Lisa’s Lingo: My “Little” Circle of Friends

Wow, I’m part of a social network. Nice words from Lisa.

Dan has a video showing a really cool way to create decent looking graphs on Excel.

Kobus van Wyk – Blog

Wow! Another awesome piece of analysis from Kobus van Wyk who goes to the metaphor of a multilayered onion to describe differences in access to technology breaking it down to access, usage, and quality of use.

Re-visiting the topic of changing policy on technology in your district:
Here is where I discuss solutions to Sherry for her technology woes last week, but I also wanted to update readers on the “Teacher Tube” blocking situation at my district, which I talked about here. Apparently others in a position to effect change at my district think this is silly. My site will soon have a T5 line, so bandwidth is considered a non-issue. Apparently CIPA blocking decisions in my district can best be analogized as using a IH combine harvester to prune your side garden, rather than the more measured approach that Doug Johnson talked about. Apparently, I’m not the only one who is not pleased about this where I work, and I have some allies to work with on these issues.

And I’d like to propose that we try to archive the discussion about changing tech policy by adding links and resources here.

    I would love to do this, but I’m not blogging with students below 4th grade (9 year olds) at the present time. I may be adding third graders in December or so. The writing I’m see is similar to my fourth graders work. I’d like to link to your blog and have them read you blog.
