A Very Merry Christmas to All - From me and my family of elves.

Posted on December 24, 2007 at 7:03am 0 Comments

Well of course it's a little late to send a greeting, many of you are probably already nearing present opening time. However I would like to wish you Steve and all Classroom2.0 members a Wonderful Christmas, and a very happy new year.

The link leads to a greeting created in what is definitely my favorite Christmas Greeting app.

The Basics of This Program

There are three aspects to this program that help each school involved.

First, Daily Written Exchanges- NING, Facebook, Twitter, and Blogging Exchanges)

This program will provide a study of goals, methods and consequences of net publishing at school. The key question in this research will be to find out what motivates young people to be on-line in the private sphere and in what ways this motivation can be transferred, developed and used in classrooms in Lebanon, Jordan, Israel and the United States. This will be a place for teachers to show their best practices, share information, and students to communicate to other students all over the world.

Sample websites: Virtual Teacher Exchange Reber International School World Class Schools

Second, Virtual Mock Trial and Debate:

This program will provide practical information and problem-solving opportunities for students. The curriculum will survey the legal system including criminal law and procedures as well as individual rights and liberties in the areas of speech, press, assembly, religion and discrimination. Case studies, simulations, mock trials, and guest speakers from the international legal and law enforcement communities are among the class activities. Mock Trial allows high school students to experience the courtroom in a hands-on mode. The mock trials are set up and structured just like a real court, bound by the same rules. This will help students know exactly what role each of the different people in a court (judges, lawyers, witnesses, etc.) have in the justice system. Students in the
program are expected to participate in mock trial competitive activities. We will have four mock trial competitions through out the school year and six debate competitions.

We also need partner schools in Israel for a face to face exchange- contact Mike Cunningham ASAP

Hey, looks like great educators always flock to the best sites. Glad we connected here!

Thank you very much! I'll look into it. The Online Ed Program at the University where I work is still being developed; I'm proud to be a part of it. We pretend to reach those people who can't attend college because of time limitations or distance. I really want to make a difference, and that's the reason why I'm researching the best ways for them to learn.

I am the education manager with Glogster EDU. You appear to be an avid proponent of Glogster. We are always interested in feedback from our users to help us as we grow. Thanks so much!

Hi Susan,

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 You can find us at . 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, anything you like!

Hi, Susan. Thank you so much for responding. I apologize for the delay in responding.
We'd be interested first in finding partners for our sophomores (ages 15-16) who are reading the book, The Whale Rider. As our wiki shows, we do a range of different works, possibly some that will be studied in some distant place and on which our students can collaborate.
Even if we can't find a match for the sophs, i'm confident that someone in our district (K-12, 8,000 students or so) will be able to start the conversation at other levels.
You can write me at and I'll pass along your proposal to those who can leverage it.

Thank you again, Susan,

Dear Susan,

We already have the website of our project finished and we’d like to share it with you.

The goal of Bablingua is to offer good audiovisual materials filmed in Hispanic countries that can help teachers to enrich their classes. In the website there are short videos, long videos, vocabulary cards and a blog with free activities, games and new ideas for the foreign language class.

Please, visit us at :, and let us know your opinion, comments and ideas you have to improve it.

Alvaro and Laura
