I really enjoy this information from Silvia tolisano about Mixbook — it is part 7 of an amazing digital storytelling series.
Talking about expanding boundaries and what we need to do.
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!
Here is a page that has an embedded science report that se used docstoc for. This is a great example. From Julie Lindsay’s class.
Amazing wiki portfolio from one of Julie Lindsay’s students. wow!
Look at the science report that she used docstoc to upload.
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!
Leigh Newton director of IT at a school in Baku, Azerbaijan wants to talk about linking his grade 5 classes of about 30 students to others in the world. There is also a PYP (Primary years program) on the flat classroom ning about this. Some interesting conversations are emerging. If you’re interested, join and join the conversation.
Join in the plurknovela. So cool. This is the original one.
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.
This is the video on the “flipped” class structure. Wow!
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.
