    Technology offers extraordinary new capacities to teachers. The vast breadth and depth of educational materials and the sharing of resources available through connecting regional teachers via that technology can break boundaries, making any professional learning accessible anywhere. On February 23rd (March 2-Snow Date) we will demonstrate this…[Read more]

    This link will take you to the videos created by a group of Kentucky sophomores as they attempted to define the “American Dream” in the 21st Century. The assignment required them to represent their thoughts digitally. As you’ll quickly see, some are AMAZING and some still need some work (but will be amazing eventually!)

    Pat Trotter shared an interesting article. The lead sentence states, “To harness the power of digital learning, we should focus more on the planning how technology will improve how students learn and teachers deliver instruction”. It is well worth the read time.

    • Too true. The article states that “Americans need to learn how to discover.” I hope we can move toward discovery learning so our students can adapt to the world as it constantly changes. Thank you for sharing this article.

  • A colleague brought one of these by my office today. I was impressed. Who knew the Viewmaster would end up being ahead of its time? Going to experiment with creating a VR video segment later this week. Fingers crossed!

    The “on-air” light isn’t up yet at the studio so @klay had to improvise. He takes his filming seriously.

    Another cool one for you guys, if we ever get into 3d modeling we could make our own characters to chat via webcam. Im mostly looking forward to a tv villain using a program like this to hide his identity while demanding ransom on Law and Order or some other crime show.

    This might make for a fun Holler project, we can preorder the developer edition for $599 and it comes with the sdk. Also might make for a good episode for Klay’s podcast.

    • First I’ll say “wow”
      Second, third and fourth I’ll say “Is this ready for market and is it real and will work with a Mondo Board?

      • You can preorder one now in white or black for around $500, and I think itll be like a year before they start shipping. You can visit the link above the video for more details. It is real, or at least it will be.

        • We need to get the tech crew to decide if we want field test and determine classroom/learning applications prior to full release. Thanks allseer. I hadn’t heard anything about this till your post.

    • This thing is too cool. Wonder how many ways you can adapt it to meet the needs of the user. I’m thinking about the ability to tailor it to a child with special needs. How can it be use it to make students more independent?
