The following are what I believe are the rights of all student to have with regards to using technology as an educational tool, written as a student to their teacher: 1) I have the right to use my own technology at school. I should not be forced to leave my new technology at home to use (in most cases) out-of-date school technology. If I can afford it, let me use it -- you don’t need to buy me one.

I don’t have much love for multiple-choice tests — either for administering them or for taking them — but as a teacher, the format was sometimes required by my administration, and was sometimes useful for simple prove-that-you-read-it quizzes. Google Docs didn’t help me love them, but it did help me never grade them. Here’s how: (1) Go to Google Docs. If you don’t have a google account, you’ll have to set one up, but if you already use GMail or GReader or any of the other apps, you just need to log in. | Self-grading multiple-choice tests with Google Docs | rpollack.net

Listen A few weeks ago I worked and attended North Carolina's ISTE affiliate conference. I opened the NCTIES conference with a breakfast keynote address and Marc Prensky closed it with a luncheon keynote the next day. Sadly, I missed the second day of the conference. I would first offer some constructive criticism to NCTIES , and to all such ed-tech conferences across the nation and around the world. You do a fabulous job of offering dynamic learning experiences for teachers who are new to teaching or new to utilizing contemporary information and communication technologies in their classrooms.

LEO was your classic room-filling clunkfest, built by British food manufacturer Lyons to help process its payroll and accounts. It was born at a time when the advancements made at Bletchley Park were still top secret, and when -- according to a 1954 issue of the Economist -- there were still people who did not believe in the "desirability of introducing anything as esoteric as electronics into business routine."

School Reform Over the past month, I’ve been in a variety of twitter conversations with really smart people about the issue of school reform and high school dropouts and, subsequently, on two episodes of Teachers Teaching Teachers.
