20 minute drive home today and I even volunteered to come into his classroom and help him out because he doesn't feel comfortable using some basic non-powerpoint tools with his kids. He thinks it will take too long, they won't get it and it will be a waste of time. This is the same man who was…

Why Twitter should be a part of your PLN...

If somebody asked me about the last 6 months of my life, I would respond

by saying something like this; the past 6 months have been extremely

challenging, but yet at the same time I can say with little hesitation

that I have grown more as an educator in the last 6 months than in any

other time period in my life.



The world in which we live is changing faster than anyone could ever

imagine, and because of this the educational system must evolve and… Continue

One Day on Earth

I first heard about One Day on Earth from my colleague Galvin. It seemed like a great project for our students, and we spent some time on Friday talking about the event and how we could encourage our students to participate. We decided to promote the project among our IB students and our Club NExT (technology club) members. Eventually the conversation turned to our own ideas. We decided that we ought to… Continue
