DSHA students (98%) responded to a technology survey in March/April 2014. Questions presented were about BYOD, social media, how they use technology for and at school. I made a brief video and shared highlights of our results with students, parents, and our faculty & staff.

If you have questions about the survey or are interested to know more - contact me! (ask / email / tweet)

The Online Discussion Board: Opening the Gateway to New Learning

Creating a learning environment and opening the gateway to diverse experiences, ideas, and opinions should be the focus of faculty and curriculum development team members when creating discussion forums. Affording faculty the opportunity to revise a following week’s discussion question to continue the topic, move the topic in another direction, or include breaking news widens the gateway to increased student involvement and learning. Breathing life into all areas of the course begins with the first breath, an engaging topic, and faculty creativity. As faculty, we must be the difference that drives new learning and widens the gateway to student success!

Free Touch Typing Software

Want to be a better typer? Want a free resource for students to improve their typing skills?

Check out TypingClub - free lessons that will teach you how to type and get you to 10-12wpm. Or, try the more advanced lessons to improve your wpm (words per minute) skills.

One thing I like is that you don’t need an account to use it - perfect for adult learners or very young students. Creating account has advantages, it tracks your progress over time and remembers where you’ve left off.

If you’re curious, take one of the wpm lessons and check out the statistics when you’re done - it keeps track of how fast, accurate, and proficient you are down to the letter (so you know which letters might need more work).
