Hello Michael

I am a high school science teacher for 15 years. Due to district-wide budget constraints I will be moved from teaching physics to teaching chemistry next year.

I plan to use the summer months to get ready and I would like to integrate Classroom 2.0 effectively into my curriculum.

I hope to hear from you and others on this webste and to discuss and formulate ideas and methodologies to create a more inquiry-based approach to learning science in the 21st century classroom.

Hi Alyshia,

Sounds like an interesting project. And yes, I agree....the landscape of education will certainly be different in 10 years...maybe sooner. I'll take a look at your website, and provide feedback soon. Good luck with your project, and feel free to email or send me a post anytime.

Hi Michael,

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!

Also, ScreenFLow works better that Jing and seems very easy to use. I would like to have some of my best labs and demos for other teachers to see and use so I think keeping them short helps. You can download a demo ( for Mac) and the program costs $99. Take care, Kevin

ScreenFlow info is here.
It only runs on the Mac, though.

Hi Mike. I don't know of any Ph.D. online ETEC programs. There are a few Ed.D. and Ed.S. programs that I've found, including Towson, Pepperdine, and Missouri University. Thanks for the note.

I do some work online with a math class I teach because everyone in the class has a laptop and I sometimes give tutorials online with elive. Most of my work is in the classroom,

Thanks Michael!
I'm just back from extended maternity leave, so feeling my way with new courses etc... Really happy to be back in the Chem room again though! Must say I enjoy the buzz.
This network seems a fantastic resource... Looking forward to having the time to explore it properly!

Hi Mike,
I have a year 9 science class (14-15 year olds) who are doing a chemistry of life unit at present. What sort of project did you have in mind?
Regrads, Britt

Bonjour Mike
There is so much online for language-learning. If you want self access stuff rather than links for French teachers, just click on French and +student in my del.icio.us from My Languages
This tag is aimed at self-access materials for my students. If you are more auditority do check the podcasts too as they are available for all levels of proficiency.

Hi Mike,
nice to meet you :)
yes indeed Munich is a very nice city. If your friend is living there you shouldn't miss to visit Munich and your friend.

Hi Michael
Yes U o G has a large number of courses which suprised me too when I first went there. On the other hand I recently read Penn State has something like 1700 online courses. Mindboggling. We have a group of about 50 people supporting the effort of both online as well as F2F extention courses . I also teach as a sessional at another U where there are about 50 courses, mostly in the area of Education. It's a growing and interesting field. My current interest are in quality standards for OTL...there is a wide variety of content, and not all good out there....

Nice to meet you
