Hi, Clare,
Congratulations on all your accomplishments for you and your students! They have created some great works.
What a great video series. I'd like to know about how you, created this video series, and learn more about I-pods in the classroom.

Hi Claire,

My name is Alyshia Olsen; 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. Since you are in the 'e-learning and online teaching' group, 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, 2009, 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 a competition for startup funding on You can find us at . 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 at 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, anything you like!

Hi Clare,

It's been a while since I've been in here. I joined after you sent me the email asking where my page was!! Now I'm a member of a whole heap of pages/programs like this. I am experimenting more and more and I hope in 09 to be using it much more frequently in my classes. Our resources are fairly meagre at Monbulk but they will prove handy nevertheless.
Have a wonderful Xmas - if you're available over January, we'd love to catch up :) M&B

Hi Clare,

With your work in elearning I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based, have a bunch of features, and free basic service. I think Wiziq, particularly, might be quite helpful to staff and students at Ringwood with their online global projects.

Thanks for adding me as a colleague. I really enjoy hearing what teachers in Australia are working on. I do live in your equivalent of "the bush", so I really depend on the internet to vitalize my professional development.

Clare, how about the book set in New Zealand, The Whale Rider, do you know it? My sophomores are about to begin it, and I'd like to get my English students in touch with some kiwis via wiki. Any advice?

I think that is a wonderful use of the technology. Next year, I hope to set up a class facebook for my senior years. I also teach commerce but mainly ICT and just accounting at year 11 this year. Whenever you have time I would love to see it.

Thank you for all your information. I am also going to be presenting at the home eco conference, so I hope I can catch up with you there. Your presentation was really impressive and I was sorry it had to be cut short. I dont think I got your notes. I have done a lot of work in blogging, virtual classrooms and web2.0 use and also got knocked back from funding so I know what disappointment is.

Hi Clare How did you go using myspace in class? How did you use it and for what purposes? Were you involved in the knowledge bank conference earlier on this year as I thought the students spoke really well on 'good' use of myspace etc.

Hey, Clare! I'd like to see if some collaboration between my English students and your Geography students would be possible. Our space is at
What do you think?
