Posted on January 12, 2008 at 11:02pm 2 Comments

I've had an Interwrite Pad since November and really like it and the software it has. I've also used a simple relatively inexpensive iPen. The best part of all this to me is the fact that paired with a computer and projector, this is one piece of technology that can easily move about the classroom and can actively… Continue

Step Away From the Board

It's clear that for some time now many classroom teachers have still not moved into the interactive age of learning. Many teachers are anxious to embrace new technology based on the latest trend, and not necessarily technology that will help to improve student achievement. Before I begin here I want to stress that a good teacher is a good teacher even if all they have is a paper and pencil. But take those good teachers and train them in the integration of technology and their… Continue

I'm enjoying the IWB discussion too and I'm getting a kick out the responses it's generating. I'll be re-entering the fray when I get some time in the next few days.

It is called Hadley Learning Community. It is a new building with lots of enthusiastic staff. they liked the idea of linking communication with politics....I will send you the email address.

Here is the website link for the school

I really like your comment on the 'forum' item 'research that shows technology supprts student achievement.

We have a new curriculum in the UK for 11 year olds from Sept 2008, we are trying to develop the 'collaborate' aspects of ICT content. A useful link is

Best wishes, Richard

Arlene, your classes podcasts are adorable! So, so cute and funny and wonderful. I haven't thought much about using podcasts in school... what kind of microphone do you use to record the students?

Hi again. I was wondering if you have any suggestions for a good RSS site to register with?

Hi Arlene! Thanks so much for "inviting" me. I've already started looking around, and I'm so impressed! It's exciting to find other people that share the enthusiasm for technology. BTW - Isa ordered the Ipen for me today! I can't wait to use it in my class
