  • We are currently in a technology revolution in education. But it’s not what you think. It’s not the technology itself. The real revolution is the fact that students have access to technologies outside of school.

    Here's the problem. A study of students conducted last year found a majority of forth and fifth graders spend 3 to 6 hours a day on social media unsupervised at home. They play with Myspace, Facebook and all the "sharp scissors" collaborative technology out there. Heck even in 3rd grade there are early adopters in each class using MySpace and collaborating with folks they don't know in their gaming sites. Webkins starts them off at an early age. Yes, that's right, Webkins targets kids with stuffed animals and with each animal they get a login for a social networking site.

    Open Education, as it is currently defined, is the use of free and collaborative technologies in education.
    Fraught with issues about safety, stability which are brought about by misunderstanding and fear, practitioners and proponents of Open Education have a rough row to hoe.
    Blogs, wikis, free media production software, sites allowing web pages to be built with little or no effort are making things easier to do.

  • First there was the printing press.
    Telegraph and telephone for conversations
    Recordings and Movies for store-and-forward
    Radio and Television Broadcast one-to-many of the same message.
    Technologies that were good at creating groups were not good at creating conversations, and the technologies for having conversations were not good at creating groups.
    Internet has native support for Groups and Individual Conversations.
    One-to-One, One-To-Many, only the internet is Many-to-Many.
    Media is less just a source of information, as it is a way of organization a site of coordination, because groups can gather around a piece of media and talk about it.
    Consumers are producers, not just the audience.

  • In the K-5 environment, collaboration must be managed.

    The authentic publishing environment can be provided, but without incoming communication.
    Turn off your computer or monitor if you see something that bothers you.
    Porn Shui - Diablo Cody, screen writer for Little Miss sunshine

  • The linear “secret” writing process must be replaced with a non-linear content development process which includes world-wide publishing, or else our lessons will not be relevant to students.
