I just checked out the student story casting that you posted on your website. Very Nice!! I'm wondering what your thoughts are about this project now that you've finished it. Would you have done it again the same exact way? How might you have tweaked it? Did the students approach the work differently because of the medium? If so, how?
To be honest David, I have just started a new social network designed to explore content issues as they relate to technology. This type of a posting would be ideal for the new network. It's located at http://www.teachingcontent.ning.com. I'm hoping that you'll consider taking a look at it and perhaps posting some thoughts about this project on the site.
Thanks and even if you are not interested in posting more about the project on the new site, I'd love to learn more about it.
I lead the Tutor/Mentor Connection, based in Chicago. I host a conference every six months and the next will be in Olympia Fields on Nov. 15 and 16. At http://www.tutormentorconference.org you can get details.
I'm trying to build connections with teachers and youth in surburban high schools who might connect with youth and volunteers in inner city programs, using the technology of web 2.0 for those connections.
Take a look at some of the information on my profile to see some of the ideas you might adopt in your teaching and service learning projects.
