Friday Fun with Animoto

I read about Animoto on Ewan McIntosh’s blog this morning. If you haven’t ever checked out his blog, you should.

CNET – Kids Say Email is Dead

When I read this article and the corresponding comments on CNET News I had to laugh. It is just another example of the technology divide that exists between teachers and students.

YouTube-CNN Debates

Sometimes I really wish I didn’t teach science. Whenever election season draws near I start thinking, “Hmm….it would be really cool to teach social studies.” Perhaps it is because I was once a staffer in the California State Assembly or perhaps it is because I can see all of the potential uses of technology as […]

This would be an example of when I am probably the last person to find out about something. Yesterday while reading through my daily dose of the Blogosphere I saw a post about Pageflakes. This free online product is a website that collects various RSS feeds to create a unique homepage for individual students. The […]
