    • Voic e s from th e S c h oolh ous e What was school like for students who graduated from high school more than 65 years ago? Students in Erin McGuyer’s technology classes at HTMS found out in a project-based learning activity that documented some of the education history of the Trussville community. The project relies on a web-based wiki, “Voices from the Schoolhouse,” to serve as the central repository for the students’ work products, including still photos, movies, and podcasts of the student-led interviews. Although the wiki is still a work in progress (which is, after all, the idea behind wikis!), there’s already plenty to hear and see at the site, including selected pages from the very first HTHS Yearbook (circa 1940). Wiki address – http://voicesfromtheschoolhouse.wikispaces.com
    • Live from Ne w Y ork Anita and Niki , HTMS teachers, spent a week in New York City learning more about the Stock Exchange. While in New York, students were able to keep connected with their teachers through a discussion board on their websites. On Thursday, students spent about 15 minutes talking live with their teachers through Skype. Anita and Niki talked briefly about their trip so far and then answered questions by several students. Visit http://snipurl.com/livefromny to listen to their conversation.
    • S tude nt Dis c us s ion G roups B e a t th e C la s s room C loc k Imagine high school students eager to discuss current affairs and other weighty topics with their teachers and fellow classmates – so eager, in fact, that they’re willing to give up some of their off-school hours for the chance. It’s all part of an ongoing, cross-curricular activity devised by Hewitt-Trussville High School teachers Jennifer Cardwell (English) and Tim Shull (History) that combines writing, civic literacy, social networking and student opinion-gathering into something that’s not quite homework—and not quite schoolwork, either.
    • WP IN, B roa dc a s ting Auth e ntic Le a rning Every morning at 8:05 AM, the news anchors of WPIN-TV at Paine Intermediate straighten their notes, check their hair, and then stare directly into the camera lens as the director prepares to give the “On the Air” hand signal. Behind the cameras the show’s producer bustles about, checking to see that everyone on the crew is ready at the controls of sound boards and other complicated-looking equipment. “WPIN really says something about what kids can do when we give them the chance,” Kristi Stacks, sponsor of WPIN, believes. “As teachers who aren’t always comfortable with technology, we need to ask ourselves whether we’re hesitating because we aren’t sure they’re ready – or we aren’t sure we’re ready.”
    • A P rinc ipa l’s B log G e ts Lots of Hits from S tude nts The Principal’s Blog at Hewitt-Trussville Middle School averages dozens of comments about each posted entry, and the vast majority come from the middle school’s own student body. Williams received 89 responses when she asked students to share their ideas about improving the middle school schedule. Bubba said he liked the school’s seven-period schedule but “I would also like to have maybe one more elective.” Morgan identified a problem and offered a specific remedy: “One thing…I would want to change is how long we have between classes. Some people are coming from PE and have to be at the end of the 8th grade hall and are late. We do have time to get from PE to a class, but I’m pretty sure we don’t want to run to class. Also, it’s pretty difficult to go to the bathroom between periods. I think it would be a good idea to add one more minute and make it five instead of four minutes.” “A lot of my attitude about it is that if I learn how to use these tools, then it’s easier for me to expect the teachers to learn to do it, too. And because our blog is public, students, parents and the community can all see that we can learn together – that learning is a group enterprise,” says Williams.
    • P re pa ring Te a c h e rs for th e 21 s t C e ntury Strategic planning must take place in order to develop teachers who can teach students that are living and will be working utilizing 21st Century Skills. There is not a quick one day workshop to meet these needs. The focus of training is not technology, but the curriculum. Technology enables the teachers and students to take learning to a higher level by collaborating, creating and sharing not only with students in the classroom but from any where in the world.
    • Trus s ville E duc a tiona l Te c h nolog y C onfe re nc e In order to provide a rich technology environment for our faculty and staff, the Trussville Educational Technology Conference , http://snipurl.com/tetc2007, was created. The objectives are to support teachers as they utilize 21st Century tools to design engaging lessons that support the curriculum. Each year, teachers spend time learning not only from educators in Trussville using 21st Century tools but also from around the world connecting with presenters from the K12 Online Conference, http://k12onlineconference.org . Teachers are learning how to extend the classroom conversation with blogs, utilize digital stories, create podcasts, communicate with others from around the world using Skype, collaborate with wikis and much more!
