LisaParisi: project based instruction is key
LisaParisi: open ended projects
JoseR: What are your thoughts about Essentials in the web 2.0 classroom
LisaParisi: let kids decide
Jason Hando: Essential 1: the teacher is a learner just like the students when
it comes to edtech!
LisaParisi: good working computers, access to just about anything, and time
LisaParisi: yes jason
LisaParisi: let the kids lead the way
Jason Hando: Essentail 2: access needs to encourage involvement - no good if
computers don't work
JoseR: Good points Jason.
loria: yes, need equity with hardware updated to handle new Web 2.0
LisaParisi: it's all about timing and outcome needs
JoseR: You are looking at barriers?
loria: yes there are barriers
Jason Hando: I prefer the word "embed" rather than "integrate Lisa
JoseR: I am facing that with older emacs with OS 9.2
JoseR: ditto jason
Maria: embed - good word
loria: I have imacs - going on 8 years old - but we did update to osx
Jason Hando: eMacs can run OSX, is it a licence $ issues Jose?
JoseR: update on ours went funky.
JoseR: for us is being the new teacher. New computers are in the main building
LisaParisi: it's all about what comes first...technology or content
LisaParisi: content first then how can technology help or enhance
LisaParisi: not - great tech, how can i use this in the classroom
JoseR: Content does go first
Jason Hando: oh, I just bought an eMac online auction for $120, running OSX
10.3, my wife loves her new comp and I get off being a cheapskate ;-)
loria: yes use tech to enhance the learning
Jason Hando: learning comes first, content second, tech third
Alice Mercer: miz mercer
loria: but need to think about what tech skills can be embedded
Durff: which ones do you think?
Alice Mercer: Skype Miz Mercer if you want to join conversation
loria: collaboration and creativity
loria: can be embedded with problem based learning
