Not convinced

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…

To Build A Classroom Website

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.

Before the Students Arrive ("T Minus 5")

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…

Media Guide for TRON now available

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…

My 3 Biggest Mistakes and 3 Biggest Successes as a First-Year Teacher

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…

Positive Classroom Discipline - By Lynn Staley

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…

Video Games in Education

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…

Why Do Students Disrupt Classroom Instruction: Summary Statement

For many years teachers and researchers have been studying the complex problem of understanding student misbehavior in school. There is an increasing body of evidence (*Solomon & Solomon, 2008) that suggests a student’s disruptive behavior is related to three key classroom variables or conditions:

1. The negative thoughts and feelings that dwell within the student. (e.g. I’m having a miserable day, and I’m going to make certain that everyone else in class has a miserable day as… Continue

Online Virtual Classroom

On the advantages of virtual, text-based discussions:

"... In all my years of teaching classes, there are always some students in the class who are very hard to get to speak up. You can ask them a direct question, but basically, unless they are put on the spot, these students will not volunteer their own opinions in class, and I think… Continue

Grant Writing for Technology Integration

One of my goals is to incorporate more technology into my classroom. Unfortunately, as we have all found, money is tight. I am interested in finding grants and sources for newer technologies to be used in the classroom. I am very interested in the Tablet PC and have found several grant possibilities. Does anyone have any suggestions? What pitfalls have you found in the grant-writing process? I am really looking for suggestions...
