Why This Blog?

This blog is the repository of materials I use with my students to help them think about what schools and teaching may be like in the future. I will add materials as I find them. If you have suggestions for materials that should be included here, please let me know via Twitter @drjohnhadley or by Email.

I also use these materials to stimulate an ongoing conversation with students and faculty on two questions: How do we determine whether a teacher is "technologically literate"? and Must all teachers be "technologically literate"?

The first question is the result of thinking about the second which was the central issue addressed in a 2007 post by Karl Fisch, author of The Fischbowl and Director of Technology for Arapahoe High School in Littleton, Colorado: "Is It Okay to Be A Technologically Illiterate Teacher?"

A Vision of Students Today

This movie was produced by students at Kansas State University and Michael Wesch.

The web page referred to in the movie is Digital Ethnography at Kansas State University. This website is a fantastic resource for the questions that we will address in class next Monday. I am only sorry that I did not know about it sooner. And, yes, I found it through Twitter! Thanks to @willswartz !
