Check out this article on Blooms Digital Taxonomy written by Andrew Churches. It is wonderful and should be read by every administrator, curriculum coordinator and teacher.

Aren't web 2.0 tools fun? I found this site last weed Friday and couldn't wait to share it with my teachers this morning. For teaching how words are connected take a look at It's an online graphical dictionary. It uses Princeton University's Wordnet database. I only wish the code could be embedded or the finished product easily copied/printed. Be prepared to spend a little time there. It's fun moving the words around and seeing the effect on the whole picture. I got hooked trying out different words and before I knew it almost an hour had passed. Enjoy!

Hi Lynne! thanks for sharing your voki! I was so taken with it I went right to voki and tried it out myself! I embedded my new voki in my blog and my wiki! On a related blog entry, I gave you all the credit for the inspiration! I will be teaching wikis in an elementary school next week. I look forward to hearing the teachers' ideas for the ways they might use them. I hope to have something to share back here! Thanks again! BJ

This may be more fun than useful but check out the voki on my page. A voki is a talking avatar. A few teachers in the high school here use it and the kids love it. One guy records their homework assignments but changes the characters each week. The students watch it over and over again for fun.

It is great to have this group! I have started a movement that I think this group would be perfect for: "No More Paper!"
I think one of the main reasons teachers do not integrate technology is because they are unaware of the digital equivalent of the traditional lesson they teach.

I have created a wiki where we can put a digital version of the traditional lesson.

I hope that you all can join in. Here is the wiki:

HI, My name is Karen (my friends call me Kiki) and I am one of fourteen facilitators at Frisco ISD. I was a classroom teacher for 14 years and completed my Masters in Educational Technology in 2002. August 2008 will begin my seventh year at Frisco ISD as a Technology Integration Facilitator (TIF).

As a Technology Integration Facilitator, my primary duties are: assisting educators in integrating technology into their curricula, curriculum writing and multiple staff developments. I am currently facilitating a book study for Frisco ISD educators interested in learning the what’s and why’s about Web 2.0 and how it may be applied into their classroom curricula. Please visit our blog, Additionally, please visit These computer centers were developed in an effort to assist teachers in incorporating technology into their curricula. I am thrilled to have stumbled across it.

I am a tech apps teacher at an elementary school in Pasadena, Texas. I love using technology in the classroom and having students learn in new and innovative ways. I'm looking to connect with others who want to share ideas.
