Hi Daniel,

I will be happy to share my projects with you and look for new ways to collaborate. I believe that a real change in education will come from the bottom up,through private initiatives and through the direct involvement of individuals (parents,educators) ,associations,foundations  and corporations.

I have coached in 2011 a team of kids (forth grade) to the FLL robotics competition and I will participate this year also.These days I have contacted the local Goodwill and Salvation Army chapters and offered them some free robotics classes for disadvantaged kids.

I will take a look at your web site to learn more about your activities.

Best regards,

Hi Daniel--- A thousand apologies for the delay in this response! I've been searching for you over at Educators' PLN, and I just figured out that you were here at Classroom 2.0! I'm taking a look at your organization; thanks for pointing me to it. I'm right here on campus, so I'm very interested in hearing what people have to say at the conference in May. -- Again, sorry about the delay. --Tim

Sounds great! I know Janine Kessler who teaches with your nephew. I am leaving town for a few days but I would love to get in touch with you in July about this. I think it would be a great thing for my students as well as yours!

Thanks for the link. This looks like a great resource.

HI - It looks like you do amazing work. I definitely think there are great stories to tell about your program. My school year is at an end this week, so I can't recruit students to do stories. But perhaps next school year when I teach a writing class. Or maybe when I finish my book I can do a story! Thanks for getting in touch. Best, Lisa

By chance, can you recommend any national conferences that focus on using new media in the classroom?

Hi Daniel,
Thanks for your message. I know a bit about Mentors Inc and have heard that they are doing great things with DC area kids. I'm not familiar with the Tutor/Mentor Connection, but plan to check-out that website along with the maps. Will be in touch!

Daniel - Thanks for the prompt response. It's cool to see the use of technology in your program. By the way, Adobe has some cool, free, tools online now that might be useful to you: Buzzword, a collaborative word processor; ConnectNow a free web conferencing tool for up to three people; and acrobat.com where you can upload and share files - including converting PowerPoint to Flash-based preview. Sorry if this sounds like an ad - but it *is* free, and useful for educational purposes. I'd be happy to explain it more if you or your network are interested.

The Math Collaborative is just getting started, with a few pilot programs just getting underway, but it's focused on providing tutoring services (1-on-1 or small groups) through a virtual classroom. It seems to have great appeal to those tutoring many students and driving endless miles to connect. It should also be a boon to tutors trying reach more inner city students.

Daniel, I have great admiration for your work - congratulations on your remarkable program. Doyou have any affiliate program in Boston?

Hi Daniel. I was wondering if any of your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some other educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!

Hi Daniel,
thanks for the comment on my profile and Scribblar.com

I'd like to discuss ways in which your site could leverage Scribblar and would like to help your non profit site. Let's chat. stefan @ muchosmedia DOT com

That sounds really interesting. When I was in high school ( back when dinos roamed the earth), I worked at a summer camp through Urban Gateways that brought together inner-city and suburban teens as counselors for children from their neighborhoods. Perhaps we could connect on something like that. Just thinkin...

Hi Daniel,

Thank you for your note! I appreciate you adding us! I will communicate with my EDU team to have teachers contact you for content ideas, sounds fantastic. We often get teachers who are looking for help with new ideas, so I can send them to you as well.

I'll take a closer look at your site soon and see what else I can do to help and we can connect.

Thanks again. Happy New Year!

Thanks for the information. Please let me know if you think of a way for us to collaborate. I like what I see here.

Hi Daniel,

With your interest in online tutoring (I'm assuming since you're here) I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's web based power point presentation platform. Both are web based and offer a feature rich free basic service that, I think, will be helpful in your online work with your Chicago kids.

Hey there Daniel,

Thanks for the heads up and joining our community. Please spread the word and invite others in your network.

Hope to see you around the web and I am going over now to check out some of your links.

Thanks Daniel. We are starting a wetpaint site called science21. We are hoping to share resources and generate discussions. I'll be flashing it up soon, so that it looks more interactive and useful.

The Tutor/Mentor Conference in Chicago was last Friday, Nov. 21. On our ning.com page some participants are commenting and we have links to blogs with additional articles about the conference. I hope those of you who are interested will take a look.

We certainly participate in all efforts for assisting those at the poverty level in Aurora. Our focus is through our Family Literacy component and offshoots such as our Family Tech program here in the AELC. Giving the students the necessary tools to function in society is important to their eventual success. Let me know if I can help you in any way.
