Digital Portfolios

Started this discussion. Last reply by Hanna Shekhter Dec 25, 2011. 5 Replies

In general, I wonder why the concept of portfolios in schools has not caught on more. Why aren't more schools keeping student work from the beginning of their educational career until they graduate.…Continue

In light of Matt Richtel's recent article, "A Silicon Valley School That Doesn't Compute," (New York Times, October 22, 2011), I find it confusing how much the education world today seems to push…Continue

Reflections on Educational Technology

Posted on June 8, 2012 at 3:39am 0 Comments

The more that I have learned about Ed Tech, the more I discover how much "stuff" is out there. There is a program for every particular niche and then some. One program does something one way and a second program does seemingly the same thing but slightly differently. It begins to become difficult to sift through after a while.

This is why I believe that when all is said and done we need to make sure not to loose sight of the goal. Our ultimate goal is to use these…


Web 2.0 Tools

Wiki Project Management

Not too long ago Vodcasting was new media. Like many technologies that have hit the scene over the last few years, they come fast and furious. Not every technology makes it (we usually don't even notice the ones that do not) but the ones that do tend to alter the way we get our information and interact with others in our world. Vodcasting is certainly one of those world changing technologies.

It used to be that the majority of our information came from written…
