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?"

In her final blog post reflecting on what she learned Jessica wrote this:
Since my perspective on technology has changed significantly, my mindset and hunger to learn about more has improved as well. I use whatever I can whenever I can. This commercial really summarizes the potential for the capacity of technology use. I just saw it on television, and I was amazed at how relevant it was to this particular blog post!

Thanks Jessica. What do you think?
