Hi Octavio, I wish you a great 2009!

Let me tell you a bit about me. I am from Argentina, where I have carried out some research that showed a very small percent of secondary school teachers make actual use of the Internet in for their practices. I will be giving a talk next february to share ideas and resources with many colleagues who do not even know about web 2.0. I participate of classroom 2.0 but would like to start my own network so as to show my colleagues here what one can do whith sites like NIng(and also as a personal challenge!) If you could please join me at

and probably invite some of your colleagues, too. It would be very helful to start making the network grow!
Thanks a lot.

Robot or teacher?

Posted on March 7, 2009 at 8:39am 8 Comments

Can robots teach in classrooms? Will they be considered more expensive than real teachers? Will schools close down? Will this be a sort of back to the past when there weren't schools?
