Jen's Link: With K-12 Online, -> see http://k12onlineconference.org/ ... and Global Ed -> seehttp://www.globaleducationconference.com/schedule-gmt-6.html ... , we have seen lots and lots of examples of folks facilitating presentations. Drawing on our collective experience, let's share presentation ideas we like ... and the dreaded practices that should never again see the light of day. Some areas to consider: (a) asynchronous tools and strategies, (b) synchronous tools and strategies, (c) soliciting participant feedback (before, during, after), (d) the backchannel, and (e) posting for posterity (how, where, what?)
John's Link: So yes, perhaps we did talk about Wikileaks last week. But it's a big story, and it might be worth another pass.It's interesting how the news media has stretched it, taking a little piece in each news cycle, with "new" revelations, and new scandals. Then, there's the issue of whether they're terrorists, the statements by Senator Lieberman, and (more importantly) the response from the host and DNS providers. Then, there's the whole (somewhat related) issue of the US Government seizing the domains of copyright criminals. Is the wild west finally being tamed? Is free speech on the Internet dead?
Dave's Link: Wikileaks. What does it mean for our classrooms? With Australia banning links to the site... where does this lead? Do textbooks of 'controlled content' become more important? Should we be teaching this in courses? Do we have a patriotic duty not to touch this information?
John's Link: Project Red: Do 1:1 right or don't do it at all. We're far enough along now that the novelty of 1:1 programs has worn off, and it's time to look at what effect they really have on a school. With many more schools now looking at 1:1 programs, it's important to look at best practices. For those thinking about 1:1 programs, the CDW 1:1 Readiness Surveyis a great place to start.
