I see. You are on the other side of the river. The west is a tough crowd. I used to do teacher training in southern Indiana in a project called TICKIT; Teacher Institute for Curriculum Development about the Integration of Technology. That was from 1998-2003. Now I am trying to write some books. Like, The World is Open: How Web Technology is Revolutionizing Education. It comes out in a few days.
I gave talks in Lafayette School District 13 or so years back. Here it is: West Lafayette School District, Alternative Instructional Strategies: Critical, Creative, Cooperative;" I remember speaking in the gymn, Toughest crowd I ever had.
Spoken many times at Purdon't. Good people up there!
I would love to talk to you more about our software and what we're up to. Check out a video we made at www.tinyurl.com/alightlearningvideo for a quick description of our latest thoughts and send me a private message with a phone or skype name and a time to contact you. Thanks for the inquiry!
Greetings Mike. Thanks for stopping by my page. Thirty three years? My hat is off to you. I spent some time working in Indiana years ago it seems. I can't say I know the territory, but I have been there. It was warm and welcoming place.
Hi Mike! 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 Indiana students involved. Please let me know. Thanks!
