The Filtered Network!

Posted on March 24, 2009 at 12:38pm 2 Comments

Well, I am still trying to incorporate educational technology into my students' every day lives; however, we are running into trouble with gaining access to the available technology in our labs due to filters put in place by our tech team. VERY FRUSTRATING!! I know the filters are put in place to keep spam and other non-educational material out of our students' reach, but we cannot access the sites we need. My classes were even blocked from online interviews with lawyers, physicians, and… Continue

"The Networked Student"

Posted on March 9, 2009 at 1:09pm 2 Comments

After viewing "The Networked Student" again, I have to admit that I have scruples about my students being the self-starters they need to be in order to be successful as a networked student. I have so many students, even today, who will sit and wait for me to lead them through the searching process because they "don't know what to do." It is frustrating, to say the least, when I give specific instructions and then have to go and lead the students by the hand through a project to get any… Continue

Five Minds for the Future

Posted on March 6, 2009 at 2:14pm 0 Comments

After reading Five Minds for the Future, I feel like most people have a combination of at least two of the "minds." I feel like most professionals work hard towards being proficient in their area of discipline, whether it is being a carpenter, educator, or politician. Whatever passion drives a person, they strive to be the very best in the profession. As a teacher of high school students, I believe it is extremely important to be prepared and self-disciplined as well as knowledgeable. I,… Continue

Today in class, we did a book review. I asked our librarian, the most honorable Martha Black ( she is a life-saver), to pull enough books for all of my classes. She pulled 84 books. To start the book review, each student chose a book and read for three minutes. After reading, if the student wanted to keep the book to read more, they didn't have to pass the book back to the next student, but if they wanted to check out more books, they passed their book back and got another book from the student… Continue

Reviewing, Reviewing, Reviewing!

Posted on March 3, 2009 at 10:16am 0 Comments

Since January, all 10th grade teachers as well as 11th and 12th grade core teachers have been reviewing out the wazoo! The funny thing is--we all love it, and want to see our kids pass the grad exam the first time! This week in particular, we are all stressed and ready to move forward.

In my 9th grade English class, we are writing expository essays with my students fighting tooth and nail to weed out slang, numbers for letters, symbols, and what else, text messaging lingo! We peer… Continue

Hi Tracy, it's nice to meet you.

I am sorry for the reply too.

I couldn't access the classroom20 in the past few weeks, I don't know why, maybe the website@NING server is slow to China IP addresses.

Hi Tracey, have to admit that I had to look up what an expository essay was again. Do you know about Study Guides? I use there guides when I want a quick review about things from Problem Based Learning to MLA Style Guides. Anyway, I would use Google News to have students research a topic. It allows student to look through newspaper and create research feeds that they can create an email alert for or embed in a start page. These are the things we will be going over on Monday. If you do it before than, I could do a Skype call and be a guest speaker to your class to show them how to do it. If this interest you we could set up a day and time either on Thursday or Friday. Let me know if you want to try.

I understand. But like anything else it takes awhile to get into a rhythm. Try to set aside an hour a week to participate in these activities and you will be well on your way to becoming a networked learner. What have you been doing in your class this week? Have you had a chance to read Five Minds yet? What did you think?
