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' 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 an idea competition 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!

Regarding your IC issues, I have been administrating it for over 2 years now. I also have used it as a teacher along with trainning parents on the portal features. Let me know if I can help!

I have had the website opened for our teachers to do exactly what you are talking about trying with your first graders. I had one teacher try to tell me it was just for teachers to network. I said why can't students network too? When you create your own community, restrictions are as tight or not tight depending on your personal feelings and choice. It can be very powerful with teachers and students collaborating and conducting projects together!

My Hill City teachers are in 3rd and 4th, but now that we are in our 2nd year, we are trying to get the 5th grade teachers involved too. I'm open to doing collaborative stuff again this year...I'm sure my teachers are too.

Hi Jill. I LOVED your digital storytelling workshop. I have already downloaded Photo Story 3 and bought a headset at Wal-Mart! :) I have a question about it though. I can see my 7th graders not wanting to draw their own pictures....any other suggestions as to how they could illustrate their stories?

This will be my first year teaching CONNECT (Connecting Content with Technology) at Emporia Middle School. I am supposed to start the year off teaching the basics such as KEYBOARDING, internet safety, basics of Windows and Microsoft Office, etc.... Do you have any ideas?

Also, I am wanting to create a webpage for my class. What would you suggest is the easiest way to go about doing this? I also want to make a type of online journal on the site where each student can go onto the webpage and post thoughts, journal, etc... Is it possible to do this with ONLY allowing my students access to the blog? Sorry for all of the questions!!! I am just a newbe and I need advice! :)
