Chapter 13 Reflection: Issues in Implementing Technology in Schools

This chapter was boring, but had information in it that needed to be discussed maybe just to refresh our memories.  I think copyright, fair use, and privacy is just common sense.
Cyberbullying seems silly, but probably does happen.  But like you said, why don't you just turn off the computer?!  I agree that teachers need to be aware of the issues in technology implementation, legal, social, and ethical issues.
Oh yeah, congratulations to you and your students for the nomination for 2110 Edublog Award Best Class Blog!!!  We heard about it in the e-mail at school today.  Awesome job! The teacher that I am with had to check it out and everyone else in the room! Way to go!

Chapter 12 Reflection: Distance Education: Using Technology to Redefine the Classroom

 I can see where distance education could be a benefit in some scenarios but not with children.   I think adults would have problems with it too.  Where would the social learning come in and guidance?  I don't think it has a place in public schools.

I enjoyed looking at everyones power points last class time.  So many great ideas and imaginations.  I think they all turned out  wonderful.  I was nervous since I hadn't ever done one before, but not so bad.
