PTA launches back to school webcasts for parents - 0 views

  •  
    National PTA (the parents organization for public school parents in the US) has launched a webcast to communicate with parents.

    Not sure where the podcast is, but it is probably linked here. It looks like a video. (It would be great to also rip the audio off and link as a podcast too, I think parents would find it useful.)

    One thing this does do is legitimize the webcast for parents. You can say "Look parents, PTA is webcasting, it must not be evil." For the use of this tool, I applaud PTA.

    I haven't listened to the webcast yet. Hope they turn it into to a podcast as my screentime is limited, but listen to things as I wash dishes and cook dinner (a nightly happening.)

    Tools are emerging to move content to student cell phones.
  •  
    Interested to see this software. Hope to get a copy and see how it works with my students.

    I have no doubt that moving content to mobile devices is going to be an incredibly useful thing to be able to do in the coming years. Do it now or do it later?

    How about 1:1 cell phone schools instead of laptops.

Mobile Apps: Free Alternatives to Replace Jott's Functions - 0 views

  •  
    Mobile Apps to replace Jott's functionality.
  •  
    A reader named Liesl send in this great article from LifeHacker about the alternatives to Jott. Actually, after reading this, there really isn't an alternative to Jott without a lot of elbow grease. I may be coughing up the $3.95 a month. I just really use it.

    However, I'm going to email them. I NEED A FAMILY PLAN! I have my children using Jott on their cell phones but they use it very infrequently. I should be able to have some sort of family plan for our situation.

New World Notes: Generation Why: Is The Second Life Experience Fundamentally Gen X-Cent... - 0 views

  •  
    Discussion of why Generation X is inundating Second Life and why Gen Y is so underrepresented.

    I will say that my students LOVE Second Life, but you also have to remember that I teach students who, for the most part, grew up playing outside and have engaged in free play all of their lives. Perhaps this is also a function of the presence of free play in the lives of children. How many Gen Y kids truly had free play as part of their childhood? We've sort of structured and organized everything for them in many cases.

Mr Rowland's Physical Education Posterous! - I wouldn't say I was the best teacher in t... - 0 views

  •  
    Example of a teacher posterous blog - instead of teaching them how to blog, just let them use their email!
  •  
    Doug Belshaw is encouraging his teachers to use posterous to communicate to students and parents. Literally, they send an e-mail to posterous and it creates a blog automatically for them. This is an example of a PE teacher.

    Now this is cool. DON'T teach teachers how to blog - use something they already know, email and just have them email it instead. Now how is that for a great idea!
