Creative Computing June 1983

Creativity circa 1983. How many of our schools are stuck there today?

 

  • Wes Fryer always has great insights into improving multimedia instruction! This is an important topic that should gain some traction in our schools locally. Librarians have spent too much time telling students/tchrs what they can’t do–it’s time to turn that around and give them tools & tell them what they can do! Of course, over-filtered school networks hamper, and in many cases, make moot this point! I think at the very least librarians and teachers should be aware and work to be proficient in using CC items.

  • Wow! Doug Johnson is on a roll these days! I so LOVE the first portion of this post. I too am suspect of such admonitions as “every student will learn” and “more rigor!” (Again, I revert to the definition of rigor in my mind, and think surely we can do better!) But I digress…

  • Seems like a simple suggestion, and one that is hardly worthy of discussing. I’ve done this for years! I know that many people haven’t made this switch though, and it’s a simple switch that will make your life easier if you care about the placement of graphcis & the overall graphic design of your final piece.
    BONUS: Ppt is so much more friendly than Publisher to use, that I wonder why people ever use Publisher in the first place! Publisher is difficult to open if you’re not a MS Office Suite sort of person (zamzar will do it in a pinch though), and if you hone your skills, there’s not much that you can do with it that isn’t also available in Ppt.

Trelease is one of the first and most important ambassadors for reading aloud  and student choice in reading material, and I adore his work! I got to hear him once at an NCTE event, and it was an amazing experience–finally, someone saying what I knew to be true! Reading aloud is important, pedagogically sound, and POWERFUL! His Read Aloud Handbook was just updated, and I think everysingle teacher should read it. Math, Science, Social Studies, PE–no matter what you teach, this book is that important! I’m an old Math teacher, after all! I wish I’d read it years before I did, because I knew this was important, but I just didn’t understand how it could apply to me as a Math teacher. It does.
