EdTechWeekly #151 January 24, 2010
Without Dave or Jen, John & Jeff recruit participants from the chat room to join in for an easy going, no pressure EdTechSomething. Thanks to Gary, Cathy, Sue, Leonard, & Sheila
This week we started our conversation with a discussion about what educators can do to connect with Haitians and support efforts in Haiti. This conversation turned into a plan. We created a wiki for educators in wikispaces. Please come see what we've created and join in with your class. http://kids4haiti.wikispaces.com/
This week, Sheila and Lisa were joined by Amanda Marrinan to discuss the topic of dealing with adults who say or do inept things in front of children. Who is responsible for saying something: the teacher who overhears, the children, or the administration? Maria Knee was missed this week but was well represented by Amanda, who graciously stayed up very late in Australia to join us.
What inspries you? What makes your journey great? Sheila, Maria and Lisa and the folks in the chat room respond to the Guilding Stars poster by Peter Reynolds and share who and what inspires them. Sheila also talked about the Earthbridges echo events she did with her students.
This week, we focused on the haves and have-nots of education and technology. We discussed those who have technology vs. those who have very limited technology, as well as those that have supportive administration vs. those without.
