Reaching out from the professional sector to educators

I'm working to promote international collaborations between educators.

Over the last week I've put up a site where educators can register for

what I've been calling the International Educators Collaborative.

It's still a little vague what that means because the more I talk to

educators about it the more the idea starts shift and come into greater

focus. My real purpose is to establish a means for educators to use the

web… Continue

Integrating technology into education

This was a rather long forum post I made that I thought might do better as a blog post.

I think the biggest disconnect with teachers comes when a technological medium requires too much time to understand or maintain. That's

probably part of the enthusiasm behind social networking; you have a

profile page that says who you are and then you can go about

communicating with people who are online in real time. It's simple and

requires no technological knowledge or… Continue

Making connections across networks

I want to write a little bit more about the database I've put online

for educators that want to collaborate directly with other classrooms.

I got the idea from interacting with teachers on ning. I've been trying to contact as many teachers as possible through many networks

and it dawned on me that I'm making connections that a lot of educators

need but can't make on their own because they don't have the time. I

also noticed that a database of these people doesn't… Continue

International Education Collaboration

Many teachers are becoming aware of the advantages of connecting with

international classrooms. Resources for connecting and facilitating

these exchanges are at best crude. Examples of these technologies are

Twitter, email, Skype, Second Life, IM, wikis, blogs, and GTalk. While

each of these… Continue

International Teachers Collaborative Database

Today I got the International Teachers Collaborative Database online.

If you go to http://www.oratiobrevis.com and fill out the short survey

I'll be able to get you in touch with a teacher who wants to

collaborate with your classroom. It's also a way for me to keep track

of all the educators I've been getting in touch with.

Even if you think I already have all your information there may be something missing in my records. Also, by putting your information… Continue

Online Field Trip Collective

An idea has been proposed by an educator I'm in contact with to share

field trips among classrooms online. The classroom collaboration is

intended to increase student exposure to locations, history, and ideas

otherwise not geographically available. This concept of touring the

real world using… Continue

An open letter to Mark, a teacher.

I just wrote this letter to a teacher on Ning and I thought I would share it here.


I'm looking for Beta testers for web application I'm working on located at http://christonium.com. I've singled you out because you're obviously trying to start a education focused community here and I think christonium is an ideal solution for long term education development and personal…
