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!

- ClassNoteUtopia Notes and Student Community

How Web 2.0 Sites are Changing the Way "We Do" School

Ever since I started teaching many of my students have complained that they don't get paid for going to school. Well, I always tried to explain to them that the education they were receiving was their payment. However, now they can earn CASH for their work. Others can also choose to pay for the information they need. Students can now download notes for their specific classes, sorted by school and professor. It is becoming more obvious each day that the goal of education can not be teachers transferring information to students but rather, teaching our students how to access, manipulate, organize, share, and utilize information to solve problems and accomplish tasks.

Watch this video to see what NoteUtopia is all about.
