Thoughts and Connections

On a very busy week, a couple of things...

First, enjoy this NCLB music video... (from NotonTheTest.com)

It's worth a trip over to Lon Thornburg's blog for digital text legal facts.

Unlocking the Classroom has an important post on community organizing and allowing student voice.

From Punya Mishra and Mike DeSchryver, "Googling creativity: An investigation into how pre-service mathematics teachers use the Web to generate creative ways to teach."

The conversation on teaching teachers to teach at the Education Policy blog is very much worth reading.

Eric Kunnen on the growing value of mobiles in education.

and Kate Olson has a fascinating web survey on web applications blocked by schools despite their educational potential. Read the Google Doc spreadsheet.

Plus, a world of connections over in the links on your right...

That's the best education song and video I've ever seen. I forwarded it to a whole slew of friends. I giggled through every chorus in the song. - TL
