I mentioned last night that Larry Cuban is working on a follow-up to the article that we read for last night. Here are the two links to his blog posts on the topic:
- Computer Use in a High School (1999-2010): Progress or Regress?
- Progress or Regress at Los Montanas, Part 2
Also, I’ve compiled a list of Prezi resources, including a few by teachers and about teaching in a classroom:
Prezi would be a great tool with which to remix your philosophy statement (hint hint). I also forgot to mention that Prezi has a “Meeting” mode, which allows people (students, teachers, etc.) to collaborate together on a Prezi. I made sure to include a few examples and tutorials on how this works in the resources. I’ve also set up my Prezi from last night (http://prezi.com/iowpcwnj5cij/session-5-negotiating-the-place-of-technology/) so that you can make a copy of it and see how I put it together.
Lastly, I thought some of you might be interested in this interview tonight (February 22), which is with John Seely Brown, who wrote the introduction to the Collins and Halverson book:
These interviews are usually pretty interesting, and the recording of it will be available in a day or two.
Nice job in class last night, and may the force be with you.
