Office hours in open sim and jibe to get help in either of these tools. Reactiongrid is my favorite place for such tutorials - they are very education friendly.

Spent some time with Kyle Gomboy, Chris Hart, and John Lester to learn about Jibe. Jibe is sort of a hybrid between the Google Lively functionality and the full Open Sim. We're going to be doing some things with this in the future.

Imagine this: students build a transportable world full of their legacy of life and carry it with them to their own server anywhere they wish and leave it behind as a legacy of the things they created.

Colleges are struggling because incoming students aren't ready for the rigors of college. Here is a clip of a press release about how some colleges are using Knewton.

"Today, educational technology company Knewton announced that its award-winning Adaptive Learning PlatformÔ has been selected by Penn State University (PSU), University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), the State University of New York (SUNY), and Mount St. Mary’s University to power college readiness courses that will help condition incoming students for the rigors of college-level academics and identify and address academic areas of improvement for each student. Recognizing the successful implementation of blended learning at ASU, both state universities with large student bodies like SUNY, Penn State, and UNLV, and small selective private universities like Mount St. Mary’s are turning toward Knewton’s Adaptive Learning PlatformÔ to power their college readiness programs.



College preparedness continues to be an issue that impacts students across the nation and can hinder a student’s chance of completing a four-year university program. According to the Alliance for Excellence in Education, 50 percent of students who enter college remediation programs fail to reach graduation. "

Nice write up on how Brad Flickinger is running his elementary classroom with a lot of high-quality technology equipment where the students serve as mentors for each other. Love this model.

Website by a 17 year old high school students in a Silicon Valley incubator. Looks interesting. "Find and share notes with your friends."

If we don't help them share - they will. If they learn is it cheating?
