About Me
I live in Las Cruces, New Mexico, the “Land of Enchantment” where the view includes the Organ Mountains and the most breathtaking sunsets. I am fortunate and grateful to be taking part in a transformative experience at Pepperdine University working on an Ed.D in Educational Technology. I spend my days working at New Mexico State University as a project coordinator and online instructor and I taught middle-school for four years. My expertise lies in distance learning, K12 professional development, higher education faculty development, social computing, and emergent technologies. I am helping to develop a new online teaching and learning certificate at NMSU and I’m still a proud RETAzen providing resources, community, and professional development for teachers in New Mexico.

I'm sending out messages to everyone I know right now, and this classroom20 network is no exception. My name is Marco Morales; 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. I found you when I searched for middle schools on classroom20, and since our project is specific to middle schools, 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, 2008, 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 an idea competition on Ideablob.com You can find us at http://ideablob.com/3975. 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 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 alightlearning.com, anything you like!

Hello Julz - interesting about your Pepperdine adventure - I have a connection. I've applied for the EdD in educational technology program and hope to begin this coming summer. Maybe I can ask you a few questions sometime? -- Terry

Welcome to Classroom 2.0, I hope you find this group as helpful as I have. Your PD weekend sounds very interesting. I am just wondering if your participants were open to the idea of social networking in the classroom, and also was there any conversations about Second Life? I am just interested where people are in the conversation about social networking.
