NT/History Blog: Reinventing School

NT/History Blog: Reinventing School.

Bill gives a link to Seth Godin's new manifesto on education. I'd hoped to read some of it before I posted the link, but just glancing through it, I wanted to go ahead and share it.

Cool Cat Teacher Blog: Clear your Google web history NOW! Why and how educators should do this.

Evernote

At the suggestion of Steven Anderson, I reloaded Evernote to give it yet another chance. I think Robert Jimenez's blog was the first place I read about it. I could see its advantages, but didn't use it much.

All this time, I've been looking for and fighting with ways to keep up with myself. So, I re-downloaded Evernote on the home laptop and the phone and started making some notes. So far it's been really helpful. I can use the web version at school (I should say so far on this count. I remember how I felt the day I walked in to find that dropbox had gotten the county ax). I know I've not scratched the surface of what it can do.

Right now, I've got to do lists for everything I'm involved in. So, maybe about 3/15, I can start reading all the articles and watch all the videos to find out what it can really do!

One coach mentioned in the comments keeping a file on conversations with all teachers. This could also be done for all students, parents, colleagues.

btw,

The Hyperlinked Campus

Thanks to Michael Stevens for sharing his slides for the Hyperlinked Campus.

Librarian friends will be especially interested, but so will those in education. While I would have loved to have audio, the slides are thought provoking.
