"The idea of Green Schools has advanced so far beyond what we used to think of - recycling, turning off the lights, etc. Now we are looking more at the ideas of sustainability - cultural, social, economic, and resources. This opens up so many…"

Okay to Bailout Wall Street but not K-12 Education - huh?

Posted on September 21, 2008 at 10:10pm 0 Comments

The news about covering the gushing wounds of greed on Wall Street is common news around the globe. Just how much are the taxpayers – you and me – going to pay in the name of stabilizing the financial markets?



"We're talking hundreds of billions of dollars - this needs to be big enough to make a real difference and get at the heart of the problem. "This is the way we stabilize the system." Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson



I understand why the Bush leadership is doing this… Continue

Hi J. I was wondering if you and your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some educator contacts you could direct me to.

You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!

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 has taken a year off to work on an education related project. Since you are in the 'connecting content and technology' groun, 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 ! Thank you for your message about environment. I'll give you more infos about what we do about Education to Environment:
1. Save the Planet Project: this is a european Comenius Project with partners in Spain, Italy, Slovenia, Slovakia and... France. We'll prepare it for next schoolyear. I have a preparatory document about it (in english but translation in english is bad, let me some time to improve it !). Comenius Projects are specific to the European Union. But i know that thera are now Comenius Mundus. I have to check this info
2. we're just running discussion on my ning about environment with an american school at Buffalo, N.-Y. to copare american and european policy. You can join us if you are interested
3. I'll join your Green Schools Group inside Classroom 2.0
Have a nice day !
