Digitally Speaking about Digital Learning Teacher Talk

Wake County, NC public school sixth grade teacher Bill Ferriter said, “… it is essential to provide our students with opportunities to become networked, collaborative and globally active learners” in order for them to compete globally. Teachers will find his wiki site “Digitally Speaking” useful for reviewing efforts where he has tested such ideas in his classroom.

He introduces why he says this in an introduction Think globally, learn locally. He argues, “While this may sound intimidating and expensive, it’s not! Efforts supported by free digital content creation and collaboration tools like wikis, blogs, Skype and Voicethread can give students across grade levels and content areas the opportunity to work with peers beyond their buildings on projects related to the curriculum.”

Kudos, Bill. A great resource for teachers and reference for education software developers, especially for Tablet and other mobile PCs.
