Hi Tim. 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!

Nice page Tim, lots of info. I've been working with Bob Chappell and ExploreLearning for the past year and he is a GREAT guy! If you'd like more info on Gizmos, or just some links to good gizmos check out my wiki, and the link titled: the greatest gizmo list ever.

Hi Tim,

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

Hi Tim,

Since you are involved in virtual education you should check out wiZiQ's virtual classroom.

Tim,
I went to your blog about the Digital Equity Interview: Bonnie Bracey. The pages come up with just the comments, no blog text. I hit reload and got the same thing. Hummm....

Hi there! This shari from Sony - I am working on project involving video and technology in K-12. I would love to hear how your district is integrating video production into curriculum with students and teachers both using the tools.

I agree...

Tim: Thank you for sending out the link re: the Texas Virtual School Network. I made it to the 20 min mark (I assume, since there is no time stamp on the vid) and found myself struggling to remain interested. The vast majority of their talking points (i.e. bullet points) could have been sent out as a 2-5 page PDF...and they could have done a 5-10 min video that actually put some energy into 'selling' the program. The video is void of any effort to engage the audience or show what the courses/portals even look like. Was 57 min of a video really necessary? Do you -- from your professional seat -- think this video/launch was a success? Again, thank you for keeping me in the loop...but I am hoping that the state will do a deep-think as to the value of hour long videos if this is what they envision will be the outcome.
