"Sounds like a online networking group to start ;-) I think the biggest help that this online archive would do is help new students or teachers to become more familiar with expectations and ideas for pbl. We like to think that the archive would be…"
"I have to put in a plug for the web based tool Project Foundry. I have seen the software change based on feedback over the past 5 years or so. Students and teachers who use PF say they can't imagine managing projects without it. There are more…"
I think the following may work to shift the framework in a traditional model:

Hi Aaron. I was wondering if your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. Perhaps you have some educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
ahh yeah, Action Valley. It's a rough town, but that's a story for another time. Last week was actually kind of refreshing, it got me motivated to get things going for the school year. I'll touch base with you soon on a project I'm getting going with some of the Wisconsinites.
I am relatively new here. I am from Ghana and I'm just here to learn, contribute as well as link up with like-minded people who will be willing to share their experiences as well as help in spreading the concept of distance learning and adult education to Africa, which lags behind as far as education is concerned. My company has developed a television program called 'ADULTS IN EDUCATION' which is used in teaching,especially adults, how to read and write as well as general tips on how to take care of oneself. We also treat social issues as well. Television is still the widest means of disseminating information here in Ghana.
Too bad we missed each other! Things are moving here... figuratively and literally:)
Just moved into a beautiful new used house and very excited about the improvements and progress of Project Foundry. Lil' Gracie is just the cutiest little thing! Check out her blog if you're ever bored: http://babykrukowski.blogspot.com
Expect an update next week and then again in September.
Hi, Aaron - I didn't recognize you with your, uh, interesting photo (kind of artsy-angry-serial-killer-ish).
Thanks for your policy activism session at MNCS this week! I thought you might like to know how I have already benefited from utilizing several of the techie ideas that you shared. First, I set up a Google Alert for education blogs; when I got the alert this morning, one of the links led me to CR 2.0 where I have been learning more about the educational applications of collaborative technology (including Ning).
Finally, I'd like to point out that the "About Me" section of my CR2.0 page will serve as my 2-minute (well, 5-minute) "elevator talk," if you're willing to accept that assignment a day late. ;-)
Aww, thanks for being my friend :) We'll see if this goes anywhere. I went to forums and a question about social networking (I e-mailed you). I think there are lots of tecchy people on here, so it can be helpful to dialogue with them.
