questions for howard and Roy

Howard & Roy both have experience, expertise, & tremendous insight; let's take full advantage! Please list your question(s) in a comment to this post.


  1. I would like to know what Roy Christopher's stance on creative commons licenses as well as to know how necessary an ISBN would be when it comes to publishing your work on the internet.

    I won't be able to attend class that day so Im also wondering if this is going to be recorded and if theres a way I could watch it later

    1. Yes it will be recorded and Dr. Preston can give you the link to watch it :)

  2. It's a pretty simple question, and I think most of us can probably think of the answer, but I think their insight would definitely be interesting;
    Why exactly is there so much resistance to this technological boom in some places? Why are people so reluctant to accept this tremendously helpful tool?

  3. (To the whole panel) I think this is the very beginning to an ever growing process of expansion of knowledge integrating the Internet and education. This is only the first step in what classes can do to get deeper into education. What kinds of things do you personally want to see come out of projects like this? Is there any specific technology you would recommend to Dr.Preston for future years?

  4. My question to them is a simple one and mainly based on their opinion.
    How do you see what we have done in our class influencing other teachers and students to learn through technology?

  5. Can you realistically see this sort of technology being used widespread. Why do you think that this is the way of the future? What do you think are the pros and cons of keeping the education system up and current with society and the technology available?

  6. Mine is really basic, what do you think of what we've been doing all year and do you have any idea's you think would improve it and how do you think it will change the usual classroom experience?

  7. How many more trial runs are going to be necessary before this concept is fool proof enough for others who are more hesitant to pursue this method of teaching/learning?

    How do we convince others to push past the desperate need to ruthlessly structure education?

    Is this concept going to become a new 'system' that is going to need to be 'hacked' by other generations? Is there a way to avoid that?

  8. A dream I have for the internet is for it to become a place of learning where minds can come together and connect without geographical location being a limiting factor. I want the internet to bring about the reality that Raphael dreamed of when he created The School of Athens. I have tried that using the blogger interface as a prototype model, but can this dream that I have stated above actually be turned into reality?
    Further along those lines, how can we create a system that can test the eagerness and capability of young minds so that people already using the system can fairly accurately place the child in an information tier of her intellectual capabilities and maturity?
    How can we add data, increase or incorporate more user friendly/effective tools to the learning site without it degrading into a labyrinth that even existing users cannot navigate?
    Also, how could we keep this learning site working while people intentionally try to mess it up by either feeding it false information or straight out hack/assault the site?

  9. Why is technology/internet best for education? How will the use of the internet and/or technology better educate students?

  10. Do they see what we are doing right now becoming a central data base source for students looking for input and creative analysis' and opinions? Or more of a virtual classroom where it isn't so much a source, as it is a type of socratic place of teaching and learning?

  11. I really feel, in agreement with Sir Ken Robinson, that education needs a revolution. It can't just be reshaped, cleaned, and modernized. It isn't something we can renovate. We need to bulldoze it and rebuild "education" to be Education and not School. I ask, what are your thoughts on how integrating technology will revolutionize education? Will using technology dissolve the school within education? Can we really revolutionize education without changing the way we teach? (I think many teachers will teach the same even with a blog/use of tech.). How will technology do away with the current education system of standards and industry?

  12. How long have you considered this particular form of learning the "future of education"?
    -Matt Sagisi

  13. How do you think the relationship between education and technology will change In the next twenty years? Also, how do you think what we've been doing will affect education and how the youth of the world interacts?

  14. Do you think that one day there could be a united worldwide school program? Like a cross-culture multi-ethnic academy. With all these tools that are being developed in front of us, who could say we can't learn a new language or specialized engineering in a virtual classroom with other cultures and there great teachers.

    I'm not meaning online college either.
