Day two was as good as day one. There were several sessions I attended among them were two sessions on using tutors to help students at risk. One group centered around using college students and the other group focus was on using students enrolled in the virtual school. There were some interesting ideas but I also saw many areas of concern. I think these methods deserve some further investigation as an alternative to credit recovery.
One of the other sessions I attended had to do with blogging. As evidenced here by these entries, I am not a good blogger at least in part because I don’t see the relavancy of using this time when I could be teaching. I found it interesting that some of the people in the session agreed with my attitude and one of the panel leaders even went so far as to say that he was chastised by his employer for being so outspoken. If blogging is another way for Big Brother to watch, I am not so sure I want to continue. However, I do see good results coming from other blog participants when sharing ideas among themselves.
