Lesson Review

Recently I developed a Blended Learning PD for my teachers. This lesson was designed to stand on its own, and model what a Blended Learning lesson should look and feel like. As I compared my coursework to Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy, which I didn’t use to…

Teaching in the Digital Age

Teaching in the Digital Age is exciting.  Finding new ways to teach, connect, and help students grow is a challenge we, as educators, are starting to realize.  Collaborating and networking are becoming essential skills for educators.

In the article, “Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants” by Marc Prensky, I learned that I am a digital immigrant.  I did not grow up immersed in technology.  I do think, as an immigrant, I have been adapting pretty well.  Immigrants are pretty accepting of…

Research 2.0 = Searching + Evaluating + Annotating + Sharing + Collaborating

Each year I become more and more excited about teaching students to research. Here is my evolution in teaching research skills:

1993-2001: Teach students to read nonfiction and take notes so that they can report learning without plagiarizing. Yawn.

2001-2006: Teach students to read nonfiction online and in print. Scour the internet to identify the best websites for kids to use. Develop webquests.…

Classrooms for the Digital Age

I am definitely a digital immigrant.  Ironically, my job is to support 35 teachers who teach digital natives. While I am not afraid of technology, I do have what Marc Prensky would define as a accent.  On example of my accent would be that I send out a monthly newsletter and then print copies for each teacher to review at monthly meetings with teams of teachers.  I would classify two of the teachers I support as digital…

1:1 Laptop Schemes - 21st Century Digital Natives

“21st Century Digital Natives” is a phrase that has been used in education for several years; Marc Prensky (2001) first coined the term digital native to refer to today's students. They are native speakers of technology, fluent in the digital language of computers, video games, and the Internet. By introducing a 1:1 laptop scheme, schools can capture the interest of these “digital natives” and enhance learning and…

Reposted from Meg's Notebook

We decided to explore these articles because of a recent announcement by our board to investigate and pursue the opening of all-boys schools (see article).

New Media Literacy: Relevance and Challenges

The concept of Technology Literacy became immediately relevant for me last year as I was filling out the 2008-09 ADE Educational Technology Survey required for our district to receive funding under the Title II-D/EETT program. I had to answer the following questions:

Q40: How many 8th grade students in your school/district would be classified as technologically literate according to the following definition:

Now they can organize themselves, publish themselves, inform themselves, and share with ther friends-- without waiting for an authority to instruct them."

Isn't that great!? I hope you will imagine with me what that means for learning! It's a… Continue
