Hope you're enjoying the winter break. I was wondering if you, your educator contacts or students would be interested in participating in a nationwide Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. We'd really like to make sure local students are involved!
You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
Neal, I think your children's publishing tool Titatok looks very interesting. I think that Open Ed is the future of education, and a print component such as you offer is an important part of that.
As classrooms begin using this (especially for content-based books), there may be an opportunity for collaboration with the Kids Open Dictionary.
This is a completely open (public domain) dictionary being built through mass collaboration. It includes a glossary builder that lets users (teaches, kids, publishers, etc.) put in word lists for their books, units, courses, etc. and output glossaries in a variety of formats.
We are currently in the early stages of this project, but already have created some glossaries for specific projects. (See the Wikijunior Human body book as an example.) If you have any books that you'd like to try this out for, you could send us a list of words, and we can prioritize completing definitions for it.
Let me know if you'd like to chat more about this, and best of luck with your project.
