The Divided Stories of Education Reform, Personal Cognitive Revolutions, and New Superheroes

A few months ago I interviewed John Taylor Gatto for my “Future of Education” interview series. From 1989-1991 Mr. Gatto was recognized as the New York City teacher of the year, as well in 1991 as the New York State teacher of the year. In the summer of 1991 he retired abrubptly, and in a very public way: in an op-ed piece published… Continue

Web 2.0 Is the Future of Education

A moment of extreme clarity became an obsession for me last week. A session that I had prepared for the IL-TCE conference went from "Web 2.0 Tools for the Classroom" to "Why Web 2.0 Is Important to the Future of Education." Then, as PowerPoint fever gripped me (OpenOffice.org Impress, actually), moving slides around as though they were puzzle pieces finally coming together correctly, I found my thoughts coalescing toward a bold conclusion and… Continue

Report on the Classroom 2.0 LIVE Workshop in San Francisco

This past Friday and Saturday we held the first ever "Classroom 2.0

LIVE" workshop in San Francisco, California. I've been trying to make

as many notes as I can about this event because I think the format of a

collaboratively-built workshop around the topic of Web 2.0 in education

has such potential, and I am anxious to do more of these and to keep

improving them. I apologize in advance for the length of the post--for

those of you who are interested, the detail may… Continue

As

more and more we are seeing social networking for the huge phenomenon

Ben Wilkoff 's Academy of Discovery (School 2.0, Part 11)

For months, I've been listening to this guy who records himself talking in the car (and no, it's not Kevin Honeycutt!). He calls his recording series and blog "Discourses

about Discourse," and most of them are discussions with himself about

his attempts to implement "School 2.0:" his use of the tools of the web

in his classroom, how his students are responding, what feedback he… Continue

Feedback to US Secretary of Education on Technology in Education

For those in the U.S., Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings has asked for ideas on the integration of technology in education. There is a form on the ed.gov site, but no ability to dialog or even leave your contact information if you fill it out. Therefore, I have created a forum thread for each of Secretary Spellings' questions, and propose that we discuss them here and invite her office to view the dialog on this website and even participate.



This is a terrific… Continue

Adapted from Phil McCluskey at Ning:



Go to the video that you want to use on TeacherTube. Then look at the "page source" information for the page (in Firefox, View --> Page Source).

The Web 2.0 and School 2.0 Connection

I gave the keynote address to the CVCUE meeting

in Fresno this past Saturday, and prepared a presentation on why Web

2.0 is going to be so important to education. When I was driving home I

made a connection that I hadn't fully made before: that the transition

between Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 is very similar, if not almost… Continue
