I've done the 23 Things, the 11 & A Half Things and The 5 & 3/4 Things....and now here comes The 11 Tools.
Some of which I'm familiar with and some of which I'm not. The Web comes and goes so quickly so some Tools have already vanished. The Land of Oz and the Internet have a great deal in common.
I love anything Web 2.0 and the kids do too. Now that the library has the new Macbooks and the Minis we finally have some decent technology we can finally turn the students loose on the world of the wild, wild, web.
But, before we can turn the students loose; the teachers have to be taught. Actually, the kids could teach the teachers but that's not the way it's done in Spring Branch.
This summer, along with packing up, moving and not knowing where we're going to be holding classes come fall everyone must haul out their laptops and create a blog. Not only that, but they must write 11 posts on their blog. For some this is a piece of cake (I've had a blog since 2004) but for others it's an overwhelming task.
To quote one of the greatest movie lines of all time "Buckle your seatbelts it's going to be a bumpy night".
