Hi There, Ithaca…What Do You Want to Discuss?

Atlanta Braves Welcome to all the readers from Ithaca. I’m glad you’ve stopped by and I welcome your participation. Please look through the archives (this blog only began in February so it won’t take long) as I think many of you will find things that are connected to Dr. Charsky’s class and to teaching. Feel free to post comments to anything, regardless of how old it is.
Dr. Charsky was a guest presenter down here in Memphis last summer and I’m hoping to visit Ithaca someday. In the meantime, we’ll just have to get acquainted here on this blog. 🙂 With that said, I thought I’d open the floor to discussion…what would you like to talk about?

  1. Hey,

    I have a discussion topic- (take it or leave it of course),
    I think educational technology is a great way to expand the materials we use in the classroom, but I’m worried that our reliance will draw from basic skills like dictionary usage, thesaurus usage, encyclopedias, and manual writing. And if it will, (just to play my own devil’s advocate), why are we clinging to what is becoming “archaic technology?” Why would we consider it necessary?

    Give it a shot if you feel like,

  2. I was just reading the blog about “Moving the Discussion Forward.” I can not speak very broadly about technology integration, but there is definitely more of it in elementary schools than when I was in elementary school. One example is that the classroom that I most recently observed in was in the middle of a project where they posted book reviews on a blog and also posted podcasts of themselves reading a passage they chose from their books.
    Also, after having Dennis’s class I will definitely have more ideas about how I can integrate technology in my classroom than beore having taken the class.

  3. Hi! While checkin out your page I found a link that was pretty entertaining. I’m talking about the June 16th article on latimes.com entitled “The political guru wore tennis shoes.”

    It’s kind of crazy to think about how webcams and websites like YouTube have impacted our lives!
    I’m thinking about how Clinton reached teens via his appearance on MTV, and now, thanks to YoutTube, politicians have found another way to target young adults.

  4. Wonderful! Do you have any photographs that you could share; we would be extremely interested in reviewing :0)

  5. We all want to know if you and Charsky dress up in Spiderman costumes… ~S
