I continue to be inspired by the many ways technology is being discussed in Classroom 2.0, and hope that by my participation I'll inspire educators to use technology as part of service-learning projects, where students learn about problems in their community and the world, and use their web 2.0 technology and their classroom learning, to educate others in their community about specific issues, and about ways youth and adults can become involved in community problem solving.

What do a commercial for Toyota, TV programs such as CSI: New York and The Office, film festivals, and an organization that works with
urban youth all have in common? They are at the forefront of machinima,
a filmmaking genre that is helping to shape video for the 21st…

The People’s Republic of California doesn’t require freshman-level history or social science. Therefore, our district doesn’t teach it.
In its place is a yearlong freshman health class — think “Communicable Diseases and You” — split with a seminar on how to succeed as a high school student. State-mandated and standards-driven, this approach looks good on paper.

Interview with Sean
How did you choose the Internet to reach
the public?>I was standing in Best Buys and saw a wall of wed cams. Listening for about a half hour to all the questions being asked and the volume by which people, young and old, were buying them. The light bulb went off! As an actor for twenty-five years. I know the camera doesn’t lie. I know how commented I am t obeying Santa, and of course how fast the internet is growing, I new I could get Santa to people and…
