  •  
    Interesting blog post on use of tablets - specifically iPad - in schools. More than the blog post (which I thought was smug), I found the comments more informative.

    I can see where several of his arguments are coming from, but I don't necessarily agree with completely banning Wikipedia from schools.

Article on Rocketship and the Importance of Relationships - 4 views

  •  
    Nice example of a blended learning environment that also values the human element
  •  
    "The Internet certainly holds the prospect of tapping into the vast store of knowledge and teaching talent that resides beyond the schoolhouse door, addressing students' varying interests and needs more fully and efficiently. But while Rocketship attracts a steady flow of visitors hoping to glimpse education's high-tech future, I came away from my own pilgrimage to Discovery Prep believing that the school's success proves the opposite point: the younger and more disadvantaged students are, the more they need adults supporting them in many different ways day in and day out--the more they need school to be a place rather than merely a process."

    Some interesting PBS initiatives in schools. They also have some good stats on teachers and technology (not sure how much is reflected in the infographic I posted earlier).

    It looks like this argument and vision has a lot of common ground with the NETP. I'm curious to read the book and see what the principal differences are.

Freetown school district banking on technology - Fall River, MA - The Herald News - 2 views

  •  
    A couple months back Prof. Dede said a change in education was necessary because the status quo was facing collapse. We're see these kinds of decisions all over the country in the past few weeks. I wonder if we're seeing the change.

k12wiki - Social Networking Acceptable Use - 0 views

  •  
    Many of the schools with which I come in to contact- including mine- reinvent the wheel when it comes to acceptable use policy at great expense of time and often little influence of "best practice." Why not make use of the good work and attention that has been deliberated by other educators who have already wrestled through the problem.

Tangible Steps Toward Tomorrow (online version) - W.K. Kellogg Foundation - 2 views

  •  
    "This publication, developed by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation in collaboration with IDEO, details a human-centered approach to evolving the system of early education for the needs and possibilities of the 21st century." - The ideas presented in this publication are interesting, but I found the presentation of information particularly compelling.

Should the School Day Be Longer? - Room for Debate - NYTimes.com - 1 views

  •  
    "When and where does it make sense to institute a longer school day, and how should it be designed?"
  •  
    I think a case can be made for structuring school hours flexibly, to accommodate those who engage in sports and other extra currlicular activities and also those who desire or need additional academic learning time.
  •  
    From my own experience, using technology was an effective way to maintain student engagement during a longer day. As a sped teacher, I offered students the opportunity to do an extra online-based reading intervention if they came to school early. I had a surprising number of students come - almost every single day. Additionally, using technology during afternoon tutoring sessions helped my students stay on-task. I think if the standard school day was to be extended, putting a substantial focus on technology would be both an effective learning tool and a good way to help prevent students from burning out by the last bell.
