About Me
I teach English and computer arts at an independent middle and high school in Montréal and recently defended my thesis for an M.A. in educational technology at Concordia University. The title for my thesis is “Online Collaborative Learning for High School Students Using a Blended Approach for the Promotion of Self-Monitoring Skills”. Yes, it is long-winded.

My current interests are reading any literature I want to (now that I have finished my thesis!), managing three digitally native teenagers, contributing meaningfully to Women of Web 2.0, and exploring tools that will make learning a more engaging experience for my students. You can learn more about me from my post on “Let’s Play tag in the Blogosphere“.

Why Social Networks for Educators' Professional Growth

Posted on March 24, 2007 at 9:13pm 0 Comments

I was pleased today to discover this new initiative by Steve Hargadon and others. Below are some of my thoughts on the importance of social networks for the professional development and growth of educators.



Social Networks - Challenge and Fun!



It has been an exceptionally busy 9 or 10 months. Although I have long finished my course work for a graduate degree in educational technology, over this time period I have developed richer and more meaningful relationships… Continue

Hi. Welcome to Classroom 2.0 I am starting a new program at my school called "Beyond the Classroom" and I hope you will be a part of it.  My Goal: connect my students in Brandon, South Dakota, USA  to other students around the world to learn about school and life in other countries. I want to connect with five different places around the world and correspond via my blog to learn about culture and life in our respective places. I teach 6th grade (11-12 year olds) but the subject and age doesn’t matter. I have done this in the past with places like Turkey, Scotland, and Brazil. There are many things we can do with this to make it a very enriching experience. If you are willing to be a part of this, we will talk about the details at that point. My school year starts August 22, 2011.  Visit my blog to learn a little bit about me and my teaching.  http://waterforsixthgrade.blogspot.com

Thank you for your consideration.

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 Marco Morales; 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. I found you when I searched for middle schools on classroom20, and since our project is specific to middle schools, 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, 2008, 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 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,

Marco Morales
