New Tech Director Blogs

Back in November, I whined about the lack of school tech director blogs out there. I am pleased to report that two S.F. Bay Area tech directors have recently started their own blogs. Barbara Cohen of Marin Country Day School writes about using vendors for professional development, podcasting in elementary school, and using technology to show the process of learning. She has even started a separate blog for Daisy the Duck, a new arrival on their campus!

Duck Diaries blog

Howard Levin of the Urban School writes on behalf of students with visual processing disabilities, “authentic” uses of classroom technology, and Urban’s constructivist approach to student use of gaming and social network sites. Howard is a national leader in the fields of 1:1 student laptop computing and oral history on the web. Check out Telling Their Stories.

Thank you for your contributions!

    Me, too. They even have a real, live duck. I had to settle for elephant skin instead.
