About Me
I am a high school teacher at Sullivan Heights Secondary in Surrey, British Columbia. I have been teacher for more then 25 years in total, some in elementary schools, but mostly with the secondary schools. Most of my career I have been a computer facilitator at the schools. My position not only includes teaching as many students as I can to use and enjoy technology but also try to teach other teachers how to use technology as well. I enjoy this task immensely.

My present school has 4 labs of computers (two macs labs and two PC labs), 3 COWs (computers on wheels) and each classroom has a computer in the classroom as well. The use of technology in some form is high in our school as well as our district. Wireless networking has been set up in the high schools, and students are now able to add the personal computers to the network (as a limited guest). So you can imagine our network and the repairs, maintenance and training for all this technology is quite a full load. That's my position.

As a teacher I have a Bachelor's Degree in Business Education, an undergraduate degree in implementing technology in education, and a Masters degree in Arts in Distance Learning. I teach Grade 8 - 12 students Information Technology and teach the students straight Web 2.0 tools for usage by students in their other classrooms. Students get rewarded for teaching other students or their other teachers these new tools. Teachers are willing to use the tools with projects in classroom with my help and the help of students that know the programs. The Grade 12 students create web sites for other teachers when learning web site designing. All together, a lot of technology and programs are used in our school.

Jeopardy Game...

Posted on May 4, 2010 at 7:19pm 1 Comment

This one is an old one but a great one. I use Jeopardy Powerpoint in my classroom all the time. It's really simple and great for a review. I put students into pairs and ask them to play against each other keeping score. Then I email the Jeopardy game to them. Or you can play it as a classroom with you running the program and splitting the class.

The one I attached I used in my classroom after doing a unit on Emailing. I had prizes (candies) for the winners. Kids loved it and the… Continue

On a roll - Prezi....

Posted on May 3, 2010 at 7:57pm 3 Comments

I've been teaching Prezi, the presentation software to my students in Grades 8 - 12. I have also been teaching it to my fellow colleagues. And this is what I've been handing out to them to help them get started. The presentation program is fun, excellent for concept mapping as well as just plain image mapping. Students have the ability to put an order to their thoughts at the end of the presentation instead of worrying about what should come next after each slide on the slide show. This lets… Continue

FaceBook and it's security

Posted on May 3, 2010 at 7:51pm 0 Comments

Thinking of teaching Facebook to my Grade 10 students in my Information Technology class this coming year. It's not a "if you can't beat them, join them" idea. It's more of I need to teach them the safety of the Internet and with Facebook always being used (inside school and outside if we're all truthful about this), then we need to think about teaching the students about the new privacy setting that been created on it.

Starting the process of of setting this up...

While you would think this site is easy to use, unfortunately it's not that simple. I've been reading about Bloglines, and it seems to me exactly what I needed. A place where all my blogs can be gathered together so I can go to only one spot to get all the information I want, and read at my leisure. Instead of 50 million bookmarks to click on (OK so I'm exaggeration but pretty darn close to it), and going through my Delicious Account to access one at a time, I thought this would make it simpler… Continue
