"I was quite impressed with the "prerequisites for learning" list outlined by David Sloan Wilson in an interview on 'On Being' http://ning.it/Mk72sm with Krista Tippett -- the topic might not sound education- or personalized learning-related, but the one detailed example he gives of a success was about his effort to establish a continuation high school for the city. Here's the pertinent excerpt from the…Continue

This title is really the case study for a wider topic on Remote Apps.
For me this is one of the most exciting (tech) influences on mobile learning ... the interconnectivity between devices (and users).
I have two folders on my iPad [Remote1 and Remote2] which are full of Apps that enable connectivity between the iPad and other devices ... and that connectivity can be both ways.
See the two screen shots below.…

We've got to say, we are blown…Continue

In some places, technology is turning school inside-out, with homework in school and lectures at home, delivered through iPads or other tablets. The Washington Post highlighted Stacey Roshan’s class, saying the philosophy of the so-called…Continue

As a past DS presenter at ISTE, I'd like to share my little website with classroom DS resources and student samples with my fellow storytellers. Not a ble to attend ISTE this year, maybe some of you will find some useful stuff. I use DS regularly in my middle school science class to demonstrate and develop content knowledge. Enjoy the conference!

Are you thinking about giving your students a video lesson for “homework” or <gasp> recording yourself presenting some critical content for your students to view? Do you need to convince your administration on the theoretical soundness of having your students engage with digital video outside of class?
If yes to the above, you might want to take a look at…Continue

If you were a kid of the 1980s and 1990s, you probably saved video games for after school. Super Mario Brothers was a great way to get over the trauma of learning multiplication tables, but kids these days may have it a bit better. One 23-year-old teacher is looking to bring video games into school as classroom…

It started as a simple idea . . . What if it were possible to mentor a new teacher via a virtual mentor instead of the traditional 1-to-1 mentoring model? What if you used the power of digital resources to aid in this support, making sure that each had a particular strength in the key areas needed by a new teacher? What if you had key team members, virtual or on-site, that each took a role in that work?
As a principal, I worked hard to mentor the new teachers I hired over the years --…Continue
