Greetings Anne
Yes, I certainly have a challenge up my sleeve. The ICTPD contract runs for three years and so I am also rather lucky to have a base school towork alongside and model with. Regards Jeanette

Hi Anne!

Thanks for the note. I am just getting into this whole 2.0 thing. I used a blog for my American Government students this Semester to talk about current event issues. It worked really well, but I think I am going to use a Ning instead of a blog next semester. I just think it is more user friendly.

Astride from that I have had success using video games. A good one I recommend your world history teachers use is peacemaker.

I am really interested in SKYPE and will be looking into it today. How did you make the connections with people from other nations (especially your Antartica scientist)? I enjoy your videos above with (your?) students. Is there a tool you recommend for this?

Hello Anne.Thanks for your encouragement. I am realising that it's people like you who are willing to take the time to comment and share who make the networks and blogs such a pleasure to be part of. I think being an ICT teacher at the moment would be so exciting.I know Visual Arts is becoming more fun since I began blogging.It makes you more aware of the World being flat and of where we fit into the Big Picture. I will keep an eye out on your posts. I'm still learning about Web 2.0 and loving it. Here's to a great year in 2009.Cheers, Yvonne.

Hi Anne,

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 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!

Hello! Thanks for finding me:) I teach grades 10 - 12 web design, multimedia, and computer science in Louisiana. I noticed you teach grades 3 - 12. Is that the same as our grades in USA?

Hm. I dunno--I'd have to talk to my Spouse-Creature about it, since he's the techno-guy here (my computer's not set up for video). Let me see what he says!

Thanks! I speak at so many schools, school library, and teacher conferences, that I can always hold up my end of the conversation when books and literacy are an issue.

Thanks, Anne!

Have you been at Hawkesburn for a number of years?

Do you find that you have to combine classes (like Year 11 and 12 ) to be able to run a group in your school? Or can you use the DECV to fill the gaps?

Hi Anne,

I remember your presentation at VITTA a while ago when you were using Soundhouse (?). I've always been in awe of you!

I was briefly on the VITTA committee last year as I had a go at managing the 3in6 video competition since Keith Richards was passing it on before he retired.

Soon realised that I was probably not serious enough to stay on the committee and made the most of the experience but did not try to go on it again in 2008.

How do you do all the things that you do?

Regards, Bill Oldham

Hi, Anne. So far, we've done work on Voicethread and blogging. We also do as much work as we can on our Smartboard. Thanks for befriending me. :) I look forward to learning more from everyone.
