I don't know when the next Google Teacher Academy will be. They may be slowing down the # of academy's due to the economy. The only expense is your travel arrangements/accommodations to the location . They usually rotate between Google offices: CA area, Chicago, New York and Denver. If I hear anything I send you the info.

Hi MJ,

You mentioned in a comment that you're teaching a class with new collaborative tools. We've created a tool called DeepDebate which is for logical and structured conversations, where the highest-rated ideas can rise to the top. It's built to keep conversations organized better than wikis and blogs, especially when large numbers of people are involved.

Because we're just starting to open it up to the educational world, we're looking for some teachers that might be interested in trying out new things.

We started our first pilot project with teachers in PA last week and this is what they had to say about it.

You also specifically mentioned combining online and face-to-face conversation. We have been working on a hybrid online/offline model in high schools in PA. This is what we learned, and there's so much more that is possible.

Please drop me a line if interested!

The Google Teacher Academy hosts workshops at various Google offices around the country. Once you've gone through the training, the online GCT discussion group is there to answer your questions and share resources. It's probably one of the best online groups I have been involved in.

Hi,

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 'e-learning and online teaching' group, 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 a competition for startup funding 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

Thank you MJ for your business site. I have joined. We love connecting with the world, as we are a small country school in Australia and have connected with many different countries, using blogging, shared wikis, voicethreads, nings and videoconferencing via skype, elluminate or discoverE.

Hi MJ,

Another cool thing about Wiziq is that you can embed a future virtual classroom session right into you're blog. Here's an example from Nellie Deutsch.

Hi MJ,

If your looking for web tools to help teach business online check out Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's web based power point presentation platform. Great for uploading power points with or without audio to the web.
