One of the things that I´ve always pointed out about the whole technology thing is not to expect everyone to be so delighted about it as we are.
So, I was in this Parent School night and I was excited about sharing with parents how students were being engaged using Diigo and the tremendous learning taking place there. I also mentioned that we were going to continue using our digital platform, Edmodo, to post homework, share important information, dates, etc. I mentioned that students would be discussing in virtual forums through Collaborize Classrooom. I presented them with Posterous, through which I was expecting to share some thoughts with students and have students do the same. Of course, I mentioned how we were going to be using social media to engage and learn. I showed them our most recent Wallwisher about scientists who contributed to the development of Biology. I informed that some evaluations would be made through Socrative or Google Forms. I spoke to them about our brand new BYOT policy. And, and, and...ok, you get the idea.
