Empowering middle schools through technology - Ideablob: where ideas grow - 0 views

  •  
    In ten years, modern education will have fully integrated new classroom media: video, online collaboration, and other web tools. We hope to pioneer a web tool that is a platform for this new media, bringing the power of the web to students, teachers, and parents in a secure, innovative environment. Our idea is a response to problems in schools that we have identified through primary research and user involvement. The way students, parents and teachers interact and learn in middle schools has many opportunities for growth and improvement. Here is one example:Research shows that in the last ten years the way people obtain and digest information has changed, incorporating tools like the web. Unfortunately, the classroom environment has not kept pace with this aggressive expansion of technology as a social, educational and communication tool. We hope to provide the tools to solve this and other problems in the middle school context. Read more at AlightLearning.com

My top ten tools for 2011 | School 2.0 in SA - 29 views

  •  
    "Every year Jane Hart (can't wait to meet her LIVE at the schoolnetsa11 conference) asks us to create our list of top 10 tools and every year it is the most difficult task that I have to do. As an educational technologist I use many tools on a daily basis as well as try out new tools to see how we can use it for teaching and learning. So choosing just 10 tools remains a challenge for me!"

ED-451 Technology Tools Assessment: ED-451 Technology Tools Assessment - 0 views

  • This semester I have been tasked to assess eight technology tools that I have utilized in my audio and visual education class. The tools that I will assess are Moodle, Firefox, NiceNet, Del.icio.us, Google Suites, Ning, Yahoo 360, and Jing. The last tool that I will be assessing was not required for this class, but I chose to assess it because I only learned of and used this tool while completing a different assignment in this class.

Noteflight - Sign In - 1 views

  •  
    We built Noteflight because we looked at where software is today, and saw that applications for writing music were stuck in the past. We wanted to accomplish a few important goals: Make it easy to create and share written music online. People who make music -- amateurs and professionals, students and teachers -- want to share that music with others, sooner or later. But most software for working with notated music treats the Internet as an afterthought: it's geared to saving your music on your own computer's hard disk, not to sharing your music with other people. It's painful to share musical scores online today, and as software inventors, we knew how much better it could be. People expect to be able to do their creative work wherever they go, and a crop of new browser-based applications make it incredibly easy to create and publish word-processing documents or spreadsheets online. We feel musical documents should be just as accessible. Empower developers to build a new world of musical and educational applications. Applications today should be not only powerful tools, but building blocks that can be combined in ways that their creators have never foreseen. A truly powerful musical application should be extensible without having to open it up and change the code. Adding new instruments and symbols, or embedding in a page and building new kinds of connections with other content -- all of these things should be possible. A great tool lets creative people not only use its built-in capabilities, but extend them and freely reorganize them in new ways. As Bertrand Meyer, a pioneer of software thinking, once put it: "Real systems have no top". Encourage a vibrant community of users by keeping the basics free. Music notation software vendors continue to charge high prices for boxed software, CD and DVD distribution media, and printed manuals. Then once you buy something, you're basically stuck with it until the next major upgrade cycle comes around, at which point you pa

Educational Jargon Generator - 7 views

  •  
    This fine academic tool was designed to assist in the writing of reports, grant applications, and other documents related to public schools. I believe that it will be particularly useful for people involved in writing reports for WASC accreditation. Amaze your colleagues with finely crafted phrases of educational nonsense! The javascript code is adapted from Dack.com's Web Economy BS Generator. I would be remiss if I did not thank my district's Professional Development staff for introducing me to many of these gems.
