The 6th graders at Chichester Central School in Chichester, New Hampshire (USA), would like to invite you to participate in our blog. We have created a blog, which we hope will allow us to explore varying diets from around the world. Our goal is to understand what other country’s diets consist of and what they consider to be healthy. Here in New Hampshire, we eat a lot of seafood and lobsters as we are so close to the Atlantic Ocean. We also grow and eat fresh corn, apples, strawberries, blueberries and even pumpkins. If you are interested, please visit our blog at cgagnon.edublogs.org and respond to the “World Diets” page. If you respond, it would be helpful if you could include which country or area of the world you are responding from. If you are not interested, it would be much appreciated if you could pass this along to a friend or colleague that may be.
We here in New Hampshire look forward to your response. Thanks
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 Ideablob.com You can find us at http://ideablob.com/3975 . 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 alightlearning.com, anything you like!
Hi Derwin -- I'd like to invite you to join a Classroom 2.0 group called Canadians Mashup. I'm trying to build a network of Canadian educators and bloggers. No discussions yet. I'm just starting out by trying to find where everyone lives and what they teach. If you're interested, please add me as a colleague as well.
Immanuel Christian is in Winnipeg, not far from Kildonan Place mall, close to the Transcona end of town. I'm actually at Linden Christian now, not far from the Grant Park Mall. I don't know how much that tells you.
