About Me
Hi, my name is Greg Pratt and I teach economics at Mesa Community College in Mesa, Arizona. My teaching takes me from the classroom to the online world as I teach macro and micro economics, international trade and US economic history. Since 1995 I have attempted to effectively use instructional technologies in the classroom and in cyberspace. While not facilitating student learning I enjoy reading, running and resting. I am currently reading Alan Greenspan’s The Age of Turbulence which is a sobering view of the impact of globalization.

I teach Macroeconomics and Microeconomics Principles, Economic History of the US and the World Economy and has over twenty-five years experience in education.

I have been a high school teacher and have taught at the community college level since 1984.

I earned BS and MBA degrees from Arizona State University where I has taught undergraduate economics classes.

Hi Greg,

My name is Alyshia Olsen; 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. Since you are in the 'e-learning and online teaching' group, 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, 2009, 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 a competition for startup funding 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 at 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!
