Being new to Classroom 2.0, I'm not convinced of the practicality or ease of use of this tool. It's got too much going in it. All the links on the top, the header I can't control. The links on the sides, I can't tell what is mine and what is Classroom 2.0's. I see I can invite colleagues, but I don't see an immediate easy way to add people who are already on classroom 2.0. These are a lot of the same reasons I don't care for facebook much, though it seems like facebook is a slightly less…Continue

Thanks to the advice I found of Classroom 2.0, other educators, and talking with faculty in my school, I created a two hour workshop to plan and design a classroom website along with two companion websites that will hopefully grow as I add content.

Today was "T Minus 5". Students arrive in five working days.
Two feelings: chatty and overwhelmed.
Importance of Chat
Each school year begins with faculty and staff assemblies. I look over a sea of roughly 300 people, about a third of whom I know fairly well. I want to hear about their summers. I want them to expand on their Facebook updates - all the fun stories they didn't post.
I think the importance of beginning-of-year chat is…

In April, Disney released the TRON Legacy 3-D/TRON Collection. TRON was addressing net neutrality before the world knew what the net was. This combo pack is the perfect classroom tool to begin the conversation. Yes, I get that Legacy was a not the best plot line but who cares. When you think about the “cutting edge” special effects that are now quaint in the first film and the fact that they actually had to do R&D for the costumes in the second, there’s a conversation to be had about how…Continue

This week I had the privilege of visiting my first classroom. The room looked and smelled exactly the same as it did back in 1993. I, however, look completely different. I think differently too.
I was flooded with memories as I walked around. I began thinking of my mistakes and successes in…Continue

Are you a new teacher? Are you struggling with discipline and classroom management?
To many teachers, discipline means to punish, but does punishment transform the misbehavior? Does it work?
Discipline means to teach. Rather than detention and missing recess, positive child guidance focuses on both the weaknesses and strengths of each child and then teaches the specific skills necessary to be successful in the classroom. It is time to discard the traditional paradigm…Continue

A recent class discussion regarding development of the learning space for today's students and parent involvement brought about a number of different concepts which were quite interesting to read over the course of the past two weeks. Once topic, in particular, struck a chord. Part of our discussion explored the idea of technology becoming synonymous with a binkie. High priced toys which some parents purchase just to keep their kids out of their hair. The parents get some quiet time…Continue
