感谢左手 2012

I’m so impressed and amused by my Primary 6 boys’ video adaptation of a textbook passage. I don’t think I can produce it myself 🙂

Ironically, a few parents told me NOT to assign online work to their children. Perhaps I should show them this video next time. Their kids are really doing amazing stuff 😉

Till 2016, we can be reconnected again.

What would you do if you noticed some of your graduating students spending too much time on Facebook and neglecting their final year examinations? These students shouldn’t be on Facebook too as they are below 13 years old.

How would you feel when a 9 year old boy sent the above Facebook message to people in his network announcing he will be deactivating his account because it’s illegal for him to be on Facebook? He is sad to lost all the connections till 2016.

My To-Do list for iCTLT 2012!

2 years ago I missed iCTLT because I was away for army reservist. I’m glad I am able to attend iCTLT 2012! 😀

I still remember I used Twitter to follow the conference then. This time round Twitter is unleashed and the hash tag #ictlt2012 has been enjoying success in usage.

My To-Do list:

1. Must attend @Sham Sensei‘s awesome ‘Lead Teach Tweet’.

2. Support my colleague’s presentation on using Digital Mind Mapping with Popplet.

3. Meet up with the great people behind Edmodo and Core Education.

4. Many concurrent sessions related to using technology to teach languages.

5. Meet up with like-minded educators and wonderful tweeps in my Twitter PLN.

See you in iCTLT 2012! 😉

Is Singapore really doing right?

Another dot in the blogosphere?

It is interesting to see how often and where Singapore appears on this infographic by Online Schools (click on image for full version).

When I posed the question “Where do we lie?”, I meant two things. Where we are positioned and where the untruths are.

Let us not kid ourselves: Statistics and visuals obscure details and inconvenient truths!

Everybody likes Edmodo!

It’s the start of the new school year and what a great encouragement from my Primary 3 (Grade 3) kids! The survey above is ‘Do you like to use Edmodo?’. The top 2 options selected are ‘Love it’ and ‘Like it’.  One kid commented she prefers Edmodo because it’s ‘private’. I’m sure the LMS will have lesser love this year, at least for my classes 😀
