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!

THe Digital Natives Debate: A Critical View of the Evidence - Draft - 0 views

  •  
    The paper presents and questions the main claims made about digital natives
    and analyses the nature of the debate itself. We argue that rather than being empirically and theoretically informed, the debate can be likened to an academic form of a 'moral panic'. We propose that a more measured and disinterested approach is now required to investigate 'digital natives' and their implications for education.

Back to the Classroom: The Forum for Education and Democracy - 0 views

  • sparking students’ intellectual curiosity by encouraging teachers to “teach to their passions”
  • Beacon’s freedom from the state Regents examinations in social studies – the result of a hard-earned waiver – allows for a thematic approach and a deep exploration unconstrained by coverage considerations.  
  • All classes will do extensive writing and revision, developing the skill of using evidence to support conclusions.  The students will engage in debates, make presentations, and have varied avenues to demonstrate what they have learned and accomplished.

  • The chance to “make a difference” in young people’s lives is what makes teaching a calling.  But working in a community of learners that prizes real intellectual development and creativity, and having a level of control over what you can do on a daily basis, is what sustains that calling.

  • Making decisions about students, teachers and schools largely on the basis of standardized test scores ultimately is detrimental to the kind of education all young people need.
