posted on this page on 21st Century Learning suggests requirements that neither make all schools the same, nor require we drop everything we do. But it does suggest a framework for renewal. We need to:
- Use a project/problem based curriculum and experiential learning
- Have students address real world problems
- Nurture and support creativity
- Instill curiosity -- lifelong
- See the arts as…

I have just returned from the annual TESOL Conference in Boston, Mass. I am so energized with all of the information that was provided in the CALL sessions. There are so many online tools that can be used with our ESL/EFL students in the classroom. I would like to share some of the sessions that I attended.Alice.org

This week at the ITSC conference
in Portland OR, I was really shocked at the amount of demand for anything to do with teachers learning how to use video creation in the classroom.
Those sessions looked to be full and maybe even overflowing!
As a media producer, I create video projects for the web for my clients so I am doing this week in and week out. I also

It has been said that, “the only constant is change itself.”
Though difficult at times, we know that change breeds growth, a necessary part of life.
As teaching veteran with a quarter of a century's experience, I can say without hesitation that I have seen technology “change the face of education.” Literally amazed at times, I have watched in awe, as technology transformed the dynamic of my classroom in the most profound way. Through hard work, professional readings, and the… Continue

A number of educators are starting to use video technology to capture everything from class drama projects, to school activities and outings, or to make available supplementary notes or how-to instructions for assignments and projects. These video-taped items are typically made available to students via classroom computer(s) or the library's computers, however, many teachers are now taking advantage of… Continue

The common problem with getting students to turn to dictionaries or similar tools to verify spelling, pronunciation, or simply learn the meaning of a word, is the basic limitations of the experience. When a generation that has grown up participating in and / or leading the creation of narrative online (via their social networks and blogs) is faced with a non-to-low interactive and non-social experience, we can easily predict the outcome: boredom and disinterest, and they will only do it if… Continue

Ok-it's spring break and I've been up since 6 a. m. Not because I couldn't sleep, just because I like to get up early. I've spent the last 3 hours messing around with web tools I haven't had time to play with when school's in session. Yes, I think I am a nerd. But that's ok. I've been called worse.
The first type of media I started on this morning was Glogster. It's going to take a little bit more for me to get used to it. I set up an account for each of my 100 students. So now I'm… Continue
