Smartboard presenter is showing us the video “A vision of K-12 Education” but it doesn’t really match up to what I think IWBs are for.

Should 21st century teachers continue to compartmentalize learning with daily lesson plans? More in an ASCD EDge post: http://bit.ly/eVfLLA

In this episode:

Special guest Mike Magboo, Teacher on Special Assignment – Merced County Office of Education ROP Technology Chair (@allurbaser) shares his thoughts with us on IT’s role in Education, talks about our upcoming T3 video project as part of the K12HSN Grant and shows off his Monster Droid X. More LTSP performance geek out moments, Flash 10.2 for Ubuntu 64-bit is out but didn’t fix the problems. Danny wasn’t happy with just being a GCT so he went out and became a Google Apps Certified Trainer. I didn’t want fan boy status, so I’m only a Google Apps Qualified Individual. Check out http://edutraining.googleapps.com/ for more info on getting certified. And check out these tech resources for CA educators – Calaxy and MyBOE.org. And of course we talk about Jim Klein’s ubermix and Jon Corippo & Minarets High School.

Danny pulls a tweet out of thin air (An awesome Google Site customization):

Looks like the work of the master craftsman @EdintheClouds. Brilliant!

I ask, “Can we ditch our PBX phone system and replace it with Google Talk in Gmail?”
