Teachers Lead Adoption of Web 2.0, but Perceptions Stifle Social Networking : April 2009 : THE Journal
Web 2.0 tools are now in use at most schools, and teachers have been largely responsible for making this happen, according to a national K-12 technology survey released this week. But of all the various applications of Web 2.0 technologies, social networking remains the outcast, with the vast majority of districts reporting that few or no teachers engage in this type of communication.

The evidence-based approach of our model requires a stringent program evaluation for the purposes of quality management, research for future program development, and accountability towards our donors. With program evaluation, we plan to research the short and long term influences of our program on the participants' professional development, as well as on their experience of empowerment and organizational/community involvement.

Rating Systems and Personal Rules // NoahBrier.com
Rating systems are something I find myself discussing fairly frequently. Partly because the idea shows up in a lot of projects and partly because I usually end up relating it to the rules people set for themselves within different social networks.

World Without Walls: Learning Well with Others | Edutopia
one of the most profoundly important articles I have read recently.

"For educators and the schools in which they teach, the challenges of this moment are significant. Our ability to learn whatever we want, whenever we want, from whomever we want is rendering the linear, age-grouped, teacher-guided curriculum less and less relevant. "
