About Me
I'm not quite 60, i"ve been in middle schools for 33 years - and I am doing my best to convince my district tech staff that 2.0 belongs in schools. I live with a dialup at home, so my own interactivity is limited. Hopefully, this will change at some point in 2008. For now, I do what I can do on the school's heavily blocked network. I won't be participating as often as I would like, but I am looking forward to learning from others. My students thank you all! Oh, and I teach Literacy, as in reading & writing & information & media & communication & cultural & collaboration (which is why I love the idea of this Classroom).

Hi Elizabeth. I was wondering if you and 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 BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!

Hi,

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 Ideablob.com You can find us at http://ideablob.com/3975. 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 alightlearning.com, anything you like!

Thanks,

Marco Morales

Elizabeth,

I know from personal experience that convincing schools/colleges to adopt new technologies can be slow and frustrating, but hang in there. The effort is worth the trouble.

Wow! I hope I will be like you in thirty years! Your commitment and enthusiasm ease up my anxiety regarding entering the field of education here in the United States.
Thank you!
