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…

Should Schools Block Social Networking Sites?

Over the past five years, the response of most school administrators to social networking sites– YouTube, Facebook, MySpace, etc.– is simply to restrict access on campus. In a recent piece in Slate, Nicholas Bramble argues it’s time to open access to these sites. MORE...

Ten Ways Social Media Technology Will Change in 2010

Considering the growing role social media technology is playing in K-12 education, I found Ravit Lichtenberg’s blog 10 Ways Social Media Will Change in 2010 to be insightful. Most edtechies realize that 2009 was a pivotal year for social media technology and see its expanded use by everyday educators as a transformative development in K-12 education. MORE...

In 2009 there’s been a common stereotype, in any field, that young people don’t know what they are talking about. Over the past year the debate has grown over the positive and… Continue

Launching an Edtech company, Part 2

Building awareness around a brand (especially a new brand) is difficult. Over the past few weeks I've been getting out into the education community (the online community that is) and have connected with bloggers and individuals who I think would be great additions to our Beta testing group.

You see, when we launch we plan to do so in measured steps (so we can tweak the system to best fit the needs of our… Continue

Etherpad does not take you to the Heavens, but it comes very close to it

I had been using Etherpad ––for a while, but had never experimented its potential as a collaborative tool in the classroom.

Etherpad is one of the best online-based word processors out there not only because it is free (and now open source since Google acquired it) but also because it enables users to create a public pad without having to sign up for an account. Etherpad has many other wonderful features such as easy… Continue

Another Reason We NEED Our "Social" Tools

I haven't written here in a long time, and I don't usually cross-post. But this time, it's different. Here goes:

Unless you live in a vacuum, you know what happened at Ft. Hood, Texas yesterday. Tragedy for those there, tragedy for all our military forces everywhere, as they are, truly, a band of brothers and sisters who normally trust each other with their very lives. Yesterday, that trust was betrayed.

News reports were as chaotic as the scene, as the networks struggled… Continue

Sharing with Egyptian students

I teach fifth grade social studies at the Haverford School. In the next few weeks we will be studying ancient Egypt. I like to set up some collaboration with students in Egypt. Maybe, our students can share what it is like to be an American student and an Egyptian student. Perhaps, we can use Skype as a way of communicating.

Revenge of the Edupunks

In a recent piece on educational technology, Anya Kamenetz discusses a significant trend that is transforming higher education. According to Kamenetz, Web 2.0 technology is transforming higher education from a centralized and highly organized top down distributive model to a decentralized student-oriented learning model–one that is highly individualized, fairly inexpensive, and accessible just about everywhere.… Continue
