Hi Jay. I was wondering if you have any high school contacts who would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
With your interest in Ed Tech tool incoporation, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service.
I too have little experience with social networking sites but I think that you should definitely incorporate this site into EDC 430. Expose the students to as many of the different types of education resources out there and let them sort out which ones they find the most useful.
I teach science methods at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse...and also a former physics teacher. I'm using Ning this semester. Over time, I hope that this Ning turns in to a community of pre-service and in-service teachers sharing and learning with each other. http://teachingscience.ning.com/
I'd like to talk to you about possible collaborations.
Hi Jay, Great to see someone working collaborative tools into sci-ed prep programs. I just finished working with a student teacher who had no requirements for such things. He did fine, but it would be great if our soon to be hires were coming prepared to lead students into the 21st century.
Hi Jay - talk about slow, I just noticed your comment on my Wiki Blog entry today, over a month after you posted it!
I would be happy to share my experiences. Once something starts to happen. Or, indeed, if not.
