Hi Lisa,
I would like for you to consider creating a place on the cell phone group where we can post links. I have looked through several of the past posts and there are links to some great sites. Unfortunately, they get lost in the shuffle of material. It would be great to have something on the front end where the links could be posted. This would be especially helpful for the newbies who come to the site looking for help, but might not know how to dig through the piles of data to find it. Let me know if you would like to chat.
Best,
Joe

Hi Lisa,

When asked you how to get more tech into my middle school (11X127) you advised me to do it myself. I'm following your advice; I'm just back from NECC09 and have lots of ideas to transform my classroom and to spread to my colleagues. Thanks for the advice. Deven

Hi Lisa,

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!

Thanks,

Alyshia Olsen

Hi Lisa,

With your work in instructional technology I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based, have a bunch of features, and free basic service. I think Wiziq, particularly, might be quite helpful to staff and students in New York City schools especially if the City schools are looking to go online a bit more.
