Busy-interesting-learning -week

I am so looking forward to the weekend so I can play around with some of the tools I have discovered this week. Most recently and the ability to make an animated video in minutes. It's clunky and a little bumpy but I never lost any work. The students reacted well to the presentations and tomorrow the students will give it a test drive.

Not doing too poorly in developing the habits needed to keep blogging at leat once per week. Finished reading Will Richardson's book,… Continue

Collaboration Ideas

I am looking for a class to have a book club with. We would have weekly readings. Each student would weekly write a comment and respond to a comment. We are a second grade class and would like to work together with a class close to our age. We also need to be able to communicate in English only sorry.

Please Let Us Know!

We are also looking at a paper airplane project in the Spring.

blogs, blogs, and more blogs

I've had the students create their blogs on the schools intranet worpressMU installation. So far I've got 25 of 60 blogs set up. Their were/are some minor problems, but I will get them all a blog eventually.

I had student reactions ranging from this is very cool ... all the way to you can't make us do this. It is math class and some of them are excited about reading and blogging and some not so much.

My blog about the book I'm reading:… Continue

Open Source, Web, and Tools for Students and Teachers

Over the summer I installed worpressMU on the jasperstreet server. It was a success, and as a result I installed it on the school intranet server and will be offering blogs to any interested teachers, clubs, or whatever. If you want a blog you can have one too.

I am excited at the prospect. I am going to have my students blog about the books they read from the mini library in my class each student will have their own blog, which they… Continue

Reading; The Last Gigabyte

Dear Reader:

If you are reading this then you know how to read! This is a project I built in conjunction with my Librarian and an English Teacher.

I have been "forcing" my mathematics students to read, you know like books and stuff. My librarian has inspired me; I just:

* go to the schools library web page

* log in

* search for books

* add the ones I like to my personal list

* and check out 20 books at a time for one month

* the books… Continue

Replacing the Daily Planner with an iGoogle Page

Every year, students receive a daily planner before the start of school. Depending on the grade level, some teachers will spend a day showing students how to effectively plan their week. For most, this is a practical tool that has worked for many years. However, it is also a tool that many students lose. What if it was…

Perhaps you, like me, have read and considered the power behind Wikis, Blogging, as well as wondered what's all the HYPE about Web 2.0. Or, maybe you have considered all of the many suggestions about what the best tech tools are or wondered if the World is really going Web 2.0. It seems that many discussions on Classroom 2.0 have been lively and provide great ideas on how we, as teachers, can use web 2.0 tools with our students. I had a handle on these topics and have enjoyed my attempts to… Continue

What's so good about Web 2.0?

Last Tuesday, we learned about Web 2.0 Technology. It has greatly helped all of us to be able to enjoy the Internet and also be able to connect with other users- even if you have never met them before! In class, Mr. Eveland showed us an old game, Oregon Trail, and then played it on the Internet. Using an educational yet fun fames in which students can learn and have fun at the same… Continue

eMINTS Winter Conference

I'm working on a presentation I'm giving at the eMINTS Winter Conference about Web 2.0 Tools. My focus is not what they are, but how to use them to encourage higher order thinking skills, engagement, reflection, and questioning. I finally finished up the agenda today, so now I've started working on putting the plan together. In the process, I decided to update my classroom wiki and found the plugins on pbwiki. Very cool!

I finally feel comfortable about my presentation, but have a long way… Continue

My blog

I want to provide educators with a link to my blog: I created the blog to share speech-language materials that I personally designed. Even if a educator is not in speech or special education, I believe that my blog can be appreciated by those in regular education. Regular educators might still be able to use my materials with their students, or they can just see how I use… Continue

Let's Change The World

December 21st, 2008

First blog entry.

Belief statements “up front”:

1. I think learning is the greatest adventure on the planet! Should be some tv reality shows that explore it and celebrate it.

2. I have tremendous respect for teachers and teaching. I don’t know any group that works harder for more people. ANY comment I may make that sounds contradictory to that is a result of frustration with an old system of “school” that gets in the way of great people being… Continue
