Jonathan E. Martin on Building the 21st Century School
Jonathan E. Martin, Head of School at St. Gregory College Preparatory School in Tucson, Arizona joined us to reflect on his first year. We discussed how Tony Wagner's Global Achievement Gap has framed the work he is doing with his faculty. Jonathan led us through a number of assessments that St. Gregory is using to measure how collaborative, creative, and engaged his students are at St. Gregory. Interested in the 21st Century School, this is definitely one version!
What a way to close out another another great year of podcasting.
Thanks to everyone for listening. We'll see you all in September.
Social Media, Construction and 5th and 6th Grade Tech
arvind discusses Hewitt School's venture into Facebook and Twitter. Vinnie discusses the construction project that his school is diving into. Alex discusses teaching 5th and 6th grade Tech Classes in the fall. We wrapped with some conversation about Google and its recent upgrades.
Sachin Agarwal, founder and CEO of Posterous.com joins Alex, arvind, and Vinny to talk about their slick web-publishing tool. They give away free blogs to anyone, and they couldn't be easier to use. Sachin walks us through some of our questions including, "how do you pronounce Posterous?" to examples of how teachers could use Posterous.
