Youtube goes educational.the times, they are a changing!

The Electric Educator

Large companies are realizing that there is a huge demand for educational training and information. The two largest and most innovative companies that I can think of are Apple and Google. Google (which owns Youtube) is quickly becoming one of the most formidable companies in the world and one of Apple''s greatest rivals. Education is taking place OUTSIDE of the classroom more and more. School buildings and classrooms are so 20th century!

Reflection: The FedEx Project

The Electric Educator

Two ideas have inspired me to try something radically different in my classroom. Autonomy, mastery, and purpose are three concepts that Dan Pink explained with great clarity in his 2009 TED talk. After watching Pink''s talk I was inspired to write a blog post about these ideas and possible applications to the classroom. I decided to call this assignment the " FedEx Project " after hearing Dan Pink share about the software company Atlassian and their " FedEx Days."

Even Skype itself got in the game late in the year and created a place for teachers to sign-up to connected with other classrooms.
