When I first started teaching 20 years ago I always had a coffee can full of popsicle sticks with my students name on them sitting on my desk .

Student Selectors & Grouping Tools

When I needed to ask a question, I pulled a stick from the can to randomly choose a student. My old coffee can is now gone and instead there are tons of great options for selecting students online! They are super easy to use and so much fun- for you and for your students I use these in my classroom and also when I'm training teachers. Keep in mind that these toosl don't have to be limited to names and that you can enter lists of numbers, vocabulary words, research paper topics, characters in a story-basically anything you can create a list of. The possibilities are endless! {John obviously has a great sense of humor because when you click on his page, the title at the top of the tab reads: Teach meet victim selector!} And the Flipped Classroom.

Web 2.0 Is the Future of Education. (Cross-posted from TechLearning) A moment of extreme clarity became an obsession for me last week.

A session that I had prepared for the IL-TCE conference went from "Web 2.0 Tools for the Classroom" to "Why Web 2.0 Is Important to the Future of Education. " Then, as PowerPoint fever gripped me (OpenOffice.org Impress, actually), moving slides around as though they were puzzle pieces finally coming together correctly, I found my thoughts coalescing toward a bold conclusion and a final title change: "Web 2.0 Is the Future of Education. " It was not, I know, what I was supposed to talk about. But it felt so important, as though the idea needed me to say it out loud.
