Pleased to know you.
My name is Ms. Taddaw suchin nickname eve I participated in classroom activities on programming in the classroom. I need help in programming. I want to ask your help.
Thanks for the welcome
I am secondary school trained,and work casually at the moment. I have just enrolled in a masters course in learning sciences and technology at Sydney Uni, I really enjoy classroom interaction, however have a long way to go to develop a more refined teaching technique and experience.
Hi JoNelle. I was wondering if you have any high school contacts who would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
With your work as a Technology Specialist, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service.
I'm sending out messages to everyone I know right now, and this classroom20 network is no exception. (I've also sent this out on other Ning networks you may be a part of.) 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 'connecting content and technology' groun, 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 an idea competition on Ideablob.com You can find us at http://ideablob.com/3975 . 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 alightlearning.com, anything you like!
We have our kids one full day week. I would guess that kids could learn the software, build the robots and compete in one challenge in about 12-15 hours. We start with the "Can Do" challenge and recommend no more than 3 on a team. We add sci fi literature and history of robots as an intro. Check out the Scientic Frontier America website for robotics videos. I'll also develop a robot website to store all our stuff so check my website http://adifferentplace.org
Let me know what else you need, I'll be glad to send you my latest grant proposal ($5000.00), it'll tell you exactly what you need to buy.
Thanks! I have really enjoyed Weather Pixie and Voki. Today's blog posting in the n2teaching blog is about my initial evaluations of these cool tools. I did mention your name with a link to your profile here. N2TEACHING blog: http://samccoy-n2teaching.blogspot.com/
There are so many cool things to do you have to prioritize. I have placed a TappedIn calender of events rss feed on my Classroom2.0 page. Check up on it periodically to see if there are events that may be interesting or helpful.
I am going to have to try WeatherPixie first I think. Voki next. LOL These look fun and oops by the way educational; the best kind of learning ;D
Hi JoNelle, yes. You can look at one I use with some of my classes. Some, like my planning wiki and our staff wiki, are private. Check out http://adminplc.pbwiki.com/ This wiki is being used by an administrator group for doing collaborative work.
http://social907.pbwiki.com/ This wiki was used last year by my social 9 class to gather information and do assignments.
I am using a wiki with my Communication Production Technology class for all their work and assignments. With this, I want all assignments to be handed in on the wiki, getting rid of all need for students to hand in homework!
