    Hi Daena,

    I love reading about and seeing you and your PE dept. in action. Like Kim, I’m very curious to see how you plan on incorporating all the technology into daily lessons and assessments. I think most or all of the pieces of the puzzle are there, and now it’s a matter of pulling it all together in a clear and coherent way that really…[Read more]

    Hi Tom, you’ve really dug deep on these topics and bring up some really valid points. Robinson’s Changing Education Paradigms and Prakash Nair’s Obsolete Classroom dive into a topic that tends to get less attention than other school reforms, perhaps due to the cost of redesigning schools. But you eloquently describe another solution, retrofitting…[Read more]

    Hi Colleen,

    Wow, where to start? I first want to say that I love your openness and honesty in your blog writing. Your voice, your passion, your fear and trepidation all come through in a flowing dialogue that feels natural. Ok, enough from the language arts teacher in me.

    I understand your reluctance around diving into digital games, and I…[Read more]

    Ann,
    I loved reading about your problem-based/challenge-based classroom assignment. I especially like how you engaged your students in the process, facilitating their collaborative spirit with global collaboration.

    Looking at SAMR, I think your project is at at the modification phase, dabbling in redefinition. Could you get students from the…[Read more]

    Angela, it’s great to hear about your eye-opening success at the (21CL EduLAN) conference. It’s nice to hear how Kim set you on the path to success with a scaffolded approach to SAMR. I’m in a tech-coaching role in the middle school here at ASD and I refer to it all the time, but the exercise you went through sounds so powerful for getting…[Read more]

    Dear Ann, don’t cut yourself short. I love your digital stories with your children, and their story shouldn’t be the same in any way to those you found on a website. Digital storytelling promotes authentic learning and expression and higher levels of student engagement. Here is a link where it was used successfully in industrial design…[Read more]

    Deana,
    I love your new presentation, which is very much more Zen than your older version. Great improvement and your audience, the new students and parents will be much more engaged and appreciative. Although, that is the ultimate test. You might want to ask for feedback after you show the new presentation. Ask what worked well and what could…[Read more]

    Tom, I really appreciate your attempt to close the Close Reading gap by finding a way to incorporate images into the teaching and learning. I really like your visual scavenger hunt idea. This “Where’s Waldo” approach of engaging students is sure to gather more interest in your students than diving into pure text straight away. Everyone loves a…[Read more]

    I hear you Thomas, and I appreciate your honorable approach of “do the right thing and expect the right thing.” But it just isn’t that easy. What about the re-mix culture? Where does art and parody and satire fit in? Fair use in schools is so difficult to define or regulate. The “experts” on this, (Media Education Lab -…[Read more]

    Digital citizenship sure is a thorny issue, and as you very clearly point out, one that is thrust before us that we can’t ignore. I’m happy that you brought up the recent talk by Larry Kuhns and Renee Williams. They are colleagues of mine at the American School of Dubai. We are currently still working with re-writing our RUP, adopting an RUA model…[Read more]

    Forbes ArticleThanks for the slap of paranoia to the face Jenny! I actually really like reading about and talking about privacy issues, because they are so important, so a part of our lives, yet so clandestine! You got me thinking about my own privacy, and whether I have done enough to stay as private as I would like. Like Kim, I appreciate some…[Read more]

    Hi Andrea,

    Great post. I like how you’ve highlighted the digital shadow, and how we are all pretty helpless when it comes to that. You said,

    “With your digital footprint, for the most part, you are the agent, but not so with your digital shadow. Is it just a hazardous by-product of connectedness, or is there something we can do to make sure…[Read more]
