my name is Ann Rooney and I am a senior secondary English as a Second language teacher and I also teach English to year 8. I love teaching and here at Wilderness School in Adelaide, South Australia I am stimulated by a creative, sharing environment. I've only been at Wilderness for about 3 years but I've been a teacher since the early 1980s. For a while I lived and taught ESL at a language college in Ireland to Spanish and Italian students.
Since starting at…Continue

What is an Acceptable Use Policy and why is it important?
Acceptable Use Policy is a set of rules, applied by the owner or manager of a network, website, service, or large computer system, that restrict the ways in which the network, website or system may be used. An AUP reduces the potential for legal action that may be taken by a user, and often with little prospect of enforcement. AUP’s are important to a school system because the behavior of staff and students in a school reflects…Continue

The AUP, Acceptable Use Policy, for the Madison County School system can be found easily online. Each school also provides a Media Consent Form and Media Release Permission slip to parents each year. Both forms are provided for each child at the beginning of each school year. The purpose and goal of the Acceptable Use Policy is to outline the acceptable use of the internet and alert parents to possible safety issues that can arise from unacceptable usage. The AUP form can be accessed by…Continue
Public schools have an obligation to educate all students to be “international-minded” citizens. In the International Baccalaureate (IB) Organization, “international-minded” students are defined as demonstrating all of the “Learner Profile” attributes. These include being open-minded, caring, reflective, principled, balanced, knowledgeable, inquirers, thinkers, communicators and risk-takers. Imagine if all students left elementary schools with those attributes. Students who demonstrate these…Continue

In the International Baccalaureate (IB) Organization, “international-minded” students are defined as demonstrating all of the following attributes: open-minded, risk-taker, reflective, principled, balanced, inquirer, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators and caring. There are many ways to give our students enough time to practice these attributes. I have incorporated them into the library time and collaborating with teachers to allow students to show these attributes to others around the…Continue

Minor Assignment #2 - Handshake Design Task / Activity
Handshake Activity for the Art Connects Project
Age Level = 7th grade (12-13 year olds)
The needs for this age group, in terms of the Handshake Activity, are pretty basic. The activity needs to engaging, allow for individuality, allow for creativity, easy to use so that the students are successful right away, lends itself to asynchronous sharing, and can be finished in 1 class period. As far as this…Continue
It is pretty long but this is the general outline I would like to follow (a work in progress) for a year-long 'CONNECT' class I am designing for 45 middle schoolers next year. They will be team-taught in classes of 22 & 23 students.
Age level of participants: 5th Grade
Needs of age group: The handshake task must be simple, easy to create and can be completed in one class period.
Tools to use: Noteapp.com. Noteapp is a simple online bulletin board to place sticky notes.

In designing my new "CONNECT" class, I want to go beyond a simple Handshake task in order to create a more comprehensive handshake unit that accomplishes the following objectives:
1) Introduce the idea of collaborative learning
2) Allow students to experiment with some of the tech tools we will be using in the class
3) peer-to-peer teaching
We have 45 students in our middle school, so we are dividing them into 2 groups of 22&23 students. At the outset the teachers…Continue
For the past couple weeks I have been immersed in 3D Printing. I have met with the director of CSU 3D Lab. His work is simply amazing. He is collaboratively working with 5 global universities with the end product being a paraplegic stand up and a kick a soccer ball at the opening ceremony at the World Cup! Then, at the end of the day my Maker Bot arrived!
I am working on my doctoral dissertation through Walden University and would like to ask for your support.
I am investigating teacher personal and professional perceptions on learning in virtual learning communities and I need participants.

After reading chapter 10, I explored some of the resources mentioned. I liked the TIGed site. It gives resources that can be filtered down into 4 different areas: lesson plans, research, videos, and collaborative projects. It seems like a great source for generating ideas for designing our projects. The case # 21 highlights it. Thanks.
