The Mentor & Mentee Experience

After being transferred from a Part-Time to a Full-Time Teacher position at Aventa Learning, I was wisked off to meet my mentor. I had been itching to meet this person since the day I had finished my Teacher Training Course, which I had completed 10 days ahead of schedule, resulting in lots of nothing-to-do-but-self-teach time. I spent my "down-time" well, making Avatars and practicing using Sparkling Text for my online classroom Announcements Page, but I didn't want to just focus on the…

Web 2.0 vs. e-learning… reflection

Previous statement… Posted yesterday.

“…the proposed research will not focus on the concepts of e-learning since I consider a fundamental difference between the learning practices and methods within web 2.0 social networks and the instructional nature

of e-learning methods. The concept of e-learning will however be

discussed and partly analyzed to emphasize the unique nature or learning

within web 2.0 social networking…

So, what does a web2 classroom look like?

Do we even call it a classroom? Maybe we call it an environment?

Here are suggestions - but they are speculative suggestions only.

1. Flexible

The traditional schoolroom was a place that was designed for all to follow the same thing at the same time and the technology that was in use was so specific as to be easily accommodated within a static set up. Now we need the utmost flexibility. Flexibility on terms of desking, or power, of ICT connectivity, of computers… Continue

Global Warming

I finally got around to watching "Inconvenient Truth". Al Gore offers the most cogent argument documenting the progression of global warming and its consequences I have ever seen. This is a must-see video that should be shared with friends, colleagues, and students.

EarthDay idea: discuss experience/hints

A collaborative, international art project to build a virtual ribbon around the world. The ribbon is made up of 6" pieces with a photo or drawing of why you love the earth, a statement of love, and pledges of personal action. We want to plant the subversive thought: do we need a new relationship with the planet? Contributions from 54 countries and 8,000 individuals--many from kids and classes. Takes about 2 minutes, and the site is loaded with ideas, photos students can use, and lesson plans.… Continue

I am an educator working at a middle school in Larkspur, CA. We are in the very late stages of forming our CA non-profit and in the early stages working with our first pilot… Continue

Classroom Decor

Has anyone experimented with the physical classroom environment to increase student learning and interest in the content? If school was more like Starbucks, would students learn more? If I could create a comfortable, inviting space, would the students be more likely to learn or goof off? Everything I've looked at is mostly for elementary-age students and doesn't even consider the fact that we are dealing with real human beings who may not enjoy sitting in a cold, hard chair for a 90-minute… Continue
