I’m in my third year teaching English in a classroom with a cart of ten netbooks running Windows XP. I am so grateful to have them, and my students use them at least every other day.

I have been asked by my school district to be a part of a 1:1 task force. We are moving forward and laying a plan of implementation. EdReach has been a big help for gathering information and there are many articles on EdReach that have been quite helpful.
On Episode 33 of EdGamer we take on the daunting task of updating the American educational system. The two amazing articles from this week’s show give great recommendations on what needs to be done.

This week is the return of Razor’s Ed after a long hiatus. Focus of this show is the rollout of almost 500 iPads to students in grades six through twelve, and on what has made this rollout a unique and successful experience, in particular the administration, community, teachers and infrastructure. The students are in on the act, too (as they should be).
