Bob, Global Virtual Classroom would love to have teachers from the schools you support joining into the programs. We really want to promote global understanding amongst teachers and their students. Let me know if you have any questions.
He is an Australian Psychologist. Today he is considered the tenth most productive author on educational psychology. The basic idea (actually the initial idea) behind Cognitive Load Theory is that because working memory (used to be called short term memory) is limited (in capacity and duration) then if a student has to peform a complex task, this may overload his working memory and the learning process becomes inefficient. That is not the whole story but, that is how it got started. Nowdays the US Department of Education posts on a website called "doing what works" (very pragmatic right ?) some recommendations which are based on Cognitive Load Theory. They recommend for homework, teachers to interleave worked exemples with problems to be solved.
Happy Thanksgiving! I'm heading across the street to help with the cooking for a big gathering today.....would you like to talk on Monday?

I teach Media Art and would love to connect my students with others from around the world. Would Morocco have any teachers or students that you think might like to work on a collaborative project?
Nice! I am very excited about this project. The panel discussion will take place from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Please, write an agenda for the meeting that I will share with the teaching professionals enrolled in the course.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I have two dates in mind for the panel discussion:
(a) January 19, 2009-Scope and Definition of Distance Education, and
(b) January 26, 2009- Historical Context.
The course meeting time is 5:00 p.m. -8:00 p.m. Please let me know which date and time is best for you. Thank you again.
Thank you. I am considering using Google. Google has a video and a chat feature. Or we may use skype. Do you have any other options in mind? I am open to suggestion.
I am putting the final touches on the syllabus this week I plan to have date ready on Friday November 20, 2009. Thank you again.
Wonderful! A panel of speakers would be nice. Please let me know which three dates in January and February work best for you. I will choose one of the proposed dates if that is ok. We would need about an hour to an hour and thirty minutes of your time.
Hi, Bob. Thank you for your generous offer- I'd love to accept. I started to send you a note the other day, but my browser shut down in the middle off it. I've lost the url- do I need to go to the site and sign up?
