If education was a business, would it be a workplace?

I wouldn't mind a little feedback on the attached document. It speaks more about employees than students, but it suggests some possibilities for the student and the classroom, if a reversal of…Continue

All things considered...

Now here's a rather genuine, creative idea that will bear further watching. Check out the pod link and listen to what it has to say regarding a snow-day solution. Best use of technology idea I've heard of in a while. ;-)

Are you at a loss for motivating students? Offering New Challenges? Finding a "hook"? Generating a "Spark"?

There isn't a summer goes by that I look forward to the next year. Yes, I probably need counseling and yet I can't afford it. As the topic suggests, every year I find another "hook". Last year it was learning how to publish a web site and the year before it was desktop publishing. You ask, “How does that fit the title?” Simply by example! While I haven't gotten all the students involved in the competition with what Mr. M does for his class, some are determined to at least to do likewise or… Continue

Ning free...?

An odd. but pleasant turn in the Ning shake out for profit scheme. If you are a teacher (and for that matter, thinking about becoming one) , Pearson has apparently decided to pick up the cost of the basic service for Ning originators. I'd recommend anyone visit the site and be amazed by the materials available for the 21st century classroom. At a minimum this would be good practice for those wanting to see how to set up a ning and become familiar with this vehicle, before committing…

The times they are a change...ning!

The original tune was "the times they are a changing". Thanks in part to a class in social networking, and this site, I've become a little more than just curious about networking with like kinded individuls in teaching. There are those who would suggest, that ning's are passe', but if that is the case, I'm okay to be on a road less traveled. And maybe, someday I might outgrow this phase of mine, but I doubt it. I'm still using a hammer, and nails to put boards together one at a time. I have,…

Hi John, the free tools that are available online are amazing! I try to use only free tools in the work that I do online so that I can turn around to my students and say, "Hey guys, look at this - it's free! you can do this, too!" - in today's uncertain job economy, I figure whatever kind of entrepreneurial spirit I can inspire in my students is a good thing. Whether they end up working for someone else or working for themselves, I hope that they will benefit by learning about free tools they can use to publish websites, create email newsletters, and all those digital forms of communication they can use to promote themselves online! :-)
