“Video game designers have created such an
engaging system that [kids] don’t care if they
have to fail 100 times before they actually
succeed,” says Etuk. “If you ask any teacher
how she would feel about a child failing 100
times at algebra, but never giving up and even
asking his friends to help him succeed at
algebra, that teacher would say, ‘That’s the
The Internet landscape is changing…
What is Web 1.0?
Think of web 1.0 as a library
filled with content a few skilled
people wrote for the masses to
Time and knowledge to write an entire book and the
resources to have it published and marketed.
Skill in writing HTML code and the resources of a Web
Web 2.0
The code being used is different than in 1.0 allowing for:
The pull of content from one source to another.
 RSS feeds, Mash-ups, and Podcasts for example
Pushing content back to the web without technical skills
or resource (Collaborating and Creating)
 YouTube, MySpace, Ustream, Wikipedia
What does this all mean?
School 1.0 teachers held
the information and shared
it with students...
School 2.0 Teachers and students
working collaboratively while teaching
and learning.
The focus is on relevant and authentic
content that creates real life learning

Social Networking
Social networking refers to a broad class of web
sites and services that allow you to connect with
friends, family, and colleagues online, as well as
meet people with similar interests or hobbies.
Many, such as Facebook and MySpace, let you
create a profile where you can post photos,
information about yourself like location, hobbies,
and relationship status, and send and receive
correspondence with online contacts.
Online Communities

reviewing applications

these sites

Cyber-bullying: sending or posting harmful
material or engaging in other forms of social
aggression using the Internet or other digital
(Nancy Willard, 2007)
“The tradition of home as a refuge from bullies on the
school playground is over. The Internet is the new
playground, and there are no off hours. The
popularity of instant messaging, e-mail, webpages,
and blogging means kids are a target 24 hours per
day, seven days a week.”

Hello Loves, Halloween is tomorrow
I wonder what everyone will be wearing…
B looked pissed at the end of 7th period – apparently she had to play
goalie. Hmm lets all shed a tear for her. (Notice freshly dyed hair)
J was caught throwing a fit in the hall today – over what you may
ask? Ask her yourself.
Apparently the Twins were both whispering to A and the Ice Queen
about…me? I told you all I would never tell my name.
B flirting with N again, I personally think he doesn’t like her that much
– you all know it’s true.
K was hugging one of the twins today. I wonder if it was the one who
is going out with J- or are they still together?
Looks like A got a haircut…the layers don’t really work for her. She
would have been better off getting a dye job – or her highlights

Known as; B
Personality; intelligent, shy, but can teat anyone to pieces.
Known for; Her cute looks; (not exactly hot by any means…) Cold hazel eyes that change color
from dark brown to the deepest blue. That adorable pigeon-toed gait and her mocking cat-like
smile that everyone knows so well. Of course, how could we forget her love of shorts and sports
wear? Does she know track season isn’t until spring?
Signature; Her jeering smile, and pigeon toed step
Love life; Not exactly single, everyone knows she is after N
Friends; with everyone – except a few choice people like D and the Ice Queen
A soccer ball is usually by her side as she as she is strutting with her shorts and hoodie (is that
all she owns?) down the hall beside J. S is always in her space; and is always sucking J’s butt.
B’s short gleaming black hair is of course, routinely placed on top of her head in a small ponytail. Her fringe is in her bitter hazel eyes as she smiles at her friends and pretends to know what
is going on; but is really lost in her own thoughts.
Known as; The Ice Queen
Personality; Cruel, can be sweet if she likes you; which she probably doesn’t
Known for; her beautiful misty sea green eyes, stunning physique and disgusting pitilessness
that she has had since kindergarten; I guess she is just a people person?
Signature; Dreamy green eyes
Love life; This girl can get whoever she wants; if you are currently with her – prepare to be out in
a matter of days.
Friends; everyone who knows not to stand in her way
