Hey Matt, Yes, I've enjoyed running into you when our conference schedules overlap. Think we have lots in common about the way we view things. I'm actually going to be in Indy on Tuesday of this week. My friend Adriana asked me to come speak to the grad school methods class she is teaching. Hope the weather cooperates!
You asked about Taiwan and Kenya connections. Have a look at my classroom web site for details on projects I've been doing with Taiwan for the past five years - www.smithclass.org -- As for Kenya, I'm working with a school to set up a web presence and at the same time connect their students with my students. It is very slow going due to their lack of technology, but I hope to see more happen as time goes on.
I've been teaching more than 15 years and started a school in 11 years ago in a rural are where education was a must. Rarely parents used to send their children to schools. Now i've problem with school supplies. Looking help for it.
hi Indy, mail me at email@example.com Hope you'll be my great help and advisor as u r in such a high level in education department. I run a school in a poor area of Nepal. I'm struggling hard for bring children to school and providing them opportunity to read and write. Hope you'll respond me.
With your interest in Curriculum (I'm assuming this inclueds online) I recomend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's web based power point presentation platform. Both have a bunch of features and a free basic service I think you'll find useful.
