About Me
I am currently in my 23rd year of teaching high school science. I am the Science Head Teacher at my school and I am looking to collaborate with other high school biology and environmental science teachers using blogs and/or wikis in the classroom.
Presently, I am in my second year of doctoral work. I aspire to complete my PhD in Education with a specialization in K-12 Educational Leadership by 2011.

Hey Evelyn,

Our Brainyflix video contest just ended, and I wanted to thank you for helping us get the word out. We got 800 submissions from across the country!

That said, MIT was really happy with the results and will let us run another contest, so we're going for it! But this time, we're gonna have kids create Brainypics flashcards - which are images and sentences paired up with a one of our SAT/ACT words. The contest ends May 22nd, and there'll be iTunes and a cash prize like last time. To boot, we'll double the payout if the kids can hit a certain goal. More details at brainyflix.com/main/contest_rules.

Do you mind passing my message along to students and your colleagues again?

Thanks,
Jack

Hi Evelyn! Per people's requests, I have written up the contest details under my profile at CR2.0. Or you can go to BrainyFlix.com and click on Rules. Please let me know if you have a question that isn't answered. THANK YOU! :)))

Hi Evelyn,

I am also in the midst of Doctoral work! I am setting out my survey questions.

I know a lady teaching enviro-science next year and she would be great to work with.

Everyone is on a months summer holidays now.

We made a start to an idea didn't we.

We can brush it up and develop it a bit further and see if she (or others) would like to do it.

Should be very quiet on this end for a month or so though I would say with the holidays.

Good luck with your research maybe we can share our stories sometime about what we are researching.

Hi Evelyn. Hope you're enjoying the winter break. I was wondering if you, your educator contacts or students would be interested in participating in a Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. We'd really like to get NJ students involved. Please let me know. Thanks!

Hi Evelyn,

I have been emailing with an interested Science Coordinator in Melbourne High School that offers Environmental Science at the Senior Level (Victorian Certificate of Education VCE).

I also have strong links with Sweden who participated in our water project I mentioned earlier. A group of nine came and visited us in Melbourne in a home stay situation for 7 days. I think I can bring them on board once we have enough of an idea to go with. I will send you their ideas for a collaboration they used for their grant to visit us by email. It is along similar lines.

Maybe we could start communicating direct through email white.pennie.l@edumail.vic.gov.au

Here is what we have so far:

Title: Collaborative Project on Environmental Science and Sustainability

Participants:
VCE Environmental Science Students, Melbourne, Australia
Long Branch, New Jersey, United States
Halmstad, Sweden

Topic:
How do our ecosystems and land management practices compare between regions?

Scope:
Voluntary Participation
Can we make it possible for other schools to contribute?
How long is long? I think we need to make it so schools can come in and out of the project as they wish.

Cheers,

Hi Evelyn,

I sent your request out to science teachers I worked with on that water testing project. Let's see if there is some interest!

Hi Evelyn,
I am an eLearning coach for 25 schools in South-East Melbourne, Victoria Australia, what ever kind of class you want I can connect you and support the class in collaborating with you online.

I have worked with a water testing project collaborating between 7 schools before water.yvelc.vic.edu.au

Hi Evelyn, Nice to meet you virtually! Maybe we can get some class to class collaboration going. Pennie
