Chatroulette: The Vblogging craze goes viral!

First, it was the AOL chat room. Then, then bulletin board. Remember the old BBBs?

From IM, to videologs or vlogs and vblogs comes a creative innovation of random internet communication, Chatroulette.

People are extending online conversation thru a new social media site to connect with randomly selected individuals; some with a flair of creativity. See video below.

For a good article on Chatroulette, go here:

Principal Declares Recess is NOT “Free Time” « FreeRangeKids

Sometimes I think our society has come so far from darkness
to enlightenment no more Inquisition, for instance; no more
Scarlet A’s that we have come full circle and are now back
to being idiots. A case in point? This principal’s letter to parents
about why she doesn’t want kids to consider recess ”free time.”
– from Principal Declares Recess is NOT “Free Time”

Time for an Educator “time out.”

How do we prepare the brightest and most creative problem solvers of the next generation if we do not focus on their learning environment?

In a previous post I shared how one national non-profit organization was supporting structured recess and “play” at schools to improve the youth developmental environmental factors that contribute to a child’s learning success.

Unfortunately, here’s a story where a beleaguered administrator might need a time out to reflect upon what research shows works to best support a learning environment.

What’s your opinion?
Is recess and “free time” important in youth development?

What is the learning environment like at your neighborhood schools?
What is the role of recess and unstructured play time “recess” at schools near you?
