“Teachers Walking Out? Students Got it Covered”

Awesome blog entry on one of my favorites (Weblogg-ed) about a school in NH where the teachers are potentially walking out. The actual story, however, is how students are gathering together a whole bunch of Web 2.0 tools to cover the event for their community. But where are they learning how to do this?

If we take a look at different KIPP school curriculums, I’m wondering where we find these skills being taught… I’m not too familiar with other KIPP school curriculums outside my state, but would love to know what their Tech curriculums look like, or even where these skills could be taught outside specific tech classrooms.

In my 8th grade Tech curriculum the closest we come is knowing how to search and evaluate sources online (a valuable skill, no doubt). Where does Web 2.0 fit in? I’d love to hear thoughts or comments on where it fits into your curriculum, or where it COULD fit in.

  1. I think this is a topic where teachers need to catch up to the students! The Internet has created a world where students can find the information they need, when they need it and then essentially teach themselves. Maybe a good place to start would be to assign Web 2.0 topics to student groups and have them present what they know to the class.
