state-of-the-art classroom: New state-of-the-art physics class at Bishop Moore Catholic High has students buzzing October 9, 2011|By Leslie Postal, Orlando Sentinel The students in Rob McCall's honors physics class pay scant attention to their teacher as they chat, scribble and even mark up windows with crayon. McCall doesn't mind. Working in small groups, the teenagers look occasionally to McCall for advice or direction but not, ideally, for answers. They work in Bishop Moore Catholic High's new "studio" classroom, figuring their equations on velocity and vertical displacement on white "smart boards," "writable windows" and giant touch-screen computer monitors.

The 'F' Word - 10 Tips To Get More Out Of Facebook In Education Even the mention of the word ‘Facebook‘ is enough to send a shiver down the spine of many educators.

Over the past few years, the social network has grown so far beyond just “adding friends”.
EPIC 2020 | Higher Education Reform Making the Most of Google Docs: Tips & Lesson Ideas Since attending the Google Teacher Academy in April, I have been trying to learn as much as possible about each Google application. The result? I am realizing how little I actually knew about these tools and how tragically I was underutilizing them! Take Google Docs, for example. I have been using Google Docs for a couple of years, yet I had no idea how much I could actually do with docs personally or with my students. So, in this blog want to share some information on basic functionality as well as fun ideas for using Google Docs (now Google Drive for some of us) with students.

Evernote as Portfolio | The story of using Evernote as a portfolio in my k-12 school Using a Google Form to Make Videos a Bit More Interactive Today I found a really cool tutorial explaining how to embed a video with a Google form below it so that students can fill out the form while watching and then the results are automatically sent to a Google spreadsheet. Something Cindy and I recommend when faculty want students to view videos out of class is to have some sort of questions or homework to fill out while watching the video, so this is a nice way to package that all and make use of technology. Here is the video I got the idea from by Ramsey Musallam on Vimeo. I decided to get a bit of Camtasia practice under my belt and make my own video that specifically showed how to embed a Film on Demand from the library and a Google form into a D2L page.
