This was the kind of conversation that needed more time. Listen as nine teachers from six states — Paul Allison, NY, Lee Baber, VA , Glen Bledsoe, OR, Susan Ettenheim, NY, Kevin Hodgson, MA, Eric Hoefler, VA, Matt Makowetski, CA, Chris Sloan, UT, and Ken Stein, NY (plus a father from China) — who use blogs, discussion boards, and other Web-based communication tools in their classrooms tell stories about the first half of the academic year. We report on what we have been learning about blogging (and using wikis) with students. We also begin to talk about what our plans are for the remainder of the year.

Take a look at our ever expanding Google Notebook for this show: Teachers Teaching Teachers 01.10.07

In the comments at the bottom of this post, please join us with your thoughts about what you’ve learned teaching students to communicate online. What are your stories? Let’s see how many more states — and countries — we can add to the list as we check in with colleagues from all over the globe.

We also want to talk about how to help students who will be ending their classes with us in January can find some closure with their blogs without closing off the possiblities of keeping an ongoing blog.

And please join us next week — and every Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. Eastern — in the text chat room at EdTechTalk.com.

Help ISTE Develop the Next Generation of NETS for Students

Just a forward that I thought the EdTech Community would appreciate:

Help ISTE Develop the Next Generation of NETS for Students

ISTE's National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) were introduced
in 1998. Since then, the NETS have served as a common denominator for
effective technology integration in education throughout the country and
around the world. To keep the NETS relevant in today's increasingly
digital world, ISTE is developing the next generation of the NETS for
Students (NETS*S) and needs your feedback. There are two easy ways for
you to get involved:

* Take the NETS Refresh survey

* Register to attend one of these free NETS Refresh Town Hall being held at regional conferences: FETC, January 25, Orlando, FL and TCEA, February 6, Austin, TX
