    Readiness for H1N1
    Curriki - Continuity of Learning
    "WASHINGTON DC (August 25th, 2009) - Curriki, the largest online community for creating and sharing open source K-12 curricula, was asked by the Department of Education, Office of Innovation and Improvement (OII) to provide a continuity of learning plan for states, school districts, and individuals as part of a nationwide readiness initiative for a possible resurgence of the H1N1 virus.
    Curriki’s continuity of learning plan includes access to a free and open repository of teaching and learning resources built on an open platform that can be customized for individual states or school districts. Like an iTunes playlist, users of Curriki can create collections of free and open educational resources, along with repositories of other supplemental content. If a teacher prefers one lesson to another, he or she can easily swap content in or out to meet the individual needs of the students. States or school districts can take advantage of customized landing pages designed to provide specific information, news, resources, and links to their education stakeholders. Additionally, Curriki’s group function allow members of a district, school, or community to stay connected and privately share resources, communicate and post news and collaborate on projects from any location.

    “I don’t believe that charters and vouchers are the threat to schools in Orange County,” he said. “What’s a threat is the digital world — that someone’s going to put together brilliant $200 courses in French, in geometry by the best teachers in the world.”

    Will Richardson's wiki space A Web of Connections: Why the Read/Write Web Changes Everything "This is a very challenging moment for educators. Our children are headed for a much more networked existence, one that allows for learning to occur 24, 7, 365, one that renders physical space much less important for learning, one that will challenge the relevance of classrooms as currently envisioned, and one that challenges our roles as teachers and adult learners." You can find his taped presentations here.
    The problems that exist in the world today cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them.
    -Albert- Albert Einstein
    Don't let those tests defeat you. Don't let those tests define you.
    -- First Lady Michelle Obama, speaking to students at Denver's South High School, November 16, 2009 Mrs. Obama related that she herself was not a great standardized-test-taker.

    Computing is not about computers anymore. It is about living."

    What Are Social Networks?
    Who Participates in Social Networks?
    Younger People
    What are teens doing?

    Social network sites as the key focus. Social Network Sites: They are not about networking. Teens are going there to hangout with their friends. They connect with those they know from face-to-face interactions. They are not interested in meeting people through these sites. They are interested in connecting with those they know.
    Older People - Business, networking in the traditional sense.
    ...
    They know to produce, but they do not know how to think critically. They are not experts. Adults have a critical thinking around it. We, as teachers, empower them and need to guide them critically.
    We work through sociology, we work through information. The disruption of this social media (this technology) is that it is making us rethink what our position of power as adults. Us:Them - create general divides. We must open up dialogue and understand how they are using the tools.
