"I must ammend my previous post. Lisa Pedicini sent me a great email with some links telling me how VoiceThread, Google Apps, Twitter and other web 2.0 tools. Moodle does have a vast array of plugins to support these interactive…"
You make some good points - some things I had not considered. It is difficult for students when teachers use different programs to do the same thing. It makes sense to standardize to only one LMS so they…"
"No offense taken Murry. It's a great question; one that I have had to answer at my school as well. We use Moodle but it is very clunky. It is not clean looking or intuitive. THat said, I have not looked at Moodle 2.0…"
Are you using a free version of Haiku, or has Hockaday purchased it?
The tech guys have been so supportive this year that if we go with this next year I know they can fix the firewall problems at work. Chemistry…"
"Hi Murray, one more comment (since I'm here at home on yet another ice-day!)...
I've started using Haiku, planning to teach a writing course this summer. As much as I criticized what I thought it's clumsiness last summer when I…"
Thanks for the reply. Funny how I forget that some of my best resources are just in the next building.
I know we had a conversation earlier this year about the increased amount of writing your girls were…"
I will admit that this year I wanted to begin with webcasting my lectures and decided to not try to learn an LMS on top of that. So far I have gotten by just fine without an LMS, but I really have to wonder if…"
"Caroline, would you be able to send me the your Haiku's rep name as well? We are using Moodle and Ning to deliver our fully online course and blended learning course. Our schoool just became a consortium member of the OSG so it is…"
"Well, Murry, it's only about6 months since you posted your question, but....
For my Lit and Philosophy class during fall semester, I created a wiki for class discussion. Students enjoyed the discussion, but I had a hard time…"
I agree with Caroline that a LMS is essential for blended teaching and learning. A LMS is a place to organize all your resources, whether they be google docs, blogs, or anything else. We use Moodle, the free, open-source, internationally…"
"Hello Thomas! I didn't realize that I could have colleagues on this discussion group. Pretty cool.
Let me know what you are doing and how it is going. I am glad to have another AP Bio teacher to talk to about blended learning.
"I am trying to have 17 people input at the same time, but it only needs to be available for 2 hours. We aren't going to keep it.
I will try some of the site you mentioned. It occurs to me that I could make one student at each lab table the…"
"What are you trying to do? Are you creating a document that needs to live on in perpetuity that all 17 students edit at once? That's kind of tricky, and a tool like coveritlive for documenting a conversation might be better.
