Castlemaine, Shanghai, Colorado

What could these three diverse places, a small town in country Australia, a large international city in China, and a mountainous state the US, possibly have in common?

I must say, when I started dipping my toes into the global education water, I had my doubts. It's not that I thought global education wasn't worthwhile... I thought of it as a "nice to have" rather than an essential part of my classroom. Like the best discoveries in life, the benefits of connecting globally have…

Authentic Audience

The Grade 5/6 students at Castlemaine North recently returned from Sovereign Hill, and upon their return, wrote "Top Ten Tips for Sovereign Hill Camp". One student wrote hers on the Writers' Club. As I have written in a previous post, all blog posts on the Writers' Club get put out to the twittersphere. Somehow, Sovereign Hill caught a…

Dos objetivos, dos contenidos y múltiples escenarios

Luchar contra la estructura actual de las escuelas sería tan chiflado como batallar contra los molinos de viento o El Morro de San Juan. Pero sí podemos reducir los períodos de asistencia a clase, cerrar algunas escuelas, modificar el contenido curricular y reestructurar las salas de clase... CONTINÚA>>

Ownership

This photo is of my brother and I in 1994. This is our first car, which we shared ownership over. If you can believe it, I'm the guy on the left! The colour of the car, if you're interested, is "Cypress Metallic Green".

If there's one thing I've been acutely aware of since working with teachers, it's making sure I don't rob teachers of a sense of ownership. I think this is because I know how I…

TIC,s sin componendas

No se justifican  miles y miles de $ o € en edificios deslumbrantes con equipo caro (las TIC son más eficientes fuera que dentro de la escuela), ni cientos de horas en adiestramientos para trabajar con TIC. CONTINÚA>>

Educación, la justa perspectiva y el lugar adecuado

 Las Nuevas tecnologías nos han permitido salirnos de los entornos caros y limitantes (de las escuelas) y en-rutar (re-enviar) el conocimiento que encontramos a la vera del camino recorrido. El Entorno más caro es el presencial, allá cada cuál. Aquellos educadores que a estas alturas se entretienen reflexionando sobre las TIC (Si las usan o no, cómo, para qué y dónde las usan…),…

Somos el producto de Facebook y Twitter

Maestros y estudiantes somos presa fácil y deseada de Facebook y Twitter. Los administradores de las redes sociales no escatiman medios y recursos para que la presa fácil (maestro y estudiante) y los clientes (empresas que pagan por los datos y anuncios) las deseen y los necesiten, como suspirantes adictos. CONTINÚA>>

The Walled Garden

The big event in the past week or so in my life has been the first birthday of my daughter. We decided to have a party in our backyard, which necessitated much gardening. I am not much of a fan of gardening (I'd replace the lot with concrete if it were up to me!) but even I can appreciate the result. I love our back yard - green, lush, and with a sense of privacy.

A garden…

¡Hostos!. La escuela está peluda

 El maestro, antes que nada, es "un educador de la conciencia infantil y juvenil”  y la escuela un "fundamento de moral", insitía Hostos. La educación y el desarrollo de la conciencia (moral), rige y tiene prioridad a la educuación de la razón, la voluntad, el sentimiento y de la estética. Tal vez Hostos no lo aceptaría, pero la voluntad y el sentimiento son más afines a la ética que a la razón y a la estética. …
