I am no longer in the classroom but I am happy to talk with you about how I used technology in my teaching. Feel free to IM me at bohechick (AIM) or firstname.lastname@example.org (gchat), or just e-mail me!
Ricky, I encourage you and your fellow students to visit the Tutor/Mentor Institute and read some of the articles. These focus on getting adults beyond educators and parents involved with kids living in high poverty areas. If your team adopted some of these ideas and marketed them to fellow students and alumni, this could lead to many more people involved in supporting the growth and operations of these types of programs in big cities throughout the USA.
Sure, Ricky -- you can get to my webpage, my blog, and my email address by going to my page in Classroom 2.0. If you send me a list of questions ahead of time, I'll take sometime to think them through before we talk at more length. How much of a hurry are you in?
