I came across a magizine article and it talks about blogs. I have not read it yet, but thought I would share it.
This blog is designed to fascilitate ongoing discussion and learning through best teaching practices, book studies, and collaboration in Highland Park ISD
On page 58 of our book, Will gives a list of a dozen good educator's blogs to read. There is one in particular that I think has some great stuff. It is Anne Davis'. The URL is http://anne.teachesme.com
I agree with Robert that fear is an explanation for a willingness to try new things. I also think that with technology, people experience frustration when it doesn't work the way they want it to. Additionally, technology changes so rapidly that it becomes a chore to constantly keep up with new applications, logins, accounts, etc. Yet, I believe that as the technology in our lives evolves, it is also becoming more user friendly and simple.
I don't know about you, but I am greatly enjoying this book! I can see so many educational ramifications. What was most interesting to me is that typically as technology changes at such a rapid pace, the educational system is reluctant to embrace the changes. If our mission is create engaging lessons that challenge our students to read more critically, think about that reading more analytically, and write more clearly, do you believe that fear is driving the train?
