On my Research

Well I haven't had a chance to blog in ages because I have been keeping myself very busy. Almost too busy. A lot of my buds from college look to me at times and ask me how I do it. I don't even know sometimes.

Okay, well more or less I was starting to progress in my research and then the end f the quarter came where I work. end of the quarter as you all means chasing around students to get their past work in (for absences right before the end of the quarter) and getting those midterms…

Video album from teachertube

This is just a short post, as I am trying to catch up with everything online before school starts back tomorrow. I have been camping for 10 days. However, I was really excited to find I could put my video album onto my website. I wanted to checkout the teachertube videos that I had uploaded for both myself and student work last year, but I clicked on the wrong link, thinking that I was going to read the messages that were awaiting for me to read. Instead, it took me to my home page and showed… Continue

Big Questions

I am trying to make large changes in my levels of computer knowledge. I was wondering if someone could take a moment to describe the differences between a ning, microblog, blog, wiki, skype, twitter and a moodle.

a step and then another...and another

I am excited every day the kids begin arriving in the morning. I get so much energy from them. There were moments halfway through my cert program when I questioned if I was in fact doing the right thing. Do I really have what it takes to educate future citizens? What makes me equipped for such a job?

But this quarter I got back in the classroom and knew that this was it. Every day I love to be here. Don't get me wrong, I am scared to death sometimes about all the things that I don't know or… Continue

The Ning adventure begins - in my class

This week I started using a Ning network with my English as a Second Language class.

It's an exciting, challenging time for me working with a group of students

with vastly differing levels of ICT knowledge. Some have studied in the

field while others have had very little experience with computers.

My big lesson this week is Model, model, model and small, small, small. In the

excitement of it all, I think I tried to get too many things going… Continue

Spring08: Friday, second week - thoughts about quizzes

Well, here it is, already Friday of the second week of the semester. I feel a bit zonked, but I think perhaps that is because I am coming down with a cold - it is more than just the usual online course end-of-week-zonkiness! Anyway, I want to stick to my plan of reflecting on how things went in general this week, and what improvements I can make next semester.

Probably the biggest thing I noticed was people either stressing too much about the quizzes (taking the quizzes over and over… Continue

Project-based learning: Does it fit teacher education molds?

Today's students experience the massive use of rubrics, matrix, highly structured assignments, and keeping up will teacher's rules for this project forms -- Are students able to create quality work without rubrics and the like? Are we most interested in the outcomes as with a graded test when utilizing technology-based, CIA projects? After all, rubrics provide the guidelines for MAKING THE GRADE in most core classes.

So far so good

Fifteen high school students have already registered for the Wiki Mentoring Project. There was little enthusiasm to the project, but I assume they will become more interested as they get more involved with the project.

I was surprised at the number of students who have never heard of a wiki or RSS. I think this will be a bit of a learning experience for them as they learn some 2.0 tools.
