About Me
My claim to greatness was writing, directing, producing, costuming, ... a movie with my middle schoolers last year. I lost track of the hours I put into it. I am a self-taught movie maker and usually just go with what feels right and what I can get done in a reasonable amount of time. I am planning one again this year and will begin production some time in December. The last one was like running a marathon for the first time--just finishing was an accomplishment. Now that I know I can do it, I am going to focus more on quality (well, the best I can with limited resources). If you want to watch all six parts, go to and search under films. Give a five star rating please!

Role-Playing Games

Posted on June 3, 2007 at 7:05pm 0 Comments

I have found one great idea for using a role-playing game similar to Dungeons and Dragons for getting relunctant writers turned on to writing. I'm trying it out on my summer school kids. Check it out at this site:

I'll let you know how it works. Anyone have ideas on how I could incorporate an online role-playing game into language arts?

Hi Connie. I was wondering if your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at Please let me know. Thanks!

I'm sending out messages to everyone I know right now, and this classroom20 network is no exception. (I've also sent this out on other Ning networks you may be a part of.) My name is Marco Morales; I am a 20 year old college student from Olin College of Engineering. I am a part of a group of 6 Olin College students (we're in Needham,MA, and engineering students) who has taken a year off to work on an education related project. I found you when I searched for middle schools on classroom20, and since our project is specific to middle schools, I thought you might be interested! Our project is called AlightLearning, and this is our "short" project description:

Under the assumption that within ten years, the landscape of modern education will have fully integrated what we now define as new classroom media: video, online collaboration, open source curriculum and other web tools, we hope to pioneer a web software tool that acts as a platform for this new media, bringing the power of the web and its tools to students, teachers and parents in a secure, comfortable and innovative environment. Our goal is to have our free software at a pilot middle school by April 15th, 2008, continuing to develop and coordinate with our users to create a product that other schools want to pilot and use at their schools, while allowing individual teachers to implement this tool in their own classroom.

Our project, titled Alight Learning, is currently trying to win an idea competition on You can find us at We would love your support in the form of a vote within the next couple days, but more importantly we'd love your feedback and comments. Our description on Ideablob is short, and even the one above hardly gets many of the issues we would like to take a stab at solving, but at least it's a start.

Feel free to email me back, check out, anything you like!
