youth voices rock!

I just attended the iEarn Adobe Youth Voices session - highlighting voices from US, Brazil, Romania, South Africa & Uganda. I think empowering kids to share their voices and ideas for changing the world is one of the most important things we can do for them. 

It was so interesting to hear perspectives from other countries, especially somewhere like Romania…

Searching for a presentation?

Hi, I just made a huge discovery.  If you are looking for the time of a certain presenter, you can use the search feature in Google calendar.  This is assuming you've loaded the conference schedule into your Google calendar.  Type the person's name in the Search box and you'll find the event time for your time zone.  I'm kicking myself that I didn't think of this earlier.  Perhaps there are others out there searching for presentation times like me.

General thoughts on who owns the learning in an online learning context

The traditional view of teaching and learning places the tutor at the centre of all knowledge distribution, with the students accepting all that is said and done passively, as is found in the traditional lecture.  The tutor owns the learning; the students do not.  If the students go and investigate the information further that is up to them but they view the tutor as the first point of all information…

I'm changing, are you?

I didn't really know what to expect from this conference, but now I think I'm one of the luckiest people on the planet to have found out about it and then actually decided to participate. You know the old adage, "you get what you pay for", which follows closely on the heels of "nothing in life is free". What you pay for this conference is time and what you get are an amazing array of ideas, tools and contacts. But there is another cost as well and that's the cost of knowledge - of learning…

Fash Protests, Flash Events and "Flash Learning"

While the old guard of indexed based hierarchical industrial based classrooms keep perseverating on testing and structured curriculum, the vast world outside of the colonial classroom learns via relational collaborative Internet that test by the impact ideas and knowledge have on the real world.

While Dewey and democratic learning are the reality of how we learn and leverage the global Internet for each moment living on our planet.

Are the curriculum and methods of STEM, SCORM,…

Technology enabled learning: who owns the learning?

The opening keynote presentation was very useful in provoking thoughts and debate regarding who owns learning.  This question is important particularly in higher education, where students are encouraged to manage their own learning.  Online technologies have enabled learner participation to progress from passive to immersive.  Technologies have allowed students to collaborate, interact and communicate with other students that is not determined through location or the time that they…

Brief discussion about new media and education

In today´s society it is impossible to think about life without the influence of technology. We live in the age of digital culture, and are connected by many different types of devices, such as mobile phones, computers, television and an increasing range of new products; I could go on and on.  However this begs the question: what is the impact of this new era in our life style? What changes will result from our…

flipping out

I'm flipping out, but in a good way, over Alan November's keynote - Leadership: Managing the Transition.  Why am I so excited?  He put into words what I have been feeling for some time about where education should be heading.  Where's that?  Alan November suggests that maybe "student knowledge is where the action is."   Why's that?  Alan found that every time he showed student tutorials to students and asked them what they thought, they say "our teachers know too much, our teachers explains…

Technology doesn't make you a good teacher

*Teaching makes you a good teacher.

The paucity of people with an interest in education who actually understand the role of technology in schools was highlighted for me by this article in the age, tweeted by marcellinusb.

Now I'm sure these people quoted in the article are very smart people, but I'm…

A tale of three cities - Lahore, Guadalajara, Castlemaine

What do these three places have in common? At first glance, almost nothing - situated on three different continents, a small town and two large cities, three languages, two religions (at least)... yet all three schools share our Writers' club, and this week we at Castlemaine North Skyped with Lahore and Guadalajara as a way of introduction.…
