    In reply to: Randolph Hollingsworth posted an update Have you seen the report from http://www.learningforward.org/stateproflearning.cfm? Nationally, they see that more teacher PD is being offered but that there is a DECLINE in […] View

    Talking to superintendents, they are really getting frustrated at the lack of quality in PD options, particularly PD that speaks to next generation learning, teaching, leading. Higher Ed. could fill in this gap with real partnerships with K-12 schools, but it would require a different kind of business model for both parties. For instance, perhaps…[Read more]

    In reply to: William Campbell posted an update How many folks on here are using Evernote? Best practices tips? View

    I’m a pretty big user on the iPad, but I have not yet integrated it with all my other devices. I know I can do that, but haven’t taken the time to figure it all out yet. It does work as a nice notepad for me on the iPad, though. Interested to head others’ thoughts as well.

    Tried out the forums, but when I tried to post, nothing showed up. It was like Buddypress didn’t get the message that I wanted to try to post to the forum. Anyone else experiencing this?

    In reply to: Bret Foster posted an update Been thinking a great deal about the technology policies we have in place and how they could prevent innovation. Seeking examples of policies that facilitate and motivate innovation. View

    Obviously as a policy guy, I think that is a great point. But, the policies, especially at the school level, should just be a manifestation of the will of the community inside and outside of that school. What bothers me is when they are looked at as more than just written statements of the community’s interests … as in, most of us want to do…[Read more]

  • In 2018 – 54% of jobs in Kentucky will require a postsecondary education. Meaning, KY postsecondary institutions will need to graduate an additional 87,000 students over 2008 levels by 2018. Jobs for high school dropouts, though, will remain largely flat over this period. Translated, this means unless we slow dropout rates and increase college…[Read more]

    So, Marty (@marty-park) put together a map of the 1-1 districts in the state currently. So far we have 4 districts (in yellow), but we would like to fill in with much more detail, such as if a district is currently piloting – we’ll add them but in a different color. So, we could use your help on that. What districts do you know of that are…[Read more]

    Hey Everyone,

    Since 1-2-1 seems like it is going to be such a big deal for us here in Kentucky for the next decade or so, I thought this might be a good space to start collaborations around this issue. So, I started it. But, by no means do I want to run it, so it would be great if everyone else felt like they owned this page, because they do. I…[Read more]

  • @meribeth-gaines – congrats on choosing a new name for the school. I like Wellington. Is there anything special in the name? I guess besides “the Duke of” ?

    In reply to: William Campbell posted an update Very impressed how well this site lays out on an iPhone View

    Had not even checked it there – thanks. I know it works fine on the iPad. Good to know we are working in the mobile world. I guess someone should check Android if anyone has it. What else? Palm? Does that still exist?

  • Decided to start sharing some stuff with our little group here. This is a video that came out not that long ago that I would love to copy/customize for Kentucky. Anyone know any top notch motion graphic artists … especially students at UK?
