I'd like to get some input from Social Studies educators, out there, on what you are doing in Web 2.0.  Please share the apps you are using and a little about how you are using them.

Web 2.0 Apps and RtI

Does anyone know if someone has put together a list of RtI interventions that utilize Web 2.0 apps?  It seems to me that if the traditional techniques have not improved reading, it would be valuable to explore taking advantage of Web 2.0 apps as interventions.  Particularly, I would think this would be of value with those in Tier 3.  I'm curious if anyone has any ideas or input on this.

Hi Becky, went and checked out your blog. Some really useful things on there. I am getting so blogged down though with all the wonderful things I am discovering! Hope I come up on your revolving planet: did see a South African flag, but it was from Verwoerdburg and I am from Pietermaritzburg in Kwazulu-Natal. I live at HIlton College (private boys school) but work at Pietermaritzburg Girls High school, a government school; perhaps you could get your kids to Google Earth them and see what SA schools look like?
Best

Getting the same technology for students in specialized classrooms as the gen. ed. classrooms

Hello everyone! I have been in Special Education for more than 34 years.I am currently a retiree who has returned to the classroom and am teaching a high school Autism class. In all my time I have seen many things change, both as a teacher and as an administrator. But the one thing that hasn't changed is equal access to technology and other materials that are given to the general education classrooms. When it comes to deciding what to spend the budget on, we may start out with a "wishlist" but…See More

Equity between schools in the same district

An interesting theme came up while I was interviewing a principal friend of mine. She was discussing how she has begun to feel defeated because  of the new requirement our state has that all students will take the state assessments on line. She was saying that this will simply murder their school performance. Her student population is close to being 100% poverty, there is no parental support at all at home, and they only get computer time in school  a couple times a week due to too few…See More
