Public Speaking, Death and Twitter in the Classroom

How many times have you said something about public speaking or your reluctance to give speeches and had someone come right back with the threadbare cliché about how “one study” found that “the average person fears public speaking more than death?

Who conducted this study, exactly?

Regardless of whether or not this “study”/cliché can be…

Ten Commandments for Teachers on the Web

To prevent good teachers and other public figures from making bad posts,

I have created the following list. I hope it helps!

(Note: multiply the cautious attitude of this list by ten if you an un-tenured teacher.)

1. Thou shalt never publish anything you wouldn’t show your…

The Return of The One Comment Project

In July of 2009, I launched The One Comment A Day Project. My mission was to promote new bloggers and bring comments to existing blogs. Initially, The One Comment A Day Project burst on to the scene with the celerity of a gazelle, however, it soon became another faded project. The members of the ning remained, however, the collaborative dialogue that…

Technology Committee

Today my principal called me in to ask if I'd be interested in serving on a committee chaired by our superintendent. The committee will be making recommendations about opening up our district to using (and allowing students to use) more technology and social networking at school. From the way it was described to me, it seems as though the main focus will be social networking. Anyway, I'm going to do some research prior to the first meeting. I'd like to go in with research, anecdotes, lesson… Continue

Using blogs, twitter, wikis in the classroom

I am just started to look into this and am trying to get started planning for next year....but I need your help! Does anyone have any ideas about using these in the classroom? I am a secondary math teacher and what to integrate some of them into my classroom. Also, any ideas on how to keep it safe, introduce it to parents to get their support, how not to just use it but use it effectively, etc.

An Old-School Way of Thinking About Twitter

I recently read an article on the Langwitches blog comparing Twitter to a large dinner party. I think this analogy is perfect. Just like at a huge dinner party, with so many people talking at the same time, about so many different things, you can't possibly keep up with every conversation at once. In fact, you'd seem like a… Continue

Entering the staffroom

Unusual, there is a deathly hush as Smithers enters the staffroom. Its full, but there is no hubbub, no chatter, no goss... everyone sits silently.

Smithers goes and sits in his usual, well worn and comfortably moulded armchair.... he looks left and right, somewhat disconcerted by the total lack of sound....

To his left, Marley scrawls a note on a 'post it' (these are suddenly all over the coffee tables. It is passed to him.

It reads, 'Don't speak, we are banned… Continue

Churches ask: WWJD (in 140 Characters or Less)

US churches use Twitter to reach a wider audience

"Pastors in Westwinds Community Church in Michigan spent two weeks teaching their congregation about Twitter, which allows users to send messages to each other which are no longer than 140 characters. Of the church's 900 adult members, 150 are now tweeting."

Where for art thou Twitter?

I have been using Twitter for over a year. Since New Years 2009, Twitter has taken off to new heights. Everybody wants you to follow him or her on twitter, from United States Senators to Shaq, twitter has become a ubiquitous forum for those who want to know everything.…

Twitter in the classroom?

A portion of this post is a response to a class discussion, addressing the idea of using social networking tools in a standard classroom setting. My classmate didn't think it was a good idea to incorporate these technologies in the standard learning process. Technology such as Twitter and other social networking technologies used in the classroom can "possibly" disrupt the standard learning process. An… Continue

No requirements on job title were given. Below are the responses from all who participated. I enjoyed reading and contemplating the ideas behind each… Continue

Day 4 - 28 Days of Twitter: "What I learned on Twitter Today"

This is a meta-find, and a gem. Because what I found on Twitter today was a blog post by @cljennings explaining her "learning curve" with Twitter -- how she just didn't 'get it' at first, how she was determined to try it but was unsure how to find people to follow, or how to make it meaningful... and then how it all came together. The post is entitled, aptly,… Continue

Day 3 - 28 Days of Twitter: Teachers Who Share

Today was a rich Twitter day -- lots of things to explore, but I'm just going to share one, a blog post from Dean Shareski, entitled "Teachers Who Share." I think transparency of practice, a willingness to be open, to take calculated risks, to share process and product, struggles as well as successes, to question and reflect "out loud," may be the most important aspect of this "networked learning" we're learning… Continue
