Slides from Tom Daccord's Assessment 2.0 BLC12 Presentation

I was so lucky to see and hear Tom not only at Punahou Lab School but also at BLC12. What resonates with the Assessment 2.0 piece is the ability of teachers to ask the right questions of students when evaluating a multimedia product. http://bitly.com/PrXtqcJoAnnSee More

A BLC Reflection

Now that the BLC is over and I can catch my breath, I can quote one of my favorite authors "all she could say was WOW!" The sessions, the people, the city, and my friends made my week an unforgettable experience.I was so impressed that there were a multitude of excellent sessions, a variety of topics, and passionate presenters who readily wanted to assist you in your journey. The hardest part was not being able to attend everything but that's where conversations come into play.The people were…See More

A Different Kind of ISTE

I will be traveling to Philadelphia later this week to attend my second ISTE conference but this one will be much different than Denver. No, it's not because I've already been to one so I basically know what to expect, it's because of Twitter and my PLN. Over the past year I have built a network of friends whom I have never met but yet know well. Friends I have supported and who have supported me. As we prepare to leave for Philadelpia we are tweeting about meeting face to face, inviting each…See More

Beyond the Three R's the 21st Century School is a Caring Learning Communty

My PLN basically revolves around my Twitter groups: teachers, adminstrators, media specialists, and anyone who cares about kids. We support each other in so many ways even though we will probably never formally meet. When something really matters, it galvanizes the group and you know when you ask someone will answer.
The following link more or less sums up what all of us are about, being a caring and learning community in the 21st century.…

Sitting on the Couch

I'm glad I'm home sitting on the couch giving me time to think about this experience. I believe my favorite session was Interactive NETS: Free Resources and Projects for Digital-Age Learning. Amber Rowland, who was in her last trimester of pregnancy, was dynamic and demonstrated what could be accomplished with a minimum of equipment. Fantastic!

Lucky

I am lucky for a number of reasons: 1) I got to attend this outstanding convention is a wonderful city. 2) I met great people from other states and countries and had good conversations. 3) All of my sessions, except for one, have been informative and meaningful.
Thanks to all of you who made this happen for us.

Aloha JoAnn,

 

We just started using Voice Thread this year for our student's e-portfolios. At the beginning of the year, we decided to start off small. Our focus this year was to capture 3 Language Arts piece (Fall, Winter, Spring) and one digital storytelling project. Each student has their own e-portfolio account. The samples include one writing sample, reading sample, and reflection from one of their Units of Discovery. 

 

Last week, student were able to show parents their e-portfolios during our Student- Led Conference. And those parents who were not able to attend, were given access to view their child's e-portfolios.

 

Please let me know if you have any further questions. I hope you enjoy the rest of the school year. 

 

Robin

Hi JoAnn,
Thanks for your message. I also appreciate your comments on the video!
Hope your school year is going well.... I haven't had a chance to explore the Animation-ish program yet. Are you planning to use Animationish at your school?

Have a wonderful school year and hope we'll connect again at the Punahou Lab school next summer!

Thanks again!

Hi JoAnn,

The workshop was wonderful and we really learned so much! Teachers are blogging, tweeting, flickring, making movies and using photostory! If you haven't checked out Silvia Tolisano's blog - I highly recommend it. She has zillions of resources but here is a direct link to her digital storytelling and blogging information - Langwitches . What I like about her site is that it is geared towards elementary teachers/students.

Regarding Jason - we found that his own site provides the best resources and links, notes etc. He is a great guy - super knowledgeable and readily shares what he knows.

See you in a few weeks!

Aloha,

Lisa

Hi JoAnn
thanks for the comment. I agree the conference on Wednesday was just the beginning. My hope for everyone is a process that leads to a better understanding of where their school needs to be in the future. Keep us posted!

Grant Possibility - Next Generation Learning Challenge

Here is an interesting grant possibility to design a module for middle school students to improve their ability to successfully learn core content standards. Information about the script is here: http://nextgenlearning.org/

they do give two examples of the kind of projects they are looking for:
 A modularized online course of study that may be composed and sequenced with a variety of other materials and deployed in a variety of learning environments. Note: there is not an expectation that an entire year-long course of study be completed.
 An online, collaborative environment in which students are asked to practice and show mastery of literacy Common Core Standards within the context of solving biology problems.
