Interesting ideas -- this teacher is setting off on a journey - scrapbooking 365 days of her life. Interesting idea. For me, it may be just another thing to get behind on. It would be interesting to have a school do this and perhaps pass around a scrapbook between classes -- even better, each class has a page. Interesting idea!
The "reading assignments" for the Hacking education meeting mentioned in Time. Just had to do some digging since it was something that didn't filter down to my level of practice (the classroom.) Wished some edubloggers had been included besides Danah.
I did some digging because Time Magazine in their twitter article talked about how 40 top educators in the US were invited to "Hacking Education" which was put on by a venture capital firm. Surely many very impressive people are here -- but not many who are actually on the ground DOING this right now. Today you can involve all levels of people in such things - it is great, though that they tweeted it at least. 40 people is a lot to try to get to really do something in a day - looks like they should have had working groups.
