Digital Learning Day

Here is my contribution to Digital Learning Day. From the web site:

“Digital Learning Day is a nationwide celebration of innovative teaching and learning through digital media and technology that engages students and provides them with a rich, personalized educational experience.”

In this video from TEDxDenver 2 years ago (which has been posted here before) I give examples of what this new pedagogy can look like and how it changes pedagogy.

Learning is messy!

    These projects are so engaging for your students! It is so impressive to see how you are embracing technology in the classroom. Maybe next year, your class could submit some of your math related videos to our non-profit math website (www.mathcounts.org) or our Reel Math video contest. Great work!

    That was amazing, that is exactly what I want to do! I am actually lucky enough to be in a classroom with a complete set of laptops but the kids say they rarely use them. Any particular site you recommend to set up class and student blogs?

    Hi Joel – Here is a link to my class blog: http://classblogmeister.com/blog.php?blogger_id=65078

    I like Class Blogmeister, but I’m not 100% sure which platform I would use if I was starting from scratch. Edublogs and others each have their advantages. Visit school sites that use different blog software and ask lots of questions.

    I do have a book coming out on class blogging in May if that helps. : ) http://www.amazon.com/Making-Connections-Blogging-Authentic-Classrooms/dp/1564843122/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1329280390&sr=8-1

    Hi Brian

    I’m a student at South Alabama in EDm 310. I like how your students like to use the technology so much. I also like how you are using the technology in your class.

    As I watch the video, getting a glimpse of what it’s like to be in your classroom, I got excited! This is the type of teaching I love to see in the classroom. You stated in your video that this method is a step out of the box. I could not agree more. This video is an inspiration for me as I plan to be as creative as possible. I plan to make technology a part of the everyday lesson in hopes to keep creative minds working and still promote academic excellence.
