Raise Your Hands (Techlearning blog) - 0 views

  • Thus, this article isn't another push for organizations to embrace a collaborative learning culture. It is a push for teachers to stop waiting for the organization and become a collaborative professional learner by changing fundamental behaviors inhibiting this and embracing action items that will allow it to happen.

      This is like the "skunkworks" idea in R&D divisions of big companies. Employees work together on their own time, sometimes secretly, to develop product ideas. if the manager finds out, he might turn a blind eye as long as it doesn't interfere with regular work. Some more enlightened companies build in time for this kind of entrepreneurial behavior.
  • The number one skill that teachers will need is to be team-based, collegial, sharing their knowledge and wisdom.

      A neat feature is to track who is linking to a particular site. In the search box, type and search. The results will tell you what websites are out there that link directly to the on in question. Great for validating a website.

Safer Children in a Byron World | Aylesbury LIFE - 0 views

  • "Safer Children in a Digital World", requested by UK PM
  • a sudden outbreak of common sense.
  • To give you a flavour I quote: "At a public swimming pool we have gates, put up signs, have lifeguards and shallow ends, but we also teach children how to swim." Oh, so we don't drain the swimming pool of water, then?!
    This is just a flier introducing report requested by UK PM and authored by child psychologist. The report itself is quite long -- I dare say I will blog again when I have read it.
    Just blogged this: a new UK perspective on child safety online more objective than most -- a sudden outbreak of common sense even -- let us hope it prevails
