Designing an Open Online Teacher Academy -- Part 2
March 19, 2009
Week 2 of figuring out how to design an online teacher academy.
We're starting to nail down a goal for this academy:
The goal of this experience is to:
1. Teach online tools in the context of teaching and learning
2. Creating online community to model and sustain this learning
*Please not that these are in draft form.
This online teacher academy starts by walking its participants through some basic online tools while building a community, and creates a structure for the participants to create and document new work thus leaving a legacy for the next generation of learners.

Wendy Drexler on the Networked Student
February 12, 2009
Are your students collecting RSS feeds in Google Reader, bookmarking sites as a group in Delicious, blogging, interviewing content area experts they found through Google Scholar, and teaching the section of the course for which they are responsible? Wendy Drexler's students are doing all of this. This is a must listen for those of us who dream of the day when education is a more active, accountable process for students and teachers.
