The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

We've been sharing The I.D.E.A. Room for the better part of a week now (5 days) and many people have shown their support of our proposal. So, we're wondering if you, the EduPLN would take the time to visit HP EdTech Innovators Award site visit the other proposals and take a look at our I.D.E.A. Room proposal as well.  There's a bunch of proposals up on the site, but we hope you'll support our I.D.E.A. as we feel it really meets the needs of students and teachers today as well as extends what is possible in our schools in order to create learning communities that construct, solve problems and educate. 

Leave us a comment on the I.D.E.A. Room page on the HP EdTech Innovators Award site or one here in the EduPLN. 

Thanks for your time and support!

Methods: Tradition vs. Relevance

This morning I read a post from a higher education educator about the negative effects of Tech in lectures. The author was perplexed when he realized a great many students in his lecture hall were paying attention to Facebook, or attending to email during the course of a two-hour lecture. His school chose to ban tech devices from the lecture hall. Additionally, students were required to use nametags, so that the lecturer could address individual students with questions during the lecture. This…See More
