Experiencing life and teaching what I know.

Here I am, STUCK!

Where does one go from here? Having so many ideas and no way to implement them…

Maybe there is someone out there that overcame all odds and used web 2.0 tools in the classroom. The following site proved to be useful; http://www.classroom20.com/. Enabling related links and search engine searches are useful for now.

So close!


Using Mxit in the Classroom

After a parents meeting on Wednesday (8 Oct 08) I talked about Dr Math on Mxit. I bought a new simcard reloaded Mxit and provided the number and Dr Math’s number to the parents at our local homeschooling centre. Needless to say the parents weren’t impressed. I do find this kind of prejudice everywhere. Worse, the kids simply ignored the opportunity. Dead end?

I really don’t know.

Maybe this is all too new for the region I’m in. I also informed teachers, at the school where I’m at, of the possibility of using Mxit or Face-book in the classroom. Dead end again.

I will give everyone a time out from my enthusiasm and just maybe they will come around.
