The wiki has been an awesome resource for families. There has been high participation at home as students use the study links and families post messages or use the social networking aspect to it. At school the wiki is our jump off for any computer based assignment. The one thing I havent had time to keep up with is the "student of the week", where I was hoping to have that student design their own page for the week. Overall, we are very please and 'sold' on Wetpaint as a host.

No worries coming up with an idea for the Applied ID project....since you are already a Tech Resource teacher ......you are doing many interesting projects, I'm sure. I am learning to use an Interwrite Pad, planning a training, and posting on a web blog. One of my friends who is an ITRT is doing a project creating Jing screencasts and creating a web blog using Wordpress. You will do great!! Feel free to check in anytime!! Take care!

Hi Brian!!
I am doing Applied ID Project portion of ITMA which is sorta like a thesis...and will be my last class before I put together my portfolio and finish next semester. Very exciting!! Please feel free to ask questions any time.....I will be happy help any way that I can. It is a great program. One of the hardest parts though is feeling isolated when completing assignments......but the online aspect is awesome!! :)

Glad the SOL Technology Integration web page at http://www.rockingham.k12.va.us/resources/soltechintegration.htmI helped your teachers. If any of the teachers you work with have files to share, please email me the link of where they are posted online or email me the files so they can help other teachers.

I see you have been to China. Any chance you have pictures in a PowerPoint to help teachers teach 2nd graders about China? If you do have one, create one, I would love to add a link to it online.....

PS I love the show "Chuck" too.

Hi Brian,
Sorry for being rubbish and not getting back to you after you left a comment for me, it has been an unbelievable few months. It is interesting to find someone who has a similar role across the water.
When you do get to Europe in your travels it is a brilliant place and London is a must see, not as nice a Paris, but has a different character.
If you get the chance you need to get out of London and head North to my home town of Newcastle, a stunning city full of people with smiles. Or my current home city of Leeds, with its surrounding hills and country to the West.

Hello Brian, we have had so many interupted days of school, so I hope your school has not finished for the year. Our students have only just finished their videos on a typical day, so when I get the completed movie, could you remind me where I actually upload them too. I have forgotten and I am trying to work through the forest of my emails and work it out. Thanks in advance

Brian,

Yes, it is Elephant Hill. Guilin was an oddly beautiful place to visit.

Hi Brian, the recording didn't have video although we had a whiteboard, tex and audio. I added a link to the youtube video that Yaodong Chen took during the session so that you could see the classroom setup.

Far and away one of the best blogs site I have read. Not to mention if u are over in China I am super jealous being a huge fan of asian culture/movies. My wife and I have always dreamed of going to Japan but alas that has never happened. Actually, we were going to goto New Zeland for our honeymoon on a LOTR Tour, but I couldn't convince her that spending time in the Shire would be great ;-)

Hey Brian, thanks for the welcome from the U.S. I am actually in Boston at the moment and I think you guys call an emergency teacher a substitute teacher.

Hi Brian,
We include the 'communications' part in IT to make it ICT, probably because it's education-based. Don;t yet know content of my other subjects as I am only doing one per semester, but current course is ICT and Classroom Practice, which involves embedding Web 2.0 tools into teaching, using wikis, blogs, podcasts, webquests, social bookmarking, RSS etc. It's extremely interesting and a great way to fine tune the internet to classroom teaching.
Thanks for getting in touch, hope to speak to you again. Regards,
Paul K

Hi Brian. Australia has different school systems in each of its six states and two territories. I teach in Victoria, and Year 7 is mainly 12 and 13 year olds, whilst Year 8 is for 14 and 15 year olds: so young teenagers basically. Our students start school in Year Prep, and the following year is called Year 1. The powers that be are trying to bring in a national system. We have a very large and powerful Catholic System which provides excellent education, and a smaller, but influential private system. The Federal and State governments subsidize the Catholic system, and give a lesser amount to Private schools, which are mainly Protestant. This is a sore point amongst non Catholics in this country.
It is interesting that you have been to China. I was in China in 1986, and stood on the Great Wall, however, back then, the people were only allowed to wear green or blue. How times have changed.

Thanks for the encouragement, Brian. I hope that I can convince some people in our school system that the physical environment is just as important as the rules we stand by in creating a learning climate.
