oops sorry. I was checking out the MSSE staff in thinking about courses to take this summer and stumbled across your page. I'd never seen classroom 2.0 so was trying it out and ended up stuck in here...
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.
Ah La Crosse! I went to school at UWEC and so I took a few road trips to La Crosse back in the day.
I've been living in Guam for the past 17 years. I get back to the Twin Cities, where I'm from, usually during the summers. The last time I taught on the mainland was in 1990 in Milwaukee. I've only joined the IT world for the past year or so. I'm wondering what it's like back in the States? How pervasive is it in the schools? As far as Guam goes, it's a very small group of IT educators here.
My methods students are now in their student teaching, and we'll continue to use our wiki throughout the semester. I have a similar goal to yours, i.e. fostering a community of pre-service teachers that I hope will continue to participate in our wiki as they enter teaching. I would definitely be interested in collaboration opportunities.
