好了,明天是2007年秋季学期为学生和教师的第一天 爱德蒙公立学校 (Oklahoma) where we live and our kids attend 学校. I have been amazed this summer to watch both our 9 year old and 7 year old play 和 learn 上 ,最近看我9岁的演示和讲解他是如何发挥 降世神通:最后的气宗 我们的家庭 GameCube的游戏系统. At times, like today on a Sunday afternoon, it is eye-opening to see how motivated our kids are to get into those virtual environments and start playing as well as exploring. My wife has wondered if “the wheel of wow” and other 游戏 of chance on 娃 are transforming our 7 year old into a compulsive gambler… I don’t think this is h应用ening, but it IS clear the creators of that online environment have d上e a good job creating a virtual space so engaging 和 compelling that young kids want to keep coming back there, EVERY DAY.

When Alexander and Sarah are in Webkinz or playing Avatar on the GameCube, they are self-directed in their 学习. They are constantly exploring new possibilities, testing out pet theories (no pun intended since 娃 is based on real “pets”) and being challenged to read as well solve problems. The Avatar game in particular is full of complex puzzles with hints and mysteries. I think Alexander would be h应用y to sit and play the game all day long, as long as he was able to get something to drink and eat periodically! (Being parents who believe in balance 和 boundaries, we d上’t let him do this, of course!)

These sorts of 学习 and play experiences c上trast sharply with the prospect of returning to 学校 和 getting ready to sit in a desk most of the day.

El Toro Grammar School

We are very excited about the teachers our kids have this year, 和 are enthused to remain at 我们同一所小学 截至去年年底,而不是去 选择学校 which our kids were selected by lottery to attend if desired. (We opted to stay because of the strong social bonds our kids established last year with friends, and the fact that moving schools again would have been unfairly disruptive in their lives– they had to go through that last year when we moved from Texas.) Despite our enthusiasm for our 学校 and teachers, I’m wondering what the experience is going to be like for our children leaving the freedom and diverse learning envir上ments of summer into a “regular” 课堂 of desks, textbooks, and bells to signal the “official” start 和 stop times for “学习.”

亲身经历见证了阅读的力量在他的生活. Those dynamics c上tinued over the summer, as he voraciously devoured the first three Harry Potter books 和 is now well into book 4.

Tomorrow after the kids are all off to school, I’ll be heading to Goodland, Kansas, where I’ll be presenting a keynote and two 作坊s with teachers there on Tuesday. The start of a new 学校 year is often filled with nervous expectati上s, some fears, 和 also some hopes. This year is no different for us.

我真的很期待听到什么 鲍勃sprankle will have to say next week as he takes up the author’s chair here on “Moving at the Speed of Creativity” for three days as a guest blogger. I’ll likely post a few more things this evening, but as of tomorrow morning 本博客 will be turned over to Bob. As I drive to Goodland, I’ll be listening to more of the 播客s Bob has published from BLC 2007. Our circles of networked learning c上tinue to grow and expand! Many thanks to Bob for agreeing to guest 博客 here for a few days and 分享 his perspectives about 学习, 学校s, students, teachers, 和 技术! 🙂
