Great speech by Ken Robinson at TED Feb 10
He talks about starting anew and challenging the existing understanding and prevailing understanding about education and although this isn't comfortable, that we should disenthrall ourselves.
"The dogmas of the quiet past, are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew. We must disenthrall… Continue

I am writing a conference paper and would like to harvest the collective mind of the social web for some constructive comments - this is just a small portion of one page. Don´t want to exceed the 10000 word policy :)
Higher Education and educational policies are under scrutiny as we move forward into the 21st century. The traditional higher educational system, with it universities as the hub of knowledge, is under revision, less from the universities them self’s but more from a… Continue

Now there's a loaded word in education. What is data? Well, I think data is a tool (one of many) that can be used to assess where a student is in relation to his/her academic growth. It can be read well and tell a lot about a student, but it can also be misinterpreted. Data often gives educators and administrators a good place to start in assessing what a child needs.
But it can't end there (in my opinion). Isn't teacher… Continue

This will be a rather short post...
I have decided to get away from the traditional Power Point presentation that I have been inflicting on my students in Chemistry 1. I am going to give a visual approach a try through an application called mind42. Here's my first published mind map
. I want to actually use this resource to assist my students in making connections between concepts as well as to turn their informal study into an active learning… Continue

When I explain the concept behind the Professional Networked Learning Collaborative one of the biggest misconceptions I have to overcome is educators’ understanding of how a network is different than just searching the Internet. Some educators ask,… Continue

Members represent most countries, disciplines, functions, and levels to create a global perspective on teaching and learning, i.e., the multifaceted teaching-learning process that… Continue

This week through my technology class we worked on making movies with web-based programs and the movie programs with Windows and Macs. I made my first movie using a Mac...it was an experience.
First of all I am a PC User...always have been...therefore I have only recently grown more accustomed to Macs (not sure if I will ever reach the fully accustomed area). After reading the directions and watching a demo...how hard could it be?? Well truthfully, it is not that difficult if you know… Continue

As I have been pushing through these last couple week of my semester here at UT I have had assignment on top of assignment for my education classes due. Of course, the stress of classes combined with all the little stresses of life through these last weeks leads one to sometimes question what am I doing all this work for?? Will it really make a difference, or am I just cranking out one assignment after another just to mark that off on my planner? After reading this article about happenings in… Continue

I have an issue regarding my sources - since I am doing my PhD I have a desktop full of papers and documents, videos and slide-shows and audio lectures to name a few. In the "old" days one used a file system on paper cards with names of references. Now i have a big-old folder on my desktop called references and in it over a 100 folders with different names on them - see I now where the references are, it is finding the relevant one when I need them.
When I find a reference (any media… Continue
