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.

It's a grassroots event, focused on helping existing tutor/mentor programs connect with peers, learn new ideas, and build resources for their work, while helping community groups build new programs in neighborhoods where there is a need, but no…Continue

For the past 30 years I've been connecting workplace volunteers with inner city kids in Chicago, and building a network of peers, supporters and others who could all be working together to build a better infrastructure to support the growth of volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs, so that more of them would be "best practices" in expanding the network of adults helping kids to careers, using the Internet and it's elearning and networking tools, as part of the process.
My database now…Continue
I'm active in a variety of networks and have trouble keeping track of them. Thus, I created a list at http://www.tutormentorconnection.org/TMLearningNetwork/LinksLibrary/tabid/560/rrcid/92/rrscid/120/rrpid/1/rrepp/20/Default.aspx
With the growth of networks, it is getting harder and harder to build a community of purpose because of the time it…Continue

Have any of you visited the web site of Blogathon 2007 at http://www.blogathon.org/ ? More than 500 bloggers have signed up for a 24 hour marithon to raise money for their favorite charities.

If you're participating in…
