"I use Skype for one to one videoconferencing, but have experimented with DimDim, ooVoo, and TokBox. I use Flashmeeting to broadcast once a week to my classes (25 students max). I have converted all my primary communication to Skype. Love it!"

Ipods and other Portable Devices in the Classroom: Just a trend?

Like everyone on here I am passionate about integrating technology to further engage and enhance student learning. I have recently acquired an Ipod Touch (my own personal device) and have been trying to find out more about its educational applications. For myself I can see it as a great way to make observations about student learning and make notes about how I can improve my lessons. I appreciate convenience of having this device available to me when I need to reference a piece of information.I…See More

Hi,

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 have 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!

Thanks,

Alyshia Olsen
