Education Fast Forward (#eff6 on Twitter) is a worldwide education and Student Learner Voice movement I’ve been following and sharing with students, educators and administrators.
About 10 years ago my principal and friend talked about a day when we wouldn’t warehouse students beyond a certain age, because tiny, embedded chips would be all they needed for continued learning.
I couldn’t think of a better device than one of these interactive tables used as a therapeutic meeting place for helping students deal with difficult times.
Arthur C. Clarke may have said it best, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” I believe in Magic!
I remember lockdown experiences with my own students in Newtown, CT. Crowding all my students into the safest, out of sight, place in my rooms—and locking the doors.
SIIA's 2012 Ed Tech Business Forum featured new entrepreneurs willing to share their ideas and dreams—looking for support and backing in order to launch the next, best education solution
It isn’t about any one type of technology, but it is about how teaching needs to change in order to involve all students—and not just a few each class time—and outside.
With 25% of consumers choosing tablets, and with that number rising daily, it’s not surprising schools are looking at the Android route, too.
Like many people on the East Coast, I’ve had a cold taste of the helplessness one feels during and after a major and crippling storm
When students have the idea of self-worth, there are no boundaries—and that feeling carries over to other classrooms, the entire school environment, and to life.
It was a pleasure catching up with Dr. Chris Dede, Harvard’s Timothy Wirth Professor of Learning Technology, in Washington, D.C.
Students and teachers at John Adams Middle School in Edison, New Jersey use interactive Promethean education technology to enhance learning.
In Washington, D.C., I had the chance to talk with Julie Evans of Project Tomorrow about teaching with wireless technology.
The new Dell Latitude 10 Tablet was waiting for me. Prying it out of the hands of Dell’s master of product planning, Tim Gee, was a challenge–it was his baby.
Nope, looks like an Android 4.0 tablet will nestle alongside Buzz Lightyear and Woody at Toys “R” Us stores as well as online at http://www.toysrus.com/.
My back to school posts have usually been helpful lists, things to do, and pep talks for new teachers, but recently I’ve been thinking that new principals and administrators need similar pep talks.
I know that everyone will be talking about Sally Ride as the first American woman in space, but I’m thinking many girls found science, math, and space interesting because of her.
I used to coach all my students about caution on the Internet by saying, “Not everyone is as nice as you.”
I think sometimes as we get older, we become more cautious, think great ideas, and then decide not to share, or we become one-sided in our views.
