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?"

Speaking of History - Eric Langhorst

From Mr. Chamberlain in a comment on Caroline Shedd's Blog: If you are really interested in learning how to use an mp3 player for school I would suggest checking out Eric Langhorst's Blog Speaking of History He uses Microsoft Zune's in his classroom instead of the Apple Ipod, but I think you will find that he has done an excellent job leveraging that technology. Eric was the Missouri state teacher of the year a couple years ago and has done tons of interesting professional things.

Thank you Mr. C
