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?"

Increasing Student Achievement with Macs

two students using Mac books
It's not just the technology: it's project based learning, it's collaborative learning, it's rigorous learning, it's empowerment through trust, it's powerful tools used by excited teachers, it's tools that are easy to learn and use, it's an emphasis on creativity. Here is what Green County, N.C. did to improve student achievement: Increasing Student Achievement with Macs.

Thanks Allie Howell for finding and sharing this!
