Flipped classes focus on student interaction and engagement in class and a major component is the technology that can be used to create, deliver, and collaborate. Richard has posted on many of these tools, so I’ll be sharing how I use a combination of tools in a typical unit.WritingGoogleDocs has been a lifesaver for me. at 8:11 AM Email ThisBlogThis!

3 Ways the Internet Is Changing Education Right Now The Internet has had a massive effect on all aspects of human life and interactions since its inception. The world has shrunk considerably and the speed of life has increased dramatically. But one specific aspect that the internet has had an enormous effect on is education. It’s changing education for good and for the good of all. 5 Ways You Can Use Wikis Today I had the privilege to participate in Discovery's Beyond the Textbook forum. One of my take-aways from the day's conversation is that most of the technologies that we want to use to make textbooks interactive and meaningful for students already exist, we just need to organize and utilize them in a way that makes sense for teachers and students. I've combined that take-away with a recent request from a reader to delineate some ways that teachers can use Wikispaces to create this list of ideas for using wikis in classrooms. Please feel free to add your suggestions, with links if possible, in the comments below (please note, I'll be on planes for the next 18 hours so there will be a delay between your comment submission and its appearance on the blog). 1.

The collaboration pyramid (or iceberg) inShare117 The majority of the value-creation activities in an enterprise are hidden. They happen below the surface. PBS Kids Cyberchase - Dozens of Math Activities PBS Kids Cyberchase offers dozens of online and offline mathematics games and activities for students. The collection of more than forty online games are designed to make students think about patterns and use logic to solve challenges. The offline activities use the same model, but are designed for hands-on offline learning. The highlight of the Cyberchase online activities are the "quest" activities in which students have to solve problems as along a journey as they work toward a goal. For example, in Mission Motherboard students have to solve problems to earn money that they then use to buy parts to fix a motherboard. Not all of the games are as time intensive as Mission Motherboard.
