Wikipedia Is NOT Wicked!

Hi, My name is Gwyneth and I use Wikipedia every day.

There, I said it. Somehow that's pretty freeing! Wikipedia is NOT a dirty word. We're doing a disservice not teaching our kids HOW to use it and how to cite in - ummm selectively & with forethought. Sadly, I don't believe teachers & college professors are ready to wrap their mind around or…

Are librarians leaders in collaboration and professional development?

Started a teacher librarian program in July. Amazed at all I have learned in a few weeks. Class discussion centers around how teacher librarians should be leaders in technology use through collaboration and professional development within their schools. In your experience are the librarians leaders in technology, collaboration, and PD? I already have much to share, but I don't want teachers to tune the message out.

Math GPS sequencing is wonky

Teaching students how to comment...

About 1.5 weeks ago I rolled out my class blog (Mr. Lane's Computer Applications/Web 2.0 Blog) as an interactive tool with my 8th grade Web 2.0 technology class (the first few weeks it served, more or less, as a Web 1.0 tool). After working through the layout of the blog, we read together a post, and then I asked them to submit a comment. Before they commented I spent some time discussing the importance of making sure the comment was free of spelling… Continue
