Technology in the Middle » Blog Archive » Are You the Obstacle or the Answer?
I adore this post about being the obstacle or the answer from a participant in the workshop on Monday. These insights are excellent and this school MICDS has some of the most visionary, progressive teachers and administrators! It is refreshing to be here. Elizabeth Helfant, their IT director, is unbelievably sharp! Totally amazing woman with the energy of the Energizer bunny. Wow!

Researchers for Web 2.0 – Flat Classrooms
A classmate in our workshop has created a group for researchers who want to research web 2 — if you want to join a group, Craig has just retired from the Navy and has a LOT of energy!

21CT: Plurknovelas – Fictional digital storytelling with a plurk!twist | The 21st Century Teacher
Plurk novellas are emerging — this is very cool. This could be used in writing. You can see how threaded microblogging is DIFFERENT from twitter. I think there is room for both.

WeberTube – Never Lecture in Class Again
This is the video on the “flipped” class structure. Wow!
tags: education, podcasting, edu_trends, all_teachers, bestpractices
Some cool science teachers at necc who have “flipped the classroom” — they record their lectures and make them available on itunes to download. Then, they do “homework” in class w/ the teachers. Listening to the podcast of class is their assignment — the homework is what they do in class. This flipped method had some people talking today in our workshop. So so cool!
This makes so much sense — take the one to many work delivery and make it the assignment — take the work where you need many to many to help one another and have that in the classroom. Can you see class evolving? wow! This makes so much sense.

Vicki, thanks for the Plurknovela link, lots of fun! Been enjoying your St. Louis workshop last 2 days.
Thank you so much for writing such an informative blog Vicki! I am still a relatively new teacher and trying to learn more about emerging technologies. Your blog has been a wonderful resource. The Mixbook site looks awesome! I can think of a lot of great ways to use that with my students. Thanks again for sharing!
The Mixbook site that you linked is great! I think that my elementary students will love it. Is this the best book making site that you have come across in your research? Do you know of any others that are easy to use with elementary school students?
