Crossposting and networking

Today I would like to write about my problems to keep pace with the new developments in social networking. I am a member of Facebook, keep contact in skype, have been twittering for quite some time now, having courses on at least 6 moodle installations , 4 Mahara ePortfolio platforms as I work for 2 schools, in teacher training and online training and am registered to lots of forums .... which I try to follow regularly... all this has been giving me precious insight in new ways of teaching and… Continue

About Me
If we don't grab the future, the future will grab us.... so lets work together!
I am teaching English and IT in a vocational school, partly with teenagers, partly with adults. I have been using digital media and the internet in classroom since the beginning of "digital age" - which was???? -- and have also been working as a teacher's trainer for multimedia, moodle and ePortfolio which is my latest project in education. I generally find it much easier to work with students than with colleagues as there is still a long way to go before we reach digital literacy .... but a lot of teachers are "on the move" now so they will hopefully catch up a bit on the digital native students... and I'm trying to help them on their way to 21st century education.. The biggest problem often is administration which is slow in adopting and supporting these efforts...
Recently I have worked in a European Project "MOSEP" - More self-esteem with your EPortfolio where we did the testing phase in Germany with a group of teachers. You can find the materials in a WIKI and if you are interested in the project, just drop me a line... - you will also find a blog entry on this project.

The 6th graders at Chichester Central School in Chichester, New Hampshire (USA), would like to invite you to participate in our blog.  We have created a blog, which we hope will allow us to explore varying diets from around the world.  Our goal is to understand what other country’s diets consist of and what they consider to be healthy.  Here in New Hampshire, we eat a lot of seafood and lobsters as we are so close to the Atlantic Ocean.  We also grow and eat fresh corn, apples, strawberries, blueberries and even pumpkins.  If you are interested, please visit our blog at and respond to the “World Diets” page.  If you respond, it would be helpful if you could include which country or area of the world you are responding from.  If you are not interested, it would be much appreciated if you could pass this along to a friend or colleague that may be. 

We here in New Hampshire look forward to your response.  Thanks

-Chris Gagnon – 6th grade teacher

I like the sounds of the portfolio project. I'm a bit familiar with the European Language Portfolio, which we are adapting for companion use here in the US. I was also struck by your admonition that we must grab the future before it grabs us -- reminded me of my favorite new quote from a new Broadway musical, that "The future's our's if we can free it!"

Hallo Sigi

Ja, das ist vielleicht eben auch der Knackpunkt bei all diesen Social Networks, dass immer die selben Leute networken. Wie dem auch sein, ich freue mich, wieder mal was von dir zu hören. wir sind derzeit in der Einführungsphase von Mahara - unendlich vielArbeit!

Gruss Martin

Hi Sigi,
Good to hear from you. However we cannot have you having doubts about 3D virtual worlds and language teaching :-).
After all my guess is that you will be invited to join a European project experimenting with this after the holidays, if I get my way.
In the meantime look for ideas and links on this part of my site:
BTW Just noticed that the SLANGUAGES 2008 Conference presentations are no longer available. Will contact them.
Gute Ferien! Ton

Hello Sigi,
To change your CR2.0 theme, click on "My Page" on the links at the top. In that page there is some small text under your photo and name that says "change photo or theme". It's easy to miss. We share a fun and functional wordpress theme. I like your content too. Peace, Mike
