NECC 2008 in San Antonio.Today, teams from Littleton, Heritage, Arapahoe High Schools, and members of the Instructional Technology team met up in the heat and humidity (heat index 108) of San Antonio, Texas, to take in the 2008 National Education Computing Conference. Their mission: to transform first their classrooms, then their schools, into models of 21st Century learning. We’ll keep a running blog to exchange ideas and thoughts, and give the folks back home a sense of what’s going on at the world’s largest educational technology conference. One of the key issues at this conference will be the unveiling of the ISTE (International Society of Technology in Education) standards for teachers. As soon as I can get my hands on them, (it seems like they’re under pretty tight wraps) I’ll post them.

Hi all---

Well, it looks like we’re back online! Life without the internet—it somewhat reminds me of 1996! I have a general overview on TIE 2008 that I’d like to share: content matters! At the risk of making a huge generalization, the presenters I have seen and heard about have all done a wonderful job at not only detailing the bells and whistles of all the cool programs and tools, but also stressing how it fits into curriculum and enriches it. I believe that our keynote speaker did an excellent job at starting that thread. If you recall, he emphasized the story line first, then the effects and transitions. Good advice. After all, the digital medium is only a vehicle to carry students’ voices, thoughts and stories. The media is not itself the message. Your thoughts?

In some conversations I've had, people have expressed to me a worry about publicly posting comments and ideas. Is this a barrier to blogging and other web 2.0 strategies?

Our national guide in China uses the english name of Gavin. On our drive to the airport today, we shared with him our thoughts of his work as our guide. Those thoughts are captured here:
