eSchools News

December 9, 2008

Not so much a blog, as newsletter, not a single podcast but a rich collection of video podcasts, the eSchools News (www.eschoolnews.com) is a rich collection of information delivered regularly to subscribers’ email inboxes.

Trying to develop your Disciplined Mind? Then visit the Best Practices link in the Home tab. Do you want to challenge your Synthesizing Mind? Then perhaps the “Special Reports” tab will have details of major issues and new technologies that need to be considered. Are you ready to test your Creating Mind? Then visit the Resource Center. Concerned that students are demonstrating their Respectful Minds and that their data is secure? The Security tab is for you. Are the effects of digital learning principled? What ethical issues are in the tech news? The SAFE Center is there too. A quick browse of topics has something for every teacher, administrator, and technology department, to assist students’ success and ensure ethical use of technology.

Beginning a new job yesterday that assists teachers and schools in their goals of technology integration, many issues have already been raised and discussed with my new team. eSchool News has information relating to many of them. When addressing these issues, it will be important to have the widest possible knowledge base when making technology choices, when faced with technology challenges, and when designing curriculum and technology integration.

The place to keep current is a free subscription to eSchools News.

    Hi Rod,

    Congratulations on starting your new position! (For some reason, I thought you were starting after the holidays.) I know from your discussion posts and your blog that you are going to be an invaluable resource to your district as you pursue the technology upgrades (both to equipment and teacher skill levels)! Working with teachers can be a challenge, but you have the soft skills as well as the tech skills to do well!

    The resource you shared is wonderful and I’m glad you have done so. Every teacher should have a subscription! 🙂

    You have brought great insight to our discussions and I thank you for taking the time and effort to do so! I look forward to crossing paths with you again in the future in this program. I hope you will drop me an email from time to time to let me know how things are going.

    Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas,
    Dr. L 🙂
