Education for the 21st Century: Balancing Content Knowledge with Skills | Britannica Blog - 0 views

  • But these 21st-century skills require deep understanding of subject matter, a fact that these reports acknowledge, albeit briefly.
    • Jill Zielinski
       
      21st Century Skills can not be taught in isolation, there needs to be rich content involved in the development of critical thinking and analyzing information. The use of Web 2.0 tools to complete the integration is how all the pieces of the puzzle fit together.

    This is wonderful! I read the "Create the Blog". It looks user friendly. I want to try it this weekend when I have some uninterrupted time to learn how to Blog.
  •  
    I am using blogger with my 8th graders. I'm subscribed to their blogs through RSS on my Google Reader account so when they update their work, I can easily see it - and track how often and to what extent they are making progress on assignments. Way better than grading papers! I'm working up to using Diigo as a way to post private comments to students about their work posted on their blogs - another cool option.
  •  
    This site allows you to set up your own blog. This can be used for personal or profressional purposes. When I took a trip to Europe this summer, I used it to share the places we visited and the things we did. Wonderful tool.

    Audacity is an awesome (and free) tool for basic recording, editing, and playback. I use it to record my choral rehearsals, record individual singers during private lessons, and create practice tracks that can be posted online so students can learn and/or reinforce their part in a piece of music we are rehearsing in class. The interface is relatively simple and the options for the music classroom (or even the general education classroom) are numerous!

    Free Wiki space for educators.
  •  
    I feel that wikispaces offers more options for free than other online blog/wiki applications. I am able to host more pages and users than in PBWorks. Permissions can be set independently by page. These options are important to me since I am trying to build more collaboration of students across grade levels. I could delete student pages when they leave me to go to the high school, but isn't it way cooler that their info and account lives on so they can still participate? With the easy management tools, I can easily make sure everyone's contributions are on the "up and up". ;)
  •  
    Want to encourage online collaboration? Look no further than Wikispaces. This is just one of the line wikis which allow the public or only members to collaborate together.

    A colleague has used this site to have students create review materials for AP exams and I am going to try it this year with my AP Psychology class.

Web 2.0-savvy teachers testing old assumptions - CNN.com - 0 views

  • Web 2.0 technologies in particular have found a receptive audience among educators. Many use blogs to share ideas on teaching and technology, some of which might surprise students.

  •  
    Teachers utilizing Web 2.0 tech to broaden lessons and teaching techniques.
  •  
    The bandwagon effect is something I would be concerned about with Web 2.0 technology. Just because a technology is available doesn't mean that it is the best way to provide instruction. The article mentions that Google Earth sometimes is no better than just pointing at a globe. Displaying the same old tired content on a television screen doesn't improve it. Kids will get just as bored with garbage on a computer screen as on the printed page.
