Are physical textbooks still necessary in a 1:1 computing model that allows students to take their tech home with them?

+Rob Letcher yeah i think my main point was that we're not ready to move all edu to digital just yet. and as for the IT costs - i'm an admin and my wife's a teacher, and she routinely hits problems connecting to the school server. she then has to call some independent firm at 8, 9, 10pm and try to get help. it's excruciating listening to the phone calls :)

i'm half tempted to to go to the school and offer my services to run the whole damn thing :)

(oh and another side note, i tried donating some boxes and monitors to the school and some policy or other disallowed them accepting any box if it didn't have a corresponding monitor!!)

and, i'm done

"I have yet to meet any teachers or school leaders who did not believe they had high expectations for student learning. The difference, then, is not in what is said but what is practiced."

I'm having the same issue. I'm considering buying the Wingtite drain also. It's been over a year since you posted this video - is it still working? Any issues? Was it difficult to cut out your old drain? I'm a little nervous about that part of the install.

It really is possible to do a lot more in Moodle than many think!

These videos are good, but give the impression you're looking at someone working upside down.  I wonder if there's a way to flip the video on it's head?

Thanks. All of these videos have already been flipped, if they didn't then the work they were doing would be upside down instead! Flipping the video is easy in QuickTime.

I know you think you're a good teacher, and maybe you are. After the first couple of years of teaching, I think we all feel like “I got this.” But I often reflect on Marshall McLuhan's premise that the “medium is the message” – that the medium used to communicate a message has a distinct affect ...

Districts with lower state test scores have more students opting out of NY state standardized tests.
Chingos utilizes data from the New York opt-out movement to analyze the relationships between a district’s proportion of opt-outs and the socioeconomic status and prior test scores of students in that district.

3 spots left for this weekend! !!     "+ My Newsletter"

Raptors in Flight workshops

Feb 28th and March 1st, 2015 - Near Simone Ontario.
More new dates to be set up soon.

These workshops take place inside a falconers training area, he has his birds fly for my guests for 3 full hours.  Some birds will do their flight as many as 25-30 times.

This is a beautiful male snowy owl, just coming up to his second birthday. 

We usually do 2 programs for each weekend of workshops, since many people from across Canada and the United States will fly into Toronto, and join these workshops. 

If you want the latest info regarding my upcoming programs, please register for my once a month newsletter here.. click!

Wife ordered a piece of wall art from Zulily and it was "delivered" today by LaserShip. At least we guess it was Lasership. The delivery person was in an unmarked white mini-van blaring bass-laden dance music with the volume knob set to 11. I heard it through closed doors and windows in the rear of the house. Went down to find out who was waking our child during naptime with that obnoxious music and saw the driver in a red jacket walking...nearly stumbling...to their van. Oh - and the package? Giant hole torn in the side of the box through which you can clearly see the picture frame. When we tried to open the bottom of the package, shards of broken glass fell out onto the carpet. All in all not what I would call a class act. Zulily is making good by shipping a replacement item - but I'll be shocked if it gets here in one piece if they keep using Lasership.
