"Hey, Kenny.  We are currently running Pixie 2.  Lately, when a class of students tries to utilize the stickers, they either won't come up or they just freeze.  Any idea what this might be?"

The International Baccalaureate 6-8 Instructional Technology Curriculum

Posted on August 5, 2011 at 9:52pm 1 Comment

Hello, all!  Recently a colleague of mine was hired as a middle school instructional technology teacher at an IB academy.  Because she doesn't yet have a curriculum, she's charged with the task of developing something from scratch.  Does anyone out there have any experience with instructional technology at an IB academy?  Any suggestions or input is so very much appreciated!  Thanks so much!

Thanks to the many of you who have viewed and provided feedback regarding the Research without Copying video. Many folks have asked for the PDF, so, rather than sending it out individually, I thought it might be best to attach it to the blog. Please feel free to let me know if there's any way I can assist as you try to implement some of these ideas in to your classroom. The updated PDF has a few new examples that are not on the Research without Copying video. Again, please don't hesitate to… Continue

Constructivism in the Classroom

Posted on September 16, 2009 at 10:30am 7 Comments

As of this year, I've taken on a new job as a problem-based learning consultant. Right now, we're still in the planning stages of what a job like this might really look like. Currently, I'm in search of model schools to visit who are utilizing inquiry, problem, or project-based learning school-wide or even on a smaller scale...perhaps an entire garde level.

Any suggestions of schools either in the midwest region or in the San Diego area who are utilizing constructivism in the… Continue

Early Childhood Technology

Posted on June 1, 2009 at 11:38am 3 Comments

Hello! I'm currently working with our director of early childhood to build a technology program from the ground up. Currently, none of the three early childhood buildings have any technology. We plan on purchasing a few computers, projectors, and SMARTBoards. Aside from those things, is there any type of technology, hardward or software, relevant to early childhood that you cannot live without? Thanks in advance for your collective knowledge!

No problem. It was actaully hugely helpful because I located a large number of people who had signed up but not activated. So I activated all the accounts and emailed the group and am now getting lots of thank yous.

I like those ideas. When those are finished could you please send us a sample or even them on here. Thanks!

I read what you were doing with your students can you send me a file of each grade level, so that I can show my student what other people are doing at their grade level.
