"Last week, I informally surveyed my second-year medical school class; among 100 respondents, 89 indicated that Wikipedia was the first resource they consulted when faced with confusing concepts or terms. Seventy-nine said they used it “all the time” and, perhaps most striking, 45 said they thought they would use it for clinical information as physicians. These numbers underlie a near-ubiquitous reliance among medical students on such electronic materials. But does Wikipedia’s lack of credibility pose a problem for the future of American health care? Or is this site the kind of educational resource that medicine has needed for so long?"

Austin's Butterfly: Building Excellence in Student Work - Models, Critique, and Descriptive Feedback"
Jon Smith, or @theipodteacher as I’ve come to know him, caught my attention on Twitter this week. Students in Mr. Smith’s sixth grade classroom at Gibbs Elementary in Ohio’s Canton City Schools just published their own math textbook, released just days ago on iTunes!
Mr. Smith’s entrance into the world of e-book publishing started with his 5th grade special education students whose children’s book The Two Kids & Desert Town has been downloaded from iTunes more than 1300+ times in the U.S. and “across the pond.” The students also wrote Reflections on Our 5th Grade Year as a way to reflect on the highs and lows of their school year and connect with the fourth graders who would be moving up to their classroom."
