The personal learning network for educators
This week there is a large conference, called ISTE, going on in California, the topic of which is education and technology. Someone I know is there (he teaches at a popular school in LA which shall remain nameless), and has been blogging about his experience at the conference. I have been asking myself; shouldn’t I be there? My first thought was, of course I should! Education and technology are my specialty and my passion! How could I miss this? I kicked myself a few times for good…Continue

Textbooks are excessively expensive but still students should need to have their own textbooks. Textbooks are students’ must-have for college. It is hard to perform well in your studies without them. The question is, are you willing to pay a hundred bucks for every…

Students are now opting to not just keep buying new books for school. There is now a market for students wanting to buy used books, and older students who want to make money by selling their old ones. Thus, the textbook buyback system is becoming popular. With online bookstores…

I am a newcomer to the Educator's PLN, and the reason I decided to join is that building a PLN without the help of this website is overwhelming. After spinning my wheels for a few months, I've decided to come here and meet up with other educators and share ideas.
I'm a frustrated teacher in a large suburban Texas high school (3100 students). I teach Graphic Design and Illustration and I am also embarking on a new job as a co-instructional technologist. What I'd like to know is what…Continue

The team was made up of four students who competed against two other teams, answering various questions about the sciences, history, English, math and the arts. I remember being quite intimidated at first with the visual art questions. Various pictures would be presented to the team members from famous artists, and the…Continue

On the iPad we are spoilt for choice, many are free ... if you are looking for a suggestion on where to start then download Educreation (free) ... it is similar to…Continue

First ... this is my first Blog. I'm not a "newbie" at this technology stuff. I've been on the cutting (and sometimes bleeding) edge of technology since I first started teaching with a Radio Shack computer in my first physics and biology classes in 1977! I was one of the first to use computers in my school for grades, the first to have students…Continue
