Chromebooks in Public Schools

Hi,I searched the forums here and was surprised to not find anything about Chromebooks.  Is anyone out there have Managed school Chromebooks and if so, how is that working out for you?  All I here is tablet this and Ipad that, but when I look at the tasks that students need to complete, the apparent lack of tech support needed, the Chromebook seems like a great solution on paper.  I fully understand it's capabilities. (Web OS, Cloud based computing).  Thanks for any input... StuSee More

I have a copyright question for everyone.  A teacher wants to purchase an audiobook and then post it to her website for her students to access.  The page she would put it on would be password protected and only for students in her class that are reading that book.  Another option would be to save this file to a network folder, again, password protected... Does this fly under Educational use?See More

Edmodo Versus Moodle

Hi all,We currently use Moodle in our district.  Mostly for discussion boards. I have just started to play with edmodo and feel it is far superior for many reasons including:Easier to create groupsEasier way to collect and grade assignmentsA more modern feelI am the tech coach here and have worked with teachers for a few years now on moodle.  Many get frustrated by the lack of intuitiveness and students think its antiquated. The couple of teachers that I have shown Edmodo to have jumped in and…See More

Community of Educators or a Community of Self Promoters?

I used to come here all the time looking for answers and suggestions for technology use in the classroom.  Now it seems that all people in here are doing is shamelessly trying to promote their own blog, website, or product.  Most of the links you all are posting are blocked by our filter, so even if you do have good info, I can't get to it.  If you have an answer to someones question, just post it!  Don't give me a link to "your blog".  Students first... Respectively yours, StuSee More

Looks like opinions are shifting though. Personally I see the marketing and social aspects of twitter being as biggest piece, larger than the information piece. Along with you, I feel as though I am leaving the need to be on the cutting edge behind and shifting my focus back to the non-techie teacher as you have.

The gap between what is happening on Classroom 2.0 and what ordinary teachers (speaking elementary here) can realistically be expected to implement in their classrooms is growing wider. Twitter, Voicethread, YouTube, and many more tools used with regularity are blocked in my district. Most of our teachers do not have the basics like a laptop, projector or document camera. So, twitter? Not ready for it yet, it may still happen at some point down the road but I don’t see it in the next few years.

Information/content remains the important piece for me, I can still get that here and look forward to the day when an application surfaces that feeds my homepage with all of the content I get from different sources; bloglines, google docs, facebook, email, etc. I will leave you with this article. I enjoyed the idea of going green with information, especially today!

Hey- just what we were talking about this morning Stu...wondering about the true use of twitter and what this post refers to as noise- definitely NOISE. I was glad to see this

Hi Stu,
TechCrunch has been talking about Twitter lately, if you haven't read the latest it is pretty interesting. I like the reference to noise. I couldn't help but make the connection between twitter noise, teacher noise, and student noise. TechCrunch's reference to Web 3.0 being about reducing noise and getting to the point at the same time struck a chord with me. Pardon the pun! Anyway, you can find the TechCrunch post here.
