Welcome to Modern Educator

Here on this blog I hope to get a conversation going amongst students, teachers, administrators, and parents about who, what, when, why, and where we should teach technology skills for the 21st century. I am technology teacher at Truckee High School in Truckee, CA and currently teach classes like digital media, e-learning, applications, and keyboarding -- yes...still important! :) Please Join the Conversation!

Ability For All to Make a Difference

Today in class I introduced students to a web site where anyone can create a "Cause" or choose to "Join" one.  This site incorporates the latest in web 2.0 tools since users can share their causes with others via social media and raise money with online payment tools like PayPal.  This kind of web site allows all of us to have a voice and gives us the power to inform others about topics that we think are important.

Find out more at http://www.causes.com
