Exploring NETS: Did you know there are National Education Technology Standards?

With the dramatic advancements in technology over the last decade, classroom-based technologies have exploded throughout education. However, in many districts, technology is often taken for granted. That is not to say that teachers and students do not appreciate the technology within their schools. Both teachers and students use technology in schools everyday, but often focused instruction in the appropriate use of technology is simply not the intended goal for educators. For many teachers, classroom and lab technologies are leveraged to […]

EdReach Show #27: We Plus One ISTE

ISTE has come and it has gone, but it was a grand time for all. Today’s show, besides, of course, talking about the possible education implications about Google Plus, we give our ISTE reflections, and pore through three segments of Chris Lehmann’s wonderful keynote. We were all taken aback at the powerful positive reaction following Chris’ speech, which, quite frankly doesn’t get much better. For ISTE, under such a microscope, educators have in the past tended to be quite critical, […]

Day 2: ISTE Liveblog from EdReach

Well, the keynote from yesterday was not quite what we expected (getting booted, and all), but the ScribbleLive blog, we’ve found is a great way to view the #ISTE11 hashtag, with some added components for sharing like webcam comments. As you can see, it’s clean and updates smoothly. It also adds images that people are posting directly into the stream. Today, we’ll be tweeting out and sharing, but, of course you’ll be adding to the experience. If you want the […]

As for the conference, numerous ideas were shared about Khan Academy, Bring Your Own Device, and the state of education in the news media. Good to see that the TechCrunch spillover (Desmos.com) is finally finding its way […]
