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.
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?
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. 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!
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 email@example.com
Here is what we have so far:
Title: Collaborative Project on Environmental Science and Sustainability
VCE Environmental Science Students, Melbourne, Australia
Long Branch, New Jersey, United States
How do our ecosystems and land management practices compare between regions?
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.
