I am super excited to share this update with you! My Top Ten Tech Tips for Successful Technology Integration were originally shared last July (2014). These are the tips that I often refer to when helping teachers dip their toes into the technology integration waters. It's easy to become overwhelmed by technology and planning. These tips will make the process so much easier!
Today, I'm honored to share a sketch version of my tips by the fabulously talented Sylvia Duckworth! (She makes me look good! ;))

Abstract: We present an analysis of instructional design quality of 76 randomly selected Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). The quality of MOOCs was determined from first principles of instruction, using a course survey instrument. Two types of MOOCs (xMOOCs and cMOOCs) were analysed and their instructional design quality was assessed and compared. We found that the majority of MOOCs scored poorly on most instructional design principles. However, most MOOCs scored highly on organisation and presentation of course material. The results indicate that although most MOOCs are well-packaged, their instructional design quality is low. We outline implications for practice and ideas for future research.
El docente medio está obsesionado por el control del aula. Es fácil comprobar que, si uno pisa las salas de profesores, son muchos los que se quejan del descontrol del aula, de la imposibilidad de mantener silencio, de lo bien vistos que están aquellos docentes en cuyas clases se puede oír el aletear de una única mosca.
Teach your students about the "9 Key Ps" of digital citizenship as you help them acquire both proactive and experiential knowledge of the online world.
I want my students to know the "9 Key Ps" of digital citizenship. I teach them about these aspects and how to use them. While I go into these Ps in detail in my book Reinventing Writing, here are the basics:
1. Passwords2. Privacy3. Personal Information4. Photographs5. Property6. Permission7. Protection8. Professionalism9. Personal Brand
Una lista de inocentes avisos parroquiales, todos ellos reales según dicen, escritos con la mejor buena voluntad, inocencia y total respeto. Pero seguro que a un lector avezado como Vd. le resultará irresistible leerlos desde “otra” perspectiva, con significados muy diferentes. Ahí es donde un ordenador haría “crack”.
There’s been a lot of discussion recently on what schools should be teaching kids. Just this month, the United Kingdom announced the addition of cybersecurity to its curriculum in response to a lack of education in the field and the rising industry skills gap.
I believe U.S. schools have been hesitant and even neglectful when it comes to how they discuss social media with students, and it’s time for this to change. Social media is a very real and ongoing aspect of our everyday lives: It no longer makes sense that, in 2014, several states still teach cursive writing when many students can text much faster on their smart devices. We need to be educating students on applicable skills for the world that they will interact with, and that means providing them with an understanding of how social media can affect their future. The gaping generational chasm between teachers who grew up before smartphones existed and students who were raised on them has resulted in a trial-and-error model of internet education and exploration, which could potentially wreak havoc on a student’s future. The internet is written in pen, not pencil.
"Earlier, I wrote about four activities teachers and school leaders can use to jump-start creative problem-solving in teams. Given the increased pressure on educators to innovate, the goals for each activity were to build or deepen skills associated with that work. Readers expressed particular interest in one of these activities, so I wanted to do a deep dive and provide additional information.
This activity grew out of my work with teachers and school leaders to identify effective solutions to school problems. Over time, I became curious about how schools might make pain points visible, in order to tap into educators’ collective wisdom to solve them. I wondered, too, if we could structure this problem-solving in such a way that everyone’s voice would be heard. Finally, I wondered if there might be a way to make it a fun and creative game. That’s where a set of index cards comes in."
